My sister bought me a mini guitar while she was in mexico and it had these crappy plastic strings on it. It sounded alright but I wanted to put better strings on it. I put standard acoustic guitar strings on it, but now after I tune it, it sounds completely awful like it is way out of tune. Do I need different size strings or is there something I'm missing. I know it is sort of a souvenir but I like playing it because it sounds like a ukalele. Can someone help me?

Plastic strings? You mean nylons? Just get some classical strings, and take the steels off of it, they'll ruin it.
those little things can't be used as regular guitars, they're just not built for playing
or r they ukulele
