Factory 2nd Artist HG39303CEQL Left Hand Classical Guitar Solid Cedar
About Artist Guitars Factory Seconds
This is a factory second product which means it didn't pass our Quality Control test. It could be due to minor scratches, small marks, a slight discolouration of the wood, the paint could be a different colour or some other minor cosmetic issues. Each guitar will usually only have one of these issues. They play and function perfectly and sound the same as the guitars that passed quality control. Unfortunately, we can't show pictures of individual guitars.
We have a very strict Quality Control and if the guitars were damaged significantly or the sound of the guitar was changed they would not have become a factory second (we have 3 different grades for damaged products depending on how damaged an item is). This is a great buy and just like all of our products it also comes with 100-days free returns and a full 3-year warranty.
Artist HG39303CEQL Left Handed Classical Guitar Solid Cedar Top + Cutaway & 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 a built-in tuner, so if you want to perform or record this is ideal for you.
It also has a built-in 2-way truss rod which is a really great feature on a classical (most other brands don't do this)

High quality and quick serviceBy: Raymond on 24 July 2021This is a beautifully finished guitar even though it's a factory 2nd you would never know. I have owned a number of electric, steel and nylon guitars like Fender, Gibson, Yamaha, Ibanez etc. and this is as good as any. It has a very good tone, action and sustains. It has very good 12th fret intonation. Delivery was quick and it was packed safely. I was so impressed that I purchased another Artist guitar too.
