Solid European spruce top for great sound
For the CG172SF, Yamaha chose a solid European spruce top. Chosen as much for its look as its tone, solid European spruce has a rich sound with excellent projection. And because it's a solid-wood top, the tone of your Yamaha CG172SF will age gracefully with enhanced harmonics and greater tonal balance as the years go by.
Full-width nut for true classical spacing
The Yamaha CG172SF offers a 2.0625" nut width that allows you to play using true classical and flamenco techniques. Unlike many guitars in this price range, the CG172SF gives you full spacing for executing proper rest strokes and free strokes. This larger width also makes complex fingerings easier on the fretboard.
