My son turns five in June and he's decided he's ready to rock so he wants an electric guitar.

I'm looking for somthing decent thats half size, I've found the Tanglewood Electric elfs and a couple of other things but what he's really after is a Flying V, although he will settle for somthing else if it takes his fancy.

Does anyone know any good sites for kids electric guitars? There is an added complexity which is he's left handed so he may have to end up doing a hendrix but would prefer not to.

Thanks

While I can't sell you mine (my daughter's actually). The squire mini strat is a good choice. The tuners need to be replaced as it won't hold a tune with the originals, it has proven to be a good little guitar. Comes in lefty too... I can't really help much with where to look in the UK though.

HTH,

Epiphone sells a mini flying V...

Or they did a few months ago, I'm having a bitch of a time finding it on Google though.

Try ebay if you're interested. A Flying V would be a good choice, because it is pretty much the only guitar that is completely symmetrical, so it isn't weird when you make it left handed.


Otherwise I'd recommend an Epi PeeWee Les Paul, or the Squire Mini Strat. Neither are terribly nice, but there's not a big market for mini guitars.

You may find the Epiphone VeeWee (http://www.tachyonlabs.com/veewee.html) somewhere, but it's now out of production.
I found this at one of my favourite suppliers, unbeliveably cheap, and it is left handed -

(They charge 10 euro =£7 shipping, regardless of what you order. If you play yourself, get some Pyramid strings at only about £2 a set)

Ugh... Does that say the standard tuning for it is A-D-G-H-E-A...

...Awkward...

People used to (and some people still do) refer to B as H and Bb as B.

So essentially, it's ADGBEA, that's the top 5 strings of a regular six with a one fourth higher than high E (A) string, instead of the low E.
