Small guitars have been popular for several years, and are not just for students! Although they are perfect for younger and smaller players, they are also great for travel, people living in small spaces (micro lofts, anyone?), or anyone looking for a fun alternative to a full-sized guitar. Here are the best ones available:


Taylor Baby

What more could you want? A professional-quality guitar that plays and sounds great, at a great price! The Taylor Baby is a no-compromise instrument, it’s just smaller. Also available with a mahogany top, and with a built-in tuner and pickup for plugging in.

LXM Little Martin

This guitar is made from a unique high-pressure laminate material that is durable and sounds great. Even though it’s small, there are no compromises on quality and the sound and playability are wonderful!

Yamaha JR-1

Fantastic Yamaha quality at a great low price!

Fender MA-1

The legendary Fender name on a fun, affordable small-size guitar!
