A Guitar Tech Opinion

Robert, amazon.com
7 July 2011
  • Summary: Okay I bought this the other day knowing that I may have some issues with it, BUT for the price I wanted to see what I could do with it. I build and repair guitars and know a few things about classical guitars specifically. I've wanted an inexpensive 7/8 size to practice on and use when I give lessons. For the price the guitar is fine right out of the well packaged box.

Big sound for a small guitar

Nick Dickson, amazon.com

  • Summary: If you want a nice looking, easy to handle and fun to play classical guitar then look no further. I have tried out many classical guitars (Washburn and Ibanez) and I find it hard to put this one down. It arrived the next day and with a few turns of the tuning pegs I was happily playing away. Thanks Amazon and thank you Yamaha.

For the price

A. Kroeger, amazon.com
8 March 2011
  • Summary: I bought this knowing it would not be a premium instrument but I wanted a short scale because I am lazy and like easy fingering. So when I got it I found I liked the dimensions and it was pretty playable. I shaved a bit off the bridge to brighten the instrument and adjusted the saddle a bit to lower the string just a little, that helped a lot. I next added some Savarez strings to brighten it further and that really improved it.

A really nice sounding guitar

Dude "MM", amazon.com
7 March 2011
  • Summary: The CS40 is a slightly smaller classical guitar at a 7/8 size. Don't be fooled because it is still a big guitar. Sometimes I think people think that the 3/4 and 7/8 are really dinky guitars...Not true. The nut size of 1-7/8 inches is still a big stretch for your fingers when compared to a thinner acoustic or electric. I would recommend changing the strings right away to a better medium hardness nylon strings. It will give you a much better sound.

Music to her ears

Allen Taylor, amazon.com
17 February 2011
  • Summary: Bought this for my daughter to learn the guitar, and she likes it. The guitar seems solid enough for the price. Small enough for her small frame to comfortably hold it. I guess its this way with all classical guitars but her biggest complaint is the the lack of a strap button. The sound that comes from this guitar is ok for a beginner but I think it lacks quality.
