    3/4 Scale PRS

    If PRS made a 3/4 scale PRS, SE or Maryland-built, would you buy one?

    For your child? For yourself?

    If you mean a short scale bass with a 408 style bass pickup... then yes.

    Oooh... short scale bass could be way cool!

    And while I played a Mustang for many years, I am not sure I would go back to a short scale 6 string.

    Possibly a 3/4 classical. Shortscale bass sounds good too!

    Anyone ever see a 3/4 scale pickup?

    It seems as though 3/4 sclae guitars are typically reduced in length but the width at the nit and bridge remain the same - probably due to the increased cost of making bridges and pickups that are 75% of the original size. Not to mention the tonal impact of smaller pups.

    I would consider buying one for my 4 1/2 year old. However, it would also need to be able to be stepped on, thrown around, and otherwise mistreated by a 4 1/2 year old and be able to stand up to that abuse.

    This is my 6 year old daughter Maria playing my Traveler Speedster through a 100-watt Plexi. She doesn't play yet, but she loves making noise. I'd buy one for sure. Hopefully, it would be small enough to use as a travel guitar.

    I just tried to upload some video, but it didn't work. I guess I have to upload it to Youtube first.

    In the "quick reply" box, you'll see a little icon that looks like a film strip. Post the link there. You will have to host it on youtube or another site first though.

    I have been looking at 3/4 scale electric guitars for my now six year old daughter for a couple years and I have yet to find any that are even remotely a half decent instrument. I wish that PRS would make a SE (or a few) in a 3/4 scale length. When it comes time to buy her a guitar, I would much rather invest in a quality instrument for my girls (#2 is 1 year old so would be ready to step into said instrument when #1 is ready for a full size instrument) to be able to learn to play on that will sound good and play well and inspire confidence, than spend $100-200 on a piece of junk and another $500 in decent parts to attempt to upgrade it, only to still have it go out of tune every five seconds, still sound it came out of a gumball machine, and be so difficult to play well that it makes them want to quit playing after the first day.
