2. Yamaha makes good beginner-level classicals.

My God, it's full of stars!
1. You wont understand how classical guitar works unless you have one.

2.Yea, I'm with dread here. My first classical was a yamaha CG-100. It served me well.

3. Listen to dread. Also, when you come up with specific questions I can give specific answers.

Good luck, it's lots of fun and hard work.
