Thread Name: guitars for women
Subject: guitars for women
I'm thinking of getting a new guitar (electro-acoustic). Budget limited sub £300. I've played a big acoustic Aria for the past 15 years, bought without advice and I've always had a love/hate relationship with it - it's never been the easiest thing to play. I'd like something smaller both in looks and in ease to play for small hands.

I play a Daisy Rock Heartbreaker electric which is great because it is designed for women - it has a narrower neck, but I don't like the design of their electro-acoustics. I've also used a Dean Playmate which is a great sounding travel/child's guitar, but can't cope with a capo about second fret due to its short scale. Any ideas or advice greatly welcomed.
