Contrary to popular belief, electric guitars are an instrument that requires you to master two very different things. One is, of course, the playing technique, but the other is utilizing the hardware of that guitar and that of the amplifier in order to dial in a great tone.
The Yamaha SLG200S Silent Steel-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 SLG200S Silent Guitar can do for you.
Yamaha SLG200S Silent Steel-string Guitar at a Glance:

- Play silently with big-guitar tone
- Great live acoustic sound with none of the feedback
Travel with ease
With the SLG200S, 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 SLG200S's slim body breaks down 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 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 SLG200S, 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 SLG200S 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.

- Great for practicing when quiet is required!
I always worry that I am going to drive my sweet wife crazy practicing the same pieces all the time. This guitar is the answer for those of you that need to practice loudly to get the tone out of your real classical or flamenco guitar and not bother anyone. Only two very minor complaints - the earbuds suck - use headphones. And the body depth is rather thin which I easily adjust. I gave it five stars because it solved a problem I had - my guitar teacher said I played too quietly - I needed to play louder to get the tone out of my guitar. I've had this two weeks now and really love it!
