Factory 2nd Artist CL44SPKAM Full Size Classical Guitar Pack, Nylon, S
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.
Not All Classical Guitars Are The Same!
A typical classical has quite a wide neck, great for classical but not great for modern music.This model has a slimmer neck which is more suited to modern music.
This is an ideal guitar for beginners. Its nylon strings are easy on beginner hands and its 4/4 size (full size) suits adults and larger players (if you're looking for a smaller version look at our 3/4 and 1/2 range). This guitar features a slim neck so is suitable for people with smaller hands.
With a great sound to inspire you and a design and set up specific to beginners, you'll breeze through the first stages of your playing.

Here are the reasons why this guitar is great:
We use quality Eco-Rosewood Fingerboard and Bridge. Most guitars of this price range use low-grade maple for the neck and paint it black to make it look like rosewood. Eventually, this will wear down and the black will colour will fade away. If you look closely at our CL44S you should be able to see the grain - the rosewood looks brown, not black
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. You will struggle to find a guitar at this price with a truss rod.
Comes included with a Bag to protect your guitar, Strap and Built-In Tuner - A tuner for a beginner is vital. A guitar needs to be tuned every time you play. This tuner is extremely simple to use so you will be using it correctly in no time at all.

A decent guitar at a decent price.By: Terry Wilson on 9 May 2021I was looking to recent my low quality acoustic guitar, and began by looking locally on Gumtree and at Cash Converters. I wasn't too impressed by what was on offer as the guitars were either well used, expensive or both. Then I remembered Artist Guitars and looked at their online stock. Bingo ! After perusing the site, I decided to buy an Artist Guitars factory second classical guitar at the giveaway price of A$115, after reading the positive reviews of the newer model classical guitar. It arrived on my doorstep a week later and I wasn't disappointed. It has a really nice sound for an inexpensive guitar, and the built in tuner helps you to sound reasonable whatever your level of experience. Whilst the guitar I bought was classed as a factory second, one would have to use a magnifying glass to find out where the fault actually is on the guitar. In my case, there was a very minor blemish on the sound hole pattern, and not discolouration on the body of the guitar which was what I was expecting. This fault does not affect the sound in any way. Also with the guitar came the support package of 100 days free return, learning support, free set of strings and 2 picks, a strap and a good quality guitar bag to carry it around in .What's not to like ? Needless to say, I'm impressed and would recommend Artist Guitars to anyone.
By: Artist GuitarsThank you for taking the time to leave a review Terry and we are glad to know that you are happy with our guitar. We really appreciate your support with us. Cheers!
Excellent value!By: Elizabeth Hook on 16 June 2020This pack contains all the basics a beginner needs to get started. The guitar itself has a pleasant tone, the slimline neck makes it easier to play for those with shorter fingers, and with the integrated digital tuner tuning is simple. Because mine is a factory second there are a couple of small nicks in the finish, but these are hardly noticeable and do not affect the sound or playability. In my view it is excellent value for money and I am absolutely thrilled with it!
Nice guitar, Great value.By: stephen on 18 May 2020These guitars sound really nice, easy to play, slim neck is great if you are used to electric guitars or want to buy an electric later, built in tuner, two way truss rod and a spruce top make these a good value guitar and all you need really.
