Travel Companion for the Classical Guitarist

The Yamaha SLG200N Silent Nylon-string Guitar solves so many problems for guitarists that it is a must-have in your collection. It's easy to throw over your shoulder when you're traveling, and its minimalist body virtually eliminates the feedback problems that often plague acoustic guitars when you're performing live. Whether practicing at home, on a fly-gig, or recording, you owe it to yourself to find out what the Yamaha SLG200N Silent Guitar can do for you.

Yamaha SLG200N Silent Nylon-string Classical Guitar at a Glance:
  • Travel with ease
  • Play silently with big-guitar tone
  • Great live acoustic sound with none of the feedback
Travel with ease

With the SLG200N, Yamaha has solved a headache traveling guitarists have always had to deal with: finding space for your instrument. Acoustic guitars, because of their bulk, are especially problematic. The SLG200N's slim body breaks down by removing the upper bout to fit in its included compact gig bag. It will easily fit in the overhead compartment on your flight, under the seat in the band van, or anywhere else it needs to.

Play silently with big-guitar tone

Guitarists at Sweetwater have been in situations where we struggle to get a good sound from our instruments because of having to practice quietly, or even silently. We imagine you have, too. But with the SLG200N, just plug in your headphones and you'll hear studio-quality, miked acoustic-guitar tone, courtesy of Yamaha's SRT Powered pickup and preamp system. You can blend that signal with the included under-saddle pickup. You also get great reverbs and chorus to further tailor your tone.

Great live acoustic sound with none of the feedback

Another benefit of the powerful SRT Powered pickup system in the SLG200N is what it brings to your live performances. By using the onboard effects and SRT Powered system, you'll send the same miked-up guitar sound to your audience that you hear when practicing. Without a large acoustic body resonating from loud stage volume, feedback is a nonissue. You can move freely around the stage with full confidence that your audience is hearing exactly what you hear.

Yamaha SLG200N Silent Nylon-string Classical Guitar Features:
  • Hybrid nylon-string guitar with Yamaha pickup and preamp system
  • Detachable design breaks the guitar down for easy travel
  • SRT Powered pickup system blends in studio-miked acoustic tone
  • Headphone input for silent playing and listening
  • Aux input allows you to play along with your music
  • Onboard tuner
  • Minimalist solidbody engineering avoids feedback
  • Natural acoustic guitar feel
  • Gig bag included
The Yamaha SLG200N Silent Guitar is a must-have for the traveling nylon-string guitarist.

Silent is golden

I love my new Yamaha SLN200N Silent Nylon String Guitar. My neighborhood is very quite at night and anyone playing an instrument can be heard a mile away. Now with my headphones plugged in. Only I can hear myself. Now I can practice late into the night.

Very Personal

One of the benefits of the solid body nylon guitars is the lack of reedy muddiness that comes from less than the finest traditional acoustic instruments. Godin and Carvin have been making solid nylons for years, but not like this one.Take your favorite Godin ACS, lighten it up by two thirds, add some shimmer with SLT imaging, allow yourself to aux in your favorite cd or mp3, AND have the ability to plug in your favorite headphones for a deeply personal experience in playing, and you have the Yamaha SLG2000N.As another reviewer mentioned, the enclosed earbuds are throwaways; you need a quality pair of headphones to appreciate the sound field. Also mentioned was the fact that your family doesn't have to listen to you work tirelessly over and over on a particular bar or phrase.That being said, the notes are attenuated, decay at a uniform rate (this is nylon, not steel), and have sheer presence in a balanced way that I'm not able to attain with my Godin ACS.You can dial in a couple of reverb settings and a mild chorus effect. You can also dial between the natural guitar sound, which is very good, to a miked image effect which is also very nice or stay in between.Don't let me forget to mention how beautiful and commanding the sound is from an acoustic amp (I plug directly into a Bose L1.) The articulation is superb, thanks to nylon strings, there is very little "squawk"or cross talk between strings. I use the Martin ball end as I find they make a nice uniform tuning experience.The upper bout can be removed at the strap buttons (very clever) to make this a nice traveler with the included gig bag.Due to a progressive disease which is eroding the use of my hands, setup was critical for me.My rep, Mike Godlove, and the final inspection team saw to it that this guitar was as easy for me to play as possible right out of the box. They always do superb work for me with all of my purchases.In summary, a top of the line instrument that begs to be played and held due to the nature of its weight and fit. It is unlike any other instrument out there and well worth the modest price.

Great guitar & very versitile.

This is one nice guitar for practice or plugged in. The built in effects are great & make it much more fun than a straight acoustic. I have it matched up to the Yamaha THR10C for practice when I don't want to use headphones. Speaking of which, get yourself a decent pair of efficient headphones & forget about the supplied earbuds. Mine have an efficiency of 114dB & that works well. Anything below 100dB efficiency may be a bit quiet. Note: the SLG200N that I received has a firmware bug that Yamaha has identified. When you play an "A" 4th string 7th fret it sometimes, 70%, glitches. It sounded to me like it echoed the note, but Yamaha cales it a pop in their service bulletin. My serial number is 3200320, but I don't know the re\ange that are effected. It's a minor annoyance, but if you are recording it may be a bigger issue. Don't let this bug stop you from purchasing this guitar if you are looking for a silent guitar or want to gig with an acoustic that is durable & easy to transport.

Love this guitar, but needed some saddle work

Sweetwater was great with the ordering and very prompt delivery. Guitar is really amazing, plays nice and feels like a real classical guitar. Only gripe is that the saddle was easily 1/4" too high!! I mean it was REALLY high; the guitar was unplayable past the third fret. Being a luthier I lowered the saddle and now it plays like a dream. Looks like a work of art; I'm very impressed with the quality and appearance. Electronics are about as good as you could expect for a nylon string guitar; it's hard to find a setting where the guitar sounds like a real guitar. That being said the reverb is nice, the chorus is a little fake sounding but all in all I'm very happy with the guitar and my wife is happy that she doesn't have to listen to me run through scales for three hours.
