I had never bought a guitar off the internet let alone amazon before but after looking at many reviews i decided to take the plunge and order a Yamaha C40 Guitar. It arrived very well packaged, with exitement i unboxed the guitar. People describe this guitar as a budget model but what i held in my hands looked anything but. The guitar is beautfully made with lovely graining on the wood, the tuners look decent quality because guitar stays in tune very well. The sound this beautiful instrument makes is amazing for the price, To say i'm happy with my purchase is an understatement!. I have no problem in recommending the Yamaha C40 to anyone who wants to learn to play the guitar, for the price and the peace of mind knowing this is a Yamaha guitar, it's truly exceptional!.
