Artist JMH200CEQ Solid Mahogany Top Acoustic-Electric with Preamp

The JMH200CEQ has a Solid Mahogany Top with laminated Mahogany back and sides. This is a full-sized, 41” guitar with a high neck access cut-away, for easy, comfortable playing.

Mahogany provides a very resonant tone that sustains beautifully, with a very balanced tone. The JMH200CEQ produces full, warm tones from the mahogany body, with a harmonious mid-range and clear upper mids. The beveled edges of the body make this a very comfortable guitar to play seated or standing, and give it a very eye-catching look too. The rounded edge also accents the fabulous grain of the top wood against the white body binding, which really makes this guitar very elegant and attractive.

As with all of our solid-top instruments the JMH200CEQ includes real bone nut for optimum tonal transfer. The hardness of the bone gives the string a solid basis to vibrate against and ensures the best possible transfer of vibration, as does the solid Laurel bridge housing the saddle. The Okumen neck is comfortable with a gloss finish, and the rounded machine heads, solid Laurel fingerboard and high-quality frets make this a player's instrument. 

The JMH200CEQ features a Presys II pre-amp by Fishman, who are renowned for their acoustic amplification expertise. This also features a built-in chromatic tuner, phase switch, and EQ, making this guitar the perfect companion for any stage or studio.

Hi Stephen, always plenty of great bargains to be found in the bargain bin! Glad to hear you're enjoying your guitar! Harry

I can say without hesitation, this guitar (solid mahogany top acoustic) is outstanding. The build and quality finish is on par with many top end guitars and the sound/tone is clean and crisp. This is indeed an immaculate piece of kit and given the price tag ….a must buy!

A lot of guitar for the $$$ money!

By: on 17 April 2023
This review is about 1st impressions only as my JMH200CEQ guitar, just arrived this morning. As a preface, I've played acoustic guitar professionally for over forty years and own some lovely handmade acoustics and electrics. Well... it's an absolutely gorgeous looking guitar and it plays extremely well. Tone is more on the modern acoustic side, no low end boom like a dreadnought. Intonation, finish and attention to detail is immaculate eg. No excess glue visible on any inside surface (scalloped bracing too btw). The Fishman Presys Pickup is killer but you will need to EQ it properly to avoid the dreaded piezoelectric "quack". Compensated bone saddle and bone nut with very lovely binding make this a stunner. What an absolutely cracking bargain for the money. Thanks so much Artist Guitars

Great Sound

By: on 17 April 2023
The one I got doesn't look no where near as pretty as the one on this page. The grain isn't as pronounced and the one I got is about 4 or 5 times darker than the one in these photos. However it plays heaps better than my Yamaha and sound just as good if not better. Its my 3rd Artist Guitar. Looks like I'll never buy another Yamaha.

Further to my review for the JMH200CEQ I replaced the machine tuners with 'locking' tuners.. no problems with tuning stability. I should have mentioned the excellent seamless service that Artistguitars provides.

JMH200CEQ This is a very beautiful acoustic guitar initially the tone was a bit 'earthy' and is to be expected with a 'fresh' guitar, .a year on the 'trebley' tones have the same gain as the lower tones. Now, I'm a guitar tech and the following should not be attempted if you don't know what you are doing. For me the action was a fraction too high, most players will not notice it, I took 3mm off the bone bridge.. just the way I like it. This is the only adjustment I have made to an Artistguitars and I have purchased nine guitars. The build quality is excellent and value for money.

Awesome sound.

Picked up the acoustic finally and so glad I did. I would see it every time I was in there and something about just kept catching my eye. The sound this guitar makes is freaking awesome. What a beautiful piece of gear. I have a Yamaha guitar which cost 4 times as much as this guitar and feels 1/4 the quality. All I can tell you is just get one you won't be disappointed.

improvements to this guitar

By: on 24 July 2022
This review is after spending time with the guitar. This is a great guitar but could be improved by simply building the guitar with a higher bridge . The bridge is too low on the upper e strings. If the bridge was higher the strings would not buzz on the high e . I play many different tunings and for this guitar I will set it up with raised high e for c tunings. The guitar is fine for standard tunings e . If the guitar was supplied with a higher e bridge it is simple to lower the bridge for each string using a round nedel file.

I've bought strings and other bits and pieces from Artist before, but this is my first guitar from you guys. Wow! Beautufully finished, great tone and action straight out of the box. Pick-up / EQ works great. Fabulous value for money. This won't be the last guitar I buy from Artist!! Cheers.

This is one amazing guitar. It looks fantastic & it's easy to play. I just love the sound of it. It is a pleasure every time I open the case as I just LOVE the look of it. I'm just so amazed that for the price this was a bargain. I now own a few Artist guitars that I wish I had more time to play them. Thanks Artist guitars for another Gem! I have NO regrets buying this. Thank You Artist Guitars!

No quality control on Artist JMH200CEQ Mahogany Ac

By: on 11 October 2021
AG Team, this is regrettably a bad review. I have dealt with you for 5-6 yrs and this is NOT acceptable. 3rd fret G buzzes on 4th fret for 1st and 2nd strings. Gm sounds ugly, same for Gbm at 14th fret. It's unplayable. I've had numerous guitars over the last 52 years and I've never had this happen, even on a couple of garage guitars bought from Aldi. I collected from the warehouse and never thought twice to check, did so at home and I was gutted.I really liked it. Fit like a glove. Gutted. Not my style to critique in the negative but had to, that this should not happen to another customer. I intend to inform your sales team .

I am so sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for informing us of this. My colleague has sent an answer to your query so we can have this guitar returned and replaced.

a beautiful instrument

By: on 21 July 2021
I pre-ordered this and have had no regrets at all since it arrived. Beautiful, earthy tone and a joy to look at, it is also a very forgiving instrument to play. Value for money is amazing - I have played instruments valued at many times this price and nowhere near as nice to play. Get one and enjoy it!!
