Wonderful mid priced Guitalele from the Kanile'a Islander range. Made with a laminate spruce top with laminate Acacia back and sides. This instrument offers a very affordable way into Kanile'a build quality and know how - features like a pinned bridge and the touch and release bracing pattern all make this instrument sound way above its price point. Very minimal in appearance, with a satin finish, no binding or bling at all, the focus is really on fundamentally quality build which leads to a very good sound, much better than any other Guitalele short of the big daddy Kanile'a!

This is from the Kanile'a website:

"Our GL6 is a hybrid instrument that Joe developed to bring the convenience of the ‘ukuleles’ size with the chord playability that guitar players love. This instrument has our unique Super Tenor body in combination with our 20 inch Baritone scale joined at the body on the 16th fret with 22 frets total. The tuning of this wonderful instrument is “A D G C E A” or the same tuning as a guitar with a capo at the fifth fret. The volume and resonance that projects from this instrument is phenomenal. Hear for yourself a new voice that is appealing to both the ‘ukulele and guitar aficionado."
