Hello good folks... I have been on a bit of a hunt lately. My son, who will be turning 9 in a month, has expressed a strong interest in wanting a bass guitar to learn on. He has tried a couple of my bass guitars, but they are way too large for him to effectively start playing and learning on. The other clincher.. he is left handed, and holds (or tries to hold) the bass as such. I have looked on Amazon and Ebay for basses, but I don't want to purchase anything til I am sure that the bass would be suitable for him to play. There are child sized basses, but I am not finding much in the lefty department, and there are 3/4 sized basses but I don't know if they are small enough (but I suppose he would grow into it eventually) but I don't want him to lose interest in wanting to learn because the guitar is too big... so I am hoping that maybe some of you have suggestions or a direction that I can look at .... My thanks in advance.
