I gave this one a go...

... And you should too! This one was ordered as an acoustic option for students at the school I teach at. I chose 2 of these when they were on sale, and given my experience with 2 other models of Artist acoustic guitars I was prepared for this one to go either way. I was pleasantly surprised! The action (the part I was most worried about) was totally acceptable straight out of the box, so we got these into student rotation straight away and they are being well loved. Tonally, they do an acoustic guitar well. I am excited about the Fishman pickup system, as they will likely be a bit better for school performances and recording. For this price, I would totally recommend this guitar!

Amazing guitar for the price

Ordered the DS120CEQ and it arrived about a week later. Guitar is unmarked. Neck is perfect and no adjustment was needed. The action was high at the 12th fret so I filed down the saddle. Action at the 12th fret is now 2mm, and there is no fret buzz anywhere. I am amazed at how well it plays for a $350 guitar, considering that it also has a solid top, cutaway and a pickup. Got this for my sons girlfriend who is a beginner - I think this guitar is good enough to take her from a beginner to advanced. Sounds great thru my amp.

Stunning guitar

This guitar has surpassed all my expectations, it is beautifully finished and produces a rich sound. The Fishman pickup works a treat and gives the guitar so much more versatility. The satin finish gives this guitar that quality finish that I have come to expect from Artist Guitars. Don't let the low price fool you, this is a quality instrument form Australia's best guitar manufacturers. Thanks once again Artist Guitars!
