I have 2 of these guitars now, and have owned a few more of them. I have an extra one for visitors to play along with me, or if I break a string during a gig and need another guitar that's ready to go right now! They both sound the same - great for the price. I would say that the C40 has a feature that is a deal-maker for me. It has a bridge height/structure that allows you to file away some of the plastic saddle (bridge nut) to get the action (string height above fret board) low enough for playing chords right up the neck to the 10th fret! On most other classical guitars I've seen, the bridge is too high to get the strings this close to the fret board. In my opinion, the only thing this guitar needs is a piezo pickup for amplification. I'd gladly pay twice as much ($300 range) to have this feature on this guitar.

My first guitar ,bought it four plus years ago. I changed the strings to high tension Savarez J540 and lowered the action. Since then I bought 3 more expensive guitars ,BUT this one is my favorite.Very easy to play, the sound is not bad for practicing alone,stays in tune for days and I don't have to worry much if I ding it here and there or if it cracks which hasn't happened yet even though it's never in a case. I recommend to everyone to have one of these or to start with one of these.the BEST value for the money !

I own two of these as well as five other guitars and have to say it offers great value in a beginner guitar. It's well built, has good tone and intonation and stays in tune. It doesn't have any fancy features, the binding is painted on and the rosette is a decal but nobody notices that and it plays and sounds great, the money was put into the performance, not the looks, as it should be, particularly at this price range. I've played a lot of guitars and looked at so many more and have to say I don't think you can find a better value in a beginner classical guitar.

We have 24 of these guitars at the junior high school where I teach. These guitars are put to the test on a daily basis. They are very durable and the sound is incredible for the price. I highly recommend this guitar.

I am a Guitar Instructor in Mississauga/Toronto and I recommend the YAMAHA C40 for beginners. The nylon strings are less painful on the fingers. The wide neck makes learning one's first chords easier - strings are not too close to each other. Good value-for-money.

I've played guitar for about 20 years, I bought my C40 about a year or two ago just to have an inexpensive guitar that I could leave on a stand in the living room and sometimes take on trips or to parties. It's a very decent guitar, well made and it gets a good sound. It’s well intonated and it stays in tune. I didn’t buy this guitar expecting too much because of the low price, so liking this guitar as much as I do has been a pleasant surprise. Cheers!

I have this one and changed to better quality strings. It sounds much better and found it easy to play. Although the neck is wider that a Steel stringed guitar. It can be used for many differant types of music. Not just classical songs.

As a guitar instructor, I recommend classical over steel and for the value - this guitar is one of the best.
