Artist Apricus6 Vintage Burst Electric Guitar w/ Humbuckers

Taking inspiration from heavier styles of music, the Artist Apricus6 is more than just a metal guitar. Featuring a contoured Mahogany body, with a beautiful Quilted Maple veneer, this guitar both looks and feels amazing. The 22-fret, bolt-on neck is made from Roasted Maple, with an Eco-rosewood fretboard.

The guitar is built for anything, with a hardtail bridge, dual-humbucker pickup configuration, bone nut, and locking tuners. The lightweight, contoured body features a string-thru design which gives the guitar great sustain. Whether you want to shred faster than the speed of light, or just kick back with some delectable jazz chords, the Apricus6 will shine.

Nice Guitar

By: on 18 May 2023
This is a lovely guitar, the build quality exceeds the price. The fit and finish is great, my only criticisms would be the frets are a slightly rough and the intonation on a couple of strings, needs a light tweak, really non issues at this price. I love the wood binding on the body, looks great. The locking tuners are a nice addition too, the hardware is good. The pickups are hot, which is great and is the reason I chose this guitar over a standard T-Model. Shipping and delivery was smooth too. Thank you Artist, well done.

Apricus6 Review - Great guitar!

By: on 16 May 2022
If you're looking for a lightweight, comfortable, workhorse dual-humbucker guitar, this is a great option. Locking tuners. Neck looks great and feels great in the hand. Guitar needed some minor adjustments (to my preferences) but solid setup straight out of the box. Tuning is very stable (nut is cut nicely and having a fixed bridge really helps with that). The pickups sound clear and balanced. Medium output - definitely not vintage but less aggressive than the Artist Bullbuckers to my ear. Lovely clean tones but can rock with an overdriven amp. Electronics feel solid - output jack are secure, no wobbly parts, pickup selector seem good. Very happy with this guitar. Pairs very well with the Artist ST62 in terms of tones. Well done Artist Guitars!
