We recommend getting a ½ scale guitar for kids between 4-6 years old, a ¾ scale guitar for kids around 6-10 yrs old, and a full scale guitar for kids ages 11 and up. These are averages, so if your 6 year old, for example, is on the taller/bigger side, they might do well with a ¾ scale guitar. It’s best to try out a couple sizes at a local guitar shop to make sure you get a good fit.

A common mistake is buying a guitar that’s too large for the child. If you find the right fit, your child will feel confident every time they pick up their guitar!
