Artist OMC200EQ Solid Cedar Top Acoustic Electric Guitar

The stunning solid cedar-topped OMC200EQ provides, bright, snappy acoustic tones with broad harmonic qualities.

This OM-sized acoustic is the ideal instrument for those looking for a solid tonal palette at an affordable price, and this guitar boasts many features not often found on a guitar in this price range. For example, the maple binding on the back of the Ash body and bound eco-rosewood fretboard compliment the walnut and maple back stripe over the Okumen neck, with a premium 5-line binding over the front of the body also. 

The fretboard features 18% nickel frets for increased durability, with a bone nut and saddle ensuring true tonal transfer to the solid cedar top. This helps project a clear and bright tone from the smaller, OM-style body, with enough sustain and resonance to fill any room, and ensures great tuning stability with the chrome-covered Grover tuners. Plus, the OMC200EQ also features and inbuilt Presys II preamp from acoustic amplification powerhouse Fishman, with an inbuilt tuner, 2-band EQ and inbuilt phase switching.

Great Guitar

By: on 21 May 2023
I bought one of these second hand for $100. I only really went for it to try out an Artist guitar, as I have wanted to support the brand. I was very surprised by this little unit. I had only ever had jumbo acoustics before this, and didn't understand how brilliant these slightly smaller bodied guitars can be. I love this guitar! It is one of the most winsome and comfortable acoustic guitars, especially for a finger picking guitarist like myself. It has so much character, the intonation was great, the Fishman pickup is up to the task and has a timeless, no frills quality construction that I have no doubt will last for quite a long time. Even at the asking price, these are very good value and I would consider them equivalent to a name brand guitar at about the $800-$900 price point without a case. This guitar inspired me to step up to an OMC500SN.

Should Cost More

By: on 29 November 2021
I was looking for a smaller bodied acoustic that was easy to play but still sounded great. I bought this as an ex-display and really it hasn't disappointed once the strings were changed. The finish is satin, bone nuts and saddle, timber binding which jazzes it up a bit and add a nice touch. The fret ends were generally good except on the higher frets. A quick file and some sandpaper and it was good to go. Setup is easy with the truss adjustment through the sound hole. The action for me is perfect and other than filing down the nut slots slightly, the guitar played great already. Of course being an acoustic, the way it sounds is paramount and doesn't disappoint. It doesn't sound boxy and the built in pickup is quite good as well for the price this is being sold. Highly recommended.

A very playable guitar with a good action and nice if a tad narrow neck from what I usually play.The Fishmen pickup works well and Grover machine heads keeps the guitar in tune without a problem. I don’t know how Artist can sell a guitar this well made for the low price point

Bloody great

They say you get what you pay for. Well Artist have made a fantastic sounding, Solid Top guitar with quality hardware, including hard case for $500Aus. My guitar has no issues except for what mate said below, tape holding wiring has come unstuck, (need a better quality tape Artist.) Other than that I will put a heavier gauge string set on when needed although that might be a while as these are quality too. I have briefly plugged her in to check the electrics, no problems here. I also have to say there was quite a bit of "factory dust" on it. Again no concern for me and when strumming it out you can really smell the timbers used! Would have been 4stars due to the tape coming un-stuck but gets 5 due to shipping being very fast and packaged very well even though it was hard cased. I had no problem buying a higher priced acoustic, I'm glad I didn't, as for me I'm bloody stoked!

Really Nice Guitar

By: on 1 July 2020
Bought one of these from the bargain bin, customer returned. Wow, it was perfect, only thing that I could find was internal pick up wiring had come loose where it sticks to underside of body. That could have happened in transit. 30 sec fix and it was ready to go. Great sound acoustically and through my amp. Had bought this on a whim, but so glad I did. Really a quality instrument, 5 Stars all round

Blown Away...

By: on 13 February 2020
My guitar teacher was blown away when I turned up with this guitar recently! To my ears there was no significant difference between it, and his Martin...I can see this becoming my 'go to' acoustic after a couple of adjustments - to suit me better - by the local Luthier...great work've got me!

Bright and playable

By: on 26 May 2019
Bought to use alongside my dreadnought, this OM size is super-comfortable to play and has a lovely, bright tone. I've bought electric guitars from Artist before, but this is my first acoustic from them and it's very impressive for the price. In addition to the nicely finished body and subtle design, it comes with quality Grover machine heads, Fishman pickup and a really good set of strings, which is always a bonus. Feels, plays and looks like an instrument you'd pay a lot more for if it had a different name on the headstock. Information, packaging and delivery time all great as always. Thanks Artist for another beautiful guitar and reliably excellent customer experience.

Tone, Clarity, Playability

If you're already shopping OM size you know what's to like: portability and comfort without compromising on a great sound. These tonewoods and the construction of the guitar are a real treat. Artist service and buying experience are fantastic, can't recommend enough.
