    I wanted it for playing while the kids were going to sleep. The big Taylor 12 firing up brings them running back downstairs every time.I had hoped the aux input would let me play along with some of my favorite tunes as well. Once I had tried the steel string model I was hooked on getting it for just that reason. Since I got mine I?ve found that the tone is great pumped through my old amp, either of my PA system or just listening to the Yamaha supplied ear buds? (hint- don?t use a great quality sounding set of headphones since the amp will overdrive them horribly, the ear buds supplied sound GREAT. Your best headphones are just TOO sensitive for this output!) Using the aux input from radio or MP3s is fantastic for just jamming with the tunes or working seriously on licks. The BIG surprise came when I realized that after 30 plus years of noodling on the guitar I?m actually working both on new techniques and getting licks down that had eluded perfection for years. No one can hear my mistakes or get tired of my working a lick over and over till it?s right. I?m practicing a lot more and enjoying it a lot more as well. I haven?t touched the strings with a pick yet, just working with finger techniques, picking, plucking and strumming have kept me interested for the last month? The nylon strings have let me do some marathon several hours long sessions without permanent grooves in my fingers or shattered nails? Even when the whole gang are up and about I tend to grab this instead of my Takimine CS132. All in all I wish I?d have unpocketed the cash and bought it long ago.

    The SLG-100N would be a fantastic guitar if the sound was at least good. It is not. The "sustain" is so long that I can leave the room, get a coffee, and it would still be sounding when I return. I returned mine to Yamaha, they claimed they fixed it, but it still has a much too long sustain. For this reason, I can not recommend this guitar. I wish I could, because I like the concept and construction of this guitar.

    Really like this so far

    By Peter Lucibelli

    from New Haven CT

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

    I am no classical guitar purist as i mostly play original rock. I own many Fender electrics, Jems, Takamine acoustics and have owned and sold a few others. The reason I purchased this was strictly for studio recording. I once owned a beautiful Cassical Takamine but it was a waste in my possesion becuase I only recorded with it and did no live performance with it. This guitar seemed compact and perfect for the textures in my recordings. I just got it and loved it as soon as I picked it up. The action was nice and I hear a lot say it is too high, I did not find that to be true. The neck is real nice and the sound through the ear buds sounds really clean and mostly full toned. The controls to balance trebble and bass are really needed and adds so much when boosted. I really believe this will end up doing what I need in the studio along with some other processing, I do not think people will notice this was not a full bodied guitar. If I were to come up with a con I would say that the pickup favors the high strings as the bass strings are much lower in volume. That too can be adjusted a bit in the studio. Bottom line, for a compact, different looking and feeling instrument, I really love this and cannot put it down. So far so good and I hope to record with this real soon. Who knows? I am already picturing a live performance with this.

    can't say enough

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

    I've had this guitar now for several years. I was going to sell it with a few of my other guitars, but I kept it. It's been a really good practice buddy and I always keep it out, so I can play it. I've never regretted spending the money on it and it is very dependable and well-built. So, if you want something for practice and don't want to disturb your roomate, this is the ticket. I agree with other reviewers, that for performance, you would need exceptional amplification and sound shaping to make this sound anything like the real thing. This buitar would last you a lifetime of fun and pleasure practicing or just playing at home.

    Not good for performance

    By Stringman-ztDdS

    from Riverside, Ca

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

    I have owned this guitar for nine years and it's a favorite of mine. It's the one guitar I own that is out of the case on a stand all the time. This guitar is WONDERFUL for practicing. Great neck, good intonation, and the sound through the headphones is terrific. Late at night, I can practice to my heart's content without bothering anybody, and it's great for travel. However, this is NOT a performance guitar. I have three Gibson Chet Atkins classicals and a Hirade cool tube for comparison. The Yamaha isn't even close, and it seems to be a problem with the classical, not the steel string. On mine, there is a balance problem that I have not been able to fix. Strings 3 and 4 are very low in volume compared to the others. So, if you want a good practice guitar for travel or late night, get one. But don't expect a good sound for performance.

