Purchasing an Acoustic Guitar for a Child

My daughter is only seven years old and has been going to bluegrass festivals with me all of her life. She loves the music and has shown an interest in learning how to play the guitar. This made me extremely happy since I am a banjo player and her father is a fiddle player. I look forward to the day that we can all play music together. The first thing we need to do is find a place to buy beginners acoustic guitar. I thought about getting her a smaller guitar but was always told that kids should learn on full-size instruments. I think the reasoning behind this is that they may not adjust well when they are ready to move up to the full-size version.

I thought it would be best to do a bit of research to find the best fit for my daughter. I came across a website that has a buying guide for different levels of guitar players and decided to take a closer look at the beginner’s guide. The guide rated guitars on different factors relevant to the player just starting out. Their number one rated guitar was a Fender guitar which didn’t surprise me that much. I’ve always heard good things about this company and its instruments. This particular guitar comes with everything needed to start playing including picks, strap, tuner, and strings. It all sounded pretty good to me and my husband.

The website we were visiting only reviews and provides buying guides. They do not offer instruments for sale but they do provide links where your chosen instrument can be purchased. We thought it would be a good idea to shop around and to even see if we could find this particular guitar locally. We like to show support for our local music stores. Maybe if they don’t have it in stock they can order it for us.
