Inspired by traditional classical guitar design, the SLG200N features a slim neck, thin body, and low action that lets players adopt a more aggressive style, allowing even those players who wouldn't normally choose to perform with a classical guitar to play it with ease.Sound by SRT PoweredSRT 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 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 guitarright down to its natural sustain and decayYamaha 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.PortabilityThe detachable top section of SLGs frame means that practicality and portability are way beyond that of a conventional guitar. The luxury gig bag provided can be carried with ease and fits into an aircraft overhead compartment with room to spare.PlayabilityThe 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.DesignWith the SLG, Yamaha set out to bring a modern feel to the classic contours of a conventional guitar.

When you play certain combinations of notes it will cause the internal pickups to make some kind of slight popping noise, like a digital feedback hiccup. I tried 2 Brand new models and both did the same thing. Maybe not all of them have this problem, and both the ones I tried were the natural color version, so maybe the other colors are fine. I contacted Yamaha, and they said they had received a similar complaint from another customer, but claimed that they did not have any of the 200N's on hand (back-ordered) so could not test the problem. No comment on that, hopefully they can fix the problem. Otherwise it plays fantastic with a decent set-up, I agree with the other reviewer that I like playing it better than my regular classical guitar.
