My girl is interested in learning some basic guitar but my acoustic is just too large for her. Is there a good brand thats maybe 10-20% smaller yet will give a good sound?

i guess a small guitar wont sound as cool as a stardard size one, right?

Depends on what kinda tone you want. Wont be as loud though.

IF Angus Young can play, than she can play too though XD

luna makes nice smaller guitars, their big ones are probably okay too, but the only one ive played was a smaller one and it was nice

get her a parlor "000" sized guitar. They're slightly smaller than a regular dreadnaught acoustic.

Get her a classical or she'll freak out at the pain in her fingers of trying to learn a steel-string. Might put her off for life! Getting used to a classical before going onto steel strings is good advice for any beginner. She'll certainly learn better technique that is usually dismal in acoustic players.

How small is she?! I'm a small girl, and I play a dreadnought just fine.


So does my wife. 5ft.10" though.

Same here. I would say she probably can get used to the full size- it's probably just awkward for her now since she has no experience playing but if not just go to guitar center or wherever and ask to see acoustics that are not full size and I'm sure she'll find one that she feels comfortable with. Don't buy her one without having her test it out first.

I'd say this.

I'm 5ft4 and I'm uncomfortable with a dreadnought. I find they're too bulky and I generally just don't like the sound.
A 000 sized guitar will be much more comfortable for her. The body is smaller but also shaped differently.
