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.
The SLG200N's SRT Powered design recreates the body resonance of an acoustic guitar, but in a bodiless shape. Yamaha developed SRT Powered, collaborating with recording artists to create a system tailored to the unique properties of the SLG body and modeled 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 guitar—right down to its natural sustain and decay—Yamaha 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. Since the SLG200N can virtually reproduce the sound of a guitar recorded with a microphone, players are free from complicated procedures involved in micing up a guitar when recording at home or in other settings.
The detachable top section of SLG’s 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, so if you are on the go, your SLG200N can easily come with you.
