About Kids Guitars & 3/4 Sized Electrics

If you are looking for an electric guitar designed with younger players in mind, we have a great choice of kids guitars such as our 3/4 sized electrics to choose from. These compact versions are a great alternative to full size models and can be much easier for new and smaller players to get used to. All of our 3/4 sized electric guitars feature guitar pickups, including passive pickups or some of our models feature humbucker pickups.

We have 3/4 sized electric guitars available from Squier, Jackson, EastCoast, Ibanez and Epiphone. These are some of the best brands in the industry and they have specifically designed these guitars with the younger player in mind. From the iconic Strat and Les Paul designs to the heavy metal inspired Jackson models with their bright neon colours, there is plenty of choice.

If you aren't sure which 3/4 sized electric guitar is best for your child, we are on hand to offer advice. Whether in-store or online, we'll be happy to help get their electric guitar journey started.

Frequently Asked Questions about Kids Guitars & 3/4 Sized Electrics

Question: What size guitar is good for kids?
As a very general rule, ¾ size electric guitars are ideal for children between the ages of 7 to 10. It’s less to do with age than with height, so tall children will be able to progress to full size instruments quicker than smaller children. The important thing is being able to reach the first frets comfortably.
Question: When will my child need a full size guitar?
Your child will most likely be tall enough for a full size guitar at the age of around 10 or 11. This is not a hard and fast rule but instead is a rough guide that depends upon the height of each child.
Question: Are 3/4 sized electric guitars good for adults?
The most important thing about any guitar is that you want to play it. You might want to play a guitar for the look, the comfort or the sound. ¾ guitars are definitely comfortable but often not of the highest quality because they are designed only with young children in mind. The Fender Mustang is a famous example of a guitar that was introduced as a short scale student guitar but became hugely popular among adults, so they are available at a higher quality than most ¾ size electric guitars.
Question: How big are 3/4 sized guitars?
The way we measure guitars is by measuring the scale length. The scale length is the playable length of string. We do this rather than measuring the total length because electric guitars come in all different shapes and sizes which does not necessarily affect how big it feels to play. The scale length for a ¾ size electric guitar is often around 23”.
