REVIEW: Yamaha SLG110S Silent Guitar

You know how it is. You want to take your music with you wherever you go, but that’s not always practical. Oh sure, you’ve tried the odd mini travel guitar, but you’re so wedded to the joys of a full-size neck that the experience just wasn’t the same. The strings are too close together, the scale is all off. In short, it just didn’t do it for ya.

That’s where Yamaha’s Silent Guitar comes in. Available in nylon-string and steel-string versions, Yamaha’s Silent Guitar is designed to go anywhere you do, and to allow you to practice quietly but with great tone. It’s designed to be easily portable thanks to its partially removable sides, which keep the guitar light, allow it to occupy a smaller footprint, and keep the volume down.

There are two nylon string versions (the SLG110N has a more player-friendly neck shape compared to the more traditionally-shaped SLG130NW) and a steel-string version, the SLG110S. On review here is the steel-string version, which is available in Natural (as reviewed), Tobacco Brown Sunburst and Black Metallic[geo-out country=”Australia” note=””]( Click Here to buy the SLG110S in Natural from Guitar Center)[/geo-out].
