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)

Great guitar, fantastic value and serviceBy: David Harris on 29 October 2018I bought this guitar to get the right sound for bossa nova and other fingerstyle songs, and I must say I am really pleased with it. It sounds warm and resonant unplugged, and even better plugged into my Yamaha THR practice amp with a little chorus and reverb. There are so few guitars on the Australian market like this for left-handers, and none of this value for money, so well done Artist for thinking of us. The action and neck finishing are very good. I live in Sydney, so was able to get along to the showroom to try out the guitar, and got great friendly service from John, who really knows his instruments.
Quality well made guitarBy: Ian Watts on 12 September 2018What a wonderful guitar. My daughter is so pleased. It plays as good as a guitar twice the price. Other students are envious of her excellent guitar. She might be the only left handed guitar player in class but she is the most stylish.
