K@vin's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" a very good guitar!"

Yamaha C80
Characteristics have already been said below ... Nice finish on the guitar, much better than other aesthetically finished Yamaha C Series (eg c40)

Note: mechanical finite but very fragile after a few years the white plastic one of them broke. Replacement is simple and inexpensive.

When the varnish is resistant to it and want to POCS in time! Besides having purchased enough color "yellow" now it is orange-yellow with time, even more beautiful!


The handle is quite thick but it is pleasant, it is light.
It will soon be 10 years and I have very little wear on button (after depends on everyone, but with short nails and feeding the key to fast freight is nickel. Addition the action is pretty low.


I play on d'addario high tension, it sounds nickel. After nearly 10 years I have not only sizzle on the horizon! The sound is good, fairly balanced. I started playing the classic top and now I play flamenco guitar with. Tensions allow the strings to give it a good sound level for this style.
In short, it is a versatile scratch! Very good sound for a guitar in this range.


How long have you been using? Did you try many other models before buying it?
For nearly 10 years, I played on a sanchez 3/4 front.

Likes: its versatility, durability over time, finish and sound.

I do not like: Not much, the handle may be a little big but I look for the details ...

Looking back to when I have bought it was a good choice. The value for money is very correct. Now I would direct more towards guitar luthiers such, but considering the price, I continued for a long time and will continue to play on my little C-80!

I do not know the place of manufacture in Asia given the price.
Channel 19 boxes Nato
Nato back and sides
Chevallet button and rosewood
natural color with a gloss
Mechanical gold
Mechanical plastic buttons which shows that it is a low-end guitar


Channel classic so wide and thick
for the same reason access after dousiéme difficult case
the sound is OK but I spent a council of "Savarez" and the sound will become more interesting


It is suitable for any style.


I use it for a year.
what is significant is that price but I am considering a change in the guitar, because I have tried most comfortable ever since. it is a choice I would advise a beginner
very good value for money
And without hesitation I would do this choice

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

Nothing to add. This is a classic entry + from Yamaha. The solid and well designed and built for the price.

Those who are not used, however, may be hampered by the action a little high in the upper sleeve (so to the high) and lack of pellet mark it beyond the fifth box (you can toujorus stick labels :-)).
Set the action of a classic requires change or file the bridge. Let a pro (the one you sold it).


I chose according to some simple criteria. First the price (200 euros max). Then a good balance between a pleasant sound and a handle for use by small hands of my girlfriend used to her Takamine (she starts bossa therefore wanted a rope nylon).
I tried a few models and I had held that the Cort AC 15 (but the sound was somewhat muffled, less accurate) and this one.

In my criteria is what I found most of Pigalle.


I made the classic long ago. Study with a guitar that was not equal to it (generally the entry-level Asian now fully explode those 80 years ... I've noticed that in Cort and Ibanez).
For the pure classical (ah Fernando Sor studies), it is correct. At the same time I did not nail, and I believe that the flaws that I could come see me any more than it :-)
For rythmiqes bossa, ibid. It is not pure magic but it's more than adequate for the price.
By strumming the plectrum (yes .. what we re not) ... it has a very good sound projection. I checked the solo mediator (jazzy kind) ... the volume is very nice (it's rare on a traditional entry-level).
Hence it is evident that it's a rather warm and pleasant for the price range.
What I would say that it has a great balance of sound that does not denature style. Now it is a guitar master key to a budget. A beginner can afford it will not regret it.


Most: comfort (except the action for those who are high gene), the frequency balance, the overall finish (except for mechanical buttons plastoc but it ...)
Cons: Even I do not know what the strings are by default but it is shit. A change you can (the seller was aware that tellemnt gave me the game).

Quality / price ratio excellent.
There are many studies on guitars correct to 60 euros or less, but for a beginner who wants to keep its traditional first few years, it is ideal. In the context: the first classic comfort + price + + sound balance, I put 8.

In terms of other features help or advice PERSONAL INTERESTS site itself.


The handle is quite nice, very good grip, a little bigger than the sound ^ ^
It a convenient form that does not mind, light enough ...
In short I did not know I'm pretty acoustic electric but I made my debut on the world like all the classics ^ ^ But I find vrément practice!


For my style of music is not too much because I ca day of metal!
But honestly it sounds great! It is a pleasure to chain agreements on this guitar! parts to play "soft" say I swear the only one! Sound very harmonious resort is if you envelopes with its melody (well the one we played ^ ^) very good sound for its price!


It's been two years since I use it and I play guitar and I apreciated as always! I strongly advice to young and intermediate guitarists with respect to the more experienced better sound but it needed vrément a very good value for money!
