Incredible design, great value

By Mychael Pierce

from Red BLuff ,Ca.

Comments about Yamaha SLG100N Silent Nylon-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This guitar is the slickest thing since sliced bread. The over all quality is excellent, typical Japanese. I own a Hirade H-15, Gibson CE Studio and Hirade E-9. those three guitars are valued at over 10 grand, and this Yamaha for $500.00 is just a notch behind them in overall quality and playability. I have a set of Bose headphones that really make it sound great. When played silently it has just enough volume but not too much. Very light & comfortable and can be taken almost anywhere. The gig bag is of very good quality, but don't ever check this thing in at an airport or bus station, etc. Take it as a carry on. the gig bag isn't protective enough for those conditions! You can't go wrong with this axe, I even take it to work and play it when the boss is in his office. I would give it a 10 if I could.

A great guitar for the price!

Comments about Yamaha SLG100N Silent Nylon-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I don't own one yet but had the opportunity recently to play one of these guitars at a music store in Bradford. First thing that struck me about this guitar is how ultra stylish it looks and modern. The next thing was just how well it imitates a 'Spanish/Classical guitar'. This guitar has so many possible applications, from Classical, Latin to Jazz and so on. If like me you really dig the feel of nylon strings you will love the sound of this instrument. Here is my con's about the guitar, the detachable frame digs into your breastbone and is very uncomftable. This make me feel the guy who thought up this guitar was likely not a classical guitarist, however if you play this guitar with a strap it takes the frame out of the breast bone. Having said this i'm still going to buy this guitar and see if i can modify this small problem, i think another reviewer suggested wrapping cloth around the offending bit of frame. The detachable frame design, Yamaha could rethink this bit of the instrument IMHO. Regarding the built in reverbs, its likely i will never use them as my amp already has a good reverb but the second one was good, the first one was not so good in that it was to short sounding.

Great practice instrument

By Joe Harvey

from Colorado

Comments about Yamaha SLG100N Silent Nylon-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

It seems to me that this instrument fits it's primary intended purpose quite well. I love the fact that I can haul it around the house and elsewhere and practice without disturbing others. I can pick away while sitting with the family watching Lord of the Rings for the Nth time. I chose this guitar because it is similar to the classical I regularly play: Takamine EA60N. The nut width is the same and the neck radius is very close. The action is a bit too high, but not disturbingly so. I find the reverb settings helpful and enjoyable. I won't use this guitar for recording or performance, but I suspect it would produce acceptable results. If you're looking for a light-weight, portable, quiet instrument to play late or early and avoid interrupting the activities, or sleep of others, this is definitely one to consider. The frame is comfortable. If you're a fingerpicker and used to anchoring your right hand with your little finger, as I am, it feels a little awkward having nothing to press against. But I quickly got used to it. The plastic housing on the back is not a rugged as it might have been, but more than sufficient if the instrument is treated with the care one would give to a quality musical instrument. I'm enjoying this a lot and would recommend it.

excellent instrument - very good value

By Bob Bright

from South Bend, IN

Comments about Yamaha SLG100N Silent Nylon-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

A great improvement over other "travel" classical guitars, but also a good instrument regardless of its "silent" or packable qualities. The fingerboard is fast and very light, with no radius. Requires much less strength and produces less fatigue on the left hand than any acoustic classical guitar I've ever played, including Ramirez, Yamaha, Asturius, Martin, Alverez and Gibson. Unlike the Gibson CEC (Chet Atkins)or the Martin pack guitar, the upper body wing of the Silent Guitar gives good support for the right arm, although wrapping three inches of cloth around the wing where it hits the breast bone improves placement of the right hand greatly. The lower wing places the guitar on the leg very much like an acoustic box guitar. The tuning machines are smooth and of good quality. The sound quality is extremely good, nearly mimicking an acoustic, but with much greater sustain and stronger bass, and with less ability to produce sound color. A perfect match for the Fender Acoustasonic Jr. amp, but sound quality does not fully develop on unbalanced amps. Fun to play and great for gigs such as weddings and social events or on the road, but will not produce the necessary "colors" for serious classical performance. The left hand will not develop or retain necessary strength and endurance for playing concert quality acoustic guitars if the Silent Guitar is used extensively for practice because of the low, light action. The pickup is very sensitive to variation in how the string is played, thus the effects of rest stroke vs. free stroke are exaggerated. In summary, this is a great instrument for the money, a lot of fun to play, and has wonderful sound with good "acoustic" reproduction. Perhaps not the best instrument for practice if an acoustic instrument is also to be played.

Simply Awesome

By MichaelFla

from Miami

Comments about Yamaha SLG100N Silent Nylon-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I lead Worship at a church. This guitar, once plugged into the church system, just blew the place down. I had people coming up after the first night I used it just in awe of it's unusual shape and many, many comments on the full bodied sound. This is the ONE guitar to have. Worth every penny.

Excellent to practice in silence, not perform though.

By EdwardNY

from Brooklyn, NY

Comments about Yamaha SLG100N Silent Nylon-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Has a nice smooth sound but is missing something in a structure. Not that it's uncomfortable, but still feels weird for someone who plays a full bodied guitar. The reverb was kind of damaged on my new guitar - had a lot of humming noise when enabled but sounds cool on a good one - I tried it. Practicing should be fun.

Sounds great plugged in, nice neck and body structure

By Great sounding classical guitar

from Corpus Christi, TX USA

Comments about Yamaha SLG100N Silent Nylon-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Has a great body structure, nice tone (plugged). Nice neck, has removable pieces for your convienience. Has access to 18 frets. Stays in tune pretty well . Able to access headphones to hear yourself and won't make a sound to people around you hence the name "The Silent Guitar". Yamaha did a pretty good job on this guitar.
