Artist CHERRY58 TRD Hollow Body Electric Guitar
Artist CHERRY58TRD Hollow Body Electric Guitar
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 when you add to the comfortable ""C"" shape neck the standard tune-o-Matic bridge and stop-bar tailpiece, you have a guitar that will not only feel great under your fingers but one that will sustain forever.
The Cherry58 sports chrome-covered Humbuckers with Alnico V magnets 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 Cherry58 awaits. Are you ready to take it on?
Here are the reasons why this guitar is great:
It has a Low String Action (all our guitars are set-up at the factory for the optimum beginner playing level). String action is the measurement from the top of the 12th fret to the bottom of the string. This is very important because a guitar with a high action is hard to play, a guitar with too low an action will buzz and sound bad. Artist Guitars are set up at the factory for the optimum level for a beginner.
Die-cast Machine Heads - This means your guitar will tune quicker, be more stable, and stay in tune longer.
We include a range of Support Materials including how to tune, how to read tab, basic chord shapes, and much more.
Our price is always Lower Than a Retail Store (often by 30-40%) we keep our prices low by only selling our own range of guitars direct from the factory. Our business is built on offering a great value guitar at a great price.

Gibson 335 KillerBy: Rob Bishop on 6 April 2021I 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.
