Product Information of Yamaha GL1 NT

The Yamaha GL1 NT is a unique instrument that combines the portability of a ukulele with the sound and feel of a traditional nylon-string classical guitar.

  • Body: The GL1 has a small, guitar-shaped body with a spruce top and meranti back and sides. It has a natural matte finish.
  • Neck: The neck is made of nato wood and has a rosewood fingerboard with 18 frets. It has a scale length of 17 inches and a nut width of 1.87 inches.
  • Strings: The GL1 uses nylon strings, which provide a warm and mellow tone that is ideal for classical, flamenco, or folk music styles.
  • Tuning: The GL1 is tuned like a guitar, but with a higher pitch. The strings are tuned to A-D-G-C-E-A, which is equivalent to the top four strings of a standard guitar, plus a high A and E string.
  • Accessories: The GL1 comes with a soft gig bag for easy transportation, as well as a strap button so you can attach a strap for more comfortable playing.

This guitar is a great option for musicians who want a portable and versatile instrument that can be played anywhere, whether at home, on the road, or at a jam session. Its small size makes it perfect for kids or beginners who want to learn guitar, or for experienced players who want to experiment with new sounds and styles.


The Yamaha GL1 NT has several features that make it a great instrument for a wide range of musicians.

  1. Portability: One of the key benefits of the GL1 is its portability. Its small size and lightweight construction make it easy to take with you anywhere, whether you’re traveling, playing at a gig, or just practicing at home. The included gig bag makes it even easier to transport.
  2. Sound: Despite its small size, the GL1 has a rich and full sound that is well-suited for a variety of musical styles, particularly classical, flamenco, and folk music. The nylon strings produce a warm and mellow tone that is pleasing to the ear.
  3. Playability: The GL1 is easy and comfortable to play, even for beginners or those with smaller hands. The nylon strings are less tough on the fingers than steel strings, and the guitar’s small size and shorter scale length make it easier to reach the frets and play chords.
  4. Versatility: The GL1 is a versatile instrument that can be used in a variety of musical contexts. It can be played on its own, as a travel guitar, or as a supplemental instrument for classical guitarists or ukulele players.
  5. Affordability: The GL1 is relatively affordable, especially compared to larger or more expensive guitars. This makes it accessible to a wider range of musicians and a good option for those who are just starting out.
