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.

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:

 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.

 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.

 Artist Guitars has been designing guitars for over 10 years and during this time we have developed a great working relationship with our factories to constantly improve the quality and value - we know how to get a great value guitar at a truly unbeatable price!

We are so confident you will love your new Artist Guitar that we offer you:

One happy player

I haven't played for many years so I was looking for something nice and easy to play as well as not too big as my wife wanted to play but her hands are quite small. We are very pleased with the guitar! It looks great and sounds very nice! The neck is just narrow enough for her hand but not too small for mine. Only downside is that it arrived too quickly and I couldn't keep the surprise :-) Very recommended for anyone!

This guitar was all I expected it to be and was a perfect match for the Artist CL24SPKAM Half Size Classical Guitar Pack I purchased for my young Grandson recently. Artist guitars and products do not disappoint. Thanks for great products and great service.

A surprising package

By: on 22 June 2018
I'm not a "classical" guitarist, so purists should probably ignore this review. I'm instead writing from the perspective of an experienced acoustic-electric guitarist who bought this to experiment with a "nylon string" sound before deciding whether to outlay bigger bucks. Because it was just dipping my toe in the water, so to speak, I didn't want to spend much, so the pricing of this guitar seemed about right ..... In short, I was pleasantly surprised. To be frank, I''m not sure how AG does it at this price level. The guitar is nicely finished, action is acceptable, intonation (while not 100% exact) is near enough to sound fine, and it even has a truss rod (which you don't normally get in a cheapie). Add the bonus of a built-in tuner, and this makes for one very nice package that would be great as a starter for someone wanting to learn without spending a fortune. From my perspective, the only negative is the lack of any "amplification" option but, hey, you can't expect that at this level. (Besides, you could always add a cheap piezo pick-up.) For me, I've seen and heard enough to want a more expensive acoustic-electric nylon-strung guitar, and I've today ordered the Artist HG39303CEQ model ..... Overall, this CL44 is an excellent unit — in giving it 5 stars, I don't mean to imply that it's top-of-the-line, but rather that it represents unbeatable value and quality for the money.

Excellent Guitar

Over the years I have had 9 or 10 nylon string guitars, some cheap some not cheap. This slim neck guitar is by far the best quality one I have ever owned. I bought it for my grandson to learn on and now I might have to buy another as I really want to keep this one. This is an ideal guitar to learn on and as a go to guitar instead of unpacking the electrics every time I want to play a riff or two.

Love it!

The guitar package is fantastic at a great price and their service was brilliant! I ordered a 3/4 classic guitar package and found it was abit small for me. Returned it for the 4/4 slim neck guitar package without a problem and it was perfect! I love it! Their response was prompt and very strongly recommend them. I'm giving Artist Guitars 5 Stars.
