    Hi Bellgamin! I am absolutely no expert ... I barely play the guitar; but I HAVE got a Baby Taylor, which I think has a smaller bout than the GS Mini.

    Thanks everyone for the mucho helpful suggestions. This forum is THE greatest.

    I went for a travel guitar, as several of you recommended. I narrowed my search down to a Yamaha silent guitar SLG 200S versus a Godin Multiac. If you want to see/hear them, goto HERE.

    I decided on the Yamaha because (a) it's a lot skinnier, and (b) i liked its sound. It's on its way from California. They have them locally but the one from California is $60 cheaper.

    At Christmas I gave my Pono tenor to my grandson-in-law - because I love him, and because I needed to free up a hanger in my music room... for the Yamaha. So now I am down to only 12 ukes. Also 3 guitars, 2 dreadnaughts and the Yamaha, but I get a bad headache if I play the dreadnaughts so I need to figure out what to do with them.

    Again, I really and truly appreciate all your help. Hauoli Makahiki ho!

    Have a look at the Paul Brett range of Vintage Viator acoustics. Very small but not small in sound

    You might want to give the Höfner Shorty a try. Available in black, red and blue. There is a Höfner Shorty bass also.

    There are also the Martin LX1 and the Baby Taylor BT1,2, both smaller guitars The Baby Taylor is about 12.5" wide on the lower bout. Think the Martin is about 12". And the Pono UL-40 that is around 11.25".
