Gorgeous solid cedar produces resonant, richly defined tone!
The Yamaha CG111C Cedar Top Classical Guitar delivers balanced tone with exceptional quality, durability and cost performance. The craftsmen at Yamaha specially redesigned the guitars in their CG series with slightly thinner sides and back as well as a thinner finish to deliver better sound response. These guitars also have thinner necks to increase playability, and are slightly lighter in weight, offering greater volume as well as extended comfort.

This guitar is a phenomenal value. First, it's gorgeous, and looks completely different than the poor photo here. The solid cedar top is a nice tea color, back and sides are light brown Nato (mahogany lookalike). Woodwork and finish are flawless, except a few glue marks inside on the braces. The chrome tuners are much better than I hoped for at this price. Plastic nut and saddle needed no mods - it plays great, out of the box - 4.2mm on the bass side, 3.7mm on the treble.The sound is quite lively, and in all seriousness it compared favorably to a couple mid-level Ramirez's in a famous NYC music shop I frequent. You just can't go wrong with these Chinese-made student Yamaha's.
I'm a music major and my school focuses on classical music for their curriculum. For a year, I played a very crappy and very old classical guitar until I saved up the money to buy a new one. I just got the guitar yesterday and the sound is great. It's light-weight and the strings are close to the fretboard. Not that it matters much but the body is beautiful.
Music classes at my school used these and Takamine Jasmine guitars, they probably got them because they were cheap. This guitar sounded and felt much better than the Takamine. if you put a good set of strings on it it would probably sound even better. The only problem is they only marked the fifth and ninth frets on the side of the neck, this can be a problem if your used to electrics or other acoustics
Really awesome guitar. Got it a month back, and sounds real amazing. Best value for money. Smooth.Yamaha rocks.
I wanted a cheap cedar-topped classical guitar. This fit the bill. It plays and sounds great. I'm sure there are better guitars out there, but I like this one.
