Ukulele sound, but plays like a standard guitar.

The Yamaha GL1 Mini 6-String nylon guitalele is a unique mini 6 string nylon guitar that plays like a guitar but is sized like a baritone ukulele at 17" in scale. The GL1 is pitched up to A, or a perfect fourth higher than standard guitar tuning, at A/D/G/C/E/A. Guitarists will love its portability and distinct tone, while the nylon strings provide a mellow, resonant sound.

Take Your Guitar on the Road

Measuring just 27.5" in length, the GL1 slips easily into the included gig bag for transport to lessons, jam sessions or busking at your favorite spot. Its petite size makes it perfect for travel, letting you continue honing your skills wherever you roam. The GL1's scaled down proportions also suit younger players and those with smaller hands.

Familiar Feel, Unique Sound

The GL1 features a fretboard and neck modeled after a standard guitar, so guitarists will feel right at home. But its higher pitch and warm, mellow tone courtesy of the nylon strings set it apart. Strumming full chords or picking intricate melodies, the GL1 has a distinctive voice that cuts through without overpowering other instruments.

High Quality Components

As with all Yamaha instruments, the GL1 is crafted with premium components for superior playability and tone. The select spruce top provides articulate highs and mids, while the locally sourced tonewood boost warmth and resonance. The modified classical style bridge and tuners keep the GL1 in tune and intonation accurate.

A Unique Addition to Your Collection

Whether you're a beginner looking to start your first mini guitar collection or a seasoned player seeking inspiration, the Yamaha GL1 Guitalele is a fun, one of a kind instrument sure to spark creativity.
