Artist Brownburst58 X Anniversary Limited Edition Semi Hollow Electric Guitar

To celebrate our 10th annniversary, We present you with the 10th Anniversary Limited Edition, Brownburst58!

This classic style guitar has existed in many forms since it was first released in 1958. Since then it has been coveted by some of the greatest Rock 'n Roll, Blues and Jazz guitarists that the world has ever known. Legendary names like BB King, Freddie King, John McLaughlin, Larry Carlton, Jorma Kaukonen, Eric Clapton, and Elvin Bishop are among the multitude of players who have loved the diverse tones that this type of instrument offers. Now it's your turn!

This is a great sounding instrument and aesthetically beautiful at the same time. It features a 3 piece Maple neck with an Ebony Fretboard. The 22 frets show off the 'Block' shaped plastic inlays and when you add to the comfortable ""C"" shape neck, the wheeled tune-o-matic bridge and a locking stop-bar tailpiece, you have a guitar that will not only feel great under your fingers but one that will sustain forever.

The Brownburst 58 sports our Signature Bullbucker Individual Coil Splitting pickups which means that you have the option of the warm throaty tones of the neck pickup or the biting clean sounds of the bridge pickup. When you set your toggle switch in between neck and bridge pickup you get that wonderful almost out of phase sound which confirms that this is an extremely versatile guitar that will be very responsive under your fingers. You will be able to put a stamp on all those great blues solos and wail like the greats or you could darken the tone to suit the ""cool"" of any dingy little jazz club.

The Limited Edition Brownburst58 will only be on sale while stocks last and won't be hanging around for long! Get yours now!

Stuck like glue

Being a intermediate blues guitar player, the Brownburst 58x is stuck to me like glue. I just love this guitar and its sounds. Every time I pick this guitar up i'm finding new sounds and losing hours. Thanks Artist Guitars.

When you lose hours whenever you are around your guitar, that is a good thing! Thank you for the purchase and for your support. Rock on!

The Mandalorian of Guitars

A few dinks and chips on across the guitar would normally reduce my rating, but in this case I find it appropriate for the colour scheme. The pickups are excellent quality, making the guitar an absolute joy to the ears. The range of knobs on the guitar make it surprisingly versatile, making it an excellent option for gentle jazz, hard rock, soft pop and just about anything else you can think of. The strings have the perfect amount of bounce to them, delivering a pleasant twang that is neither too trebly, nor bassy. The tuning clips are what I'm particularly impressed with. This guitar stays in tune far better than a standard epiphone les paul, even after tightening the epiphone's clips. On top of all of this, the guitar is gorgeous and excellently priced. I'm convinced that due to its affordable price tag, fast delivery and impressively quality, that I finally have found a brand of guitar that makes a suitable gift to others. Top notch work Artist! Not a single complaint here.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review Felix. I am so stoked to hear that you are happy with our Brownburst58! Catchy title from a Star Wars fan like me. :)

A Beautiful Instrument that is Amazing Value for M

By: on 28 January 2021
What can I say? The Artist Guitars Brownburst58 X Anniversary Limited Edition is amazing! When I was a semi-pro player many years ago I had a real Gibson 335TDC which I purchased new in 1962, so I think I am qualified to make a reasonable comparison. I played pop rock and later club work. My family have been on to me to play again, which I hadn’t done for about 35 years! I bought a small electro acoustic and added an Artist Guitars AGA 40watt amplifier - my first purchase from the company. It is very well made and was well matched to the guitar. Of course, once you have had a real 335 you still want to find something like it and so I searched music shops for replicas, eventually ending up deciding to try the Brownburst58 after querying a few points with the helpful Artist Guitars team. I ordered one, with a case, late on a Thursday afternoon and amazingly it all arrived on the Saturday morning – 10 out of 10 for fast service! The finish on mine is exceptional with no flaws - you even get edge binding to the ‘F’ holes and on the ends of the frets as standard (didn’t have that on the Gibson!). It is heavier and the neck chunkier than my ‘62, but Gibson necks have varied quite a bit over the years, with the early ‘62 being the thinnest. Here it is all about personal preference (and familiarity!) because if you read the Gibson forum you will find players bemoaning that some necks are not thick enough. My Brownburst58 came well setup with a low action which I adjusted to just under 2mm action on the first string and 2.5mm on the sixth with no fret buzz. The intonation was also correct. I am only playing this at home, but many of the tones are very familiar sounding. All in all its exceptional value and I am enjoying reliving my 'glory days' without paying a fortune!
