Solid European spruce 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 CG182SF, Yamaha chose a solid Engelmann spruce top. Chosen as much for its look as its tone, solid European spruce has a rich sound with excellent projection. And because it's a solid-wood top, the tone of your Yamaha CG182SF will age gracefully with enhanced harmonics and greater tonal balance as the years go by.

Full-width nut for true classical spacing

The Yamaha CG182SF offers a 2.0625" nut width that allows you to play using true classical and flamenco techniques. Unlike many guitars in this price range, the CG182SF gives you full spacing for executing proper rest strokes and free strokes. This larger width also makes complex fingerings easier on the fretboard.

What Yamaha Says...

The classical guitar is not the only guitar with roots in Spain: another guitar-the flamenco guitar-can also be traced back to Spain. Flamenco guitars are instruments used to spur on flamenco singing and dancing, and look much like a classical guitar. Yet this guitar sounds more lively and sharper than a classical guitar. Its characteristic swift twangs fade away quickly for clear sounding notes. Let's listen to the notes. The back and sides of flamenco guitars are made with lower density wood such as cypress-a member of the cedar family-and the neck itself is relatively thin. In fact, the entire body of the guitar is thinner overall. The strings of a flamenco guitar are also positioned lower than a classical guitar to allow the guitarist to press down on the strings quicker to suit the faster tempo of flamenco music. The height of the strings on the flamenco guitar and the acoustic guitar is almost the same. This means that the strings of a classical guitar are higher than other types of guitars.
