I've tried the Yamaha one several times. Toyed with the idea of it for portability. The only thing stopping me is the thought of having to transpose everything 5 frets down. lol. Still think a nice little parlor guitar will suit me better. It's just hard for me dealing with the fact that the bass E string gives almost no volume or tone on any parlor I've ever tried.
I think that one string alone will be the thing that makes me pull the trigger on a certain model. If I ever find one where that string doesn't "seem" to be almost non-existent or negligible as far as the rest of the strings tone/volume goes, that's what will speak to me most. I like hearing that string. lol.
===================================== One Alvarez in the hand is worth two Taylors and a Martin in the guitar store!
Went back the Guitar shop to day, played the Yamaha Guitalele again, strange didn't like it this time. Played some Tanglewood Crossroad guitars, didn't like them either. One one guitar that I liked today don't no the model but it was a second hand Recording King, played it a while, put it back on stand, played one or two other guitars, went back to try the Recording King again, only to see someone walking out of the shop with it. Thought it was a good one.
