3/4 57cm Kid's guitar wanted Zurich

Our son will start guitar lessons after the holidays, does anyone have one lying around they want to sell? Any Guitar buying tips or what to avoid would be appreciated.

Have you asked the teacher for their advice?

Yes, we went for a test and measure. They recommend renting but at 30/40 a month it makes more sense to buy and sell if it doesn't work out.

We rented the smaller sizes for our son and there is usually an option to buy once you've paid the equivalent cost in rental.

We bought the full size one he's using now but it's a reconditioned second hand one and is much cheaper than a spanking new one. Most of the music shops seem to do this.

Re: 3/4 57cm Kid's guitar wanted Zurich

If you find yourself in Rapperswil one day, stop by Rappimusig near the castle steps:

http://www.rappimusig.ch/index.php?gitarren

They have a selection of children's guitars, you could try out several. According to their website they will also rent children's guitars for CHF 30/month, min contract 6 months. Children's guitars are not expensive, so whether renting makes sense or not is a question to be looked into.


My only 5Rp: My first guitar was a steel string. Ouch! Since I was a rank beginner (with, as it turned out, no talent whatsoever) the difference in sound between steel and nylon meant nothing at this point. Go with what feels best to your child. Learning should be easy and practicing should be fun.

(Ultimately the choice of nylon or steel strings boils down to your musical preference.)

Hope your young'un enjoys his guitar!
