This widely-popular model is perfect for classical and popular musicians alike. Characterized by bright sound and superb response, the GC12C features a solid mahogany back and sides and solid American cedar top, offering warm sound and playability in one elegant package.

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.

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 on top with unparalleled accuracy.
