I've always been impressed with Yamaha's Classical guitars. I've been a guitar teacher for the past 10 or so years, and lots of my students have them. For the money they can't be beat, except maybe by Cordoba. I'd wanted a flamenco but couldn't afford an expensive guitar, so I gave this Yamaha a shot (After a slightly bad experience with a Cordoba 7f) Great guitar! Very well built, solid. Plays well. Good volume and punch. Fairly well balanced (maybe just a bit heavy on the bass side, though this improved when I changed the strings to Savaraez Alliance Reds) I was a little worried because I've always thought satin finishes look cheap, but it's quite a beautiful guitar. I do wish it had a bone saddle / nut, and make sure to budget for a case. But, it's an awesome value.
