Artist Cherry58 Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar w/ Humbucker Pickups

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!

The Artist Cherry58 offers a perfect entry-level guitar for those wishing to begin their journey into the world of blues and Jazz. With the typical set-neck, this guitar is truly a "blues machine". Like the body, the neck is constructed of maple on an eco-friendly Eco-Rosewood fretboard. This wood is a fine substitute for rosewood which is now considered a highly endangered species and as a result is rarely if ever used in general guitar building these days. The 22 frets show off the 'Dot' shaped plastic inlays and the comfortable "C" shape neck, tune-o-Matic bridge and stop-bar tailpiece means you have a guitar that will not only feel great under your fingers but one that will sustain forever.

The Cherry58 sports chrome-covered VLPA Humbuckers with Alnico V magnets, giving you warm throaty tones on 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, making this 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 Cherry58 awaits. Are you ready to take it on?

Fabulous guitar

By: on 20 December 2022
I bought one as a beater to sit beside me while on computer and to pick up in spare moments. I had to adjust a few things like bridge height etc when it arrived but only the sort of things you would normally do to ensure it's set up OK . Then it played gloriously, stayed in tune, no problems with frets or other bits and gave me all the 335 sounds I'd expect. I am lucky enough to have a 1961 vintage Gibson 335 with PAF humbuckers and this Artist version comes closer than anything else I've played to it. Great instrument.

My first hollow body…is awesome! Big rush fan and wanted to fanboy a bit of Alex lifeson with his es355 and it certainly fits the bill Get some nice mellow tones out of it and then with a flick of the pick up selector you can get some really crunchy riffs going As with all my other artist guitars and basses this is a Great guitar, quickly becoming my number one

Beautiful, Excellent Quality Guitar

I have my Cherry58 for almost a year now, I remember waiting patiently last year because of delivery delays due to lock down, then I finally got it and it was an absolute thing of Beauty, a well built semi-hollow guitar that sounded and played like the real deal, a real booby dazzler! almost a year later and I'm still in love with this guitar, Highly Recommend, thanks Artist Guitars.

Gibson 335 Killer

By: on 6 April 2021
I was amazed that Artist could produce a 335 copy as good as the Cherry 58. I have owned 3 Gibson 335's over the last 40 years including a 1969 Cherry. I cannot fault the finish and overall build quality of the Artist, and the pickups sound great. The price of a new Gibson 335 is ridiculous, and a huge amount of money to pay for not much more than it being made in USA, and having a Gibson Logo on the headstock. Rating is 5 stars.
