    Hello,

    Don't know if it's relevant to this thread but I think it might be of interest to you : after spending many years with a Gretsch 9126, I just received yesterday a Valencia CG-350, and this may be the ultimate guitalele for me : with a scale length of 465 mm, there's plenty of room but the best part is a comfortable 52 mm (!) at the nut, so it's almost a regular CG neck with the small body of a guitalele. Last but not least, I changed the terrible stock strings and put a set of Savarez Prodige 38 ; with that I was able to achieve a regular E tuning with a serious tension. The vaulted back compensate for the "thinline" body and the instrument has a strong voice and plenty of sustain. There you have a real small guitar for a fraction of the price of the Cordoba Mini... Strongly recommended !
