Half guitar, half 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 guitalele's tuning is pitched up to "A" (or up a 4th) at A/D/G/C/E/A.

Camsuke reviewed and played his:

He plays it here:

I bought it new, tuned it to regular guitar tuning and was disappointed. Since learned a Guitalele is better in A tuning. Has less than 20 minutes playing time on it.

Since then we have moved on to around 25 ukes and a Kanilea Islander Guitalele. I have no use for this little guy. Save some money at my expense. $75 shipped in CONUS.

Have slip cover case. Have to find it. Will include if located.

If I hadn't just received an amazing custom guilele in the mail this week, this would be very tempting. I'm kinda tempted anyway.

But I have to add that James Hill is clearly playing a 4-string in that video and it has a fancy cutaway/bevel. I don't know what it is, but I'd find it very difficult to believe that started out as a GL-1.

Jim, you are SOOOO CORRECT. I saw a link indicating Hill was playing a GL-1. Never really looked at the video. Doesn't take eagle eyes to see it was a four string. Now I'm feeling my 70 years! Ugh. Where are my reading glasses for computer?

No reference to Hill - removed it. THANK YOU for catching that Jim!

All is well on this end! Thanks much!

Looked it over, tuned it up and played around a bit. Looked down and the pick holder made me skip a beat! How the heck did I not see that? lol
