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.
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 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.
Guitarists at Guitar World 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.
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.
