This nylon-string classical guitar stands out in its class with a solid rosewood back and sides, solid spruce top and a gorgeous tonewood that exceeds every expectation.

Top materials

All models in the GC series feature solid tops and backs that provide the characteristically rich tone of superior materials. Both spruce and cedar tops are available throughout the lineup letting you choose according to your taste in sound and appearance.

    Wood selections

    Wood is “alive” and must be prepared carefully over a long period of time in order to be suitable for use in an acoustic guitar. Even then, no two pieces of wood are the same. It takes a tremendous amount of skill and experience to be able to select the right woods and combinations of woods for an instrument that will bear the Yamaha name.

        Neck shaping

        Necks on the Grand Concert series are shaved one by one by a luthier using his sensitive hands to feel the curvature of the neck, making it fit perfectly for smoother finger movement and solid stability.

            Bracing pattern

            The bracing pattern, an essential element that defines the guitars tonal character and response, was devised by Antonio de Torres in the 1880s. In the new GC series, Yamaha has improved upon this shape and design delivering greater volume and response, bright and clear high-end, and rich bass.

            * Bracing shape and design vary for each model.

              Saddle fit & bridge

              The saddle captures string vibration transferring it through the bridge and on to the top. The relationship of these three components; saddle, bridge, and top, is extremely important on a guitar. Using their advanced skills, our craftsmen fit the saddle into a groove in the bridge with a high level of surface to surface contact. The bridge is also precisely positioned and glued into on the top with a high level of accuracy.

                Finish

                Shellac is a natural finish made from the resin secreted by the lac bug native to the forests of India and Thailand. Multiple applications of thin layers of shellac allow the top to vibrate freely delivering superior response and resonance. Shellac also allows the wood to breath freely so the longer the guitar is played, the sweeter and deeper its sound grows. In addition to a great deal of skill, applying the shellac also requires a great deal of time and effort.
