The SLG200N TBS arrived safely from Zorro Sounds, even though it was shipped in the stock guitar box, not double boxed, and had no packing other than the little piece of hard foam that Yamaha puts in there. The box had some dents and creases and I was skeptical, not only about the instrument, but half expecting shipping damage, a kink, defect, or something. All is well. In fact, I am quite impressed with the guitar, but not with the cavalier approach to shipping it.
The SLG200N TBS is lightweight, 4.3 pounds (my old classical guitar is 3.5 pounds), and comfortable to hold; first fret not too far away for my small frame and small fingers. The action out of the box is a bit higher than my old guitar, but my old guitar is probably too low; fingerboard width is about the same - 50mm, and it's flat, probably the only shortcoming to playability for those used to a non-classical, but I knew that going in, and it's fine, since my old guitar is flat.

I am very glad I went with this guitar. The feel is great and the string dimensions almost exactly match my primary nylon guitar which is a custom Juan Miguel Carmona flamenco/classical (mixta) guitar I got in Granada, Spain. Scale length is slightly shorter in the SLG (650 mm) compared to the mixta (654 mm) and the nut width of the SLG (50 mm) is off by only a mm compared to my...
