I have a nephew who is VERY musical he is 4 years old and will start violin lessons soon. However, what he really wants is to play an electric guitar and me and my wife want to give it to him (we also gave him the violin)

Does someone know where to get an electric guitar for children, a real one, not a toy.

I saw a tiny Epiphone at Guitar Center. It was the smallest electric I've ever seen.

I've found them, there are two, the PeeWee and VeeWee guitars, they look prety cool and are $129 in Music.123

This might still be a bit big for a 4 year old (depending on his size), but I bought a Squire Mini Strat for my grandson (age 7 at the time). I got it a couple of weeks before his birthday so I had time to set it up and play around with it - I liked it and he loves it. I got it at Musician's Friend.

Just keep in mind, neither the Pee Wee or the Vee Wee hold standard tunning very well. My five year old daughter had a lot of fun playing with the Squire Mini Strat at a GC.

Rondomusic.net sells a SX "short scale" strat, that is probably pretty comparable to the squire strat junior, for $80+shipping.
