For children under 12, one of the guitars we’ll recommend is a classical guitar from our Valencia range. Classical guitars have nylon strings which make it a lot easier to play for little fingers. Our Valencia guitar range comes in ¼ size, ½ size, ¾ size, and full.

You can also choose what colour you’d like, and whether you’d like to buy the guitar as a stand alone product or as part of a kit to include the guitar, guitar tuner, and gig bag.
