On a Budget but not budget

Cant get over how well made it feels for a 300$ guitar, sounds great with a muff pedal or just clean through a vox amp. Well stoked

Grungemaster A+

By: on 20 June 2023
Purchased this as a slight gamble and am so glad I did. I'm a student on a budget and was drawn in by the look and price point of the guitar, after reading and watching a few reviews I made the leap to purchase. Have been nothing but impressed by this guitar and can not argue with it in the slightest. From purchasing to receiving the product was only four days and have been enjoying playing it ever since. Holds its tune well and sounds great. Get more than what you pay for here. Cheers, Chad.

Artist GM1VSB Grungemaster Electric Guitar Vintage

This is a very, very nice guitar... also nice that the body is slightly smaller than a Jazzmaster or Jaguar, and fits a standard sized/strat case. I am particularly impressed with quality of the neck, and the pickups have great tone... overall, this represents unbelievable value for money. I'm now considering buying an Artist Cherry58 and an Artist TL69BND Thinline.

Top Quality Guitar

By: on 10 October 2022
Could not wait for there to be stock of the LP60pro, so pulled the trigger and bought this my 4th Artist guitar just because of the shape and the P90s. I do not regret it one bit...Unboxed it, 3 strings were slightly out of tune, which was surprising as would not expect any strings to be in tune. tuned up and never looked back, not further setup needed. hugely impressed with this guitar which is extremely versatile, the P90's are superb, beautiful airy woody tonality you would expect from a good single coil pickup embedded in a plump low end, there is some noise with the volume turned up but that comes with the single coil territory. The attention to detail is amazing and for the price this guitar is unbeatable, thanks Artist Guitars.

Must admit this was a spontaneous purchase buy, butI just cant put this guitar aside. Another gem to my Artist collection. I love playing it. Sounds great and plays well to my beginner ear. As always such outstanding service and fast turnaround. A example of great cost and quality. Thanks Artist once again.

Can't beat it!!

By: on 3 July 2022
So.... during lock down I decided to deal with my GAS and prune the tree!!! So I got rid of a lot of gear. This left me wondering ...."Maybe I should have kept at least 1 electric for recording and playing around with"...... so I purchased this little beauty. Well.... in the right hands you would be hard pressed to tell the difference bewteen this and $$$$$ more. For the price, I am not sure you'r beat this bad boy!! Exceptional value for beginners and great for pros as a 2nd guitar/back up. As always Artist Guitars service was excellent. Was gonna switch out the pups.... but nah.... these are more than good enough!! If you're thinking...... DON'T.... just get it!!!

Unleash your inner Grunge Icon

I'm really impressed with this guitar, straight out of the box the set up was great and she had just such a nice overall finish, it's a guitar that just screams to be picked up and played and she sounds really good, Why spend more for a different name on the headstock? I think the Grungemaster is well worth your money.

Great looking and playing instrument, Unfortunately had to send mine back as the pickups were overly noisy but bare in mind normally p90 style pickups are fatter than single coils so they will generate a bit more of a hum. Otherwise really nice guitar to play neck was a little thin for me but if that doesnt bother you then you will have a great time.

great guitar,some small issues

By: on 20 February 2022
The GrungeMaster is a great looking and great sounding guitar,love that Retro look and played through the Artist 20 watt Tweed Amp will take you down a trip to the 60s,one issue was the intonation,it was reading flat on nearly every string and I actually had to turn the bridge around to shorten the string length as I ran out of screw adjustment,no big deal but perhaps a little more attention to string length would be good, I have been a professional set up guy for many years and that was the only problem I encountered,cheers Vic Manuel
