I have owned this guitar for about four years now. It was my first guitar and I love it. I had the option of going for a dreadnought acoustic, but I chose the Yamaha C40 because of it's smaller size and deeper bass. Keep in mind, this is a Classical guitar, not a dreadnought, so the neck is thicker and harder to play on. In the four years I've had this guitar, I haven't had any tuning problems with it. I am yet to replace anything but the strings on this guitar. One day I installed a LR Baggs iBeam Pickup in it and it sounds awesome amplified. Good luck on choosing.

Comments about Yamaha C40 Gigmaker Classical Acoustic Guitar Pack (Natural):

I purchased this guitar as a gift for my daughter knowing that the other options available were more expensive and no better. As a professional guitarist, I am impressed by three things: playability, sound and appearance. The C40 works for me in all of these categories. If you are looking for a folk or classical guitar and you are on a budget, go for it.

This is a very nice sounding guitar. I have had guitars that were somewhat more costly than this one & they could not compare. This is an excellent value.

    Comments about Yamaha C40 Gigmaker Classical Acoustic Guitar Pack (Natural):

    I gave this guitar as a gift to a senior citizen who was interested in taking up guitar. (He had played violin since childhood.) He said it was the nicest gift he ever remembered receiving. Friends, experienced players, who have played the guitar have been very impressed, and were all the more so after learning the price. The package deal with the gigbag and electronic tuner is s screaming bargain.

    Real Nice

    Comments about Yamaha C40 Gigmaker Classical Acoustic Guitar Pack (Natural):

    Super fine
    When I unpacked it I was sure they sent the wrong guitar, It's beautiful . My wife likes it in the living room on a stand It looks that good. Sounds very good with a warm tone, no frets buzz, Good tuners that seem to keep tune well ( it take a couple of days to stretch the new string ) . By a shark tuner for a few bucks that stays on and put the pitch pipe in the junk drawer, it works just faster the other way. The DVD is very good and with youtube videos it all you need for a good start. I paid a for a stand so thats it. Plays great, looks great ,stay tuned, and didn't cost much and when I looked at the other guitar today I didnt want to trade it in for any of them.

    This guitar has a decent action and the sound quality is better than some guitars for which I've paid twice as much. I'm thoroughly satisfied with it.

    Great entry-level classical guitar

    By DWC

    from Virginia

    Comments about Yamaha C40 Gigmaker Classical Acoustic Guitar Pack (Natural):

    This is a great entry-level guitar. Given that it's a classical guitar, the nylon strings are easier on the fingers for new players (something that more people should consider, IMNSHO). The sound and tone are great for such an inexpensive instrument. The only thing I've ever done is replace the strings with some D'Addario EXP45s. Although I have a higher-end classical now, the C40 will always stay around as my backup.
