Awesome guitar!!!

By: on 12 June 2023
The pictures don't do this guitar justice. The guitar looks stunning in person and has a beautiful matt finish. It sounds awesome and is very resonant. I own another known brand name solid top guitar but this Artist guitar sounds so much better. This is a no-brainer, one would struggle to buy a similar spec'd used guitar for this price, this is brand new.

Amazing acoustic full stop

Having owned this guitar for over a year now I can say it is a quality piece of kit and sounds amazing. Slapped on a 5 dollar scratch guard from Ebay to personalise it a bit, overall very happy with all products I've purchased from Artist guitars.

Perfect Gift

Bought as a birthday present for another budding new guitarist in the family. Beautifully finished, very playable out of the box, and great tone plugged in or not. Another great value instrument from Artist Guitars, and their delivery service is second to none. Thanks again guys.

Holy crap what a guitar. Got the factory second one and Leo must be super strict cause the little scuff I see is the only flaw and almost matches the top anyway. Buy one as soon as possible if factory second is available still you CANNOT beat $169 for this guitar!! Tuner works perfect went straight in to drop C# outta the box and tuner had no problems finding what I needed. Amazing guitar get one. Drooling for these 2022 releases to arrive!!!

Accoustic, Tobacco Sunburst.

I purchased this guitar a month ago. I really love it. The neck has a very comfortable feel. The solid top gives a great sound. Like all guitars the truss rod needed tightening a quarter of a turn. (Very minor adjustment). This guitar is worth every cent in my opinion. I really like the feel of the neck a lot. It's "just right". Well done Artist guitars. What a fantastic instrument at a very affordable price.
