Yamaha GL1 Guitalele Crosses Two Popular Instruments to Create a Unique Playing Experience
December 21, 2011
|Now available for the first- time in the United States, the Guitalele is a miniature nylon guitar that looks and sounds like a ukulele, but features six strings and is tuned like a standard guitar up to an A (A/D/G/C/E/A). Chord fingering is the same for any standard-tuned guitar, but now guitarists can easily join the ukulele craze with a portable, playable and thoroughly unique instrument.
“The GL1 plays well and gives guitarists a fun alternative to their usual nylon string guitar,” says Dennis Webster, marketing manager, Yamaha Guitars.
The GL1 retails for $140 and is currently available.
