Actually those refer to different scale lengths. Smaller guitars have shorter scales and are thus easier to play for students, children or people with small hands.

A 4/4 Strat, for instance, would have a scale length of 25.5" (someone correct me if I'm wrong on the numbers). A 3/4 Strat would be 22.5".

I've personally never heard of a "7/8" guitar.

I thought this method of measurement was only used for classical instruments like violins, cellos, etc?

actually i believe 3/4 would be 24.5
That statement is kind of useless without specifying which guitar you're talking about. Electric guitars have by far the least standardised scale lengths of all stringed instruments.

or a "4/4" guitar for that matter...i've heard of 3/4 as in three-quarter size, obviously.

That would be a bitch...imagine having to have a different guitar for each time signature, very Nigel Tufnel
