We talked about nylon string guitars being great for large hands due to the traditional wider neck. Nylon string guitars are also great for young hands. The nylon strings are much softer than steel strings and can be much easier on the finger tips. Young students often complain of the steel strings hurting their finer tips. Actually a beginner at any age can find steel strings tough on their left hand fingers.
Although the traditional classical guitar neck might be too wide for small hands their are many smaller, children sized guitars available. There are also full size guitars but with slim necks available. These are great for adults who like the feel of a smaller neck but want the sound or feel of nylon strings.
Guitar Center, Sam Ash, and Musician’s Friend websites all have a pretty sizable list of nylon string guitars for anyone interested to check out.
