With a high 4th string your Ukulele group can't refuse you
Prime Design, 02.04.2019
Brilliant ukulele for a guitar player to fit quickly into a ukulele group. Finger-board works great with guitar chords! Only drawback is the slightly rough body edges, which might require some 'retro sanding' and varnishing. Overall though; a brilliant little guitarlele, complete with a high 4th string!

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.
