This wiki has been updated 10 times since it was first published in March of 2018. Most adult guitars are way too big to fit comfortably in the hands of children, but teaching your young ones an instrument from an early age can pay huge dividends in the years to come. The guitars for kids on our list come in slightly smaller sizes, allowing new players to hold and manipulate them with much greater ease. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best guitar for kids on Amazon.

Daniel Imperiale holds a bachelor’s degree in writing, and proudly fled his graduate program in poetry to pursue a quiet life at a remote Alaskan fishery. After returning to the contiguous states, he took up a position as an editor and photographer of the prestigious geek culture magazine “Unwinnable” before turning his attention to the field of health and wellness. In recent years, he has worked extensively in film and music production, making him something of a know-it-all when it comes to camera equipment, musical instruments, recording devices, and other audio-visual hardware. Daniel’s recent obsessions include horology (making him a pro when it comes to all things timekeeping) and Uranium mining and enrichment (which hasn’t proven useful just yet).
