First let me say I have small hands.

When I play my kid's 3/4 acoustic it feels much more comfortable than my PRS I've had for 10 years, although I've adjusted. The thing is that I've always struggled to reach the low E string higher on the neck.

My question is, are there quality 3/4 scale guitars out there? Where would be a good place to start to look?

I believe both Martin and Taylor make 3/4 acoutic guitars. If you have the budget, why not do a custom build?

Sorry, should have specified that I'm looking for an electric.

If you can find a used Gibson Godess LP or SG, they are great for smaller people. I'm not sure what the scale length is, but they are soposed to be 80% the size of the standard LP/SG.

He doesn't want a thinner neck, he wants a shorter one.

Once again, if you don't know what you're talking about don't post.


If you're having trouble reaching the E string, there might be a serious problem with your technique.

I dont think scale length is the problem, its neck width. I have a 19" Burswood (China) kids thingy and the neck width is still 2 1/8". My son has a Pan hollow body that has a narrow neck. well, narrow at the nut, but the string spacing at the bridge is normal, so when you get up to the 15th fret you lose most of the 'benefit' (or inconvenience) of the narrowness.

Where do you hold your thumb? Are you choking the neck or keeping your thumb in the middle of the neck? Choking seriously restricts your reach.

Try looking at SX and Douglas guitars from rondomusic.com with a few upgrades they are pretty solid guitars and they make shortscale guitars. They have short scale strats and shortscale telecasters.
