Costco Wasburn?
« on: February 23, 2013, 12:05:29 PM »
Hi

My son is 8 and we are want to put him in lessons.
Costco have a Washburn for a good beginner price(imo)

Can anyone tell me if this would be the right size for an 8.5 year old? 
They describe it as a "mini jumbo"

Thanx!

Welcome to the forum.  For an 8 year old that is going to be a very big guitar to deal with.  Will make learning a bit harder.  Consider something like this.
