A fine instrument for students.

The guitar out of box has relatively high action. The real problem is intonation. Perfectly tuned strings sound 20% higher than normal on 12th fret. (20% of a half-tome as measured by my Korg tuner). In addition strings 4, 5 and 6 sound much brighter than 1,2, 3 and don't work well together. Replacing strings didn't help. Going back to the store
I've owned and played this guitar for 5 years and for a low-end Yamaha nylon string it's wonderful. I purchased it for training in classical guitar of which I took two years private lessons and this guitar never faulted. The action and playability was nowhere near my instructors Alvarez, but the tone on this solid top is great. Starting in the classical guitar world? Get this.
I"m a professional guitarist and guitar teacher. I try to keep a few used Yamaha solid
top guitars in stock for student instruments. I'm very picky that the angle of the neck must
be perfect, room on the saddle, low action without any buzzes, no rattles, no imperfections.
I was amazed when I opened the latest CG 111s I found. It will be hard to sell, it compares with guitars
worth 10 times the money.
Maybe mine was a freak, but it's sure wonderful.

I don't know how Yamaha does it but they can make an incredibly good sounding guitar that work perfectly and holds up to anything for very little money. This has been an exceptional guitar to learn on for several years.
