  1. Alone

    A great guitar with a specific ukulele sound. Comfortable wider neck, excellent workmanship. There are only two things puzzling over. 1) no rosette. A rosette would be prettier. 2) The tuning of the guitar is a fourth higher than the normal tuning, which means it sounds like a normal guitar with a capo on the 5th fret. On the other hand, the measure (string length) is shorter and corresponds to the 7th fret. The strings are standard. So, with the recommended tuning, the strings are loosened. On the other hand, with a normal string, they sound like on the 7th and not 5th fret of a normal guitar, i.e. a fifth higher, not a fourth. I immediately re-tuned this guitar a tone higher to give the strings the standard string tension. The sound became brighter and stronger, richer in overtones.

    Due to the length of the strings and their standard thickness, this is how you should tune this guitar. I don’t know why the manufacturer gives the outfit a tone lower. Perhaps, due to the smaller and more weak construction of the guitar, the string tension has to be weaker? For now, I am staying with the normal stretch – a ton higher than recommended.
