This guitar is a very very sweet guitar for the price. The tone is very sweet and lovely. You can beat the price for such a good quality guitar as expected from Yamaha. The only complain I have is that the finish on the guitar is kinda lame, because you can feel some "bumps" from the finish. Its minor but I notice them. But otherwise this is a great buy and wonderful for starters and/or as a carry around guitar.
I've played both the Yamaha C40 and the C45. The C40 is the slightly more expensive and the nicer-looking guitar. These guitars, while not canons, are adequately loud for studio use and notably accurate in tone in all the registers. They are also well-constructed. I have had four teachers examine and play this guitar and all of them were impressed by its quality as a student guitar and by its value (it really floors them when you tell how little you paid for it). It will be more than adequate for your first 2-3 years of classical guitar study. After that, you can invest $2,000 in a low-end concert-grade guitar.I've seen some comments of folks upset by the width of the neck and the height of its action. These comments are obviously coming from players who play acoustic steel-string or electric guitars. Classical guitars ARE supposed to have higher action and necks that are 52mm wide at the nut.
The Good: The Finish and SoundThe Bad: Action is rediculessly high and is not adjustable, paint scratches easily and frets are uncomfortable.
