Artist LSPSCEQ Small Body Acoustic Electric Guitar Beginner Pack

Our Small Body Lesson Pack (LSPS) Acoustic Guitar Pack is designed with the beginner guitarist in mind. The LSPS range is a little smaller than our LSP series, ideal for Female players or children from Ages 12+ (depending on height). This model features a Pickup with an equaliser - so you can plug into an amp, PA system or recording system.

Imagine how much quicker you will learn with a good quality guitar. With a great sound to inspire you and great design to make it easy to play, you'll breeze through the first stages of your playing.

Receive free exclusive access to video lessons when you buy a lesson pack guitar:

We are proud to offer you a series of online lessons designed specifically for beginning guitar students. This series of lessons was designed inhouse, to give you the best start to your musical career. This is what this lesson pack is all about - the stuff that nobody really tells you at the start of your guitar playing journey. Issues like holding the guitar, using a plectrum and some simple exercises to start you off.

So whether you're 7 or 70, take some time to check out the lesson pack and most importantly - be patient and have fun! Note that you would need to be logged into your Artist Guitar's account and you would have to subscribe to our Newsletter first to receive the link to the lesson program. You can UNSUBSCRIBE as soon as you get the link.

Here are the reasons why this guitar is great:

It has Steel Strings for a great sound. Watch the video above and have a listen to the audio clip to hear how it sounds. Most beginner guitars have nylon strings but unless you want to play classical or Spanish music, you may be disappointed. (If you do prefer the sound of a classical/Spanish style guitar, please check our Classical Guitar Category).

It has a Low String Action (all our guitars are set-up at the factory for optimum beginner playing level). String action is the measurement from the top of the 12th fret to the bottom of the string. This is very important because a guitar with a high action is hard to play, a guitar with too low an action will buzz and sound bad. Artist Guitars are set up at the factory for the optimum level for a beginner.

A Truss Rod that allows you to correct for the effects of weather on the guitar help keep the neck straight and the action height the neck can be adjusted.

Comes included with a Bag to protect your guitar, Strap and Preamp with Built in Tuner - A tuner for a beginner is vital. A guitar needs to be tuned every time you play. As ours is built into the guitar its always in the right place. It's extremely simple to use so you will be using it correctly in no time at all.

Die-cast Machine Heads - This means your guitar will tune quicker, be more stable and stay in tune longer

Recommended by some of Australia's top guitar teachers.

We include a range of Support Materials including how to tune, how to read tab, basic chord shapes and much more.

Our price is always Lower Than a Retail Store (often by 30-40%) we keep our prices low by only selling our own range of guitars direct from the factory. Our business is built on offering a great value guitar at a great price.

When I bought this product I had gotten the wrong size. But due to the amazing service of artist I was able to exchange it for the appropriate quickly and efficiently which is something I am grateful for . The guitar itself is awesome, with a wonderful sound output and I am very satisfied

Artist Guitars Have Done It...Again!

By: on 31 October 2022
I'm a 64yo Total Guitar Novice. The Last Time I Had Any Musical Experience was 50years ago. Last week I had the brainstorm of an idea to jump in the deep end and buy/learn the acoustic/electric guitar....What could possibly go wrong? Well After A Few Days Waiting For My Chosen Purchase To Arrive (It gave me plenty of time to watch Mark Knopfler/Dire Straits Performances On YouTube) The Day Arrived for my guitar to be delivered. OMG! What a beautiful Item now resides in my lounge. I Am working my way slowly through the included online lesson plans to familiarise myself with my purchase. I'm not expecting to be Mark Knopfler V2......I'm just happy to be tinkering with this amazing sounding acoustic/electric guitar. At the purchase price of Less than $350 including the well made and classy hard case......I'm a very happy NEW Customer to Artist Guitars. Thank You All At Artist for an amazing purchase experience and product. Kevin White. Gosford NSW.

