Though it’s striking enough to hang as a piece of art, the Yamaha Silent Guitar has way too many impressive features to let it sit untouched. Designed for the traveling strummer, this acoustic guitar has a quiet sound that’s ideal for unintrusive jam sessions. But when you plug in headphones, it turns into an electric ax with a slew of digital stereo effects, says BridgeSet Sound owner Steve Harner: “Essentially, it can sound like you’re playing the Wells Fargo Center when you’re really playing in your room at a Hilton somewhere.”

Buy it: $699 at BridgeSet Sound, Bella Vista.
