Guitars for Children.
My students have been playing Strunal guitars since 2001. I have been selling them to Suzuki teachers and other guitar teachers throughout the country since 2003 (871 guitars sold to date). They have good intonation
and are very playable little guitars. Scaled to the
size of children's fingers these Strunal Guitars have
been designed according to ergonomically correct dimensions
to suit the youngest students. The 1/4 size guitar
suits even the smallest child. These size-appropriate
instruments make the teacher's job much easier. I have been including the guitars for free when a student sign up for a 16 lesson package.
Two models to choose from: the 4855 series Student Concert Guitar offers great sound with a solid cedar top and the 4655 Series offers a great entry level guitar at a modest price.
