I ordered this as a gift the last week before Christmas, I decided to order it from Guitar Center because their site said you could return to store. I wasn't paying attention and didn't do the expedited delivery. I was concerned about getting a broken guitar the day after Christmas. I was very pleased it got here the Thursday before Christmas in perfect condition. This is a beautiful guitar with a warm sound, great size and sound for a beginner. Great price to pay for something that may or may not get a lot of use.

I've been playing for over 50 years. I've owned six different Yamaha guitars, still have a Classical that's 50 years old. I bought this 3/4 size Yamaha for myself to play in the living room along with YouTube to learn some new songs. The action from open to the 5th fret was ok, then at the 9th fret the strings were almost 1/2 inch from the finger board. I was playing it and slide from G to F, at F# the end of the fret was as sharp as an exacto knife, sliced the inside of my thumb. I couldn't believe the frets were left like that! I sent it back. I don't know if I was unlucky or Yamaha has changed? MusicFriends customer service was excellent.

Perfect guitar for my daughter's high school guitar class!

By Alex

Comments about Yamaha CGS Student Classical Guitar:

I am very glad I purchased this guitar for my daughter. Due to budget cuts, the guitars offered for student use are worn out, and the students cannot bring them home to practice. Also, my daughter has shorter arms so a full size guitar doesn't work well for her. Now with this very affordable, reduced size guitar, she can take her lessons and practice on the same instrument. Plus the instrument is in top notch shape. Excellent purchase.

Perfect for beginners and old hands alike

By Jesse

from Iowa

Comments about Yamaha CGS Student Classical Guitar:

I give classical guitar lessons and my students always come in with a cheaply made guitar they bought for almost as much money as this one. For just a little more, they could have had this gem. Most of my guitar students were about to give up when I bought three of this model -- one in each size. I let them borrow them for a few weeks and they absolutely fell in love with playing and really took off in their skills. They've all purchased this guitar now and they all love it.

You can't beat the price, playability, and sound quality of this guitar, no matter what size you need. My students begin around age 8 or 9 and the 1/2 size and 3/4 size are perfect for them.

I even hang up my Martin 000-16SM once in awhile to work out on this Yamaha!

Amazingly playable

By roadman

from Lafayette, IN

Comments about Yamaha CGS Student Classical Guitar:

So many child size guitars are just about unplayable. This little guitar is really pretty good. It even has a surprising amount of sustain. The Nylon strings are easier on the fingers. When you factor in the entry level price, it is a good value and works well for childrens lessons.

Excellent Songwriter's Instrument

    Best Uses

    • Home Jams

    • Travel

    Comments about Yamaha CGS Student Classical Guitar:

    This is an excellent, small size guitar. I have the 1/2 size version and I pick it up nearly every day to practice and write new material. It's especially handy in the early hours of the morning when the neighbors are asleep. This is obviously an inexpensive instrument but the tone and play-ability are exceptional. It's ALWAYS fun to play and it ALWAYS inspires me to write just another song or another bridge or another hook for whatever I've been working on. Overall I'd recommend this guitar to any beginner or any veteran. You'll love it.

    Awesome guitar

    By Maverick

    from Odessa,Texas

    Comments about Yamaha CGS Student Classical Guitar:

    My mother bought this guitar for me when I was 14 years old. I am now 27 and am still using it today. In fact I will be putting the now 10th set of string on this little baby so that I can start teaching my 8year old son And 3 year old daughter to play guitar. I am planning on buying the smaller version for the 3 year old seeing as mine is the full size one. I noticed how everyone complained about all the guitars staying in tune though.... In my experience if you play your guitar more than twice a week the strings will eventually stretch out to there desired position and hold a tune.... Mine has sat for weeks at a time while in high school and never lost a tune.... Until the recent battle with the three year old my strings were on there for 4 years and only had to be tuned the day I installed them and three times after that.... I used to carry my guitar everywhere with me and still would if I didn't have to work all day....
