Yamaha SLG Silent Guitar

While the best time for you to jam out may be in the wee hours of the morning, your neighbors likely don’t agree. And for that Yamaha’s SLG Silent Guitar was designed. Notably devoid of a sound box, the contours of its body are instead determined by two pieces that detach for far greater portability than traditional guitars. The SLG’s sound is recreated using SRT Powered, a system that uses piezo pickups and accurate sound reproduction modelled after the tones of high-end acoustic guitars. So while the sound, which is up to 90% lower volume than ordinary guitars, won’t bother people in the vicinity, just plug in a set of headphones for a full-blown silent practice session.
