Special Sized Guitars

Although the most common version modern Spanish Classical guitar is the 6 string 650 scale (nut to bridge bone) with 52 mm nut.

The modern guitar has many variations we are often asked for child sizes, long and short scale, guitar family (orchestral) guitars and guitars with more than six strings as well as electrification and customised guitars. 

Child Sizes - 1/2 , 3/4, 7/8

Often a child’s first guitar is an afterthought “maybe it’s a passing fancy” so it is a cheap plywood guitar that is hard to play for a child and sounds like rubber bands on cardboard so nothing like a guitar. This is approach often ensures that it is the child’s first and only guitar

We have been working with guitar teachers for many years now and bring in the Alhambra 1C especially for beginning guitarists. Not only is set up for a child this guitar play well and delivers good tone. Not to mention that as it is a quality Spanish made guitar with a solid Cedar top it also has good resale value.
