This is Yamaha's smallest instrument. Its 21 in. scale length and 3-3/4 in. deep body provide a perfect fit for the youngest musicians (ideal for student ages 3 - 7). This petite size is the most difficult to produce properly, and many inexpensive "toy" guitars fill this price range. But don't let them fool you - the CGS102 is a legitimate musical instrument, constructed with the beautiful tonal woods and meticulous details of a full-sized Yamaha guitar.
