Tradition Meets Innovation to Create Inspiration

Tradition Meets Innovation to Create Inspiration

Over a half-century ago, Yamaha called upon legendary Spanish master luthiers Eduardo Ferrer (who studied under Antonio de Torres, the most celebrated Spanish guitar maker of the 19th century) and Manuel Hernandez, to provide technical instruction for crafting impeccable classical guitars. Building upon this firm foundation, and enhancing the designs with cutting-edge technology, Yamaha has upheld this spirit and tradition, creating many of the world’s finest classical guitars. Embrace that spirit and discover your own inspiration.
