Yamaha CG142CH Solid Cedar Top Classical Guitar, Natural

$309.99


The CG Series was created using the experience and technology gained from decades of handcrafting fine, classical guitars. A wide variety of models makes it easy to find a guitar that fits your sound and design requirements. The CG Series also offers improved volume, tone quality and response, superior playability with its easy-to-hold neck design, comfortable string height and an elegant, simple design.

Featuring a solid western red cedar top and rosewood fingerboard, the CG142CH produces a warm and clear tone characteristic of much more expensive instruments. Its lower action and easy playability also make it ideal for students.

Exquisite Tone and Superb Playability

CG classical guitars boast high-quality construction, rich tone and easy playability. Each model is built to our skilled builders' precise specifications, and all models, except the CG102 & CGX102, feature solid tops and backs and sides made from hand-selected tonewoods.

Wide Variety of Models

CG Series models feature various body styles, tonewoods and finishes (gloss or matte), and some models include pickup/preamp systems. This makes it easy to find the model that meets your sound and design preferences giving you the freedom to express your own unique identity.

Tradition Meets Innovation to Create Inspiration

Over a half-century ago, Yamaha called upon legendary Spanish master luthiers, Eduardo Ferrer (who studied under Antonio de Torres, the most celebrated Spanish guitar maker of the 19th century) and Manuel Hernandez to provide technical instruction for crafting impeccable classical guitars. Building upon this firm foundation and enhancing the designs to include cutting-edge technology, Yamaha has created many of the world’s finest classical guitars. Embrace that spirit and discover your own inspiration.

Thinner Bridge Plate

CG Series guitars feature a bracing pattern that delivers excellent response and rich resonance. The bridge plate efficiently transfers string vibration to the guitar top.

Top Material

Cedar: Bright, warm, mature tone that changes very little over time with excellent response and relatively thick treble.

3-Ply Laminate Neck

The three-ply laminate neck design improves neck strength while remaining resistant against warping and twisting. This allows for lower string action and offers greater stability against shape changes over time.

The matte finish on the back of the neck is applied with a thick coat, allowing the left hand to move smoothly while also providing a secure grip. The finish is also applied to the bridge for improved resonance.

Saddle Fit

Years of experience and original technologies have brought improvements to our saddle and saddle slot design. Crafting these components with great precision provides a highly accurate fit that improves attack and sustain while reducing string vibration loss transferring rich resonance to the body.
