Pepe Romero Custom B6 Baritone Guilele German Moon Spruce & Spanish Cypress "Lil' Pepe" #339 - TUNED F#-B-E-A-C#-F#

Stop and look no further. If your a guitar or ukulele or guitarlele player you have found by far the greatest baritone guitarlele (or guilele or guitalele or gitalele) that has ever been made in the history of the universe.

What is a Baritone Guilele?

  • Body size of a baritone ukulele
  • 29-1/2 Inches - Total Length (from top of headstock to butt)
  • 19-1/8 Inch Scale Length
  • 1-17/18 Inch Nut Width
  • 6 Strings
  • TUNED F#-B-E-A-C#-F# (Tuned up whole step from standard guitar).
  • TOP - Solid German Moon Spruce
  • BACK & SIDES - Solid Spanish Cypress

This is #339 which means it is the #339 instrument that Pepe Romero Jr has ever handmade. Please understand that Pepe Romero Jr is one of the best luthiers of guitars, guileles, and ukulele that is alive today.

Pepe took the musical genius that is inherent in his family, the Romero's, and instead of focusing on being a world case concert musician like his dad, Pepe Romero Sr., he decided to focus on building instruments. 

Besides being my friend and one of the kindest persons you will ever meet, Pepe is fully committed and dedicated to the art of building the best instruments.

Everything on the B6 Baritone Guilele is handmade by Pepe Romero Jr himself. There are no CNC machines, no outsourcing of work, it is 100% hand made from the best wood on the planet.

Even the neck is hand carved from a solid piece of Mahogany to get it down to the finely tuned masterpiece that it is. Easy to play, smooth, slim, and super comfortable when playing chords or fingerpicking.

Now the wood...

The top is made from solid German Moon Spruce. There is a story of how Moon Spruce is cut. I may not have got the facts 100% correct in the video but Moon Spruce is harvested at a specific time during the moon cycle when the sap is the lowest to ensure clean wood that sounds bold and powerful.

The back and sides is solid Spanish Cypress. Cypress is not common wood used in many ukuleles but I can tell you that the combination of the Spanish Cypress and the German Moon Spruce produce the best sound I have ever heard on an instrument before.

The final touch on all of Pepe's handmade instruments is the French Polish that is applied to the wood. The French Polish is a old traditional way of applying the shellac to the instrument to produce the finest finish you will ever see. It's a time consuming process that takes weeks to do as each thin layer of finish is applied one at a time until you have built up at least 30 layers.

The benefits of the French Polish over traditional spray on finishes is it allows the wood to breath producing the most fantastic overtones and brilliance you will hear from an instrument.

The French Polish is a labor of love because of the time, effort and skill required to put it on. Most builders don't do it because it is not cost effective, which is yet another example of the care and dedication Pepe Romero Jr has to making instruments the right way.

    If in any case you would like to return your instrument, we offer a 7 day return policy.

    We ask that you pay for shipping back, and as long as the instrument is in mint condition, you will get a full refund (minus the return shipping and original shipping costs).

    You will receive your refund as soon as we receive and inspect the instrument. If a strap button or pick-up was installed on the instrument, a 10% re-stocking fee will be added (alternating the original instrument in anyway limits the people that might consider purchasing the product).
