GL1 Guitalele Crosses Two Popular Instruments to Create a Unique Playing Experience

ANAHEIM, Calif.—Now available for the firs time in the United States, the Guitalele is a miniature nylon guitar that looks and sounds like a ukulele, but features six strings and is tuned like a standard guitar up to an A (A/D/G/C/E/A). Chord fingering is the same for any standard-tuned guitar, but now guitarists can easily join the ukulele craze with a portable, playable and thoroughly unique instrument.

"The GL1 plays well and gives guitarists a fun alternative to their usual nylon string guitar," says Dennis Webster, marketing manager, Yamaha Guitars.

The GL1 (MSRP: $140) is currently available.
