Considering today’s current state of the guitar market, I’d say there’s never been a better time to pursue a nylon string guitar purchase, or any guitar for that matter. Renowned classics are dropping down in prices in consequence to the ever evolving competition.
The CG192S is the flagship instrument of Yamaha’s renowned CG series – sporting quality, affordability and playability at its finest. A flagship fiddle for just 500$, justifying my point above. The CG192S is an instrument which holds all those high remarks, backed up by a sturdy construction comprised of high quality tone woods, resulting in a fantastic playing experience for the experienced virtuoso, as well as an aspiring beginner.
Body & Neck
The instrument’s full sized body is made up of a solid Engelmann spruce top and rosewood back and sides, with a natural gloss finish. The spruce top has excellent sound projection, the tones coming out through its nylon strings are louder and cleaner in comparison to a cedar top.
The dovetail joint mahogany neck hosts its ebony fingerboard which comes equipped with 18 medium frets and a 2.08 inches wide synthetic bone nut. The instrument comes on a total scale of 25.6 inches.
The guitar features six gold die cast tuning machines atop its headstock, combined with its rosewood bridge system the instrument’s tonal stability is at an admirable level. You will rarely, if ever, have individual string troubles. Staying in tune is a breeze in prolonged performing sessions. Take this git on a live settings and you’ll have no troubles whatsoever.
In addition to offering a more comfortable playing experience due to its light weight nature, the guitar’s thin woods construction enables louder expression through its tones. The instrument’s vibrating sound potential gives off an impression that you are using a luxuriously expensive handmade guitar. The mahogany neck makes a noticeable difference in sound quality as well.
The gitbox is an all-around work of art no matter how you look at it, it clearly showcases the attention to detail put in by the manufacturers. The sound quality is obviously there. The action is at an optimal level, ensuring minimal fret buzz, among everything else. The git can withstand live playing without a flinch and its slim nature is always an added bonus, making it a breeze to carry around and play to your heart’s content.
There’s not a single soul on earth I wouldn’t recommend this instrument to. It’s a generous jewel from top to bottom which can carry you through your entire music career, regardless if you’re starting out or you’re looking to spice up your collection.