Purchased this guitar pack as a beginner and couldn’t be happier! Sounds great, looks beautiful and has low action making it easier on the fingers… if your looking for your first guitar, this is it!

Incredible package for the price

By: on 27 December 2021
I was thoroughly blown away by this acoustic guitar package. For the price, you absolutely can't go wrong. It is a fantastic quality guitar with a great sound. It even comes with a bag, spare strings, truss rod adjustment tool and some picks. Extremely good value for money and highly recommended.

Brilliant Sound and so comfortable to play

By: on 12 November 2021
This guitar is absolutely wonderful to hold and play with a rich, but crisp and bright sound that is very surprising considering the lower price of these guitars compared to others on the market. The action is perfect, and body size also perfect . I had a large dread naught style guitar previously that was just to big to hold so swapped to this one and am so glad I did. Thank you Artist Guitars for creating an exceptional high quality instrument for us budget conscious musicians.

Comfortable little acoustic

By: on 19 September 2021
I got this as a pressie, and it lives in my home office area. My second Artist guitar (after a Cherry 58), its very playable and has helped me to work on rhythm / chords. I love that i can just round pick it and have play. Stays in tune very well and the built in tuner is great. Great little player

Impressed to the max!

By: on 17 September 2021
Absolutely stoked and a pleasant surprise! I picked this guitar on the sleek black look, acoustic electric features and price. Did not disappoint at all. This guitar is just right to have next to me on the lounge to pick up and casually strum while watching tv, or when I want to get serious and plug it into my amp. The built in tuner is so handy. No need for another gadget or trying to tune from a YouTube video like I'd been doing with my old nylon string guitar. Cannot recommend Artist highly enough after this purchase and have now suggested that my friends take the plunge and order that guitar during these times of lockdown. A little bit blown away at the build quality and all the features for the price. Amazing!

Great value

By: on 2 October 2020
Great guitar for the price we'll built the only issue was that the action was Too high and needed an adjustment and the fretboard was very dry and had a fair bit of residue and some dark spots etched into the laquer it took a quiet awhile to clean up a but otherwise it's a really good guitar very happy

Nice little acoustic with a big sound.

By: on 26 July 2020
I bought this one for my 13 year old daughter, she picked it out from the web site herself, so she was waiting excitedly for it's arrival. I must say I was very pleasantly surprised at the quality finish and attention to detail. It plays very nicely too, and it sounds bright and crisp when plugged into an acoustic amp. I would recommend this one for anyone looking for a quality first guitar, or perhaps a nice little traveller, it's quality represents extremely good value for the price. I have recently purchased several guitars from Artist, as a player of nearly 50 years, am completely sold on them, and I cant wait to see the newer models as they are released. Undoubtedly best guitars out there for those on a tight budget.

Black small bodied guitar

By: on 14 July 2020
I ordered this for one of my students. At no time was it stated that it was black. My student loved it,so there was no problem, otherwise you would have seen it back.

Great sound and after purchase follow up

By: on 26 August 2019
The semi acoustics electric guitar was purchased for my daughter as birthday gift . I must say the sound is cristle clear and very easy to tune. It came with warranty as well. The most impressive part is after purchase follow up. I have been receiving emails on lessons and offers. Happy with the customer service.

Acoustic Guitar

By: on 21 November 2018
I was surprised with the quality of my Artist LSPSCEQ Black Small Body Beginner Acoustic Electric Guitar - for the price it is competing on a much higher level. Thank you it's nice to buy something on line and get a great product.

Excellent service and product

By: on 16 July 2018
I have to say from the first contact I felt I was important as I am a novice at playing, there was a constant stream of email answers to my questions even how silly they may have been. The delivery of the product was very quick and the product arrived in perfect order. The company have stayed in touch so I felt so comfortable with leaning the product and for anyone out there looking at using this company I would full recommend them and if I needed another product and it was out of stock I would wait instead of looking else where. keep up the great work.
