Thread Name: Good budget/student guitars
Subject: RE: Good budget/student guitars
I have a 3/4 size Ibanez that I carry when a full size guitar would be too cumbersome. It sounds pretty good and has at least as many frets as I ever use on my full size guitars. It seems like a good prospect for a child (or anyone with really small hands) to learn on.

For cheap guitars that sound reasonably decent (as student guitars), I might suggest a few models by Rogue and by Sigma that you can buy from Musicians Friend for $100 to $150.

I bought a couple of acoustic-electric Sigmas for $249 each, which I use as my "everyday" guitars (keeping one in my trunk most of the time and the other at my parents' home). They both sound pretty good and have pretty good action and would make good student guitars.
