Yamaha has a long history of acoustic guitar manufacturing, with one of the largest selections of entry- and intermediate-level options. Choose from dreadnaught and concert-size guitars, with or without a built-in preamp for amplification, in a wide range of colors and tonewoods.

Classical Guitars

Nylon string, also known as classical, guitars range from entry-level models to modern works of art, handcrafted by artisan luthiers. Many beginners find nylon string guitars easier on their fingertips, while half- and three-quarter-size models are good for young players who struggle on a full-size model. Conversely, high-end classic guitars offer a level of tonal clarity and nuance that's unlike any other instrument.

Yamaha's nylon string models are a great introduction to the world of classical guitar. Affordably priced but built to be played and enjoyed for years to come, Yamaha acoustics are a fantastic choice for any musician.

12-String Acoustic Guitars

Looking to open up your sound? A Yamaha acoustic 12-string guitar can make your playing stand out. We carry the Yamaha FG820-12, a 12-string version of the company's classic FG model. This instrument features a Western dreadnaught shape, solid spruce top, mahogany back and sides, nato neck and rosewood fretboard. Thanks to Yamaha's cutting-edge acoustic analysis technology, the FG820-12 has a more pronounced low-to-midrange, delivering a clearer and more balanced sound overall.

Why Should You Buy a Yamaha Acoustic Guitar?

From 12-string to classic models, Yamaha's acoustic lineup has something for everyone. Yamaha instruments offer excellent value at an accessible price point. It's for this reason mixed with next-level quality that Yamaha acoustic guitars have been an industry mainstay since the 1960s. Over the years, the company has continued to innovate, adding new features that refine their most iconic models without losing sight of what made them special in the first place.
