I've owned three different travel guitars and this is the closest to a 'real' guitar. That said, for the cost it should be better out of the box than it is. First, I had to have the nut and bridge 'fixed' so that it tuned easily. Second, the piezo transducer distorts; I guess I'll have to replace it with a higher quality transducer. Third, the fingerboard width at the nut is uncomfortably narrow. Fourth, you'd think that for the money they could at least figure out an actual compensated bridge instead of the easy-to-produce angled bridge.

Good travel guitar, with some flaws

By John-qJ-Tx

from Orlando, FL

I bought the SLG100S to use while traveling overseas. First, the good: the guitar is surprisingly ergonomic and easy to hold. The installed L.R. Baggs transducer is responsive and fairly noise-free. And for a near-full scale guitar, it packs compact enough for convenient travel in the included bag. In short, it does its job as a travel guitar. The bad: it might be quibbling, but in light of the fact that import guitars have gotten cheaper and better in the last decade, I was disappointed in the build quality and electronics design of the SLG100S for the price. Some of the fret ends were rough. The saddle is made of plastic and isn't compensated. The battery cover and connectors are flimsy, as well as the AC adapter and connector. It feels as though Yamaha cut too many corners on a guitar that should be priced much lower than it sells for. What you are paying for is the novelty factor, since there are few alternatives for a (nearly) full scale travel guitar. I would recommend playing one before buying to decide whether it's worth the price to you.

Nice travel guitar because it's very compact. Very good neck and good clean sound (without using the reverb) through either headphones or an amp. My only complaint is that the reverb is noisy. It contains a mid-range hum that is not acceptable. Other than that, a good travel instrument to keep up your playing without carrying a full-size guitar.

Great Guitar, Fun to Play

By Mike Beard-37ius

from Singapore

See all my reviews

I bought this guitar about 3 years ago, and have taken it all over the world with me. I knocked it over in my apartment in Tokyo and had the nut replaced with a nice, hand-carved bone nut by a Japanese luthier. I believe it plays louder now. It stays tuned for an extended period of time, and the neck is solid. I've lived in the jungle climate of Singaore and kept it stored in a cabinet of my camper-van. No changes in action height. I'll grant that Yamaha might have cut some corners with the electronics but nothing yet has failed, so that would seem like an empty complaint. It looks great with the maple body and I would buy it again.

It's Been To...

By Tred

from Kansas City area, KS

See all my reviews

I received this as a gift alomst 3 years from my girlfriend & my best friend. I worked as a mechanic for an major contract airline out in Seattle, WA, and often took it with me no matter where they would send me. It packed up nicely & out of the way while I traveled. What really impressed me was the sound! Whether through the headphones, or through my Roland VGA-7 amp. It's crisp, clean sound always comes through no matter where I ended up. And if I am at home, in a hotel, a friend's house, or flying in the back of a plane, it always handy. I still play it almost every day. What a great, sturdy little noise maker!Tred

Amazing quality and tone! Lightweight

By Luke-fJlTP

You can plug it into a normal amp! It's killer with distortion. I HIGHLY recommend this uhh... half-guitar. Only bad thing is you need an amp.

Fine little guitar

By Uncle Wally

from Central Florida

See all my reviews

I bought this model before going on an extended trip in a small travel trailer. Space was a problem so I was attracted to it because of it's small size when packed. But I have been very impressed with the quality and sound. I play at home a lot with the headphones so I don't disturb my wife. It really is a very fine little guitar.

Road Warrior Practice Axe

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I travel for business by air 4-6 days per week for months at a time. This guitar is not my Lowden or my Paul Reed Smith or my 1936 Resonator. But, it is a hoot on the road. I am completely won over by its design, ability to be carried right onto the plane, fast check through security, performance and price point.It mini-ear phones are excellent. My noise canceling BOSE headphones are even better. I use extra bubble wrap for packing it since its soft gig bag could (should) provide more protection. The CD player and the guitar combo are just OK. The volume on the guitar and CD go up and down together. There should be some sort of balance feature... Maybe there is and I haven't figured it out.

Puts Other Travel Guitars to Shame

By smackdown

from Texas

Yamaha should consider changing the name of this to the Silent String [Travel] Guitar.I bought this thing about a year ago and it has made countless trips with me on commercial airlines, and still looks and plays like it did the first day I took it from its gig bag.The top side of the guitar detaches from the neck and the rest of the "body", and the whole package fits neatly into a specially designed gig bag. The gig bag also holds the AC adapter (which I take out and have NEVER used, the electronics on the guitar run on batteries), and has a large side pocket. I carry spare strings, tuner, strings, a Tascam PocketStudio, and other stuff and have plenty of room to spare.The guitar itself feels like a quality instrument, and although you can see through the thing, it feels as though it has a lot more substance than a Back-Packer. It feels like a guitar; a nice guitar.It has a slightly shorter scale, and I mean slightly, than my Hummingbird. It feels full size, yet compact.My only suggestion to someone buying the guitar is to be very careful when assembling or disassembling the body to stick the guitar in its case. It is very easy to do, but if you get in a hurry, or get careless, it's very easy to scratch the guitar when taking it apart. If you pay attention, and do it correctly, it works perfectly, but if you are careless, you will scratch it with the pins that lock the body section into the neck assembly.If you are looking for a travel guitar, save your time, and buy this one. I LOVE it.
