Yamaha CG 1105A

Post by ef37a »

Classical guitar in charity shop at £110. Retail seems more than twice that but are they any good?

I shall of course check it for splits, a twisted neck and so on but thought it might make a good 'spare' for son?

I think you mean a CG 110 SA.

It's got a solid spruce top, so it should certainly be a reasonable guitar if the neck is OK and the action is workable.

Like most basic guitars, it has a plastic nut and saddle, and an upgrade to bone versions of these could improve the tone.

I just copied what was on the card in the window Wonks.
Might pop in the morrow and check it out.

Their Ss must look rather like 5s, or maybe they misread the label in the guitar. ;)

And don't forget Dave. A bargain is only a bargain if it's something that you might have otherwise bought at a higher price. Is your son actually in need of a 'spare' guitar?

I should print that out and read it many times when the urge to spend hits me!
