So here I sit still coveting a guitelele... Specifically the Yamaha GL-1.
It seems to me that I should be able to go to any mall music store and grab one for about $150... And that would be true, if I didn't live in the US.
For some unknown reason Yamaha only sells these things in the EU - and in limited supply in Canukistan (Canada Alan, Canada).
I've tried twice to get one via phone to no avail. It's like they are a prohibited substance.
Meanwhile you can go play all the crappy Yamaha nylon student guitars you want... everything in the line - except the GL-1.
Anyway - here is a lovely girl from the UK (I think) who absolutely shows us all what a GL-1 can do.
She's pretty damn good - and nice too. Give her a sub and tell her to play more uke.
