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 6 nylon 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.
*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. *Buy with Confidence! 30 day warranty. If you aren't in love just send it back in the same condition it was received and you'll receive a full refund minus shipping costs.

I had one of these installed with a K&K pure mini pick-up. Sounds REALLY good. If you want that one, it will add $150 to the price for the pick-up and installation hereof. Shoot me a message if you want it!
