As an addition to buying your new guitar, we are proud to offer you a series of online lessons designed specifically for beginning guitar students. This series of lessons is designed and presented by our inhouse guitar teacher John Holland. John has over 35 years of teaching experience from beginner to advanced and absolutely believes that the basic fundamentals of this great instrument form an extremely useful base for all practising guitarists.
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!
Here are the reasons why:
We use sustainable timbers on all of our beginner to intermediate guitars. The neck and bridge of the CL12 are constructed from a composite rosewood timber substitute known as eco-rosewood.
The guitar has been set-up at the factory for optimum beginner playing level. We call this Practical string action. String action is the height of the string to the fretboard. This is very important because a guitar with a high action is hard to play, while a guitar with too low an action will buzz unnecessarily 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.
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. This tuner is extremely simple to use and because it's built into the guitar, you'll never lose it.

ExcellentBy: Brett on 19 September 2019Bought this as a 1st guitar for our grandaughter. Great for a young beginer, & the fact that it has an in built tuner, saves a lot of unnessasary hassles. Just worth every cent. Service was outstanding too!
Great beginner's guitar for kidsBy: Paul on 6 September 2019I've been playing guitars for 30+ years and I bought this guitar for my 6yr old son. The nylon strings and 1/2 size (as recommended) are perfect! The built-in tuner is very handy too. He's already learned his first riff! I highly recommend this guitar for young beginners. Delivery was next-day (Sydney Metro) and delivered on time.
Love itBy: Nitin on 10 June 2019Bought this guitar for my daughter who loves it. This guitar is of very good quality. Very reasonably priced.
AmazedBy: Georgina on 10 January 2019Blown away by this beautiful little guitar. I can't believe what a lovely sound is has and how nice it feels for such a low price. Perfect for my little son starting out. Thank you so much!
Great Product and great serviceBy: Muyo on 19 September 2018I was shopping for a good quality guitar, but cheaper at the same time and I almost bought from Amazon. After a quick Google search, I stumbled upon this website and a gentleman by the name of Jason was on hand for a chat. I asked him all sorts of questions and I was impressed by his knowledge, professionalism and patience. I immediately concluded he was not just trying to get me to buy from them as he never pushed me or anything. Man I'm glad I bought from these guys. I was very impressed at the fast shipping; the quality of the products and the professionalism of the packaging... very very good. The day later I came back on the website to check for how to afix the strap and what the purpose of the Allen key was. I was attended to by a gentleman by the name of Welvin. He was very good and helpful and it happens that they are brothers with Jason. If you are shopping for a guitar, look no further than these guys. I will highly recommend them to family and friends. 5 starts for sure! (Product, quality, price, service)
GreatBy: Liam on 13 September 2018This company is just so fast to ship and there products are fantastic for the price.
1/2 size guitarBy: Simon BRADLEY on 23 July 2018Bought this for my 7 year old son as his first guitar. Perfect size, nice build & nice to play. Great product & support from Artists Guitars. Highly recommend Artist Guitars!
Excellent qualityBy: Chris on 23 June 2018This guitar is a little heavier and more solid than most kids guitars, I would expect it to last long past it’s original owner’s needs! It sound good so far, looks great and the case is sturdy. Buy it!
Great beginner for a beginnerBy: Mark on 9 February 2018I've been researching for a number of beginner guitars for my daughter as she wanted to learn how to play one. I've checked out a few models with their particular features and many seem to creep over my budget of $100. I was lucky to stumble on this guitar and at first, glance was not too sure of the quality when reviewing online. Once I've ordered it and was delivered, I was pretty impressed with the built, features and added value such as a bag and built-in tuner. I am extremely please with the guitar and highly recommend it to parents looking for value for money for their kids to learn a new instrument.
