A Ukulele-sized Guitar

Not sure if you want to play a guitar or a ukulele? Play both! Cordoba's Guilele CE is a unique instrument that combines the guitar's six strings with a ukulele-sized body. It sports a spruce top and mahogany back and sides for big tone from a small instrument. The Guilele CE is handbuilt by Cordoba in the traditional Portugese style for a great playing experience. And the beautiful detailing on the Guilele CE, from the wooden herringbone inlay to the chrome tuners with pearl buttons, makes this one uke you'll love for a lifetime. For premium playability and craftsmanship, choose the Cordoba Guilele CE.

Cordoba Guilele CE at a Glance:
  • Great ukulele tone from premium tonewoods
  • Plays like a guitar, looks like a ukulele
  • Handmade quality
Great ukulele tone from premium tonewoods

The Cordoba Guilele CE's warm and robust tone comes courtesy of its spruce top and mahogany back and sides. The mahogany neck is ideal for optimizing the transfer of string vibration to the mahogany body, for a deep and rich sound.

Plays like a guitar, looks like a ukulele

The 6-string Guilele CE plays just like a guitar, but has a much smaller body. A guitar-friendly 1.81" nut width makes this instrument comfortable to play. You'll love the portability of the smaller size, especially for travel. The Guilele is tuned a 4th up, which is the same as putting a capo on the 5th fret of your guitar. Cordoba's Guilele CE features the Cordoba piezo pickup with 2-band EQ, for great sounding amplified performances. You get control over Bass, Treble, and Volume, for optimized sound no matter where you're playing.

Handmade quality

Every Cordoba Guilele CE is handmade for maximum quality. You'll appreciate the care and attention to detail as soon as you strum your Guilele CE for the first time.

The Cordoba Guilele is tuned up a 4th (same as a guitar with a capo at the 5th fret - A D G C E A - low to high).

Cordoba Guilele CE Features:
  • Small-sized acoustic-electric guitar
  • Mahogany top, back, and sides for a warm, rich sound
  • Elegant look with hand-inlaid patterns
You'll get great performance from the acoustic-electric Cordoba Guilele!

Great job Córdoba !!! ,very well made guilele !!!

This tenor style ukulele has very nice warm tones. Great sound projection from this little guy. Easy to play right out of box. The piazo pickup and EQ are a great added feature when playing with other musicians. Replicates true sound of guilele. Big thanks to Mike Picotte for his expertise and answering of all my questions. Sweetwater you guys Rock !!!!

This is my first Uke-like instrument... and I love it!

I have to admit that I didn't expect such a great sound from something so small. I mostly got it because of it's size, so I could take it on vacation and practice on the go. But, I had to make a video with it as soon as I got it in my hands. I did a Ska/Reggae medley and was even more surprising when I connected it!Again, thanks to Cordoba for making such wonderful instruments. And, thanks to my friend Robert Williams for helping me out and shipping them to me!See you next time!Fernan

Unique with great tone.

This is a great little instrument. I mostly play it finger-style with alternate tunings (most people say tune down.) It has very good tone (surprising low end) for an instrument its size. It's undoubtedly a great travel sized instrument, I even saw a guy at LAX with one. I've plugged it in and its amazing with my Fishman Loudbox Mini. I also have to mention that the aesthetics are a plus, it'll turn heads. Recommended most for those who want a unique sound, travel, play ukulele, or guitar. I'm very pleased with this piece.

Tune up

The quality is ok (although it's made in China) except the nut and the bridge need a little more works on them. I don't think this kind of design should be tuned to A D G C E A. The force is too much to the bridge and the soundboard. I tuned mine to G C F Bb D G.
