    Default What Guitalele should I buy?

    I read where some guitalele's are tenor size and some are baritone size. I have a 17 inch scale tenor ukulele. My GL-1 Yamaha Guitalele also has a 17 inch scale.. I want a guitalele with the same scale as my 20 inch scale baritone ukulele. What guitalele should I buy?

    Pono’s guileles are built on the baritone scale and are the best I’ve tried yet.

    I just recently purchased a Pono MB-6. It is a 20" scale length baritone. I had a Cordoba Mini a couple years back, but the Pono is so much better in terms of quality, playability, tone, and sustain. I also like the 1 3/4" nut width, which is what most of my acoustic guitars have. Couldn't be happier. This one will never be sold.

    I'm going to assume you want suggestions on the lower end of the scale. You won't find one as cheap as the GL1 but I'm going to suggest the Cordoba Mini (the original not the "II") and Islander GL6.

    A cheaper alternative is the Cordoba C1M 1/4-size but it is 19" scale.

    If you're considering the Pono, you should also consider the Koaloha Opio and Romero Creations TT6

    The Romero B6 is a good one also but around a grand brand new. 20"scale with solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides. Pepe has them in nylon and steel strung models.

    If you want to go very inexpensive Kmise makes a 20" guitalele for $80. This one has some good reviews on YouTube. Seems good for the price.
