About this Artist HG39303CEQ Classical Guitar Solid Cedar Top + Cutaway and EQ
This is one of my personal favourites. The solid cedar top gives it a really warm sound and we have added a Spanish heel. For those of you that don't know, the Spanish heel is a much more difficult way of making a guitar but it greatly improves the sustain. On standard Classical guitars they often use dowels to attach the neck and a lot of tone can be lost through this joint.
As with all our solid top guitars we use a bone nut and saddle, the hardness of the bone allows great tone and sustain, the typical plastic nuts are quite soft and have the effect of deadening the sound.
This model also comes with a Fishman Presys pre-amp/pickup with built-in tuner, so if you want to perform or record this is ideal for you.

Beautiful guitar at great priceBy: Adrian on 1 August 2020After developing a keen interest in classical guitar over the past few years, I knew the time was right to finally go out and purchase a classical guitar for myself. I knew about Artist and this guitar stood out to me and I somewhat hesitantly made the decision to buy it as I hadn't purchased from Artist before. After a few months with the guitar, I can easily say this is an absolutely beautiful instrument which more then outperforms its price tag. The solid cedar top has a lovely finish and the guitar itself produces a soft, warm tone. Playing the likes of Classical Gas and Cavatina sound amazing and very true to their original recordings. Nothing about this guitar sounds "cheap" and the action on the guitar is set perfectly for effortless play-ability, although an allen key is provided all the same. The tuners seem to be of good quality and I haven't seemed to have had any tuning problems outside the first couple of uses (which is expected before they wear in). I've been playing steel string and electric guitar for over 6 years now, so I can't claim to be an expert in classical guitars. However, to my ear and playing ability, this is an exceptional instrument which I would highly recommend to any beginner/intermediate guitar player to get their hands on. The pickup and in-built tuner just add to the "how is it this affordable" factor. So if you're on the fence, for the price you'll pay you won't have any regrets.
