I wanted to share a little project that I put together with you in case anyone else is interested in doing something similar. Let me first give you a little background. I play mostly electric nylon string guitar. I wanted a nylon string hex out guitar that played well, was light weight and had good ergonomics. I've owned a Godin Multiac Nylon SA and it was ok but it was heavy and kind of clunky. I just didn't like the ergonomics. I was going to purchase a Carvin NS1 recently but I imagined that it wouldn't really be that much better than the Godin. It's basically made the same way as the Godin in that the body is routed out of a solid piece of wood and that makes for a very heavy guitar.I owned a Yamaha Silent nylon guitar some years ago and always loved the way it played and felt but didn't particularly like its electric sound. Plus it doesn't have hex out. I sold it. But recently I got the idea that I could install a hex system in a Silent guitar. After some research I ordered another SG100N and a Graphtech System complete with the Hexpander and Acoustiphonic boards. It took some work but here is the result. Well it was a great success. The guitar works really well with the VG99. I'm really interested mostly in clean and acoustic sounds but you would be amazed at how well it works with the electric models too. I do get a little of the subsonic noise you guys talk about with the GR300 model but I think I'm getting less than some describe and it's only on the VCO setting. The sound of the Graphtech system is not harsh like the RMC in my opinion. I blend the normal pickup into many of the patches that I've created and that really enhances the sound of the patch nicely providing a warmth and richness that is lacking otherwise. I'm still looking for better knobs and since I took these pictures I've installed Gilbert Tuners just to make the guitar perfect. This is exactly what I've been looking for in a nylon string hex out guitar.Chris

QuoteHi Chris!REALLY hoping you're still around on the forums, that you still have this guitar or at least good leftover knowledge on it.
