This depends on size, style of music you want to play and tolerance for pain.
The Guitars I Talk About In This Video Are:
3/4 Size Student Nylon Stringed Guitar
Full Size Nylon Stringed Guitar (Classical Guitar)
Full Size Classical Guitar With Thin Neck
Acoustic Steel Strings (Dreadnaught) Guitar
Full Size Electric Guitar
3/4 (sometimes called 7/8) Electric Guitar
Guitar Student Size Chart
When a child is between a 3/4 and 4/4 guitar in terms of their age or height, I prefer they get the larger guitar. Children grow quickly. Why buy a smaller guitar if you’ll need to buy a larger one in a few months.
That said, even though a child can learn to play on a guitar that’s much too big for them, it will be much easier to get their fingers around the neck of the appropriate size guitar.
