Half guitar, half ukulele, the Yamaha GL1 guitalele is 100% fun. This six-string nylon mini guitar is the size of a baritone ukulele and plays like a standard guitar with known chord positions, as the pitch is a quarter above the traditional guitar pitch: A - D - G - C - E - A. That is, it is like playing a normally tuned guitar but with a capo at the fifth fret.

For the top he chose spruce and meranti for the bottom and flanks, a mahogany-like wood. This guarantees Yamaha GL1 not only structural integrity but also good definition and sound support.
The neck is made of nato, a hard and sturdy wood, with a fretboard in rosewod, the same material as the bridge. Although the frets are closer together than a full-size guitar, the Yamaha GL1 guitalele is very comfortable and fun to play whatever the size of the hand, whatever the level.
It is an ideal instrument both for starting the young on the six strings, as well as for traveling, having a hand in a festival tent or for practicing and developing the technique of more advanced musicians.
