The perfect practice guitar
18.01.2017
I keep raving about this one. When I started playing the guitar, I got a dreadnought, nothing too expensive. It was great! It's pretty loud and slightly unwieldy though, so I noticed I only played the thing for an hour on a Friday when no one was home.

I made some progress, but it was slow.

At this price, the Yamaha GL1 seemed like quite the bargain so I thought: Heh, why not just pick it up?

Boy am I glad I did. This thing just lays around the house, and I seem to pick it up whenever I have a few minutes. Playing the guitar became PLAYING the guitar.

Now, by the time I play something on the dreadnought, I've probably already played it 20 times on this thing. It plays wonderful, resonates like crazy and truly is an instrument, not a toy.

Sure, some people would classify this as a travel guitar. Not me though. To me, this is the perfect practice guitar.

It's been so good, that right now, I'm eyeing the Cordoba Mini Series. A different price class, but the form factor is really ideal for anyone looking to gain some practice.

Why do I have this only now?
Wllm, 25.03.2020
It's just a lot of fun to play, it has it's own tone characteristic being all solid wood and I could even record sounding pretty decent. Since it's so small it turns out to be the one which is picked up all the time and played on the most.

Every home should have one.
26.01.2016
I bought two of these for my grandchildren. Everyone who tried them (the guitar, not the grandchildren) could hardly put them down. It's just a really well made instrument to have fun with and sounds very sweet indeed.
Bearing in mind the quality of these tiny instruments, they are an absolute bargain!
