Find a guitar that looks right and feels right for you, at a price you can afford. If you are serious about playing the guitar then it is a good idea to get something decent that will last a lifetime rather than something cheap to start with then having to get something better at a later stage.
Although in saying this, kids may outgrow a 3/4 sized guitar after the age of 12+ so it may not be necessary to get something decent until they are ready for a full sized guitar.
Good guitars will stay in tune, sound better and be easier and more enjoyable to play!
You can purchase a guitar second hand, from a local music shop, or I recommend ordering a new guitar online from Artist Guitars
