Affordable Playability From Yamaha

The GCX122MSC acoustic-electric nylon-string guitar is an expansion of the already popular GC classical guitar series. Yamaha has combined quality tonewoods with an onboard preamp that offers versatile tone control and professional amplification. You'll get a natural, resonant tone from the Engelmann spruce top, and the rosewood fingerboard and bridge provide you with accurate and smooth response. And, with the new System 61 preamp and precision tuner, the GCX122MSC will keep you in tune and sounding great if you're playing live. Whether you're a student or a pro, you'll love the Yamaha GCX122MSC.

Yamaha GCX122MSC Acoustic-electric Classical Guitar at a Glance:
  • Great sounding spruce top
  • System 61 preamp offers versatile tone control
  • Great for learning classical guitar
Great sounding spruce top

Sweetwater knows that the choice of top wood can make or break the sound of a nylon-string guitar. For the GCX122MSC, Yamaha chose a solid Engelmann spruce top. Chosen as much for its look as its tone, spruce has a rich sound with excellent projection. And because it's a solid-wood top, the tone of your Yamaha GCX122MSC will age gracefully with enhanced harmonics and greater tonal balance as the years go by.

System 61 preamp offers versatile tone control

A natural tonal reproduction in a classical guitar preamp is important, and the System 61 preamp delivers. The Yamaha contact pickup and precision tuner keep you sounding your best. With such tonal clarity and advanced amplification, the Yamaha GCX122MSC is an ideal classical guitar for live performance.

Great for learning classical guitar

The wide nut of the classical guitar is essential for proper classical technique. The wider string spacing found on the GCX122MSC is ideal for learning rest stroke, free stroke, or rasgueados. If you're considering entering the world of classical guitar, the Yamaha GCX122MSC is an ideal instrument to start with. And if you're a seasoned player, you'll love the low action and playability.

Yamaha GCX122MSC Acoustic-electric Classical Guitar Features:
  • Amazingly comfortable 12th-fret cutaway body design
  • Ready to gig, with onboard electronics and built-in tuners
  • Tone will become harmonically richer as it ages, thanks to the solid spruce top
  • Neck carve gives you traditional classical guitar playability
  • Fine-tune your plugged-in tone with the 3-band EQ
Affordable quality with the Yamaha GCX122MSC nylon string classical guitar!
