    These shoes are small

    これとのくつわちさい。
    kore to no kutsu wa chisai

    Is that correct?
    I don't understand the (kore-to) part.

    I doubt if anybody else understands it either. I think it's wrong.

    OK, thanks.
    Then I would say this:
    Kore wa kutsu ga chisai desu.

    Is that correct?

    No because you are saying "this, the shoes are small."
    kutsu ga chiisai desu or kono kutsu ha chiisai desu would be better.
    The latter is preferred because it makes more sense (these shoes are small vs shoes are small).

    OK, got it.

    I posted something about needing help on info of a guitar, can you check a website in japanese on serial numbers for Fender Squier guitars. MY Japanese reading is not up to par.
    Here is the number:
    s/n ICS09019931

    Thanks

    How do I say this in Japanese?

    Enjoy the ride and adventure of playing your guitar?

    OK, I think I know this:
    Your あなたの
    guitar ギター
    adventure ぼうけん

    Literal translations wouldn't work well. バイクもギターも楽しんで is barely acceptable, but those kinds of greetings are not so mcommonly used in Japanese conversations in the first place.
