MGR/Gandalf's review"Yamaha C40 Classical Acoustic Guitar"

Yamaha C40
I got the guitar from a local dealer of yamaha guitars. I got it because it sounded really nice a kind of mellow yet strong sound to the strings. I paid £70 for the guitar

The sound is very good. I play flamenco on the guitar and it sounds very good. The quality if the guitar is superb and i cannot find any faults with it. The look of the guitar is also very good. You won't want to put it down!

Not much i dont like. Needs a little tuning once in a while thats about it.

The constructuion of the guitar is very good for the price. The guitar is properly varnished/protected. It doesnt feel very cheap either.

This guitar i would recommend to someone just beginning or someone who wants a good guitar just to play around on. It is very good and if you are looking for a nice classical guitar for a cheap price buy this one.

Joe-Rhys's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" a very good guitar to start!"

Yamaha C40
it is made in Indonesia.
the bridge is rosewood, the bottom and sides meranti (a nearby wood of mahogany from the site), the spruce and Nato neck (wood similar to mahogany) rosewood fingerboard 18 frets.

UTILIZATION

I found the handle rather chubby les paul style, it is comfortable and access to treble is good, ergonomics, that of a classical guitar and classical ... more
for her, she's safe!
I could test it milonga in comparison with models from lag much more expensive and there are no pictures, it generates a higher volume and is much more comfortable!

SOUNDS

this is a guitar that is well suited to flamenco, Spanish classical, bossa nova, and what you want ...
I love the sound of this guitar, there is nothing I hate it in terms of sound.

OVERALL OPINION

I bought milonga on a whim in 1 quarter of an hour!
I had plenty of time to realize that far exceeds some guitars more expensive and better off in appearance (I'm talking about lag and compared Elypse played in my decision to purchase).
I have had a classic made by a luthier to € 3,000 each in hand, I tested a classic made in marseille, and others like lag TN100 a TN77, a elypse.
what I love most, the big sound, the playability of the neck, sounds really warm, black color which makes class nuances that can be learned, really attractive price (135 €! !), the fact that it is made in Indonesia and not in china, satin black finish on the back of the handle which makes the game even more enjoyable.
what I like least, finish a little sloppy at the body-neck-joint, a few key strokes on the high E string that tune constantly.
the price / quality ratio is incredible sound was incredible with a look that makes "class" and all my students told me she had a beautiful sound and she was pretty, from this point of view there is no doubt ...

if you do not have a big budget (less than 200 €) for the purchase of a classic and you are in a hurry, going to try this beautiful lady and she will reward you well!

bigup34's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Yamaha C40
Made in China I think

UTILIZATION

Channel Plutt pais, a little sticky when heavy perspiration, but nothing alarming!
Accs for acute obviously difficult, but it is a classic ...

SOUNDS

For the price, this guitar has really good sound, and exceeds most other widely guitars in the same price range. Forget Stagg and company!

OVERALL OPINION

I have been using prs three years and will spend a folk MODEL. She does my first guitar and always will! If you are beginner or have a tight budget you your sr to make the right choice, and fall on a good guitar without any claim to, allowing you to student, and play without false notes; )

Yamaha C40
Everything has been said

UTILIZATION

- The handle is quite nice, though fairly large (it's a classic at the same time), the varnish does not stick.
- Access to acute is difficult, but surprisingly, it's a classic ^ ^
- It is light, easy to play and transport
- Easily obtained a good sound, as we do not do anything ^ ^

SOUNDS

- With I play everything from blues, pop, country and even the maiden and metallica. But know it will sound better if you play the classic ....

OVERALL OPINION

- I use it for 2 ½ months. I bought 30 euros a friend, almost new, to play some acoustic music, electric guitar is already. I wanted to take an acoustic guitar, even low-end, without me taking the lead. With experience, I will choose a western guitar, because I prefer the sound of steel strings. But hey, it's a great guitar if you want to play around a campfire with friends, beer and girls ^ ^.

Yamaha C40
Spruce
Meranti back and wicker covers
Neck Nato
Rosewood

UTILIZATION

Guitar beginners beginners and when one is not careful forcment dtails which will become more important with the exprience and ear s'agurit.
That said, the coating of the handle is enjoyable but a little sticky when you play a long time and we sweat a little.
Lightweight trs enjoyable, but even she seems Maousse strong.

SOUNDS

Picking captures but good to see anything with guitars better bill (but not no joke I hear you say ....)

OVERALL OPINION

I admit I chose a CRITERIA at the top, but .... the price without sacrificing the rest of the guitar CHARACTERISTICS.
Let's say it's a great first purchase for who knows nothing and guitar through the door of a music store in the knowledge that the vendor will try the guitar for him or it without the achter have to try.

Yamaha C40
Top: Spruce
Back & sides: Meranti
Neck: Nato
Fingerboard: Rosewood
Bridge: Rosewood
Scale: 650 mm
Tuners: Chrome
Finish: Natural

UTILIZATION

Channel pleasant, 20 frets
Difficult access to acute (bah, c a classic)
Good ergonomics, weight light, pleasant
The shape, beautiful, pleasant to have in your hands
Sound: very good, not bad for the strumming, flamenco

SOUNDS

Bah, a classic c ...
It's good for rhythm'n'blues, rock, strumming but when the melodies not go very well (well, duh, the nylon rope, normal c ...)
Otherwise I'm very happy, sounds nice.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a year and frankly I love.
I will soon go on an electric, but frankly an excellent guitar c study, fun to play and transport.
Value for money very good.
If I had to buy a classic, with the experience, I would take a électroaccoustique, but this guitar is excellent. I advise all beginners.
