Cedar top, rosewood body, and ebony fretboard, all on a moderately priced yamaha classical.

From Yamaha comes a beautiful classical acoustic guitar that's built with strength and design that both beginners and seasoned players can appreciate, and is offered at a great price. The Yamaha CG192C guitar is their top of the line flagship model that offers the highest satisfaction in sound quality and cosmetics.

The classical guitar body produces a soft sound ideal for fingerpicking, 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 guitar with lots of smooth, classical appeal, for a great price.

The solid cedar top produces clear balanced tone, with a soft voice. The Yamaha guitar's rosewood back and sides add bold sound, and thick projection with lots of responsiveness. The mahogany neck of the Yamaha guitar complements these qualities and adds clarity and dynamics to a guitar with lots of dimension. Adjust your attack and sustain for each note, and the classical guitar responds accordingly.

Other features of the Yamaha CG192C guitar include rosewood bridge, beautiful ebony fretboard, white mother-of-pearl peg tuners, and chrome hardware for a sleek-looking classical nylon-string guitar. Built to the precise specifications of Yamaha's master craftsmen, this classical guitar will continue to sound as good as the day you bought it. Make that day today and order now. Case sold separately.

Comments about Yamaha CG192C Cedar Top Classical Guitar:

I've owned several yamaha classicals in the past and would have to say the best thing about them was their playability due to their well set up actions. Their only drawback was the somewhat heavy construction- even on their $500 model- which restricted resonance.

In response to this issue Yamaha's new cg192 is built with thinner woods resulting in a lighter, more resonant instrument. I owned a previous $500 version of this cedar topped guitar and the difference in sound is notable, especially in the bass where the new model is much stronger and more focused and more resonant in general.

The problem lies in its playability as a result of a different bridge used on the cg192. The new bridge is thicker and so sits higher along with the saddle so that in order to achieve a moderately low action the saddle would have to be shaved down to the point where it is barely protruding above the slot- which just won't work.

This was not a problem on my previous yamahas which were already set up close to my liking to begin with, so this action problem was the last thing I was worried about when ordering the cg192.
I ended up buying a cordoba c7,another lightly built guitar in the same price range and the action was fine out of the box. It may have a slightly deeper sound than the yamaha but I liked how the yamaha was a bit more focused, so it's a close call in terms of sound. The action turned out to be the deal breaker.

Great Guitar !

Comments about Yamaha CG192C Cedar Top Classical Guitar:

This guitar is fantastic for its price.Really excellent sound. Not a single mark or scratch outside. The top bracing is rough , not finished at each end smoothly , which makes even better sound if its done well. This guitar is loud for cedar & lots of good overtone harmonics!There is a sliver of cedar missing under the soundhole. Looking forward to the sound after sanding as much top braces as i can reach with strings off ! Using 100x, 220, 320.The thinner finish & body woods has made this instrument project, as well as other all solid wood guitars. These CG models have laminated sides & back.

Great sounding guitar for my 10 year old

By Eclipse

from Idaho

Comments about Yamaha CG192C Cedar Top Classical Guitar:

I bought this guitar for my 10 year old son who has been playing for over a year. I has a great sound and nice finish. It seems well built and came with decent strings out of the box. It was a huge improvement on his 3/4 size guitar he was using. It has a good bright and loud sound for a cedar top. I really like the sales department at Musicians friend. I would buy another guitar from them if I needed to.
