Yamaha GL1 Guitalele
The Yamaha GL1 Guitalele, now officially available for the first time in the USA is 50% guitar, 50% ukulele…100% fun. A unique mini 6-string nylon guitar that is sized like a baritone ukulele (17” scale) and plays like a standard tune guitar. The GL1 tuning is pitched up to “A” (or up a 4th) at A/D/G/C/E/A.
- 17" (433mm) scale length is sized like a bari uke, but plays like a guitar
- Spruce top for a broad dynamic range that stands up well when strummed heartily.
- Meranti back & sides deliver gorgeous appearance and tough durability
- Nato neck w/ matte finish plays fast and smooth
- 1.88" (48mm) nut width is narrower and easier to play than a standard classical
- Rosewood fingerboard produces a warm sound to tame harsh high end
- Rosewood bridge gives stability and a rounded tone
- Natural, Persimmon Brown or Tobacco Brown Sunburst satin finishes
