1. I'm past six foot, I have fairly big hands. I have a 3/4 size acoustic guitar. My fingers just fit on the frets, and I can play it fine, but, would I be better off with a full size guitar?

2. After I've got used to playing a 3/4 size guitar fretboard will I find it difficult to play on a full sized guitar fretboard?

I've got a 3/4 Lil martin and a Dean V-wing Dove. What you notice the most is the body. The dean is huge to me by comparison. The neck isn't as noticable but you do get the feeling that everything is "right there" when playing the smaller guitar, but it really isn't much of a hinderance. What you are going to like is the projection of the larger guitar. Better tone and it really reaches out there over the smaller guitar. The 3/4 guitar has it's place (much better then a backpack guitar), but in the end a full size is just richer and and more satisfying to play.

You might be better off with a full sized guitar. After playing a larger fretboard, you will probably enjoy the extra space. I, for one, have short and stubby sausage-like fingers, but I love big necks, such as the Seagull neck. Wider necks give me more room to just get all up in there. The more rounded neck shape also feels more comfortable to me.

It depends on what you want to do with it. 3/4 size are great for camping, traveling, etc. If you want to be heard in an all-acoustic jam, a full size dreadnought would be better (it's louder).

Just depends on your personal preference. I would expect that you would prefer a full-size guitar, but there's no way to know for sure. You need to get out and play some and then decide!
