Guitaleles are miniature guitars. As the name suggests, they are a hybrid between a guitar and a ukulele. They are approximately one third the size of a normal guitar, and even smaller than a child’s guitar, only a little larger than a ukulele. A small guitar also known as a “requito”, has been reduced to facilitate its use. But do not be fooled, the guitalele offers the compactness of a ukulele but with six nylon strings instead of four. Being tied with 6 strings gives you the ability to play like a classical guitar transposed to “A” (like a guitar with a Capo in the fifth fret), which makes it an interesting instrument halfway between a ukulele and a guitar. We rented the Yamaha GL1 Guitalele in Barcelona.
