The best !

30.07.2016
I 've got one of these as a gift couple of years ago and immediately fell in love with it. After a while wanted to upgrade to 300$ one because of electronics and just my own curiosity.
Got the expensive one and returned it, ordered back another YAMAHA and saved 250¤.
There's absolutely nothing bad about this great little instrument, and if you need to plug it in, get a external clip on pickup for 10¤.
i will probably get few more to live them at my folks, car, beach house etc...

Small, but funny :-)

11.12.2016
I've been playing guitar for 3 years, so I can not say too much about the sound because I have few comparisons.
That I have not bought a premium guitar, I was already clear and for the 79¤ the small Guitalele is really top. I have to peel off a star - the wood inside the sound hole inside, the glue is very visible in the guitar and on the paint there are two nadelnose noses. Disturb me very little, but belongs to the completeness just to that. The varnishing itself (I have the Tobacco Brown Sunbrust version), looks really good - exactly like in the picture.
I find the sound great. I am fascinated by how loud the guitar is. I did not expect that from the small body. (My aunt, a non-musician, the sound is even better than that of my big Yamaha sister C40 - he's much warmer and cuddly.)
I've read everywhere that had many big problems with the reduced-grip board. My left hand got it out very quickly. After five minutes simple chords went blind. Barre is hard because I just have too much arm beside me. The right hand took a bit longer. Single strings with plectrum play always only happens by chance. Much worse, however, I found the "retrogression" on the concert guitar - the fingerboard never seemed so huge before me :-)
All in all a small, fine guitar for the road - with the I will probably spend so many holidays. In addition, the small guitalele is extremely light (and a bit copulate).
I do not have them on the "right" A-tuning, but on Fis, so fitting the guitar with Capo in the 2nd Bund - sounds more like guitar and most of my songs I actually play on the concert guitar with Capo in the 2nd. Federation. On E tuned the standard strings are very, very loose and schlabbern still minutenlang, which occurs on Fis only very little.
In addition, I have a belt pin attached, so that the Guitalele does not always slip away. In its size, it partly falls to me almost from the lap.
I would definitely buy it again. As shown in Fig.
