Cordoba Giulele CE

*Andy*, 13.01.2015
I have recently received a Cordoba Giulele CE and am so far very pleased
The instrument is nicely finished and with good intonation.

Here are a few observations -

the action could be slightly lower for my taste, though it is not a problem and I won't be bothering to do anything about it
the sound is (obviously) not as full as that from a guitar, though it is pleasantly more rounded than a typical ukulele sound .... the 'plugged in' sound is lovely - very mellow
it would have been useful to have a strap button (I am using a neck loop)
a built-in tuner would be nice, though not necessary.
the finger-board is slightly narrower and the frets closer than I am used to (understandably) but it'll be no real problem with a little practice and familiarity

These comments are 'nit-picking'. There is nothing to really criticise and much to like about this instrument. It has obviously been built with care and skill, and if you accept the sound as neither that of a guitar nor a uke, but as a timbre in its own right, then it is an attractive little instrument. It will make an excellent travel guitar and a useful addition to the musical arsenal.

Perfect sofa dwarf

Spot, 22.12.2013
My little Guilele came with a little delay in a gigantic carton. I mean GIGANTIC! Mannshoch - so packaged they could have been thrown out of a plane and they would have arrived without damage. :) The tiny guitar comes in a very reasonable pocket, is great processed and well adjusted. All materials are well chosen and used. The matte Finnish completes the impression positively. A piezo pickup works cleanly and is still very easy to operate with three small sliding knobs.

I chose the cutaway model to get to the top - not really necessary, I believe now. The scale of the Guilele begins at the 5th fret of a regular guitar, the scale also requires very small fret spacing. To be clean in the area of ??the 12th League you have to be very clever. I would probably do it again, I like her so much.

The fingerboard is generally good to play. Of course, smaller - you need some practice, but the guitar produces every sound as expected. No rattling, no snarling, even if one is more firm. Everything goes! And perhaps the most important thing for all interested parties: Yes! They can be quite right, the vices do good service! When unpacking, the fingerboard and the string spacing seemed smaller than I expected (I had never had the Cordoba cordon before) but, honestly, what did I expect? It's a Guilele! Today the proportion seems very successful!

An asterisk I prefer for the sound. Not because there's something wrong with that. I think more can be made out of such a small instrument and around 277, - EUR not. But one is at the border of physics and my judgment is not only to measure how amazingly small a guitar can be in order to sound as good as it should be, but to emphasize generally that the small size, the sounding qualities necessarily throttles.

So, or so, the Cordoba Guilele CE is my small companion on the sofa, always hangs on the wall and I like to play with my little Yamaha amp. Reinforced you can quickly remove the Uke sound and can pickings as well as chord play Practice fine. Something reverberates miracles.

Who is interested in this instrument?

- Anyone who would like to have a guitar at hand, wherever he is. Travel Size? Yes absolutely!
- Anyone looking for something Uke-feeling and do not want to deal with new fingerprints.
- Anyone who would like to make music in a confined space.
- and, of course, everyone who wanted to have a full-fledged miniature and have not been able to find toys so far!

My clear recommendation. Maybe you should look at the tiny Yamaha before you decide, but, who knows what a small guitar is to be expected, can do with Cordoba nothing wrong.
