Product Information of Yamaha GL1 TBS

The Yamaha GL1 TBS 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 PB matte finish.
  • Neck: The GL1 features a neck crafted from nato wood, complemented by a rosewood fingerboard hosting 18 frets. It has a scale length of 17 inches and a nut width of 1.87 inches.
