Beginners and seasoned players will appreciate this elegant spruce-topped guitar.

From Yamaha comes a beautiful classical acoustic that's built with strength and design that both beginners and seasoned players can appreciate, and is offered at a price that anybody can afford. The Yamaha CG162S classical guitar produces a soft sound ideal for finger-picking, or intimate chord progressions, thanks to its nylon strings and superior woods.

The full-size classical guitar features strong mid-range and lower-mids, with emphasis on balanced tone. The end result is a Yamaha guitar with lots of smooth, classical appeal, for a great price. The solid Englemann spruce top produces clear balanced tone, with plenty of volume.

The Yamaha CG162S's ovangkol back and sides add a lively sparkle to the tone and is responsive to your playing style. The nato neck complements these qualities and adds clarity and dynamics to a Yamaha guitar with lots of dimension. Adjust your attack and sustain for each note, and the classical guitar responds accordingly.

Other features of the Yamaha CG162S guitar include rosewood bridge and fretboard, white pearloid peg tuners, and gold hardware for a sleek-looking classical guitar. Built to the precise specifications of Yamaha's master craftsmen, this gorgeous nylon-string guitar will continue to sound as good as the day you bought it. Make that day today and order now. Case sold separately.

Needs work

Comments about Yamaha CG162S Spruce Top Classical Guitar:

I bought one of the "open box" guitars. Have not played it yet as the action at the 12th fret is about 3/8". The top is bowed so that no amount of material removal of the bridge will compensate. Am working on getting the top as flat as I can before attacking the bridge. I have hopes that I can get it into playable condition. Even a "student quality" guitar should be playable, or how would a student know they would want to progress?

Comments about Yamaha CG162S Spruce Top Classical Guitar:

I bought the cedar top version at first but it was damaged in transit so I returned it and decided to go with the spruce version. I was a little concerned about the action being to high because I had purchased the cg192c and the action was totally unacceptable. However, I was able to sand down the saddle with enough remaining to get the action I wanted, I've owned more expensive Yamahas {cg 180 and 201s}, and I actually prefer the tone of the cg162s because of its lighter build; it has more clarity and better balance. Also, I think a lot of the so called "defects" are really accidents that happened in transit or are a result of poor storage conditions , especially warpage. I wouldn't buy an open box classical. I should also mention that the top has an amazingly tight grain all the way out to the edges. The ovankol back and sides look very much like rosewood,
