In January 1997, Yamaha Corporation came out with the GL-1 Guitalele.
A guitalele (sometimes spelt guitarlele) is a guitar-ukulele hybrid, that is, "a 1/4 size" guitar, crossed with a classical guitar and a tenor ukulele.
The guitalele combines the portability of a ukulele, due to its small size, with the six single strings and resultant chord possibilities of a classical guitar. The guitalele is variously marketed (and used ) as a travel guitar or children's guitar.
A guitalele is the size of a ukulele, and is played like a bass pitched up to “A” (that is, up a 4th, or like a guitar with a capo on the fifth fret). This gives it tuning of ADGCEA, with the top four strings tuned like a low G ukulele.
