Three quarter size guitars are suitable for children from about nine up to smaller adults, this is dependent on height and hand size. The guitars here are all suitable for beginners and nylon strings help prevent sore fingers which will discourage practice. Please read carefully what is supplied, some of the guitars here will just come in a box, others have a range of accessories which could save money in the long term! It is common for classical guitars to arrive out of tune or with slack strings. Please get a guitar teacher of other responsible adult to tune the guitar. Pitch changes continually while strings are new so a good investment would be an electronic guitar tuner and ask a teacher to show you how to use it.
