The Cordoba Guilele CE Acoustic Electric Guitar is a small, travel size guitar with a ukulele sound, feel and size. A crossover instrument with the size, sound, and feel of a tenor ukulele but with six strings, tuned just like a guitar, only higher*. This small six string is light, portable and a great travel option for guitarists on the go. It’s also a fantastic instrument for the ukulele player looking to explore the guitar, or for the adventurous guitarist searching for new sonic territory.
Cordoba Guilele CE Acoustic Electric Guitar Features
- Small, travel size guitar with a ukulele sound, feel and size
- Combines the utility and pliability of a nylon string guitar with the portability of a ukulele
- Tuned up a fourth from standard guitar tuning but can be tuned to the standard guitar tuning
- Solid spruce top, mahogany back and sides, a rosewood fingerboard
- Cordoba 2Band Piezo pickup system
The Guilele CE is built with a solid spruce top, mahogany back and sides, a rosewood fingerboard, and a natural satin finish. It features an active two-band EQ undersaddle piezo pickup system, and a cutaway for added upper register access.
*The Cordoba Guilele is designed to be tuned up a 4th from standard guitar tuning (same as a guitar with a capo at the 5th fret - A D G C E A - low to high), in the register of a traditional ukulele. Because the scale length of the Guilele is so much shorter than a guitar, standard E guitar tuning is not possible on this particular instrument, even with an alternate set of strings.
