Nephew's Mikro - How old to start?

I got to spend some time with my sister and her son (2 years old) this weekend. She wants me to teach him how to play guitar. I went looking for a suitable "real" small guitar and stumbled across the Mikro Series.

How is the Mikro Series? And, when should we start the kid off?

I think they're pretty good compared to other small scale guitars. As for age I think 4 would be good. My daughter plays my guitars like crazy and she's 5. She's getting a Mikro next month.

Well, this ain't Jedi training, so as long as the kid can hold it comfortably and work the fretboard--start now.
