Yamaha's unique Silent Guitar fuse traditional and ultra-mordern influences to create a practice and performance instrument of unmatched practicality and individuality-a rare combination and one that has to be experienced to be believed.
Excellent sound and controls
The Silent Guitar utilizes a B-Band? pickup system fitted beneath the instrument's bridge.This high performance system delivers rich,full-bodied classical guitar tone and excellent response.Bass and treble tone controls mounted on the body for easy access give you total control over the guitar's tone.Also,being a solid body instrument that uses no microphone, the Silent Guitar eliminates the worry of feedback when performing live with a sound system.
Silent design makes it perfect for home use or practice
Compared to a normal classical guitar the Silent Guitar "acoustically" produces only 1/100th the amount of sound energy and 1/10th the amount of sound volume(tested in-house).Such excellent silent characteristics make it great for playing anytime or anywhere.
Built-in DSP effect adds the richness of reverb
The Silent Guitar is equipped with a built-in DSP effects processor that's designed by Yamaha. This circuit offers two types of reverb that ,when activated, envelopes the warm tone of the Silent Guitar with rich reverb that will give you and your listeners the realistic impression that you are performing on the stage of a concert hall. You'll be amazed at the emotion and inspiration that this feature brings to your playing.
AUX IN lets you play along with your favorite recordings

Detachable frame offers comfort and easy transport
The Silent Guitar's unique design offers excellent comfort and support even when played while seated. A cutaway design provides full access to the upper frets.The upper frame detaches from the main body and fits, along with the rest of the guitar, neatly into a compact case that makes carrying easy.
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 new 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 gigbag 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 new 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 the family is home. The SLG200S is eighty percent quieter than a conventional acoustic guitar.
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 duel 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 come with a built-in precision chromatic tuner, compatibility with both battery- and AC power, and a range of other user-friendly features.
