No one needs this instrument, but want one, you definitely will. The Yamaha GL1 Guitar Ukulele is one of those instruments that you know is going to be fun, just by looking at it.
WHY GET ONE?
With the same dimensions as a quarter-sized classical guitar, it is the perfect travel companion for any guitarist, of any level, or even just as an extra guitar that you can pick up and play anytime you have a little spare time to kill but not enough to get your main instrument out. Another example of a practical use for the GL1 is as an introductory guitar for younger players, who want a nice sounding guitar to begin on. This is no toy however; check out the YouTube clip on this page to hear it being played.
SOUNDS LIKE A UKE, PLAYS LIKE A GUITAR
With the ukulele having gained resurgence in popularity in recent years, a lot of guitarists have found themselves lusting after one. For those who feel less comfortable with ukuleles, or who don’t know where to begin with when moving from six to four strings, the Yamaha GL1 Guitalele Ukulele is the perfect crossover instrument. With an A-A tuning (A/D/G/C/E/A), like a guitar with a capo placed at the fifth fret, and its smaller body sized, you get a sound that is similar to that of a ukulele but with the familiar playability of a guitar. A Gigbag is included, and when it comes to restring, just pick up some normal tension classical guitar strings and snip them to a suitable length.
Let’s be clear, this is the most fun you can have with your clothes on, but only because it is ill advised to play nude, as the Yamaha GL1 Guitar Ukulele’s shrunken dimensions won’t leave much to the imagination.
