Yamaha CG122MC and Yamaha CG122MS

Yamaha CG122M is the only matte finish model of the CG series. It offers decent sound with affordable price. In general, it is a great entry level classical guitar.

Yamaha CG122MC and Yamaha CG122MS outstand for the matte finish and decent sound at affordable price. The solid cedar or spruce contributes most to the sound quality. The classical 52mm nut width and proper neck profile make it very comfortable to play. The tone and craftsmanship feel like a more expensive guitar. It is a nice instrument to start your classical guitar journey.


  • Solid spruce or cedar top
  • Matte finish


The overall tone is great for the price. The new designed smaller bridge reduces the loss of string vibration and improves the final tone. You can choose the cedar top version Yamaha CG122MC or spruce top version Yamaha CG122MS depending on your personal preference. Both are good for beginners to start with although they are a little different in tone characteristics and open time.


The combination of 52mm nut width and neck profile make Yamaha CG122MC and Yamaha CG122MS very playable guitar.
