Classical Body Shape
The C40 features a spruce soundboard, which benefits from the tonewood's ability to resonate with ease and projects the timbre of the instrument beautifully. Fingerpicked notes ring out with the utmost clarity, guaranteeing an understated yet vibrant dynamic range. The back and sides are crafted using meranti, which produces a robust mid-range that is infused with warmth and depth. The combination of the tonewoods gives the c40 a well-balanced timbre that is perfect for accessing a wide range of tones.
The lightweight design of the guitar makes it very comfortable to wield, and the gently curved sides allows the body to sit just right, when playing in a seated position. The body is finished with a simple yet stylish rosette encircling the soundhole. The guitar has also been coated with an ultra-thin lacquer finish, which protects it, whilst also allowing the woods beneath it to breathe and resonate freely.
The Yamaha C40 Classical Guitar’s neck is made of nato, which provides a sturdy playing support for executing intricate chords and fingering. Yamaha have also shaped the neck with a slender profile, benefitting players who are still developing finger strength and technique. Paired with the nato is a rosewood fingerboard to guarantee a luxurious feel for the fingers as you weave your way through compositions.
Fitted to the body is a tough rosewood bridge, which anchors each string securely to maintain intonation and sustain. The headstock is home to high quality tuning machines that carry out the task of upholding tuning integrity with absolute precision. From the moment you tune up, until the moment your finish playing, you can rest assured that the Yamaha C40 Classical Guitar will remain true throughout, encouraging you to develop and flourish with total confidence in your instruments ability to keep up with you.
