Will this version of the ChordBuddy fit my guitar?
Measure across the neck at the nut (the white bar between the frets
and the tuning pegs), it should be around 1 3/4″ (1 ½” minimum and 1
7/8” maximum) and from the nut to the 3rd fret should be approximately
4″ChordBuddy works with both left and right handed guitars! If you have a
classical guitar (any guitar with a neck width of more than 1 7/8″)
you’ll need to make sure to select “Classical” from the drop down. The
“right” and “left” handed ChordBuddy will work with full size, 3/4 size
and 5/8 size guitars.
Don’t know if you need left or right? If you strum with your right
hand and the biggest string is on the top; it is a right handed guitar.
If you strum with your left hand and the biggest string is on the top;
it is a left handed guitar.
ChordBuddy will not work on half-sized (or any guitar with a neck
width of less than 1 1/2″) (children’s) guitars. You can check for sure
by making two measurements. Measure across the neck at the nut, it
should be around 1 3/4″ (1 ½” minimum and 1 7/8” maximum) and from the
nut to the 3rd fret should be approximately 4″. If these two
measurements are as noted, the ChordBuddy should work just fine. If the
neck of the guitar is too wide, it is probably a classical guitar, and
you would order the “classical” ChordBuddy. We do not have a ChordBuddy
for a left handed classical guitar. Classicals normally have a mixture
of nylon and steel strings. ChordBuddy will only work on a six string
