Getting a Guitar
"Choosing a beginner guitar can be tricky, since the chances are you don't know a whole lot about guitars to begin with. Once that choice has been made, you're going to need to decide on a budget for your purchase. Avoid buying an ultra-cheap instrument - it will not only make learning guitar more difficult, but will have little re-sale value." about.com
If you are signing up a child for Guitar lessons, consider buying a classical guitar with nylon strings and a smaller body 1/2 or 3/4 size. The nylon strings will be easier to play because it won't be as hard on your fingers. I began playing guitar at age 8 on a tiny nylon guitar and then when I got older and my fingers developed callouses, I purchased a steel string guitar. I currently play a Taylor 712ce and a Taylor GS Mini. Taylor Guitars make incredible instruments and they baby Taylors that is great for traveling or for kids. ~ Susie
