Yamaha Acoustic Guitars: 7/8-Size Classical

by Guitar Guru

“A Classy Way to Introduce Your Child to Classical Guitar”

If you are looking for a classy way to introduce the classical guitar to younger and smaller players, then the Yamaha 7/8 size classical guitar is a great choice! Not only do you get a guitar that has been sized down to accommodate those with smaller hands, you also get the Yamaha attention to detail and quality craftsmanship. Plus, the Yamaha certainly looks good!

Even though there are not a lot of bells and whistles on the Yamaha, it still has crisp, clean lines that give it a very professional appearance. It is visually appealing and will bring a smile to your face every time you take it out to play it.

Guitar reviews agree that having a solid top guitar is important for beginning guitarists. While the Yamaha does not boast a solid top, it still holds its tune fairly well. It also has a decent tone, considering its laminate cedar top.

While the Yamaha is outclassed by the Alvarez RT16 Regent Series 7/8 Travel Size Acoustic Guitar, especially when it comes to quality of craftsmanship and tone, the Yamaha has the Alvarez beat with a price tag of just $129 as compared to the $199 of the Alvarez.

Regardless of which guitar you choose, you are still going to want to protect your investment, and this can be done by purchasing a gig bag like the Musician’s Gear Acoustic Guitar Gig bag for just ~$15. Even though the Yamaha 7/8-Size Classical Guitar is not at the top of its line, it is still important to keep it safe from dents and dings and from dust and inclement weather.

Yamaha enjoys a good reputation and it's well deserved. There are many fine instruments made by these people. This is not one of their finest. Save a bit longer and buy something with a solid top...and get a hard-shell case. A beginner is more likely to 'stick with it' if the axe sounds good, and resale/trade-up value is far higher with a solid top. Used laminate top instruments have virtually no value.
