The Yamaha SLG200S Silent guitar is designed for the professional touring musician that want to be be able to practice on the road, in hotels, vans and pretty music anywhere without making much noise at all. For a more beginner-friendly alternative that’s cheaper too, consider giving our Yamaha F335 review a read.

The electronics on this guitar are super solid which is great for practicing with head phones and even plugging in and playing.  A feature of the electronics that come in handy is if you want to plug through and interface and record ideas to your computer program of choice and not have to make noise while doing it.

The rosewood frame is detachable which give you an impressive playable neck that has an impressive natural acoustic tone when used with headphones or line out. Speaking of acoustic, Yamaha creates some great acoustic guitars as well with warm tones like the one in our Yamaha FG800 review. Overall, the SLG200S is a cool looking guitar that has a lot of value for anyone that needs a super quiet guitar.

9.1 Expert Score
  • The Yamaha SLG2006 Silent Guitar looks amazing and has a lot of value in it's design, from being light weight to being cool looking
  • The electronics are stellar, creating a high quality acoustic tone through headphones or an amp
  • The perfect guitar for any situation where an acoustic guitar is too much
  • Especially valuable for the professional guitarist that travels for a living and between cars, hotels, and back stages, need a super quiet instrument to practice on and record ideas
  • It's slightly big for a guitar intended for the traveling musician
  • The term silent is used to describe the style. this guitar is close to silent and as quiet as possible but don't take the word 'silent' literally
