I bought this model of Yamaha's silent guitar because it has near the same nut width (52.5mm) as my regular classical guitar - an Alvarez Yairi CY116 (52mm). I like to practice late at night and the Yamaha's near silent functionality helps me keep from disturbing others. Amplified, the guitar sounds quite nice - clear tones. I've not used the reverb functions much other than to test them but sustain is obviously heightened and the echo produces some nice musical effects.

Aesthetically, this guitar is gorgeous. Mine came with no fit or finish issues and the high-gloss amber sunburst coloring makes it pop when on a stand. Haven't traveled with it yet but I have no concerns that it won't fit in an overhead compartment once the upper bout is removed. The padded soft case is sufficient for such purposes.

Highly recommend for those desiring a lightweight, practice guitar.

I actually own the SLG120NW, purchased used in like new condition from a classical guitar teacher. It has a wide nut and Rosewood fretboard. As best I can tell, the "NW" signifies "nylon wide" and if you are a serious classical guitarist or serious student, I recommend the wider nut (about 2.2 inches). It seems like current choices are the 130NW with the wide nut and ebony fretboard or the 110N with rosewood fretboard and narrower nut (2 inches). Yamaha is abysmal at publishing these details and it seems like the models and availability may vary widely from country to country.

About the guitar: It's an aesthetic marvel in my opinion. Visually, it's a blend of classical charm and Apple-esque design philosophy. I don't know if it won any design awards, but it probably should have. It's about the same weight as a normal classical guitar and if you close your eyes, it's practically the same tactile sensation as playing a regular classical guitar. The body is, of course, thinner but the way it balances combined with the shape of the bouts makes it feel like it touches your body in most of the right places. The only thing that's strikingly "wrong" to me is the screw at the tail that holds the upper bout in place and doubles as a tail pin. Because of the way I hold the classical guitar, the pin digs into my right thigh a little and that's a very un-classical sensation. I use a Dynarette cushion on my left leg because I have a bad back and the front of the lower bout is very narrow. This makes the guitar a little unstable, but I got used to it very quickly. I guess the main point is that I can switch between this guitar and my 'real' classical guitar pretty much seamlessly and I don't feel like the Silent guitar is apt to encourage any bad habits or hamper my practicing in any way.

Yamaha SLG-130NW (Classical version)

As most users have commented (I also find):
Overall, GREAT instrument.
Beautiful design, and build quality, good materials.
The electronics are top notch. The controls are simple but essential and effective.

What does not seem to have been commented:
1. It is noticeable heavier than a conventional classical guitar. This heavier weight is kind of unexpected for a box-less, frame-only, electronic, instrument. I think this is probably due to the massive solid wood used throughout. Lifting/holding it with the left hand is how I noticed this. I do wish it were lighter, since classic guitars are not meant to be used with a neck strap support. Overall, it is still OK weight-wise, though.

2. Although the nut size and neck width are pretty much conventional size as compared to a classical guitar, I did put mine along with the SLG-130NW side by side after feeling that the strings were somewhat closer together in the SLG, and verified that they ARE. It is obvious even by sight. In my guitar, which is a 1979 unit from a notorius luthier at Sevilla, Spain, both E strings are closer to the edge of the fretboard at the nut. The difference was confirmed by a bone nut I got along with a bone saddle (The Yamaha saddle and nut are suitable synthetic material, confirmed by Yamaha parts people). I got these bone pieces from an unfamiliar Amazon supplier of "quality" items. The quality was there. The nut length and height was exactly as the Yamaha's, but the received bone nut has wider spacing for strings at the nut, which matches my old luthier-made guitar.
