Guitar Strings

by Angelyn
(Singapore)

Is it okay if I put half nylon half steel strings on my guitar YAMAHA C-40?


Hi Angelyn,

I definitely would NOT do that. Steel strings are highly inappropriate for a classical guitar and it could result in the heel of your guitar (where the neck joins the fretboard) breaking away. Best to use the recommendations of the manufacturer for sure.

Hope this helps,
Trevor M.