    A Special Classical Guitar

    By Pi Thor Project

    from Michigan

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

    This guitar has been in my collection for about 2 years and I?ll never part with it. Extremely versatile. I practice quietly with headphones on right in the family room while others are watching the tube. How cool is that?!?It has 2 reverb selections available as well as Aux In if you want to play along to an MP3 or drum track.I recorded with this axe going direct into my computer EMU1212 soundcard via an ART Tube preamp to give it some boost. Results were pretty good considering that nylon string is difficult to record with anyway. I also have an Alvarez ?Yari at twice the cost and no electronics, so I?m limited with the traditional classical having a microphone at the sound hole. The SLG100N gave me wings! A tune is posted using this guitar on Pi Thor Jam site called Tina Marie.For playing live, watch out! It?s very good and more professionals are starting to use this instrument due to ease of set-up with PA systems and reverb warmth is at the touch of a switch.It?s portable and silent when you want it to be, recording with decent results is possible, and patched to an amp or PA... you?ll find some satisfaction.Quality is very good on this instrument. I also own a Yamaha 12 string, which is still holding up compared to my warped Martin.This guitar is versatile in many ways and a keeper.

    Great nylon string guitar

    By SirDavidV

    from Maricopa, Az

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

    I saw a classical artist use one of these in a Christmas show last year. Was very impressed by the sound. Was looking for something to replace my Ibanez classical. Found the quality to be outstanding, the action of the neck is very nice and the electronics very good. Havent had any problems with sustain, just adjust the tone controls a bit. I turn the reverb off and use the reverb in the amp, on my footpedal and PA.. a cheap 9 volt battery is lasting me easily over a month. Just unplug it when not using it. This is a quality instrument. i recently used it in some recording and just did a live gig using it wiht a new song i wrote. The comments i got from the audience later were off the chart. It does create a cool visual for your performance. and it does play very nice. This guitar has now been added to my live gig arsenal...and is one of 4 guitars I always use.

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

    Very surprised with this instrument. I gig regularly with my modified acoustic but I'm thinking of selling it now and getting this instead. This is much more compact, lighter and sounds every bit as good. Sound is great, feel is great, just very happy with the whole thing.

    WOW!

    By Bach- star S

    from LUBBOCK, TX

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

    This thing is a gas. Very light, easy to pack and almost completely silent. Plays much like other Yamaha nylon stringed guitars so it will not feel too unfamiliar and the sound is surprisingly natural. Since the body is narrower than a classical guitar, it takes a little adjusting to find the right position - though this should not be seen as a problem. There is not as much latitude in the types of sound you can generate as with the real thing but for the purpose and as a novelty, it would be hard to beat this instrument!

    Really comes in handy

    By Pat Polk

    from Annapolis, MD

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

    The sound is actually really good. Always fits in the overhead compartment, and even in the thin little lockers on Navy ships. It really beats having to carry around a full size case when you travel a lot and are trying to work in some practice. The detachable plastic sides are durable, and the rest won't really get banged up either. (Although the little prongs used to attach the side to the main part come loose and need tightening with an allen wrench sometimes--don't let that trun you off from this guitar though). Good for college dorms when you don't want to wake up your room mates, etc. (though the little bit of sound it does make does bother really light sleepers nearby). The neck feels pretty good too. So if you are always very busy I recommend one of these in addition to your regular guitar so you don't have an excuse not to practice.

    Well worth checking out!

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

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

    Quality made - mine is flawless. Yes, reverb is a bit noisy but I find the two settings very musical. Sounds great through headphones and amp. Fantastic feel and action - very responsive. Yes, the tonal range is limited when compared to a regular classical, and the strings do sustain a bit more than usual but I can easily work around this. It's a gas to play! Although not for the purist classical player, the ability to play while the kids sleep or crank-it-up through an amp is worth every penny. My only gripe is that the upper (detachable) bout could be a bit more rounded on the edges - the way I hold it, it digs in a bit. Buy one - you WON'T be disappointed.
