Factory 2nd Artist CB4 Full Size 39 Inch Classical Nylon String 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 Classical Guitars Are The Same!
This is an ideal guitar for those wanting a good quality beginner guitar, but without the additional accessories that we normally offer with our beginner guitars. The nylon strings are easy on beginner's hands and it's 4/4 (Full) size will suit children and adults from around 13 years and up. If you're looking for a smaller version look at our 3/4 or 1/2 size range.
With a great sound to inspire you and a design specific to beginners, you'll breeze through the first stages of your playing.
Here are the reasons why:
We use quality Eco-Rosewood Fingerboard and Bridge. Most guitars of this price range use low-grade maple for the neck and paint it black to make it look like eco-rosewood. Eventually, this will wear down and the black colour will fade away. If you look closely at our CL34 you should be able to see the grain - the eco-rosewood looks brown, not black
It has a Practical 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. You will struggle to find a guitar at this low price with a truss rod.

BeautifulBy: David on 14 December 2018This guitar is a Factory Second BUT I can't find anything wrong with it at all. She plays beautifully and looks superb. If this is called a Factory Second then it speaks volumes for Artist Guitars quality control and for the quality of the Factory Firsts. :)
