Factory 2nd Artist AB1 41 inch Natural Steel String Acoustic Guitar
About Artist Guitars Factory Seconds
This is a factory second product which means it didn't pass our Quality Control test. It could be due to minor scratches, small marks, a slight discolouration of the wood, the paint could be a different colour or some other minor cosmetic issues. Each guitar will usually only have one of these issues. They play and function perfectly and sound the same as the guitars that passed quality control. Unfortunately, we can't show pictures of individual guitars.
We have a very strict Quality Control and if the guitars were damaged significantly or the sound of the guitar was changed they would not have become a factory second (we have 3 different grades for damaged products depending on how damaged an item is). This is a great buy and just like all of our products it also comes with 100-days free returns and a full 3-year warranty.
Not All Acoustic Guitars Are The Same!
This guitar is designed with the beginner guitarist in mind. Imagine how much quicker you will learn with a good quality guitar. With a great sound to inspire you and great design to make it easy to play, you'll breeze through the first stages of your playing. You'll be playing your first song and impressing your friends in no time!
Here are the reasons why:
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 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.
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.
Die-cast Machine Heads - This means your guitar will tune quicker, be more stable and stay in tune longer.

Perfect for a Beginner!By: Calum Pope on 2 July 2020This is my first acoustic after taking up playing in December and I am loving this guitar so far. Really easy to use and great sound. Can't even tell it's a factory 2nd!
Amazing valueBy: Raymond Martin on 19 March 2020For the price, I was expecting a guitar that was basically playable and with decent intonation. This not only ticked those boxes, it's actually a pleasant sounding dreadnought. 5 stars
