Introducing the Yamaha CS40 classical guitar - 3/4 size
The Yamaha CS40 is one of our most popular classical guitars. Its 3/4 size and 580mm scale length make it the perfect instrument for those who find a full size guitar a little too cumbersome. Although the instrument is more expensive that than similar instruments from Jose Ferrer or Valencia, the quality really does shine through.
Professional and sturdy design
Yamaha have used top quality, sturdy and resilient materials throughout, such as the use of spruce, meranti and rosewood, all high quality tonewoods. The spruce top design means that it creates a fantastic tone which projects well, and the rosewood fretboard provides you with a smooth playing experience.
Ideal for beginners
We have sold numerous examples both domestically but also in large numbers to schools and music services who all report that they last well and sound good.
