My mom wanted to get me an ukulele for Christmas.
I opened this and told her the ukulele has 4 strings, so what is it?
She said the shopkeeper said it's an ukulele but they didn't have any more left with 4 strings.

It's electric, has 6 strings. I thought it was one of those mini/travel guitars at first.

What is the tuning supposed to be?

I can't find out anything from google searches as this doesn't seem to be a very common variant.


Okay. Thanks! A-tuning then I suppose? I'll give it a shot and see that it makes sense

Edit: Tuned to A standard, seems to be just right. Thanks

FWIW I've known these instruments to be called "ukuleles" despite having a different number of strings to a standard ukulele.
