SPOILER: even the best guitaleles aren’t all that common.
That’s right – despite the worldwide love for this kooky instrument (that’s pretty much the result of a guitar getting cosy under the covers with a uke), very few manufacturers actually produce a guitalele. Something that we can’t help but find deeply puzzling, as being just 1/4 of the size of your average guitar, guitaleles are pretty much the perfect combo.
The size & portability of a uke, fused with the 6 strings & a lot of the ‘fretage’ that you’ll find on a guitar. Something that pretty much SCREAMS “travel guitar” & should appeal to the majority of casual players & even kids too! Plus, this instrument ain’t without its claim to fame; the guitalele featured in the iconic song by James Blunt, ‘You’re Beautiful’.
All of which really does beggar the question, is the guitalele still an untapped future icon? And if so, which are the best guitaleles for sale today? Read on to find out…
