An Epiphone Wildkat . Brand new, on sale, at Musicians Friend, $319. It's small, sounds great, semi hollow body, and is just an all around great guitar. Excellent for jazz, or rock.

The Wildkat is not a Gibson copy, either.

The Yamaha Silent Guitar is superlight, and it has a pleasing amplified sound.

I listened to the Yamaha 200s Silent guitar & fell in love with it. After I checked out several YouTube vids & read a few reviews, I bought one. It's on its way from California -- they have them here in Hawaii but the Cal one is $60 cheaper.

At Christmas I gave my Pono tenor uke to my grandson-in-law - because I love him, and because I needed to free up a hanger in my music room... for the Yamaha. So now I am down to 12 ukes and 3 guitars (2 dreadnaughts and the newly-purchased Yamaha). Since I get bad headaches & neck problems when I play the dreadnaughts, I need to figure out what to do with them. They will probably go to a couple of my grandchildren (I have several).

I really and truly appreciate all your help. This forum is superb! Hauoli Makahiki ho!

Here are two suggestions - you can find both used:

- Epiphone ES-339: A small body 335 style but width of a Les Paul. Easily find one used for $400 and under.

For more $$

- Taylor T5z: A hybrid Electric and Acoustic. This is the small body version of the T5 - also the size of a Les Paul. They have a number different models.

I second the Taylor T5z. Awesome guitar that can be used to play any style electric or acoustic.
