  • fantastic, fun little instrument

    As reviewed by lucas on 7/7/2011

    i've spent the better part of 15 years playing punk, heavy rock and noise -- most recently with a gibson sg, a marshall jvm and a host of effects pedals. loud. but my alter-ego, escape-from-the-city campfire side implored me to start looking at ukuleles and small classical guitars just to get back to basics. while i'm still exploring the uke options, the yamaha guitalele is the perfect bridge instrument since it plays exactly like a guitar, albeit in a different pitch range. anyone with passing knowledge of first position guitar chords will find this a winner, and theory-heads might find a novel way to shred away on this tiny acoustic. after owning it for a week, i still haven't turned on my marshall. it does have a few downsides. it loses tune fairly easily, and the intonation leaves a little fidelity to be desired ... but what it lacks in precision (it is only a hundred bucks, after all), it more than makes up for in charm. anyone hoping to find enjoyment in the utter simplicity of a happy-sounding little instrument need look no further. throw it in your backpack, take it on the road and go full-on hobo bohemian. it'll feel really nice ... and sound even better.

  • Great purchase

    As reviewed by RICK on 12/30/2014

    Myhusband and I purchased this for our daughter for Christmas. She had been asking for a ukelele. She loves it and has taught herself a lot of things already. Since it's a cross between a ukelele and guitar, she feels like it is something "different" than the regular guitar, yet plays very similiar. She has had no guitar experience either, but this is a great start for whatever route she would possibly take later. Thanks for the great idea, Guitar Center!
