I need help finding a good acoustic guitar best suited for my cousin who is 6 years old. What do you guys reccommend?
#2
What sort of price range are you looking for? A good quality guitar that will last and still be quality as your cousin grows is the Baby Taylor. It is nice and small but still has a great sound and isn't one of those cheap guitar that wil turn to crap.

Check out the little yamaha. It's a touch over 100.00 dollars and souds really good for a lilttle guitar!

Baby Taylors are quite expensive. I would probably recommend an Art & Lutherie Ami. It's a parlour sized guitar so it's small, but even when your cousin grows up, he'll still be able to use it since it's a full sized guitar.
Equipment:
- Art & Lutherie Cedar CW (SOLD! )
- Martin D-16RGT w/ LR Baggs M1 Active Soundhole Pickup
- Seagull 25th Anniversary Flame Maple w/ LR Baggs Micro EQ

It annoys me when kids sit there playing the sweet child o mine or smoke on the water intro riff repeatedly
and badly
and so loud the whole shop can't hear themselves think
and with the worst amp settings possible

I just got an Epiphone AL. Sounds great! It was 100$ discounted for the holidays at Daddy's Junky Music.

It's great except for the sharp frets
I think if it was my decision i'd go with the Captivate's Art et Lutherie Ami. They sound/look really good, plus their craftsmanship is top notch.

A cheap, small one, half size. Quality will be wasted on a six year old.

To a six year old, it will be nothing more than a sound making toy, unless your cousin is some sort of child prodigy.

I would by a $39 Kmart special. See if your cousin plays with it for more than five minutes.

Make sure it has nylon strings.

there is a mitchell acoustic for about $100 that sounds amazing, especially for the price. I would go with that because it is very easy to play compared to other acoustics.

I agree with this poster. Unless you have alot of money to throw away on a guitar that may or may not be used as a toy, go with one from Kmart or Walmart. We bought our son one from Walmart (First Act) for about $70 a few years back. It came with the acoustic guitar, gig bag, and a nice instruction book with a CD to go with the book and play along with. We wanted to make sure he would take an interest in it before we invested in a good one. After the first year of owning his first guitar, he invested in an electric one, and has since bought another one. He now owns a Gibson signature series electric guitar. Good luck. It is always so inspiring to see young people with such awesome talent.
