Not All Classical Guitars Are The Same!

A typical classical has quite a wide neck, great for classical but not great for modern music.This model has a slimmer neck which is more suited to modern music.

This is an ideal guitar for beginners. Its nylon strings are easy on beginner hands and its 4/4 size (full size) suits adults and larger players (if you're looking for a smaller version look at our 3/4 and 1/2 range). This guitar features a slim neck so is suitable for people with smaller hands.  

With a great sound to inspire you and a design and set up specific to beginners, you'll breeze through the first stages of your playing.

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 this guitar is great:

   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 rosewood.  Eventually, this will wear down and the black will colour will fade away. If you look closely at our CL44S you should be able to see the grain - the rosewood looks brown, not black

  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.  You will struggle to find a guitar at this 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 so you will be using it correctly in no time at all.

  Recommended by some of Australia's top guitar teachers.

By: Dave on 18 June 2020
Bought this for my best friend on her 40th bday. She loves it. Good entry guitar. Well built. Slightly slimmer neck to make beginners hands easing into the fretboard. Built in tuner: excellent bonus. Extremely good value for money! I don't think anyone in Sydney can't beat it. Artists brings well built guitar for beginners and intermediate players at a highly competitive prices. Bought this one directly at their shop and was impressed about their service.

This guitar was all I expected it to be and was a perfect match for the Artist CL24SPKAM Half Size Classical Guitar Pack I purchased for my young Grandson recently. Artist guitars and products do not disappoint. Thanks for great products and great service.

I am amazed how good this Guitar is for the price...….The ease is brings to playing because of the 'slim neck' is so comfortable with the fret hand....I am totally satisfied and recommend for any guitarist, whether beginner or seasoned player.....I am an 'older age' player so I need an instrument that is easier and comfortable to play......thank you Artist Guitars.

A surprising package

By: Alan on 21 June 2018
I'm not a "classical" guitarist, so purists should probably ignore this review. I'm instead writing from the perspective of an experienced acoustic-electric guitarist who bought this to experiment with a "nylon string" sound before deciding whether to outlay bigger bucks. Because it was just dipping my toe in the water, so to speak, I didn't want to spend much, so the pricing of this guitar seemed about right ..... In short, I was pleasantly surprised. To be frank, I''m not sure how AG does it at this price level. The guitar is nicely finished, action is acceptable, intonation (while not 100% exact) is near enough to sound fine, and it even has a truss rod (which you don't normally get in a cheapie). Add the bonus of a built-in tuner, and this makes for one very nice package that would be great as a starter for someone wanting to learn without spending a fortune. From my perspective, the only negative is the lack of any "amplification" option but, hey, you can't expect that at this level. (Besides, you could always add a cheap piezo pick-up.) For me, I've seen and heard enough to want a more expensive acoustic-electric nylon-strung guitar, and I've today ordered the Artist HG39303CEQ model ..... Overall, this CL44 is an excellent unit — in giving it 5 stars, I don't mean to imply that it's top-of-the-line, but rather that it represents unbeatable value and quality for the money.
