Great sounding spruce top
Sweetwater knows that the choice of top wood can make or break the sound of a nylon-string guitar. For the CGX102, Yamaha chose a spruce top. Chosen as much for its look as its tone, spruce has a rich sound with excellent projection. And because it's a spruce top, the tone of your Yamaha CGX102 will age gracefully with enhanced harmonics and greater tonal balance as the years go by.
System 68N preamp offers versatile tone control
A natural tonal reproduction in a classical guitar preamp is important, and the System 68N preamp delivers. The Yamaha contact pickup and precision tuner keep you sounding your best. With such tonal clarity and advanced amplification, the Yamaha CGX102 is an ideal classical guitar for live performance.
Great for learning classical guitar
The wide nut of the classical guitar is essential for proper classical technique. The Yamaha CGX102 offers a wider nut not generally found on classical guitars in this price range. The wider string spacing found on the CGX102 is ideal for learning rest stroke, free stroke, or rasgueados. If you're considering entering the world of classical guitar, the Yamaha CGX102 is an ideal instrument to start with.
