Summary: This is my Second Yamaha electric nylon, I loved the sound but the finish I felt was detracting to the appearance of the guitar. I made up my mind not to buy another until I was impressed with the finish. Several years later while shopping for a new nylon string I saw my new axe and said WOW!! And to top it off I paid less for my new axe than the first one!
Summary: I've been taking lessons in classical guitar (Yamaha C40)for about a year and am just starting to play with our church band. I wanted a classical type guitar that I could also plug in and strap on in church, and man I found it! Unplugged, it's got great tone. I still have to find the right set up with my amp, I just haven't had time to experiment. My teacher liked it when I first brought it to my lesson, so this is now my main guitar. It's just so comfortable to play.
Summary: I use this guitar for musical theatre pits, church, and fusion nylon sounds with a Flamenco/Spanish flair. I use D'Addario Pro Arte Hard Tension strings. Plugged in, my amp is a Fishman Loudbox Performer. The neck has a very comfortable shape which is great for soloing, or for long gigs where a more traditional classical neck might strain the left hand.
Pros: Fun To Play, Good Feel, Good Pick Up, Solid Electronics
Summary: It sounded great, but not worth the money! The unpluged sound was very thin, due to the thinner body style I guess. It did do the job when pushed through a PA, and sounded like a nylon string should. I may have just had a bad apple, but mine would not stay in tune, and past the 12th fret... lol way off!! I was more impressed with Music123 customer service than the guitar!!!
