A unique way to play guitar wherever and whenever you want to.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Great guitar. Even with a bug.

By kev

Comments about Yamaha Nylon String Silent Guitar:

Great guitar, but it has a firmware bug. When you hit & hold an A on the 4th string 7th fret you may hear a pop or an artifact. It first sounded like I plucked the string again, so it may sound different to you. Doesn't matter what the settings are & it's on the headphone out as well as line out. Yamaha has a fix. It is a new ROM, but they have the whole board in stock. Saw this on 2 guitars. Not sure about the steel string. My serial number is 320320 & not sure what SN range is effected. You can call Yamaha. They have a service bulletin on this exact issue.

Comments about Yamaha Nylon String Silent Guitar:

I tire of getting "Discount Coupons" from the Big Box Guitar Store. Of course they never apply to brand name stuff that we all want. So when Musician's Friend had thirr Labor Day Sale I called to see if SLG200N would be discounted. It was! I've tried several travel guitars I could take on vacation over the years and have never found anything as practical as this Yamaha SLG 200N. I have a beautiful Yairi CY-140 that I have been tempted to put a pickup in but I didn't want to do anything to compromise the instrument. When I read about this silent guitar I started to investigate. I watched a ton of You Tube videos before pulling the trigger. When Musician's Friend offered the Labor Day discount it was a no brainer. It is a beautiful guitar. As I have come to expect from Yamaha the quality is the best. I love playing it through headphones. The onboard electronics offer everything you would ever desire from a nylon string guitar. It is so comfortable to play. I have a Yamaha THR 5 amp I play it through and just was amazed at how great it sounds. The action is a little higher as you play down the fretboard than I prefer but it isn't that big of a deal. I would highly recommend this silent guitar. And a bonus for a guitarist who lives in the High Heat in Phoenix I won't have to be as concerned about keeping it humidified like all my other acoustics. That is Huge! Check one out today. They are wonderful!

Comments about Yamaha Nylon String Silent Guitar:

Great way to practice without disturbing your family or neighbors. Yamaha made a great product. Plug in headphones to practice quietly, or connect to an amp to hear it live. Plug in an mp3 player to add backing tracks or music to play along. Great sound and options.

Very nice and responsive

Comments about Yamaha Nylon String Silent Guitar:

I can now practice in the evening without bothering anyone. I'm still getting used to this guitar. I can't find anything to say negative about it. I had a travel guitar (the neck was too short) and couldn't get as much done with it.
