For many years, Yamaha have been expertly crafting and developing instruments, and in the 1940s they began with classical guitars. The CG122MC comes at a low cost but is kitted out with all the top quality features and components you would usually find in a much more expensive guitar. This full size classical guitar is ideal for beginners, young players or perhaps more experienced guitarists who are looking for quality on a budget.
The CG122MC has a traditional classical guitar body profile that sits perfectly against the body of the person playing it. This is improved by the thinner back and sides, which Yamaha have expertly developed. Although the guitar comes at a very reasonable price, do not be fooled, as it is constructed using top quality materials to ensure a high quality sound and playing experience. A solid American cedar top works together with nato back and sides for a well-balanced, full-bodied tone.
The CG122MC has been fitted with a nato neck that has a slightly thinner profile, so players with smaller hands will feel comfortable. The smooth nato neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard which plays host to the frets. Thanks to its nylon strings it feels facile and flexible to your fingertips. The 25 9/16 inch scale length neck joins the body at the 12th fret.
Hardware and Finish
Yamaha have fitted reliable tuners to the headstock of the CG122MC which work alongside the rosewood bridge fitted to the lower bout of the body. The bridge, tonewoods and build form a superb partnership which produce this guitar's deep, rich tone with plenty of sustain.
The body has a matte finish with chrome hardware and white pearloid peg tuners, all adding to its traditional style which is beautifully finished off by a soundhole rosette. The Yamaha CG122MC is a well-designed classical guitar designed to please a wide range of musicians at an affordable price.
