Comments about Yamaha SLG130NW Classical Style Silent Guitar:

I would highly recommend this as a 2nd guitar. Nothing replaces a real classical nylon acoustic guitar, but after researching many different alternative travel guitars that cost anywhere from 1/4th the price to double the price of the Yamaha, this model was the clear winner for me in terms of price, looks, sound, quality, and features. Professional guitarists like Brian May can afford anything, but has used the Yamaha Silent Guitar on stage. My son has been playing for over 10 years and recognizes and prefers his classical guitar. But for school performances, a college dorm, camping, air travel, etc, he would much rather take the Yamaha (SLG130NW) with him. And if vanity matters, you will get a ton of attention and envy from others. Wonderful hybrid of a modern electric with the sound and feel more familiar to a classical guitarist. In terms of sound quality, the key factors will be the guitarist, the amp and settings, and the strings, in that order.

Yamaha SLG130NW Silent Guitar

By Herve

Comments about Yamaha SLG130NW Classical Style Silent Guitar:

I purchased a new Yamaha SLG130NW Silent Guitar last week. The guitar is mostly OK in all respects, but is not all all suited to the serious classical guitarist. Yamaha informs that this guitar has a 52mm ebony wide neck, this is correct. However, the strings spacing at the Nut is only 8.2mm, and this is identical to the narrow neck SLG110N. A real classical guitar with a 52mm neck normally has a string spacing ranging from a minimum of 8.6mm to a max of 9mm, and the Yamaha specs for the 130NW fall well outside that. It appears that Yamaha has failed to realise that guitarists play with the string, not the fretboard! If you are a serious classical guitarist and do quite a lot of right hand work on the inner strings, this guitar is not at all suited. In any case, it you do not need a wide neck, the narrow neck version is actually much cheaper and will do exactly the same thing, as the string spacings are 100% identical. Therefore, whether you are a serious classical guitarist or not, there is absolutely no benefit or advantage to buy one of those.
