just a quick question. you know those kinda half sized guitars that kids usually get for christmas and never play... are they tuned to standard eadgbe or are they supposed to be tuned to a different pitch?
They should still be standard EADGBE tuning :p They are just smaller for kids to handle the size... Try giving a Dean Dimebag razorback killswitch to a 10 year old and tell me how that turns out.

Yes, it should be EADGBE standard.
You buying a guitar for a kid?


Ibanez RG2550Z/SRX430
Alesis Core 1

I'm a student. I've got no time or space for an amp!
Well... I guess you probably could tune them up higher if you wanted an alto guitar, but that would require a different set of strings than what comes with it, and a new set up. Generally they come in standard tuning.
