I love this guitar

By JsrNull

from Hughesville, MD

  • Great tone
  • Lows And Highs Balanced
  • Nice Feel To Satin Finish
  • No Problems With Setup

Cons

  • Dots On 5 7 Only
  • Low Action Can Buzz

Best Uses

    Comments about Yamaha CG122 Classical Guitar:

    I am a hobbyist and play for my own enjoyment primarily with no current aspirations to playing for groups either as an amateur or professional.

    I love this guitar. It is really affordable but a lovely instrument to listen to. The tone and the balance from low to high are perfect for me. The highs are clear and I do not have to hold back on the lows to keep them from overwhelming the highs. The satin finish is a delight to the touch and feels like wood should.

    I have only two issues with it. The lowered action requires a more careful placement of the capo to keep it from buzzing. I would have liked fret marker dots on 3 and 9 as well as 5 and 7 (I will be applying them myself).

    I enjoy playing this guitar so much, I do not know when or if I will ever look for another.

    SOUND HORRIBLE FOR THE PRICE

    By Guitar guy

    from Sioux Falls

    Comments about Yamaha CG122 Classical Guitar:

    Sound horrible, compared to the one I bought before. This made in China. The one I bought before made in Indonesia. Indonesia made sound better, and cheaper. Disappointed.

    The Cedar Version Is Excellent!

    • Minor Finish Issues

    • Making Great Music

    Comments about Yamaha CG122 Classical Guitar:

    Just an outstanding guitar. Tone is just as good as higher priced versions, and the action has been lowered from previous versions. BUT-I would strongly suggest getting the CG122MCH/Red Cedar Top in Matte Finish. It sounded better than the gloss versions, and WAY better than any of the spruce tops of this series! Also, you can spend more for different types of laminate sides, but I wouldn't. This is the best new guitar I have bought for the price, and a nice change from steel string acoustics. I bonded with this guitar from the start and just found music pouring out of it immediately. May upgrade to bone nut and saddle, but the tone already floors me. I checked out several other classical guitars, and this one was better than some $500 models. I liked it more than the popular Cordoba C5, but again, make sure to get a new one in Red Cedar and a Matte finish.
