Solid Western red cedar top for great sound

Music Experience knows that the choice of top wood can make or break the sound of a nylon-string guitar. For the CG142S, Yamaha chose a solid Western red cedar top. Chosen as much for its look as its tone, solid Western ced cedar has a rich sound with excellent projection. And because it's a solid-wood top, the tone of your Yamaha CG142S will age gracefully, with enhanced harmonics and greater tonal balance as the years go by.

Full-width nut for true classical spacing

The Yamaha CG142S offers a 2" nut width that allows you to play using true classical techniques. Unlike many guitars in this price range, the CG142S gives you full spacing for executing proper rest strokes and free strokes. This larger width also makes complex fingerings easier on the fretboard.

Ideal for Beginners

From the full size to the great price, the Yamaha CG142S is perfect for beginners. Whether you're new to classical nylon-string guitars, or have never played a guitar in your life, the CG142S gives you the right balance of playability, durability, and great sound.

What Yamaha Says...

This entry model offers solid top at affordable price. Improvement in sound and playability is promised even for this reasonable mode.
