We are proud to offer you a series of online lessons designed specifically for beginning guitar students. This series of lessons was designed inhouse, to give you the best start to your musical career. This is what this lesson pack is all about - the stuff that nobody really tells you at the start of your guitar playing journey. Issues like holding the guitar, using a plectrum and some simple exercises to start you off.

So whether you're 7 or 70, take some time to check out the lesson pack and most importantly - be patient and have fun! Note that you would need to be logged into your Artist Guitar's account and you would have to subscribe to our Newsletter first to receive the link to the lesson program. You can UNSUBSCRIBE as soon as you get the link.

Here are the reasons why this guitar is great:

 It has Steel Strings for a great sound. Watch the video above and have a listen to the audio clip to hear how it sounds.  Most beginner guitars have nylon strings but unless you want to play classical or Spanish music, you may be disappointed. (If you do prefer the sound of a classical/Spanish style guitar we have a range available in our store).

 It has a Low String Action (all our guitars are set-up at the factory for the optimum beginner playing level). String action is the measurement from the top of the 12th fret to the bottom of the string. This is very important because a guitar with a high action is hard to play, a guitar with too low an action will buzz and sound bad. Artist Guitars are set up at the factory for the optimum level for a beginner.

 It has a Built-in Pickup with EQ & Tuner so if you want to play through an amp or PA system, or even record, it's easy to connect your guitar up for a great sound.

 A Truss Rod that allows you to correct for the effects of weather on the guitar help keep the neck straight and the action height the neck can be adjusted.

 Comes included with a Bag to protect your guitar, Strap and Built-In Tuner - A tuner for a beginner is vital.  A guitar needs to be tuned every time you play. As ours is built into the guitar its always in the right place. It's extremely simple to use so you will be using it correctly in no time at all.

 Die-cast Machine Heads - This means your guitar will tune quicker, be more stable and stay in tune longer

 Recommended by some of Australia's top guitar teachers.

 We include a range of Support Materials including how to tune, how to read tab, basic chord shapes and much more.

Beginners 12 string

By: on 4 January 2022
I played a 6 string as an adolescent and when I saw the opportunity to try a 12 string (at an advanced age) I grabbed it -the holy grail. The entire package is fantastic. But the reviews sold me. I was looking at Fender etc (for the name I knew and lusted after as that adolescent) but was taken by the comments by experienced users. I am stoked - probably about to have a stroke - but it'll be worth it. Thanks Artists!!

Nice Sounding Beginners 12 String

By: on 29 November 2021
I bought this guitar as an ex-display. The guitar itself is generally well made and sounds great for a "beginners" guitar. It's actually better than a beginners guitar and sounds great. However being hung up for however long it was, there was a few issues with the guitar. Like most guitars, over time the freboard has shrunk slightly leaving the fret ends sharp. For me this was easily fixed. However the bridge also dried out and split between the retaining pins. Although Artist were awesome and we came to an agreement on repairs. I'd definitely recommend putting some fretboard oil on the bridge as well as the fretboard with these guitars with change strings. From new, I wouldn't expect any of these issues though and the guitar sounds great as a good 12 string should. Not boxy like some of the other budget guitars I've played.

Drop 'Beginner' from the name - This guitar is ide

I have picked up a few 12 strings over the years, from cheap to expensive. This one is streets ahead of the cheap ones and well on a par with those costing 5-10 times as much. The action, tone, and intonation are superb. It stays in tune too. If I was to level any criticism it would be that the machine heads are a little stiff, but it is not a big issue.

Acoustic 12 string

By: on 7 February 2019
I have been looking for a good but inexpensive 12 string acoustic guitar for some time as it was the only guitar I did not have. I owned one when I was a teenager but sold it. Been playing on and off for 50 years and now spend all my time amusing myself playing all my 20 or so instruments. Found it with this one. Easy enough to play (won't be playing too many tunes on it) and has a great sound.
