    Does any one on here own one of these? I contacted the company and sent an e-mail about free shipping, customs, etc. I am now waiting a reply.

    I could easily fall in love with a Kanile'a GL-6 or better, however, I am not sure it is worth a divorce due to price to obtain one. The Romero Baritone 6 is also a beautiful and desirable instrument. This AS is hell. If I could just get the wife to love playing guitar and love it, then I could buy her one for Christmas or birthday. So, back on earth, I am considering a Cordoba Mini or SSG-8. Still reseaching both.

    Thanks to everyone for the information.

    Very limited experience here, but I have played a Cordoba Mini M and I liked it a lot.

    I have a RC Baritone 6, GL-6 and a Mini R. The Mini R is great for only two bills but the Baritone 6 and GL-6 are so much better in terms of tone and feel the Mini never comes out of the case anymore. Of the three I prefer the sound and playability of the Baritone 6: perfect balance between bass and trebles, long sustain, plenty of overtones and a delicate voice extremely responsive to color changes. The balance of the instrument is also perfect and I can play it sitting down, with a strap or crossed legged on the floor and it kinda floats and lets my hands move freely. However, I find the 49mm nut a little on the small size and have to be careful I don't mute adjacent strings. The GL-6 is a bit of a strange bird with a super tenor body and really long neck (joins at the 16th fret!). It's shockingly neck heavy and really only playable with a strap or footstool (classical style). With that said, it has a more traditional classical guitar like tone than the Baritone 6 and the wider nut is a joy to play on. String resistance is on the stiff side so it needs to be more lightly strung than a tenor or baritone ukulele.

    The Mini has a 20"scale and the Mini II has a 22 inch scale, is that correct? I ask because on Amazon I could only find Mini II with a 22 inch scale.
    You are correct, the Mini has a 20” scale length. The new Mini II has a larger body and a 22” scale length. The Cordoba website gives all the details, it is an excellent source of info.

    The Kmise (available on Amazon) has a 21" scale. Not very expensive.

    Well I have been having second thoughts about Guitalele and my short scale guitars. My Yamaha CS40 has a 23 inch scale. But my Aria A 20-53 has a 21 inch scale. So basically I have a Guitalele with a little larger body than normal for a Guitalele. Would there be much difference in the sound of the Aria as compared with the Guitalele.? Would strings for a 21 inch scale Guitalele work and sound right on a 21 inch scale guitar?

    Here is the tricky part.......tuning. A “guitalele” is usually or typically tuned A-A the guitar is E-E. Strings are very different diameters and tensions. You can tune a guitalele E-E using high tension classical guitar strings, I have that on my Pepe Romero which is a 20” scale.
