OVERVIEW

Plays like a guitar with the warmth of mahogany and the convenience of a ukulele.

Kala Brand Music Co. has added a new model to its Guitarlele series with the introduction of a mahogany model, the KA-GL. The mahogany model is a more affordable version of Kala’s Koa Guitarlele, which is a hybrid instrument that fills a niche for guitar players looking for the perfect travel guitar as well as ukulele players exploring guitar for the first time. The six stringed instrument is tuned to A-D-G-C-E-A and projects a bright full tone, similar to capoing up on the 5th fret of a regular guitar.

The KA-GL is constructed of mahogany back and sides and projects a full rich sound that makes the guitarlele the perfect choice for all players seeking to add a new voice to their sound repertoire.

Features include rosewood fingerboard and bridge, chrome Grover tuners, bone nut and saddle, black and white dual rosette, Aquila strings, and a satin finish.

Comments about Kala 6 String Guitarlele:

Never thought I would have one of these. Obviously not for serious gigs! But maybe just for fun? With a certain amount of self doubt, I ordered one. It arrived soon enough, in good time. Got it out of it's box thinking it looks kind of strange, but it's a hybrid after all. Liked the nice wood grain and the satin finish, but the action seemed just a little high. Action is taken care of in "set up," you can do it yourself (very carefully), or pay an expert to do it (probably worth it). Even very expensive Instruments often need "set up" when new.

With a couple days of getting acquainted, the guitarlele doesn't look so strange anymore. It feels quite comfortable in my hands. I have a hard time finding large enough gloves for winter, or for rough work. Also I started trying to learn to play on a guitar with a wide neck and nylon strings. At this point in time I have decided I definitely like it. It's worth what I paid for it. It looks nice, tunes nice (after the usual new nylon string stretching period), and plays pretty nice too. Good enough tone I think. My fingers find the top of the neck a little cramped for space, but that's just the way it is with a tenor ukulele neck, and may be a little more noticeable with two more strings, and a wider neck.

If you sometimes find yourself caught up in the ukulele world, and the classical guitar world, this is both. Going around the house or somewhere out and about, can't decide which one to take along, take this, it's both. That's pretty cool I think. It can't duplicate the tone of an all solid wood, case queen. But than it's a good bit less fuss and bother to take care of, and expense to own, and this is all about fun, not formal concerts. Should have a comfy case for travel, and fits a standard tenor uke case well enough, a lot better than I thought it would (not the Lanakai case sold here by Musicians Friend though, it won't be long enough inside).
