  • Summary: I would highly recommend this as a 2nd guitar. Nothing replaces a real classical nylon acoustic guitar, but after researching many different alternative travel guitars that cost anywhere from 1/4th the price to double the price of the Yamaha, this model was the clear winner for me in terms of price, looks, sound, quality, and features. Professional guitarists like Brian May can afford anything, but has used the Yamaha Silent Guitar on stage.
  • Pros: No Feedback On Stage, Portability, Quality, Silent Practice, Travel
  • Cons: No built in tuner, Strap not included

Good Guitar -Enjoy playing it

GuitarEnthusiast, Yamaha

  • Summary: I use the guitar to practice without disturbing others. It feels great, it does the job, and I would like to keep it, however I haven't been able to find a support that will fit this guitar. I use the 'A-Frame by Sageworks' in my standard classical guitar, but this one is too thin for that. I wonder if Yamaha has one for it already, or knows of one. Thank you.
  • Pros: Does Not Disturb Others, Excellent Craftsmanship, Great Intonation, Great Sound, Highly Responsive
  • Cons: Can't Find Back Support

works for reason I purchased

  • Summary: This guitar is perfect for silent classical practice. The earbuds r comfy & had more bass than most cheapy brands I use for spares - I try for lite weight & comfort. I prefer to use a tone preamp to adjust for whatever performance tone is needed, but the digital effects provide a nice practice convenience. I love the high fret neck access.
  • Pros: Durable, Earbuds Better Than Most, Great Silent Practice, Great With Preamp, Solid Tone Vibration
  • Cons: Action Too High, Body Rims Need Padding, Bridge Placement Flat, Plastic Elec Box Vibrates, Sharp Edges Higher Frets

Nice practice guitar.....

  • Summary: Nice design and nice looking "wood" frame. Sounds great plugged in to an amplifier. The thin body works weel for me since I'm not big in size(5'). There is a slight rattling in the body of the guitar somewhere-changing strings didn't change it.
  • Pros: Easy To Play, Great Sound
  • Cons: Rattling In Body

Slick guitar...

Classical lover, Yamaha

  • Summary: I bought this guitar mainly as a practice guitar...didn't want to wake people up at night. The guitar is light and portable. I did notice a slight buzzing/vibration sound from the frame when the 3rd/4th string were hit. Maybe the stock strings needed to be changed. It is not too noticeable with the headphones on. Yamaha, you guys need to include much better quality earbuds/headphones for the price of this line of silent guitars.
  • Pros: Lightweight Portable
  • Cons: Slight Buzz Sound

Yamaha SLG130NW Silent Guitar

Herve, music123
13 December 2011
  • Summary: I purchased a new Yamaha SLG130NW Silent Guitar last week. The guitar is mostly OK in all respects, but is not all all suited to the serious classical guitarist. Yamaha informs that this guitar has a 52mm ebony wide neck, this is correct. However, the strings spacing at the Nut is only 8.2mm, and this is identical to the narrow neck SLG110N.
