Hi everyone im going to buy a guitar for my wee nephew he will be 3 in janurary.

Any advice on what i should get him acoustic, electric and if its acoustic should i get him the non metal string one? i dont wana spend much to be honest for a start i havent got it haha and hes a crazy wee man so the guitar might end up being used for beating anything from his granny to the front door.

Thanks in advance for any advice its much appreciated.

Three is way too young so a cheap disney mickey mouse guitar would work.

maybe a guitar isn't a good idea. he could accidentally break a string and injure himself.

I don't necessarily agree that 3 is too young, this guy set out a programme for child prodogies.

Your Nephew would need a 1/4 or 1/2 size guitar budmonster but I can understand why you want a cheaper one because it could get a fair bit of abuse, have a look at these,.

Another option is guitar hero, if he's got a ps2 this is great fun, I put the basic one on as it's the cheapest but there is also guitar hero II and guitar hero III for xbox360.

Good luck with whatever you choose budmonster and have a good Christmas.:smilinguitar:

I was thinking about getting my son a guitar too, but was worried about him being too young for a guitar...

Thanks for the link to the suzuki method. I wont be able to send him for tuition, not very many teachers for 3 year olds over here, but I will be able to use the info on the site to teach my son how to play... without alienating him form music altogether... Maybe I will learn a couple of things while I am at it...
