We've designed the GL1 to be an ideal small guitar for home or travelling use and it's great for beginners. Its body is almost as small as a ukulele's but as it's strung as a guitar (with 6 strings), chord shapes and patterns are the same as you'd play on a regular guitar. Because of its shorter fret length, the GL1 is tuned up 5 semitones (so playing an 'E' chord shape from a regular guitar on the GL1 becomes an 'A' chord in pitch).
Alternatively, for a travel guitar with greater dynamics and a lot more options, try our APX T2 Travel Guitar. The APX Series is our range of high quality electro-acoustic guitars. Most models have a full-length fret board and all have a relatively shallow body. The pickup system is superb on all (with better tone and control with each model up). The APX T2 is the travel version of our APX500III guitar and inherits its great tone and playability - but in a much smaller body (though still significantly larger than the GL1). Unlike the GL1, the APXT2 isn't up-tuned (and so an 'E' chord really will be an 'E' chord).
