          Comments about Yamaha CGS Student Classical Guitar:

          This is an excellent, small size guitar. I have the 1/2 size version and I pick it up nearly every day to practice and write new material. It's especially handy in the early hours of the morning when the neighbors are asleep. This is obviously an inexpensive instrument but the tone and play-ability are exceptional. It's ALWAYS fun to play and it ALWAYS inspires me to write just another song or another bridge or another hook for whatever I've been working on. Overall I'd recommend this guitar to any beginner or any veteran. You'll love it.

                      My mother bought this guitar for me when I was 14 years old. I am now 27 and am still using it today. In fact I will be putting the now 10th set of string on this little baby so that I can start teaching my 8year old son And 3 year old daughter to play guitar. I am planning on buying the smaller version for the 3 year old seeing as mine is the full size one. I noticed how everyone complained about all the guitars staying in tune though.... In my experience if you play your guitar more than twice a week the strings will eventually stretch out to there desired position and hold a tune.... Mine has sat for weeks at a time while in high school and never lost a tune.... Until the recent battle with the three year old my strings were on there for 4 years and only had to be tuned the day I installed them and three times after that.... I used to carry my guitar everywhere with me and still would if I didn't have to work all day....

                        I got my son a 3/4 one of these several months ago and just purchased a full size for myself to take lessons with him. Both have been great so far.

                        Comments about Yamaha CGS Student Classical Guitar:

                        This is a great little guitar. This is not a toy but a full-featured classical guitar. I was looking for a smaller scale classical guitar to make playing with arthritis easier in terms of reach and fretboard width. It certainly worked! This has become my favorite guitar. Although the workmanship is not what it used to be (glue obvious, rough edges,etc.), Yamaha still manages to make an inexpensive guitar with wonderful tone and reponsiveness. It is great for travel and regular play.

                          Highly recommended by my kid's guitar teacher. It was definitely a great buy. It sounds great for a beginner guitar. The size is perfect for my 8 year old daughter. I would highly recommend a nylon string guitar like this for a newbie. My daughter tried a guitar with metal strings and it tends to cause some pain on her fingers.

                          Comments about Yamaha CGS Student Classical Guitar:

                          This guitar plays true and great. The tone is full from the bottom to the top. Great bass tone without being boomy. Great full high notes without being thin. The short scale accounts for the light touch needed to fret this instrument. To be picky, the back of the neck has a little rough spot, and a lacquer buildup where the finger board meets the body.
