Product information - Yamaha C 40 BL II

Classical guitar for beginners in 4/4 size with spruce top and laminated body made of Locally-Sourced-Tonewood

C 40 Action

For decades, the Yamaha C 40 series has stood as the perfect prerequisite for learning to play the guitar easily and successfully. In addition to excellent quality, the Yamaha C 40 BL II 4/4 concert guitar also impresses with a finish that is perfectly adapted to the player, which is particularly noticeable when gripping. Despite a laminated construction, the instrument produces a powerful sound that is interspersed with warm bass frequencies and unfolds quickly and long-lasting thanks to its lightweight construction. In addition, the Japanese traditional manufacturer also focuses on sustainability and uses only locally available tonewoods for its neck and body materials to prevent unnecessary waste of natural resources and unnecessary transport routes.

Reduced to the essentials

For the body construction, the manufacturer uses a laminated spruce top, which, due to its thin construction and finish, produces powerful treble frequencies that harmonize perfectly with the warm bass frequencies of the Locally-Sourced Tonewood body. A subtle white binding borders the top and body, creating a striking contrast between the individual components.

A simple soundhole rosette adorns the black spruce top, adding a very traditional touch to the otherwise plain instrument and harmonizing perfectly with the dark rosewood bridge

Focus on function and quality

The heart of the Yamaha C 40 BL II is the flat neck made of Locally-Sourced-Tonewood, which guarantees comfortable playability in all 18 frets, especially for beginners, and is very obliging to grip in all positions. A nut width of 52 mm provides sufficient space on the entire rosewood fingerboard so that even extensive fingerings are easy to manage. Clean intonation over the entire scale length of 650 mm is ensured by a bridge inlay and nut made of urea, whose fine workmanship fully speaks for the instrument's high-quality nature. 

Machine heads and stringing

Another quality feature of the classical guitar is the chrome-plated Yamaha RM-1252X tuners, which guarantee precise tuning of the 6 nylon strings and perfectly round off the instrument in its application-oriented manner with their robust construction. Medium gauge strings are factory-wound for additional ease of fingering.
