Romero Creations B6-SM 21" scale Baritone Guitalele Guilele Solid Spruce/Mahogany
The first thing that struck me when trying the B6-SM out was just how little I missed the full scale length and sound created by a full size classical guitar. This Guitar really does offer a comprehensive classical guitar experience at a size that could fit in a large suitcase. The higher register notes really ping and ting with a slight flamenco edge and the lower tension makes this feel much easier to play than the classicals I am used to from learning growing up.
The thru-bridge is a unique feature in the classical guitar world but much more familiar to us Ukulele folk and it adds something visually to the instrument. The whole thing feels compact, refined and very modern but the sounds it produces are tinged with an almost pocket like Rodrigo y Gabriella or Julian Bream sound in the hands of a skilled player.
The final thing of note is the Gotoh Planetary tuners which could spoil the whole thing if a lesser manufacturer was at the helm but here they offer balance and poise taking away the classical guitars signature slotted headstock and geared tuners in place of something precise and a modern spin on Ukulele/banjo tradition.
