Artist DCA100CEQ Solid Top Dreadnought Acoustic Electric Guitar
The DCA100CEQ has a Solid Cedar Top and Ash(laminated) back and sides with a beautiful satin finish. It's a standard dreadnought sized guitar with cut-away.
The Cedar top gives it a warm balanced sound that doesn't get too harsh, as with all of our solid top range it includes real bone nut & saddle for the ultimate in tone transfer. The hardness of the bone gives the string a solid basis to vibrate against plastic nuts are often very soft and this can be a cause of tone loss.
The Fishman Presys pre-amp with built-in chromatic tuner means that you can plug this guitar in for live performance or recording.

Excellent guitarI have been messing around with guitars for 60 years (yeah, I'm an old bloke) but am far from being an expert on guitars or a good player. This is my sixth guitar and my first impression in unpacking it was how well and securely it had been packed to avoid damage. I have waited two weeks before submitting this review because it just seemed too good to be true - there must be something wrong with it that I could criticize - but not so. I love it and it is a pleasure to pick up and play. The finish (matt-satin) is different to all the other guitars I have had which have been a traditional high gloss, but it looks really good and I certainly would not want to have it in high gloss. The woodwork is beautiful and the workmanship is perfect. The volume and the tone is great, even without the amplifier. The tuning knobs are very good quality and unless it is my imagination there seems to be a high ratio (or is it low?) in the winding gear which means you can turn the knob quite a bit to move the tuning just a touch - making for easy, very fine tuning. I only thing I have needed to keep in mind (and I have learned this by experience) is not to forget to turn off the inbuilt tuning device or having to often replace the 9 volt battery may become quite expensive. An expert in guitars may have a different opinion but as an amateur I am very impressed and glad I bought it. Well done, Artist Guitars, on an excellent guitar at a most reasonable price.

We are happy to hear that you love the guitar and that you are enjoying it. Thank you so much for leaving the guitar a review.
Amazing value and sounds even betterOrdered Thursday arrived Monday. Best thing about this was I kept checking aus post app to see when they would process the order and went to check this morning and it was already at the post office. Now to the actual guitar. I opened the box before I got home and checked the body in direct sunlight for about twenty minutes and could not find anything wrong with it. First thing I did notice was how beautiful this guitar looks. I own a Yamaha and this felt better in my hands. Great weight to it without being too heavy. I've been playing it now for about two hours trying to find a fault with it and I can't. All I will say is give Artist guitars a go and if you don't feel how I do then you can return it. This is the second guitar I have purchased from them the first being a electric and I now have my eyes on one of the full solid wood models as I am that impressed. Pre amp works fine and man this cedar top sounds warm and loud without being plugged in. 11 out of 5 stars from me.

Thank you so much for taking the time to share this feedback. We really appreciate the support!
They only thing wrong with this guitar ...Is that I purchased before the sale. This is my second artist, the first being from the beginners range for a left hand model [due to an injury]. I have never owned a quality acoustic, but have played a Maton for many hours as well as Ibanez, Yamaha etc, and having played my lefty for nearly 3 years I thought it was time to get an upgrade. Am I surprised at the quality? No. Am I surprised at the tone? No. Am I surprised at the touch, feel, smoothness ... hellz No. I am however, surprised and pleased at how much further this guitar is beyond my expectations of what I knew was going to be a great product. Name brands be damned - My 2 Artist acoustics sit proudly beside my MIA CBS Fender. Yes i am disappointed I purchased before the sale, but stuff the bucks lost, I love this baby, my number 2, my Artist.
Great GuitarI have played guitar for a long time and own 5 acoustics and 3 electrics , Fender,Maton,Ibanez,Epiphone,Fernandes and 1 I built out of parts from 3 other guitars. I was hesitant about purchasing a guitar online without playing it first.When it arrived it was better than I expected , well made, good finish and setup. After a tune I was amazed that it sounded so good for a guitar at this price. The Cedar top gives it a warm tone that is different than a Spruce top,which is what I was looking for . Does not have the sustain and depth of my Maton, but that is all solid wood and cost 6 or 7 times the price. This was my first purchase from Artist , I have just ordered a TC 59 electric + tweed case, I hope its as good. Les - QLD
