  • I have fat fingers, would you recommend getting the classical guitar with the wider neck for a beginner?

      i would just get whatever style of guitar fits the kind of music you want to play the most, you'll figure out how to make it work

    Not sure if it works for everyone, but i can see 10$ off on ebay

  • They are cheap for a reason If you are serious about learning guitar then research better alternatives Cheap guitars can make the process such a painful and tedious experience

      i don't necessarily disagree, but it depends

      my friend had a sub $100 aldi acoustic which was way more playable out of the factory than my $300 yamaha. it also didn't last more than a few years which is to be expected, but the point is that even more expensive beginner guitars often still need a setup from a luthier ($70)

      I've just started learning on one of Artist's acoustics (one of their dreadnoughts, the LSPCEQNTL). It's no Maton, but it sounds nice and it's easy to play for a beginner like me. They're specifically set up with low string action so they're easy for beginners to play. There's a few small cosmetic imperfections on mine, as you'd expect on a guitar this price, but nothing that affects the playability.

      It will be a long time before the guitar is the limiting factor in my playing, rather than my lack of skill.

      So I'd say they're great entry-level guitars for someone who is on a budget, who wants to try guitar playing but doesn't want to spend much in case they don't stick with it, or someone who wants a beater for round the campfire etc. There's certainly lots of alternatives, but you could easily spend twice as much and not be sure it's 'better'.

        I started learning mid-2020 or so, on an Artist electric. I've now got two more guitars, also from Artist, including an acoustic. I'm very happy with all three of them.

        I don't have any guitars from other brands, so I don't have any real point of comparison, but agree that these guitars aren't going to be the limiting factor in your playing for a while. I certainly haven't reached that point yet. That said, I'm thinking of buying something 'nicer', not because I need it, but just because I feel like I might want something that says 'Fender' (or whatever) on it, because I can and I've gotten through enough to know it's something I'm sticking with.

        When I was first looking for a guitar, I came across Artist and initially wrote them off without looking into them, assuming they'd be cheap junk. I kept coming across them and was so glad I took the time to look into them, including reading and watching quite a few reviews, rather than getting sucked in to buying one of the way-overpriced Squier or Epiphone starter packs.

        • I’ve still got my squire from 1994 or thereabouts (made in Japan) could do with new pickups but a great buy at twice the price

          • @Appleboat: I'm talking about the 'starter pack' type things currently being sold, which are more comparable to these Artist guitars in price, though still somewhat more expensive and by most accounts I found, far worse value for money.

              @nullAndVoid: Yeh I could be out of date and heard good things about the high-end artist guitars from China a few months ago. As someone noted above, whatever a beginner does, buying only on price can impact you continuing on guitar so choose carefully! It could be these are a good buy at a low price point - you should always go play first. Generally go as high as you can afford without being silly for a good learning experience.

            • +1

              @nullAndVoid: And just an extra note on Artist's starter packs, I think it's a fantastic deal if you're getting into guitar playing from scratch. They give you everything you need to get started; a stand, spare strings, a gig bag, picks, a strap, a capo, etc etc. All perfectly serviceable quality stuff, that if you had to buy individually you'd spend way more on and probably not be sure what you actually needed to get.

  • How good is the action? I find cheap guitars have high action and kills your fingers and then your enthusiasm.

    • +3

      We have all our guitars set up in the factory and the action is not like other cheap acoustics.
      If you take a look at the reviews on the product listing you'll get an idea of what to expect.

        Thanks. for a beginner, IMHO this is what matters most. The rest only matter if they continue to play for more than 1000 hours.

        I recently played a Taylor $1600 guitar and the action is SO LOW!!! How low can you go? I don't know but it ain't low on $500 Yamaha yo!!

  • It says it in the title but just be careful if you change colour (black or natural). Only the blue is on special.
