This guitalele is my first-choice instrument, and this is my second time buying it. Yes, I have two, one I left with my family so I don't have to travel with it overseas (although it is pretty perfect for travelling if you ask me) and now I have one at home. I've played it for 8 years, two of my friends also have added it to their instrument collection. It's quite a unique instrument: it's so light and small, I can play, sing and dance with it all at the same time. I am a small person, that's important to me, and it was the first thing that drew my attention to a guitalele. It's range is comparable to a guitar. I learned playing on it, and I couldn't ask for a better and gentler instrument to help me transition to acoustic and electric guitars. After many years this is my number one instrument to noodle on, play with friends and record with. It is better to hear the sound of it on a video, rather than me trying to explain sound here, which I highly recommend. It grows on you very fast.
