Nylon-string Classical Guitar with Solid European Spruce Top, Rosewood Back and Sides, Nato Neck, and Ebony Fingerboard – Natural
The full-size classical body gives lots of bold tones balanced from lows to highs, with a slight emphasis on the mid-range that enhances punch. The result is a classical guitar with plenty of projection to fill a small room with the soft, intimate sound of a nylon-string classical guitar.
Great Wood Combinations
The top features solid European spruce, a wood that emits full, balanced tone recommended for rhythmic chording and fingerpicking. The nato neck, and rosewood back and sides provide the force behind this classical guitar’s tone, bringing out the deep sound of nylon strings. The rosewood bridge and ebony fretboard add crisp sustain and clarity to your chords.
Dressed in a gloss finish, and featuring a mosaic design rosette, gold hardware and white mother-of-pearl peg tuners, the Yamaha CG182S guitar embodies the appearance of the classical guitar, yet is priced for anyone to own. Drawing upon the vast knowledge, know-how and techniques of its master craftsmen, Yamaha developed the Concert series to deliver the best tone and performance from a classical guitar. With slightly thinner back and sides and Yamaha’s trademark thin finish, these classical guitars deliver a better sound response. To increase playability the Yamaha guitar neck was slightly thinned and also, made slightly lighter in weight. The result is a classical guitar with outstanding tone and exceptional quality. It’s built from the ground up for durability and performance.
CG series are created using the experience and technology gained from decades of handcrafting fine classical guitars. The series offers ten models divided into five grades making it easy to find a guitar that fits your sound and design requirements. The CG series offers rich tone with improved volume, tone quality and response, superior playability with its easy to hold neck design and comfortable string height, and elegant appearance with its simple design. Utilizing Rosewood on side/back, Ebony for the fingerboard, CG182S is designed to achieve the classical guitar perfection.
