Hey all, I have small hands, and have an old crappy Mako guitar. I'm starting to save for my first new electric, and am wondering if the size of my hands will, or should dictate the guitar I purchase. I like the look of PRS guitars (especially the Starla) but I don't know what will work for me.

Any suggestions? Thanks all in advance, Will

small hands shouldn't affect the guitar you buy/ will be able to play. at the most it will tke a few minutes of playing to get used to a bigger size

You don't need any special/specific guitar. Just try out as many as you can at your local shop(s) and find one that feels comfortable. Sure, your hand size should dictate your guitar choice to some degree, but for the same reason as anyone with any sized hands. The guitar should feel comfortable, give a good tone acousticly (it's important with elecs, if it gives a flat, dull tone unplugged it'll sound about the same plugged in), feel fairly rugged, and look cool to you.

The last one may sound unimportant, and to some degree it is, but you'll feel more inspired on a guitar that looks freakin' awesome to you then you will on some clunker. Just shop around and find somthing that suits your taste.

prs's usually have 25" scale which is a little on the bigger side, strat's are smaller, most cheaper guitars will be smaller scale

Strat's are bigger 25.5" Most Guitars are around 24.75" (Gibsons, Ibanez etc.)

Fender Jaguars and Mustangs are 24", that might suit his needs the best.
