Everyone knows Yamaha, whether they're in the music industry or not. They're the world's biggest manufacturer of instruments, and they didn't get there by mistake: they did it by keeping their build and sound quality to the highest standards. Yamaha released its first guitar in 1942, and ever since then, they've been dedicated to offering a range of instruments broad enough for each and every player to find exactly what he or she is looking for in the lineup of Yamaha guitars. Before you dive into the huge selection, start by thinking about what you want in an instrument. Yamaha makes it all, from electric guitars to acoustics to hybrid models and even a few varieties unique to them. Wondering what could be so unique about an instrument as wildly popular as the guitar? Check out the SLG series of silent guitars for the answer: they're not electric, acoustic, or even acoustic-electric. Instead, they're a special combination of all three, which you can connect to an amplifier to play out loud or to a set of headphones to keep all the sound to yourself while you practice. One of Yamaha's biggest selections has always been beginner instruments, and their guitars are no exception. You'll find all kinds of options here that are accessible for learning musicians, including bundles like the GigMaker Acoustic Guitar Pack. That ensemble includes a gig bag, digital tuner, picks, spare strings, strap and even an instructional DVD, so you'll have everything you need to start playing the guitar even if you've never picked one up before. If you're an experienced guitarist looking for a truly top-of-the-line axe to power your biggest gigs, you can't miss the Yamaha PAC1611MS Mike Stern Signature Electric Guitar. It's designed to Mike's exacting specifications, delivering outstanding response with amazing vintage character. This is a versatile guitar than can help you really strut your stuff whether you're a classic rocker, technical expert or hard shredder. These are only a few examples of the choices available in Yamaha guitars, so go ahead and explore the catalog yourself to see all the instruments in the lineup. With this amount of variety, the one thing that's certain is that you'll find the guitar which screams "play me!" soon enough.
