Yamaha's newest in the SLG silent guitar line is SRT Powered! What does that mean? 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 SLG200N is ninety percent quieter than a conventional classical 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.

Well not exactly wicked but this innovation exceeded my expectations. I've got a Baby Martin and a Taylor Mini GS I use as travel guitars, they've taken the back seat to my new YAMAHA SILENT NYLON STRING GUITAR. Hey I don't play nylon string guitars and I was floored with the versatility of this guitar...its got reverb, echo (cho on the dial), blend (sweet symphonies in one tiny dial) built in!, All you have to do is dial up what you want. OK OK there are diehards out there that believe only real traditional guitars will only ever work for them on planet Earth. But I'm sure the modern electric guitar was scoffed at by yesteryears traditionalists. Something about this guitar makes me play even better and more accurately, almost like it's teaching me, that's gotta be a PLUS for any guitarist, beginner or expert. Austin Bazaar was fast and there for me....although they left my guitar tuner out of the package I bought, of course, if you own a Yamaha Silent guitar you'll know it has a built-in Tuner and you don't need a stinking separate tuner( or maybe I do for my next Austin Bazaar guitar purchase, wink wink). I'm all in with this guitar, and perhaps it's not for you but you owe yourself to give it a try if you are a serious musician...
