Overview

Inspired by traditional classical guitar design, the SLG200N features a slim neck, thin body, and low action that lets players adopt a more aggressive style, allowing even those players who wouldn't normally choose to perform with a classical guitar to play it with ease.

Sound by SRT Powered
SRT Powered is a new system designed to recreate the body resonance of an acoustic guitar in a bodiless guitar. Yamaha developed SRT Powered, collaborating with recording artists to create a system tailored to the unique properties of the SLG body and modelled after the tones of a high-end Yamaha acoustic guitar captured using a carefully selected microphone in a professional recording studio environment. By actually reproducing the sound of an acoustic guitar—right down to its natural sustain and decay—Yamaha lets guitarists experience the genuine body resonance, body tone and ambience of an acoustic guitar. 

SRT Powered sound can even be mixed with the sound from the instrument's piezo pickups, allowing guitarists to be even more flexible in their creative endeavors. Because the SLG can virtually reproduce the sound of a guitar recorded with a microphone, players are free from complicated procedures involved in mic-ing up a guitar when recording at home or in other settings.

Portability
The detachable top section of SLG’s frame means that practicality and portability are way beyond that of a conventional guitar. The luxury gig bag provided can be carried with ease and fits into an aircraft overhead compartment with room to spare.

Playability
The slim body of the SLG gives these instruments superb playability, and allows players to switch to playing an electric guitar without any discomfort should the need arise.

Design
With the SLG, Yamaha set out to bring a modern feel to the classic contours of a conventional guitar. The distinctive design that emerged is the result of a collaborative effort between the project team and the Yamaha Design Laboratory, and combines traditional guitar lines with an innovative form unlike that of any guitar before it.

Quietness
The bodiless design of the SLG offers a natural, quiet sound that allows guitarists to play without disturbing others, whether practicing late at night or playing in the living room when family members are home. The SLG200N is ninety-percent quieter than a conventional classical guitar.

Durability, Stability
Yamaha’s SLG features excellent durability owing to its solid body structure, so users do not have to worry about damaging the instrument when playing live or traveling. Both the steel string and nylon string models are fitted with a dual-action truss rod, allowing both convex and concave bow to be adjusted.

Functionality
Connect to an external music player to enjoy music playback, enhance your playing with a range of authentic effects, or plug-in headphones to enjoy playing in privacy—the SLG offers a variety of functions that make playing even more enjoyable. What's more, SLG comes with a built-in precision chromatic tuner, compatibility with both battery-and AC power, and a range of other user-friendly features.

    Comments about Yamaha Nylon String Silent Guitar:

    I was familiar with the pervious versions and was somewhat skeptical. Then recently I became interested after looking at a Godin Grand Concert Ambiance. I stumbled upon the SLG200N and after checking out many reviews and Youtube vids, I pulled the trigger. See the video for an early trial run I made.

    Although classically trained in Spanish and Classical guitar, I arrange and play meditative instrumentals and arrangements for my yoga, meditation and mindfulness teaching. My wife and I travel a lot and play various large and small yoga venues... during my review period we have taken it on a 9 day tour and it has exceeded my expectations. It compliments my other Spanish guitars and Sitar.

    I can not recommend it enough. My only small detail is that I wish the tuner allowed for A423 Hz as I use that sometime but I can hang a Snark on and get there... so its a minor detail.

    Pros

    • Silent, great fretboard, aux. input

    Cons

    • Fretboard action was a little high

    Best Uses

    • Hotel rooms, traveling

    Comments about Yamaha Nylon String Silent Guitar:

    I'm taking a road trip across county this summer. Yamaha Silent guitar is perfect. On a weekend get away, my wife watched a movie in the hotel, while I practiced with noise canceling headphones and the Yamaha Silent guitar. She could hear it.
    The auxiliary input is perfect to hook a metronome to. Additionally, I also linked to my iPod and some back tracks. Great product. Four stars, because the fretboard was a little high. My local luthier adjusted the bridge for $15.00. Works great highly recommend

    I've been playing classical guitar for 40 years, and have played everything from Ramirez to vintage Martin. This plays beautifully, it's construction is sweet, it sounds like a Ramirez in a ancient mission. Love it!
