Yamaha have been expertly crafting and developing real quality musical instruments for many decades, and they began with classical guitars as far back as the 1940s. The CG142C comes at an incredible price but is kitted out with all the top quality components you would usually expect from a much more expensive classical guitar. This full size classical guitar is ideal for beginners, young players or perhaps more experienced guitarists who are looking for quality musicianship on a cost-effective budget.
The CG142C has a traditional classical guitar body shape that sits perfectly against the body of the person playing it. This shape is enhanced by having thinner back and sides, which Yamaha have expertly developed. Do not be fooled by the price of the guitar as it is still 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, and is treated in a gloss natural finish.
A nato neck with a slightly thinner profile is firmly fitted to the body of the CG142C, so players with smaller hands will feel comfortable. The smooth nato neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard which plays host to the frets. The nylon strings feel less harsh beneath your fingertips, making this even better for younger players and beginners getting used to playing. The 25 9/16 inch scale length neck joins the body at the 12th fret.
Hardware and Finish
Yamaha have fitted white pearloid peg tuners to the headstock of the CG142C which work alongside the rosewood bridge fitted to the lower bout of the body to uphold tuning integrity with precision. The bridge, tonewoods and overall construction form a superb partnership which produce this guitar's deep, rich tone with plenty of sustain.
The body comes in a gloss finish with chrome hardware, all adding to its traditional style which is beautifully finished off by a soundhole rosette. The Yamaha CG142C is a well-designed classical guitar designed to please a wide range of musicians at an affordable price.
