If you are looking for something just a little different from the ordinary, and want to mix it up with a new sound, this is your beast! Gorgeous solid spruce top tone-wood, ovangkol back and sides, with a sweet tone and playability that will set you apart in a crowd. It has a baritone ukulele look, feel, and sound with the tuning of a guitar (4 steps up) and your choice of 6 nylon or steel strings. Sounds like a ukulele and/or classical guitar, but plays like a regular guitar. This guitalele's low action and closer frets makes it ideal and offers ease of play for beginners and pros alike. I personally added a guitalele to my line up of instruments for my live gigs along with a ukulele and my 6 steel string guitar. I get comments from the crowd EVERY time on what an amazing sound this produces. Also the size is very convenient if you are a traveling musician. Can be tuned to E or A. We recommend to tune to A as this is the traditional guitalele tuning it was designed for. Also to avoid a possible additional set-up for proper neck tension. If you want to tune to E please let us know before we ship.
*4th step higher than a regular guitar (same as putting a capo on the 5th fret of a guitar). *Perfect as a travel guitar because of the size, but has the tone and quality to be your every day go to instrument.

Don't let the smaller body size fool you on this one. The range of tone, and the resonance will blow you away. Songs just spill out of this parlor. The solid spruce and solid ebony wood pairings are unique, and the sound of the marriage is absolutely incredible.
