Yamaha CJ32

Unread post by MEDVED »

Hello, I am a happy owner of a Yamaha CJ32. I consider it a great guitar even compared to Gibson SJs. Since I own this CJ32 the other guitars stay longer in their cases.
If anyone out there owns one or has owned it in the past I'd love to hear your views.
Even if you have information about these guitars (CJ series) I would love to hear them

Hi MEDVED, welcome to the forums :)

The CJ32 is a guitar I have never played but it is on my list of guitars to look out for. Unfortunately, they don't come up for sale locally very often so I could be waiting a while.

Do share some photos if you have any?

Hi Saul
do you need a host to insert the images?

I was very interested in beautiful American guitars: Gibson, Guild, Martin and Taylor
But when I heard this Yamaha my preconceptions simply crumbled

Great looking guitar.

Must be very special sounding. Exept the spruce top and the ebony fretboard all maple. Solid maple back and sides, and maple neck.

Yamaha also used maple on their FG75 and FG110. Both laminated. They sound very special. Great clear bright tone. What about this CJ32?

I own a Guild F50R, a Guild JF30 and a Gibson SJ100, 1941 reissue. The comparison with these sisters is difficult because they are very different guitars. The Yamaha has been there for less time than the others. But I can't get my hands off her. It is truly special. It has less bass than the Guild F50 Rosewood and perhaps even less than the Mahogany Gibson but has incredible balance and strength in the highs. You can do it all. You can do hard strumming or fingerpicking. She is always there. I think if I had taken it earlier now I would have fewer guitars.
During the time I bought the Gibson SJ100 I tried two J200s. I chose the J100 because I liked it the most. The two J200s didn't sound like this Yamaha. They were drier and with less soustain.
