Manufacturer's ID: GGC22S

The Yamaha GC22S nylon-string classical stands out in its class with solid rosewood back and sides topped with solid spruce, a gorgeous tonewood combination that also sounds fantastic. Play with expression, and you'll find the GC22S responds to every nuance of your touch.

Top Materials

All models in the GC series feature solid tops and backs that provide the characteristically rich tone of superior materials.

Wood Selections

Wood is “alive” and must be prepared carefully over a long period of time in order to be suitable for use in an acoustic guitar. Even then, no two pieces of wood are the same. It takes a tremendous amount of skill and experience to be able to select the right woods and combinations of woods for an instrument that will bear the Yamaha name.

Neck Shaping

Necks on the Grand Concert series are shaved one by one by a luthier using his sensitive hands to feel the curvature of the neck, making it fit perfectly for smoother finger movement and solid stability.

Bracing Pattern

The bracing pattern, an essential element that defines the guitars tonal character and response, was devised by Antonio de Torres in the 1880s. In the new GC series, Yamaha has improved upon this shape and design delivering greater volume and response, bright and clear high-end, and rich bass.

Saddle Fit & bridge

The saddle captures string vibration transferring it through the bridge and on to the top. The relationship of these three components; saddle, bridge, and top, is extremely important on a guitar. Using their advanced skills, our craftsmen fit the saddle into a groove in the bridge with a high level of surface to surface contact. The bridge is also precisely positioned and glued into on the top with a high level of accuracy.
