4-0 out of 5 stars Good Start
When I first took guitar lessons a long time ago, the school used Yamaha C-40's. Although I know own guitars that are more expensive, I have a fond appreciation for the C-40.

It is what it is, and what it is is a very good solution for those who do not want to spend a lot of money but yet venture into the classical guitar. I think it is somewhat futile to acid test this guitar much further than that. Sure, it is rather light in construction, but it's affordability and playability compensate for that.

If you're starting, this is a nice guitar to start with.

1-0 out of 5 stars How to buy classical guitar.
If you read this it means you in the same point where I had been some time ago and I hope my advise will help you as much as the same advise had helped to me.
Essentially it is pointless to discuss some hypothetic "classical guitar" on the web. In the same way as all we, people, have the same hands, legs and heads but have different nature and voices, the guitars, even of the same model of the same manufacturer may differ wildly.
The Classical guitar has to be made of wood. And wood, even of the same age and tree has much of personality and much of "specifics in sound.
If you consider this guitar you are shopping in the lowest end for cheap instrument. Well do not do it! Because I doubt you will learn it ever.
First of all buy the real Spanish guitar. I mean Spanish made in Span not the "Spanish" made in China or anywhere else. Spanish guitars, even the cheapest made toward sound, not toward look. Do not buy guitar with laminated top, it will sound as a toilet sitting and you never will be able to get decent sound out of it. The quality of sound is very important while playing classical guitar and you produce the sound with your hands. It is crucially important to learn to produce right sound by positioning fingers and nails properly: you will never learn it with cheap, not authentic guitar, because it will sound the same whatever you will try! It is like a car that make only left turn. Then you will try to play the real guitar not the bogus one , you will find youself incapable to make it sound as other players do.
Do not try to choose guitar yourself because you can't produce any reasonable judgment until you will learn how to make it sound properly, you must take someone who actually knows how to play classical guitar. You have to geta decent instrument because you MUST fall in love with the sound of one, otherwise it is pointless: you play guitar because it fascinates you esthetically. I doubt that toilet sitting sound out of shipping box that pretends to produce music will fascinate you!
Once again, Spanish guitar improves with an age but not one with the laminated top. If you in budget, do not trash you money with cheap Chinese garbage but save more instead and by the real thing.

Here we are, these are my recommendations for those who really seek to learn to play classical/Spanish guitar:
1. Do not buy guitar online, buy it in the local Guitar Center for example! Listen to the actual instrument. If you like the sound take it!
2. Do not buy guitar with laminated top, they are guitar only by appearance.
3. Buy Spanish guitar from Spanish manufacturer, they start as low as $250, roughly.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is all you need to know about this guitar . . . . . . .
This is not a guitar that you buy to play led zeplin, Korn or any other american rock music.This is the perfect guitar to get that authentic spanish sound.This is not a guitar to learn on unless you want to learn classical spanish ballads, however I do think it is a good investment for a beginner that only has an electric guitar.

The reason the strings are far appart is for finger plucking and nylon strings need to sit higher than steal strings.When I played this guitar for the first time at my local guitar store, I loved it (and still do!).You can't play rock, but songs like "dust in the wind" (all finger plucking) are great for this guitar.Just like a strat is for rock, a telecaster is for country, a les paul is for lead, hollowbodies are for blues and so on, this guitar is for classical spanish music.If you want a good beginner guitar, get a Ovation knock off or a Dean (Deans are the best for beginners).

I have some very expensive guitars, but I love playing classical music for girls on this one, and they love it.It is my weapon of choice!

Simply put:It's a great guitar for spanish ballads, and soft finger plucking songs, but not much else, because that's not what it was designed for.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but not too good either
I've tried the C40 a number of times, and I've always found it a bit lacking.While the price is very reasonable, I can't really bring myself to recommend the guitar.The sound (both basses and trebles) overall is muted, and it feels a little bit too light and cheap.No fit-and-finish issues, but it sometimes feels a bit like a cardboard box with strings.

Granted, for USD99 (Amazon's price at the time of writing), it's not a bad instrument, and if price is your only concern, then it's hard to criticise issues like weak sound and light/cheap construction.Even if you're a beginner, though, you will notice the difference if you're willing to spend a bit more on your guitar.In addition, while the C40 might be worth the 99 dollars it's being sold for here, you can do a lot better around the C40's list price of USD170.

