By silent, do you mean the Yamaha ones? How do you like them?

I think I am fairly typical in owning three high quality guitars. My oldest is a cedar top 1969 Ramirez 1A, followed by a spruce top Cordoba 55-R, and a Yamaha practice guitar that is perfect for airline travel, (with surprisingly excellent tone for an instrument with no body). I am the original owner of all my instruments.

I also have a jazz guitar and a steel-string acoustic. I had enough trouble persuading my wife that I need these three different guitars. If I told her I needed, say, three classical guitars - well, I'll be honest, I wouldn't even try. I'm not sure I could even justify it to myself :)

Yes, one of them is Yamaha, the other that I use in the car is a cheap Sojing.
Sojing is a poor quality guitar but quite playable (after some adjustments) so it's still ok for practicing.
I'm quite happy with Yamaha, it's a good quality instrument with good playability, the sound from piezo pick up is pretty good so you can use it in a silent mode or with a pickup and headphones or amp. Holding position is a bit different from full-body CG because it's thin but I got used to it. The width at the nut is a bit narrow (52mm) but it's not a big deal for me. I bought a used one for $300 on Reverb.
