Dare to Think!


Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

The size guitar you choose for your child is, perhaps, the most crucial aspect affecting the child’s ability to actually play the guitar. A guitar that is too large will be impossible to play, while a guitar that is too small will teach your child to play incorrectly, making it difficult for him or her to transfer to a standard size guitar upon reaching adulthood.

  • In general, a 4 to 6 year old child, ranging in height from 3’3″ to 3’9″ (99 cm to 114 cm), needs a guitar that is 1/4 of the standard size.
  • A 5 to 8 year old child, ranging in height from 3’10” to 4’5″ (117 cm to 135 cm), needs a guitar that is 1/2 the full size.
  • Children between the ages of 8 and 11 years old, ranging in height from 4’6″ to 4’11” (137 cm to 150 cm) need a 3/4 size guitar.
  • Children ages 11 and up who are at least 5′ (152 cm) tall can have a standard, full-size guitar.
