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.

Here are the reasons why this guitar is great:

 We use sustainable timbers on all of our beginners to intermediate guitars. The neck and bridge of the CL44 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.

 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.

So far so good

Purchased the CL44 (factory second) after a quick discussion with some of the helpful staff 3 days ago and it was delivered this morning! Ran my eye over the guitar and can't find where the cosmetic damage is... for $115 definitely can't complain, as a beginner im looking forward to progressing to a point when I can play confidently and upgrade to whatever guitar I choose. For now though the sound this guitar produces is fine! Bring on the progression!!!

Amazing Value

By: on 2 July 2021
I bought this guitar for my mother who is learning to play and I cannot believe how it is they can provide such an exceptional product delivered to your door for the money. You'd think at best the guitar itself is great value with some throw-away add ons but no. The built-in illuminated tuner works, the strings are good with second pack thrown in, a strap (the guitar has strap buttons) and a durable, well made padded soft case. I've since looked at the entire guitar range out of interest and I've decided to get myself a little TC59 and my son is considering a grungemaster..Great job guys, don't change!
