A Parlor sized guitar is ideal if you find regular dreadnought acoustics too big for your hands/body. Parlor and other smaller bodied guitars might be much more comfortable for you - especially for younger players 'growing in' to their guitars.

Both the body and neck are slightly smaller that make this Washburn both comfortable and practical for some individuals.


We have a selection of 1/2 and 3/4 sized guitars that are perfect for young children wanting to learn how to play guitar.

Both electric and acoustic guitars are available - check out our selection here.
