Yamaha CG142C Nylon-string Acoustic Guitar at a Glance:
- Solid Cedar top for great sound
- Full-width nut for true classical spacing
- Ideal for Beginners
Solid Cedar top for great sound
Musiekwereld knows that the choice of top wood can make or break the sound of a nylon-string guitar. For the CG142C, Yamaha chose a solid Cedar top. Chosen as much for its look as its tone, solid cedar has a warm sound with excellent projection. And because it’s a solid-wood top, the tone of your Yamaha CG142C will age gracefully, with enhanced harmonics and greater tonal balance as the years go by.
Full-width nut for true classical spacing
The Yamaha CG142C offers a 2″ nut width that allows you to play using true classical techniques. Unlike many guitars in this price range, the CG142C gives you full spacing for executing proper rest strokes and free strokes. This larger width also makes complex fingerings easier on the fretboard.
Ideal for Beginners
From the full size to the great price, the Yamaha CG142C is perfect for beginners. Whether you’re new to classical nylon-string guitars, or have never played a guitar in your life, the CG142C gives you the right balance of playability, durability, and great sound.
