    Comments about Yamaha GC42 Handcrafted Classical Guitar:

    I see no reviews for this instrument yet. That's a shame since this is an outstanding classical guitar. I got the cedar top version and am thinking about getting the Spruce top version also.
    The workmanship is second to none. Absolutely flawless!!!!
    So how does it play, like a classical guitar should. The Cedar top gives this instrument a mellower sound than the Spruce top will. Somewhat warmer. Guess it comes down to personal preference on this issue. I really like the tone of this guitar. At this time I am using Savarez 520 b strings and they work very well for most playing. The guitar has very good balance between strings. Not bottom or top heavy. Volume and projection are very good. Like a good instrument should it will make you aware of your capabilities. This is a great instrument for the price. Great value as it is a professional grade guitar in every respect.