I bought an Almansa 402 for about USD220 a few years back as a secondary "beater" guitar - while it's not spectacular, it has much more presence, and is much more fun to play, than the C40s I have tried.In my experience, the higher-end Yamaha guitars can be great (I love my GC-7), but they tend to skimp a bit at the lower end.

In the end, though, it's up to you - obviously other reviewers are happy with their C40s, and I don't want to be too much of a wet blanket!

1-0 out of 5 stars Everyone seems to get good instrumen I got horrible sample
It seems to me everyone got exceptional instrument except me.I don't understand what's so great about this guitar.Action is just horrible.I mean, look at 12 fret its 10 millimeters.I don't know much about classical but it is not what I would call great playability.Of course, you can play on this guitar, I do.But it's hard.I suppose, one shouldn't expect much from $100 dollars instrument.But I repeat, it's not great.Now about bass strings.They sound bassy, as I suppose, they must.But the thing is their bassines overpower trebles. Trebles sound unproportionally weak. And yes, yes.I did changed strings on a good ones (D-Adario normal tension something) upon getting this guitar from AmazonI should say though that guitar starts to sound much better now than it was when I just got it.But action on this instrument still kills my fingers.I do finger pushups in order to develop muscle on my phalanges, in order, to play on this guitar somehow.Of course, I could ask professional to fix bridge nut, but why would I do it for such cheap guitar.My verdict-unless you want to develop your fingers, in order, to pull out nail with your bare hands, go for it.I will send it back, and buy myself inexpensive Spanish brand. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars This is not a toy.
I have an Almansa 435 Seniorita, which is a very lovely little classical guitar, so I have some idea what a decent classical guitar should sound like. I got this little one for my son, who is 5, and didnt want to spend much because you know how children can be when it comes to lessons and instruments. I was very surprised at the quality of the sound. It is still in it's breaking in period, so the strings are still stretching, but it sounds really, really, nice. I even played on it myself (you know, just to get it warmed up for my son!) and it truly is not bad. Doesnt sound "tinny" or "toyish". Sounds like a classical guitar. Now I bought a much more expensive one a few years ago for my daughter, who has since given up the guitar, and that was handmade in mexico, solid wood, 3/4 size, and didn't sound nearly as good as this little thing. For this price, you get a solid spruce top, the finish is nice, kind of matted, the tuners are pretty good, and so far the strings aren't too bad. The base strings look like they could be silver-plated. Unfortunately you dont get any product information in the box so who knows where the strings came from and what kind they are (the guitar is romanian), but the main thing is that the guitar sounds so nice that a child will be encouraged to continue, the teacher will be pleased, and the parents will not have to suffer from more than the usual beginning-any-instrument "noises", and perhaps a lot less because it has such a pleasant sound.Now of course it isnt comparable to the almansa or to finer guitars, but for a young child who is serious about wanting to study classical guitar, this is a very fine instrument at an EXCELLENT price. This model is sold on other sites for about 20 dollars more, but why pay that?! If you are looking for a small guitar for your young child, this one is a very good bet. A real, very decent sounding, classical guitar for the price of a toy one! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Okay product for the price.
The guitar has trouble staying tuned and the nut at the top that holds the strings spontaneously broke (probably from the tension on it by the strings and a manufacturing defect).On the other hand Customer Service from West was excellent, they were willing to pay for my return shipping and sending the product back to me.So its is a poor product but a great company.

5-0 out of 5 stars Large sound and great tone
I specifically asked for and got this for Christmas. Don't be deceived by its 3/4 size -- it sounds like a full-size guitar-- large sound and amazing tone. I am thrilled with it. It stays in tune exceptionally well.

It doesn't matter if you are a guitar veteran or a beginner, this guitar will make you smile. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding
I researched guitars all over the internet for about a month before I decided to order the spruce AA50. I'm glad I did. It actually arrived five days earlier than the expected shipping day which was a plus. As far as quality, it's outstanding. It was shipped in very sturdy material and didn't have a scratch on it. Even the first time I played it I was happy because of it's warm loud tone. FYI spruce guitars take about two years of solid playing before the spruce reaches it's full potential (this is because the resin in the spruce needs to be broken down by the sound waves that travel through it). However, this guitar was louder and sweeter sounding then my old spruce classical that is almost two years old. ONE THING! Replace the strings. I reccomend Pro Arte strings by Diadarrio. If you simply use the strings that come on it then the intonation will be off and certain chords will sound funky (the bad funky). Other than that this is a fine intrument at a suitable price. ...
