    Spanish guitar has nylon strings and hurts much less. The bridge tended to be wider though for small hands.

    If you think she's serious then get her something nice that isn't made of laminated wood.

    I'm sure the Stern forum would be much more helpful than us.

    Yamaha makes some decent inexpensive starter acoustic guitars.

    If she wants electric, a fender squire Strat will be good.

    FYI. No matter what you buy her, it will need to be properly "set up" by a guitar tech in order to play well. Even the most expensive guitars are nearly never perfect when they leave the music store. That usually costs around $75.

    If this is not a surprise gift for under the tree then I would suggest you take her to a place like Sam Ash, there they can let her try a few and see which one suits her.

    Cheap guitars that buzz and go out of tune every 5 minutes only cause people to never want to play them. It's a big toss up over getting a good enough guitar to avoid this and spending too much in case this is a phase she's going to get tired of.
