This guitar is about 33" long. Sounds great as straight acoustic or plug it in for a gritty sounding git.
This one has medium acoustic strings and is tuned to CGC. With the lighter strings I thought this tuning sounded the best. Other tunings work as well...Check out You Tube for all kinds of tuning and playing ideas.
My ukes and guitars are made one at a time in West Central Minnesota, and each has it's own distinct sound (strings, box size, materials, sound holes and pickups).
