Portability, comfort, and inspiring sound.

The Yamaha SLG110N Silent Acoustic-Electric Guitar lets you practice with headphones, yet enjoy the realistic sounds of an acoustic instrument. The nylon-stringed Yamaha silent guitar features a lightweight maple body, mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard, and breaks down quickly to fit into included gig bag for easy transport. In comparison to a traditional classical guitar, the SLG110N's slimmer neck and lower action allow the player to develop a quicker and more aggressive style.

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, P.A.s and amps. Also includes a durable gig bag.

Silent design makes it perfect for home use or practice
Compared with a normal acoustic guitar the Silent Guitar "acoustically" produces only 1/100th the amount of sound energy and 1/10th the amount of sound volume (tested in-house). Such excellent silent characteristics make it great for playing anytime or anywhere.

Built-in DSP effect adds the richness of reverb
Electronics include piezo in-bridge B-Band (EMF) pickups and an internal DSP. The digital effects taken from the class-leading SPX studio effects and industry-standard digital mixing consoles developed by Yamaha Commercial Audio, audiophile quality and the ambience of a warm, small room or luxurious large hall are with you wherever you are. 4 effects are avavailable; Reverb1, Reverb2, Chorus and Echo.

AUX IN lets you play along with your favorite recordings
Connect a CD or cassette player, etc. to the AUX IN jack and play along with your favorite recordings. This feature is a great way to improve your playing quickly. An AUX volume control offers greater control over sound balance.

Detachable frame offers comfort and easy transport
The Silent Guitar's unique design offers excellent comfort and support even when played while seated. A cutaway design provides full access to the upper frets. The upper frame detaches from the main body and fits, along with the rest of the guitar, neatly into a compact case that makes carrying easy.

Exceptional!!! Well Done, Yamaha!!!

By Guy Catalano

Comments about Yamaha SLG110N Nylon String Silent Guitar:

I have been playing nylon/classical guitar (non-professional intermediate) for over 40 years and own a 53-year-old Goya and a Takamine I bought in 1986, but have never ventured into any amplification for my nylons other than external mic-ing. In July of this year while visiting Piazza Navona in Rome, I heard an excellent guitarist playing with the most beautiful amplified tones, and on the oddest-but-cool--looking guitar. It was the Yamaha SLG110N. Upon my return I immediately ordered one. I was a little leery of having chosen the Tobacco Sunburst finish as some of the photos on the internet looked like it might be a cheap red-to-yellow ramp/blend. But what I got was a beautifully finished darker stain to predominantly light wood ramp.The guitar is worthy of being left out for display as it is certainly a conversation piece with a wonderful functionality.

I bypassed the included earpiece headphones and plugged in my favorite studio pair and was immediately impressed with the tones I could produce. The treble and base pots along with the effects selector (2 reverbs, chorus and echo) are very good even through an amp.

For this guitar I can truly say "well done, Yamaha". It is both an elegant and practical solution and does not compromise too much for the convenience of its portability.

I highly recommend.
Everything you need including headphones, A/C adapter and a really nice travel case. The guitar is well constructed, beautifully finished, and breaks down very easily to pack. Everything was well thought out in designing this guitar.
Well thought out and executed. The wood finishes are particularly nice on mine. The input/output and control section on the back is plastic, but very well done. Everything has easy access from the playing position. The included case is very nicely done and sturdy. I would not hesitate to travel with this guitar as carry-on on an airline.
It's a little pricey for a travel guitar, but there are others that are more expensive, but I think this one is well worth it since I would not hesitate to use it to perform with. In fact there are some very nice and serious classical performances on YouTube using this guitar. I have no regrets over the price.

perfect practice guitar

  • Plays Like Full Body
  • Very compact


  • sound needs improvement

Best Uses

  • Silent Practice
  • Travel Guitar

Comments about Yamaha SLG110N Nylon String Silent Guitar:

The guitar is well made with good quality case. It should fit in an aircraft overhead no problem and there is plently of room for full-size headphones and music in outer pocket of case. The proportions are good and it feels very much like a full-body guitar when played in the classical position. The action is very much like other Yamaha classical guitars I have played. My only complaint is that the amplification of the bass strings can cause some buzz in the headphones (I am using high quality Bose headphones so the problem is related to the guitar electronics not the headphone). I don't know whether the problem is with the pickup or the amplifier; I have only played the guitar with the headphone jack. The reverb and chorus effects are fine for practicing. Overall, this is a really useful practice guitar and the only travel guitar that I have found to be practical for flying and practicing in hotels.
