This is basically a ukelele sized nylon string guitar, but tuned a fourth above a traditional guitar. It's a great way to get a unique sound in your mix. I was particularly interested because I wanted a ukelele (or something similar) but didn't want to learn a new instrument, so this was perfect. Naturally, the frets are small, but I have long fingers and can get around it just fine. This model is acoustic-electric, so it's great for small gigs and open mics (those nights I don't want to lug around a full guitar!).
