The Yamaha SLG200S Silent Acoustic-Electric Guitar is the perfect choice for quiet practice. With the guitar’s sound running through headphones, you can play and experience the realistic sounds of of a steel-stringed acoustic. The Yamaha silent guitar features a lightweight mahogany body, with a detachable upper frame for portability. The neck is constructed from mahogany, and features a rosewood fingerboard. The Silent Guitar "acoustically" produces only 1-1/10th the amount of sound volume; which makes the SLG200S great for playing anytime or anywhere.

Electronics include Yamaha's SRT Powered system modeled 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. 4 effects are avavailable; Reverb1, Reverb2, Chorus and Echo. AUX IN lets you play along with your favorite recordings.

The Yamaha SLG200S is designed for easy transport. The silent acoustic-electric guitar has mini-stereo inputs for plugging in a MP3 or CD player for play-along. The Yamaha acoustic-electric guitar interfaces well with acoustic-effects processors, PA.s and amps. Silent design makes it perfect for home use or practice. Also includes a durable gig bag.

Great guitar, loving it


This guitar is GREAT! Love the looks and the sound. Not really silent, but its sound is extremely smaller comparing to a regular acoustic. Does wonders. People in another room definitely can not hear it.



Good for practicing


Unusual design, but does the job



A wonderful choice in a silent acoustic!


The SLG200S puts great acoustic tone out the monitors. I took to this instrument immediately. It felt like an old friend right out of the box. It is gorgeous (natural finish) in person and sounds amazing. An excellent choice in a silent acoustic where you can hear (w/o phones) while tracking any effects or processing you may use or just straight through. The SRT system combined with the pezo works wonderfully. I prefer the onboard SRT sound to a fishman aura or other imaging pedals I have used. Also-I'd never heard an acoustic guitar blasting through my cranked JMP2204 or dsl50, but WOW! and no feedback! BRAVO! and Thank You to Sam Ash for a great deal shipped fast and secure.



Sam Ash is the best!


Yamaha silent guitar arrived as promised and everything is great! Looks and works like brand new! Will definitely check out Sam Ash again...



Great product and service

Interesting Acoustic


Works well for picking up acoustic again. Quiet enough to play with the family around, and paired with iPad apps it makes a quick amp and practice session. Action is a little tight, but not unbearable.

Best Guitar Purchase I've Made


Bring the Yamaha SLG200S to work so as not to bother my co-workers during my lunch time.

A Great Alternative!


After touring with a full-size acoustic guitar for so long, and having to do too many fly-dates with it, I had to either accept that at some point I was going to wind up with a case full of splinters, or find a better alternative. The silent guitar is that alternative. It plays and sounds great. Would I record with it over my good dreadnought? No, but live through a PA it sounds fantastic. The on-board effects and tuner are decent. Nothing fantastic, but do the job if needed. It loses a star, however, because the strap buttons (which also double as the top frame set-screws) tend to loosen when using a strap. I'll have to find a way to keep that from happening in the future. Otherwise, though, this is my new touring acoustic, and I will accept the small infractions while making my travel life way easier.
