    True. I had the Córdoba C1m 1/4 and it was just under 19" scale with 1.75" nut. I really liked it. My custom Jupiter has similar specs, a smidge wider nut.

    If you want E-to-E, definitely go 1/4 size or baritone guilele. Although I agree G-to-G is really better. If you want A-to-A, go with tenor guitalele.
