In terms of value, the new Artist í«í´60 Series is probably the best guitar we have ever made. We were very careful to get the construction just right to allow this series to sing, and deliver a player experience thatí«í´s so good; ití«í´s probably revolutionary for a mid price instrument. Whether youí«í´re looking for a Dreadnought, Folk or something a little more niche such as a Baritone, Grand Auditorium or Bass, Artist Series has them all.
Artist Series classical guitars are beautifully made using a traditional Spanish heel construction. Theyí«í´re thoughtful bracing helps deliver sustain, balance and volume. This Hybrid version 65HCE is a classical guitar with a narrower nut (48mm) and therefore thinner neck. The fingerboard is also arched with a radius similar to that of our steel string guitars and its joined at the 14th fret instead of 12th. So really, ití«í´s a nylon string guitar that sounds like a classical but plays like steel string. Very, very cool instrument. Also fitted with the wonderful SYS650 blend system EQ.
