As an addition to buying your new guitar, we are proud to offer you a series of online lessons designed specifically for beginning guitar students. This series of lessons is designed and presented by our inhouse guitar teacher John Holland. John has over 35 years of teaching experience from beginner to advanced and absolutely believes that the basic fundamentals of this great instrument form an extremely useful base for all practising guitarists.
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!

Here are the reasons why:

   We use sustainable timbers on all of our beginner to intermediate guitars. The neck and bridge of the CL12 is constructed from a composite rosewood timber substitute known as eco-rosewood.

 The guitar has been set-up at the factory for optimum beginner playing level. We call this Practical string action. String action is the height of the string to the fretboard. This is very important because a guitar with a high action is hard to play, while a guitar with too low an action will buzz unnecessarily 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 low 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 and because it's built into the guitar, you'll never lose it.

  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.

Bought this as a 1st guitar for our grandaughter. Great for a young beginer, & the fact that it has an in built tuner, saves a lot of unnessasary hassles. Just worth every cent. Service was outstanding too!

Great beginner's guitar for kids

I've been playing guitars for 30+ years and I bought this guitar for my 6yr old son. The nylon strings and 1/2 size (as recommended) are perfect! The built-in tuner is very handy too. He's already learned his first riff! I highly recommend this guitar for young beginners. Delivery was next-day (Sydney Metro) and delivered on time.

Love it
