Guitalele? Yamaha's GL1 is a hybrid musical instrument new in the US. It is a miniature nylon guitar that looks and sounds like a ukulele, has six strings and tuned like a standard guitar except pitched up a fourth as if you used a capo placed at the fifth fret. It is tuned: A/D/G/C/E/A. It's about one quarter of the size of a classical guitar.
Chord "shapes" (chord finger positions) are the same as any standard tuned six string guitar: an E major chord shape sounds like an A major etc. It reminds me of one (of many) tunings for a baritone guitar--also six strings usually tuned from A to A. Guitarists could add the ukulele to their multi-instrument repertoire with the GL1 and carry this little guy in a gig bag accessory pocket.
The GL1 sells for $140 MSRP and there is much more info at: Here
