Yamaha CG142CH Classical Guitar - Solid Western Red Cedar Top 

Yamaha CG142CH: The Spirit of Classical Guitar

The Yamaha CG142CH Classical Guitar is part of the renowned CG Series, created using decades of experience and technology gained from handcrafting fine classical guitars. This series offers a wide variety of models, making it easy to find a guitar that fits your sound and design requirements. With improved volume, tone quality, and response, superior playability, and an elegant, simple design, the CG Series stands out as a top choice for classical guitarists.

Exquisite Tone and Superb Playability

The CG142CH boasts high-quality construction, rich tone, and easy playability. Built to Yamaha's skilled builders' precise specifications, this model features a solid western red cedar top that produces a warm and clear tone characteristic of much more expensive instruments. The rosewood fingerboard provides a smooth playing surface, while the low action ensures easy playability, making it an ideal choice for students and experienced players alike.

Tradition Meets Innovation to Create Inspiration

Yamaha's classical guitars are a blend of traditional craftsmanship and modern technology. Over a half-century ago, Yamaha called upon legendary Spanish master luthiers Eduardo Ferrer and Manuel Hernandez to provide technical instruction for crafting impeccable classical guitars. Building on this firm foundation and enhancing the designs with cutting-edge technology, Yamaha has created some of the world’s finest classical guitars. The CG142CH embodies this spirit, offering players a guitar that inspires creativity and excellence.
