Yamaha CGS103A Classical Guitar

Classical Guitar

Many children start playing the guitar between the ages of eight and ten. And it was precisely this group that Yamaha was considering when designing the CGS103. With its smaller neck and body dimensions, this instrument lies exactly between a ½ and a full-size guitar and offers perfect comfort when playing, therefore promoting pleasant and productive learning.

Thanks to its spruce top and its bottom and sides made of nato wood - which is similar to mahogany and also often used for significantly more expensive models - the sound of the guitar is balanced and dynamic. The ideal complement to this is embodied by the one-piece, high-quality rosewood fretboard and a solid rosewood bridge.

Gute Basis für den jungen Anfänger
Christian148, 21.04.2016
Für meinen 8-jährigen Sohn habe ich eine gute Anfängergitarre passend zu seiner Körpergröße gesucht. Die Gitarre sollte vor allem eine gute Bespielbarkeit und einen guten Ton bieten und nicht zu teuer sein, falls
Gitarre spielen doch nicht das Richtige sein sollte.

Seit vielen Jahren spiele ich bereits selbst Gitarre und mit Yamaha Akustikgitarren habe ich stets gute Erfahrungen gemacht. Somit viel meine Entscheidung auch diesmal auf eine Yamaha und zwar auf die CGS103.

Insgesamt bin ich sehr zufrieden mit dem Kauf der Gitarre. Der Klang und die Bespielbarkeit ist in Relation zum Preis wirklich sehr gut. Auch mein Sohn freut sich über eine Gitarre, die von Anfang an wirklich spaß macht und ein ernst zu nehmendes Instrument ist.

Nachtrag vom 02.12.2018
Jetzt wird die Gitarre seit 2,5 Jahren gespielt und wir sind noch sehr zufrieden. Die Yamaha ist jetzt gut eingespielt. Mein Sohn spielt die ersten Lieder mit Barregriffen und beherscht die Bluestonleiter. Das hat er alles auf der Yamaha CGS103A gelernt.

Meiner Meinung reicht die Qualität der CGS103A auch für fortgeschrittene Anfänger aus. Es gibt für mich keinen Grund mehr Geld für eine Schülergitarre auszugeben, da stimmt einfach alles.

pas mal
Philippe232, 04.06.2011
J'ai acheté cette guitare pour ma fille de 11 ans qui a des mains assez longues et fines. Je voulais acheter une marque (j'ai déjà une silent guitar yamaha excellente). La prise en main est pas mal mais pas géniale non plus. Je trouve le manche un peu rustique, certaines frettes dépassent (mais pas au moins de faire mal quand même). La qualité de fabrication de la caisse n'est pas non plus géniale car on voit quelques coulures de vernis. Le son correspond a ce que j'anticipais d'une guitare comme celle ci: parfait pour apprendre mais évidemment ce n'est pas une guitare qu'on gardera au delà de 2 ans d'enseignements à mon avis. Pour conclure: parfait pour un débutant dont on n'est pas sûr qu'il continuera mais sinon rapport qualité prix moyen.

Perfecta para un niño
Jesus215, 08.11.2012
Esta guitarra es ideal para niños entre 6 y 10 años, tiene un mástil muy cómodo y les permite poder aproximmarse a los acordes a pesar de las dificultades asociadas a sus pequeños dedos. Mi hijo mayor la uso un par de años, y ahora mi hijo pequeño lleva ya dos años con ella. Además tiene un gran sonido y esta muy bien construida.
