Best online guitar gear store!
I'm a long-time Artist Guitars customer (over six years now), and I've bought many, many items from them, ranging from picks / capos / pedals / hard cases through to higher-end guitars and amps. Right now, I own six Artist guitars - a TC59 Telecaster, a VHYB5 5-string P-J Bass, a Spiritus7 7-String Electric, an OMS8FEQ Acoustic-Electric, an HG39303CEQ Classical, and an OS60EQ Parlour Acoustic-Electric, and I'd rate each of those as excellent. (You guitarists out there will recognise the symptoms of severe G.A.S. (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) :-)....Yes, they're all made in S.E. Asia, but then so are many "name brand" guitars costing two or three times what AG charge. Consistently, build quality has been first-rate, set-up on delivery has been good (only some minor action/intonation tweaking needed), and pre- and after-sales service has been superb. And no, I don't work for Artist Guitars - in fact, I've never even visited their store, as I live in provincial Queensland. These guys have managed to optimise price, quality, and service, and they deserve the high ratings they score. And on the rare occasions when I've encountered a problem, it has been sorted courteously, quickly, and to my complete satisfaction. If I could award them 6 stars out of 5, I would.
It would've been a 5 star review if not for their choice in Courier
You guys were fantastic to deal with and helping me sort out my delivery issues, seemed very nice and helpful. Unfortunately your choice in Couriers Please is a real let down as they have a very poor service and have failed to deliver the item requested by the date due to the drivers negligence.
Its because of Couriers Please that I wont be shopping with you guys again until you change courier services.
Incredible. Absolutely incredible!
I placed an order for my LP6G CIMMERIAN guitar on a Wednesday morning. That afternoon I had confirmation it had been dispatched. I received it Friday morning and it's UNBELIEVABLE. The quality is outstanding for the price! It's a beautiful guitar! I can't recommend Artist highly enough, and I intend to with family, friends and colleagues. It's my 1st purchase from Artist and definitely won't be my last! Great Aussie company. Thanks so much guys!!!
Artist " Grungemaster " Guitar... Great Value !!!
I retired from music gigs recently after some 55 years and I have had a lot of makes and models of guitars / basses over the year; Fender, Gibson, Schecter, you name it and over the past 12 months or so I sold the lot ( I had about 40 guitars and a dozen or so basses which left me with one acoustic... ) I thought I'd give the Artist " Grungemaster " with a hard case a try so I bought one online yesterday... it arrived this morning ( Fast delivery ) and I can tell you that it is a really good instrument for not a lot of money and sounds pretty d...amn good through my little Fender amp... Artist Guitars Company Number 1... I have previously bought things from Artist Guitars and always excellent service and prompt delivery... Bob Hely. Pimpama. Qld.

About a week ago i purchased the LP60 wasn't expecting much for the price, but its a beautiful looking guitar, and myself being a beginner it really doesn't matter, but i was pleasantly surprised, it sounds far better than most guitars i picked up at my local music store of around the same value..
It feels good, heavy and solid... looks, well almost too good to be played LOL, really enjoying it so far.
Service from Artist guitars is excellent, shipping was really fast, no complaints about packaging.
Actually, i'm about to make yet another purchase from the Artist Ebay store, either the AG45 or an STH, lol i'm hooked
I chose the courier option however I wish I had chosen the local post... It took ages to get to me...but when it did...yaya ..what a beautiful piece of craftmanship for the money...it is as awesome as it looks and plenty of room for pitch bending...it does have a bottom E buzz but no different to the Fender squire tele /strat range...more bang for your buck...really happy with this purchase...

Best value for money beginner guitar
The product was so good that this is the first review I've ever done for anything. Bought the 3/4 Classical guitar value pack for my daughter and the guitar was outstanding not to mention it came with gig bag, picks and extra strings. I had previously bought a 3/4 Yamaha for my son 2 years ago and just the guitar itself cost almost double what I paid for this guitar, add all the accessories and its more than double and the Artist guitar is a better product. The inbuilt tuner is just fantastic and makes tuning very easy for the kids. Also got the guitar 2 days after ordering and was informed all the way or its progress and arrival. I'll definitely be back to get another for my youngest.
Best quality for small amount of money EVER
I have bought a few things from artist guitars (diy guitar kit, strap, guitar and bass strings, capo, etc) and all of their stuff is just so good quality. My diy guitar kit was only $99 because it was marked down in a sale, and Everything was made correctly, like the screw holes are in the correct place, the neck fits perfectly, and once it was put together, it played, looked and sounded amazing. If this is what you get for $99 here imagine how good the 400 guitars they sell would be. I will buy from them again soon
Also they have free fast shipping to anywhere in Australia! I recommend artist guitars to everyone
Great Instruments at Great Prices
I have been playing guitar and bass for over 40 years - some of those years as a busy professional. When I started out entry level instruments were pretty crummy; guitars that had an action you could walk under, and sounded just as bad. To get anything near the quality of the Artist guitars and basses meant outlaying for an American made instrument and was very costly.
Now that I only play professionally occasionally I don't need a lot of expensive kit laying around. I bought an Artist PJ-Jazz hybrid bass and got an instrument that in my you...th would have cost over $1000. This bass came in dire need of a setup. That is to be expected; most instruments need setting up to A: getting them to a point of general play-ability, and B: getting them set up to the individual's requirements. My bass came with the action set very low, and as the bridge adjustment was at its highest and there was no neck relief it meant a truss rod adjustment was in order. This is a simple job but beginners should get a teacher or music store to show them how it is done. Fortunately I have done this dozens of times. I also prefer flatwound strings so I scrapped the factory set. These I put aside; one of my students may make use of them. When I came to put the new strings on I found that one of the machine heads had not been drilled to receive the string. A quick email to Artist and 3 days later I had a new machine head in my hands. Installed and I was ready to play. Very good after sales service.
