Artist JMH200CEQ Solid Mahogany Top Acoustic-Electric with Preamp

The JMH200CEQ has a Solid Mahogany Top and Laminated Mahogany back and sides with a captivating finish and slightly bevelled edges. It's a full-sized guitar with cut-away.

Mahogany provides a more resonant tone, that is able to sustain longer. Players most often find that the tone also remains more balanced than most other guitar tonewoods. Sounds produced from a mahogany guitar tend to be on the warmer, more controlled side of tone. Most acoustic guitars feature mahogany in the guitar neck, because it provides a more stable feel. The tonewood may be used in the body of some guitars to produce a deeper, warmer tone.

As with all of our solid top range it includes real bone nut for optimum tone transfer. The hardness of the bone gives the string a solid basis to vibrate against, whereas plastic nuts are often very soft and this can be a cause of tone loss.

The Fishman Presys II pre-amp and built-in chromatic tuner mean that you can plug this guitar in for live performance or recording.

Artist JMH200CEQ Solid Mahogany Top Acoustic-Elect

By: on 6 April 2022
I recently purchased a 'damaged' acoustic electric guitar that had been bought by a customer, returned then advertised on TradeMe as “damaged” by Artist Guitars NZ. The bridge had been incorrectly glued on (insufficient glue), and had lifted so much that it was unplayable - the strings could not even be brought up to tension. The customer had returned the guitar to Artist Guitars under their 3-year warranty, and I presume the guitar was replaced with another same model. The guitar in question is an Artist JMH200CEQ Solid Mahogany Top Acoustic-Electric Guitar - designed in NZ and manufactured in China. It arrived safely in a cardboard box with all strings slackened, but when I first set my eyes on it, I was truly amazed by its workmanship, choice of materials, and beauty. I wrote back to the company thanking them "it is truly a very well designed, beautifully presented & crafted (as yet unplayed) instrument". Once I had removed the bridge and cleaned the old glue off the underside of it; scraped back the 'poly' finish on the top of the guitar (inside the bridge area); dry-checked the 'fit'; then reglued the bridge back on the guitar with Titebond (original); clamped it; removed excess glue; allowed the glue to dry; re-installed the Fishman under-saddle pickup ... then restrung the guitar up to pitch and played , and played. and played, and played it … this truly is a remarkable looking & sounding guitar. This guitar IMHO rivals any similarly made all mahogany guitar that I have ever played, including a very well used 60's Gibson LG-0, a 20 year old Martin 15-M, plus a few laminate & solid-top mahogany offerings with mahogany laminate back & sides ... this guitar retails in New Zealand for $399, and at that price it surely has to be the most affordable, well-crafted and BEST sounding mahogany acoustic guitar I have ever set my eyes upon, let alone play - its “roundness” of sound, especially in the low & low-mid frequency range is astounding, especially when finger-picked, but when played flat-picked, it projects with a clarity, punch & volume to rival any spruce or cedar topped guitar in its class & design. PS: The sound of the guitar when amplified using its Fishman under-saddle pickup & on-board Fisherman Presys electronics (including tuner) is pristine, hum free & what you would expect from any Fishman electronics - excellent! dave maybee Raglan NZ March 2022
