The acoustic-electric six-string is perfect for quiet practice, and small enough to be taken just about anywhere

NAMM 2022: With three new ultra-affordable DST series electric guitars, the Rising-G Pro carbon fiber guitar, and intelligent DMI Smart Guitar, Donner had an incredibly impressive NAMM.

The up-and-coming company also turned heads at the show with its travel-friendly new headless Hush-I Silent guitar, which we were lucky enough to get a closer look at on the show floor.

Boasting a one-piece cherry or mahogany body and an ebony fretboard, the headless acoustic-electric guitar is – with a built-in headphone jack – perfect for quiet practice. The bars on either end of the six-string's body – which allow it to sit in a player's arms more like a conventional guitar – are detachable, too, making it easy to carry along in the included gig bag.

The Hush-I Silent also features a phase switch to rein in feedback, a volume knob and a two-band (Low, High) EQ. Its built-in battery, meanwhile, features 50 hours of life, for plenty of portable play. 

The price and release date of the Donner Hush-I Silent have yet to be announced, but Donner maintains that "multiple configurations" of the guitar will eventually be made available.

Be sure to check out our NAMM 2022 news hub and live blog, too, for all of the hot new releases we saw at this year's edition of the world’s biggest guitar gear show.
