What we say:

With a sound and feel that is way above the humble price tag, Yamaha's C40 classical guitar is understandably the first choice for students of classical technique everywhere. Schools love it, teachers love it and those with a burgeoning interest in all things nylon strung love it because they can dip a tow into the classical world and score themselves a good guitar without spending a large sum of money.

Once again, Yamaha impress with the level of detail they can cram into this low price point: you'll get a comfortable guitar with good tuners and a sweet tone that encourages you to play. The 2 ply body construction ensures a robustness that allow your technique to grow unhindered.

If you have an interest in trying nylon string guitar techniques, the Yamaha C40 is a more than wise bet.

Very nice, easy to plat guitar. Lovely sound and build quality for the price bracket

Nice bright sound, wider neck 53mm than my Fender CN60S 43mm. Plays well and good reviews as a 'beginner's guitar' - I'm a beginner, just 1 year in now!

It has a lovely tone, the body has a superb finish and, most importantly, I am able to get my hands around the fret board to play it.

Sounds great, easy to tune and more importantly my daughter loves it.

June S. - 25/11/2020

It's not a top of the range classical but a great staring point (it's what I needed to compliment my existing acoustic).
