This guitar, which is supported by many guitarists including professional artists, is expected to have new models in the future. It has come to be used not only in Japan but all over the world
Features of silent guitar
Silent guitar is a guitar developed with the concept of “anytime, anywhere”. It is a guitar that allows you to practice anywhere and anytime, making it a very ideal practice guitar. Silent guitars are designed so that the live sound of the instrument is not loud. Originally, the sound of the guitar is loud because the string vibration is resonated with the body and amplified. On the other hand, the silent guitar has a body with no top or back, only the frame, and is designed to eliminate the resonance part. Silent guitars only pluck the strings. Many people say that guitars suffer from “placement problems” in addition to sound problems, but silent guitars are thinner than ordinary acoustic guitars, and can be stored compactly by removing the frame on the bass side. increase.
