How To Buy Holiday Guitars For Kids
Guitars can be one of the best presents for the holidays
Nothing is more exciting than getting a new guitar
If your child is interested, it’s an awesome present!
Kids can begin learning guitar at age 7
Here are some important details on
how to buy a guitar, what to get, etc…
Electric Vs. Acoustic Guitars?
Either one is fine
If they are into AC/DC, Nirvana, etc.. Go with electric
If they’re into pop, softer rock or country – go with acoustic
If you get an acoustic get a steel string guitar – NOT nylon!
A great electric guitar is a Fender Squier Bullet Strat
it is a classic style guitar, has several color choices and plays and sounds great.
The cost between $120-150 – shop around
An important consideration is size:
Guitars come in a wide range of sizes
If your child is between 7-11,
a 3/4 size guitar like
the Yamaha JR1 or JR2 or
Ibanez 3/4 size will work best
If they are older, get a full sized,
but small bodied acoustic guitar such as a Yamaha FS800
(highly recommended and just under $200)
The brands I would recommend are:
Acoustics: Yamaha and Ibanez
Electrics: Fender/Squier, Epiphone
There are many cheap brands out there that
are lower quality.
The above brands will work best!
Once they have the guitar

Typical 1:1 guitar lessons don’t work
