Yamaha have been building instruments for many years, and have a fantastic reputation when it comes to their guitars. When Yamaha first began to build guitars, they started out with classical models in the 1940s. The CG102 is an elegant classical guitar which is designed to suit beginners and expert players alike.
The Yamaha CG series incorporate slightly thinner backs and thinner finishes for an all-round more comfortable feel. The body top is well constructed from spruce, providing superb projection from the soundhole. Yamaha have employed nato / meranti tonewoods in the formation of the back and sides of the CG102, adding warmth and richness to the guitar's tone. Despite the guitar's really affordable price, Yamaha have ensured that high quality tonewoods are used in its build.
The neck is made from nato and has a smooth feel in the hand, feeling comfortable even for beginners. Often a classical guitar is a great choice for a young starter as it enables them to get used to the feel of the instrument, while the nylon strings do not feel too harsh beneath the fingertips. A rosewood fingerboard of 52mm width tops the nato neck, offering wide, comfortable frets you can explore freely.
Hardware and Finish
The CG102 is kitted out with dependable tuners at the headstock, while the lower bout of the body is fitted with a reliable rosewood bridge that works relentlessly to improve sustain.
The combination of dependable hardware and top quality tonewoods work beautifully together, producing its responsive, well-balanced tone.
The body has a natural gloss finish and a traditional soundhole rosette for a stunning classical appearance. Whether you are a beginner, or a proficient classical musician, the CG102 is a real joy to play at any level.
