"Luna guitars are sometimes made for smaller hands. They're usually pretty well-made."

"Is your main concern nut width, scale length, neck profile, or all 3? With few exceptions, Seagulls have 1.8" nuts, which is on the wider side... In the Godin line, Simon & Patrick, Norman, and Art & Lutherie all have a 1.72" nut,…"

Looking for info on a guitar for a person with small hands

I'm looking for a full bodied sound from a guitar that a small handed man can play.  I have looked at the possibility of a Seagull, a Takamine or a couple of others.  I have an Ovation now but looking for something that will mellow with age.  Anyone have any suggestions?  I don't have a large budget to work with.  I also would like for it to be and A/E.  Have an Ovation Idea that I would also be willing to trade.  Not a refurb.See More

"I love mine but because of the times I have it for sale.  It's my newest and my other is an Elite LX that I've had for years so the newest has to go.  the recording and instruction is very easy and it has a built in tuner."

"Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)

By far the most active brand-dedicated group in the AGM online community!!  For those who own, play and love their Seagull Guitars ... (or any other Godin acoustic) wonderful, top-quality instruments made in Canada, Seagulls (as well as Godin, Simon & Patrick, Norman, Art & Lutherie, La Patrie, and Richmond) are ideal choices for anyone who wants a first-rate guitar for a reasonable…See More

Hi James ... thanks for join g the Seagull group.  I saw your message in my e-mail, but didn't see if actually show up anywhere on the forum itself.  Anyway, one of the hallmarks of Seagull guitars is that most of them feature a 1.8 inch wide fingerboard which is about the widest available for a 6-string acoustic. It's probably about as wide as your 12-string.   I personally love this feature and it is a selling point to a lot of Seagull purchasers, but it's not for everybody.  That's why Seagull has a narrower "slim" version available in 2-3 models that is a 1.72 inch wide fingerboard.  The "MJ" or mini-jumbo models are a 1.72 inch in the Entourage line and 1.8 inch otherwise.  You can get the "slim" neck in the S-6 Original model and the Coastline S-6 CW GT model along with all of the previously mentioned Entourage Rustic models.
