Artist STH Electric Guitar with Humbucker Pickup

If you're someone who wants to play a bit of metal like Pantera, Van Halen or Metallica, but then wants to play rock like Arctic Monkeys or Cold Play, and then wants also to do a bit of Jimi Hendrix... basically, you're looking for a guitar that can do a bit of everything, then this electric guitar is the right choice for you.

This guitar gives you a clean sound as well as much distortion as you can handle from your amp or effect pedals without any extra unwanted noise and squeals.

The STH electric guitar is a great way to be introduced into the world of rock, funk and blues as it is a beginner's copy of a classic guitar that has done countless albums, tours and made many a guitar icon. The contoured body provides great comfort in playing which has made this type of guitar a favourite with many players.

It has a tremolo bridge that is not floating or lock tuning like a Floyd Rose, but rather it is designed for a small amount of vibrato so locking nuts are not necessary. Great Quality and Wilkinson Pickups make this guitar a step above the rest. This is a real musical instrument not a toy, designed by our local luthiers and players. We also sell these as a package with an amplifier if you need.

This is a full-size guitar perfect for Adults, recommended for children over the age of 12 (or younger if your child is strong and taller than 1.2m)

It includes all accessories you need to get started:

  • STH Electric Guitar
  • Electronic Guitar Tuner
  • Strap
  • Bag
  • Lead
  • Picks

Some of this guitar's great features

It has an Eco-rosewood fingerboard and maple neck, a 2-way truss rod (which means you can adjust the neck up or down)

Wilkinson pickups (ceramic) mean you will get a much better sound than a """"standard"""" pickup. The STH comes with a Humbucker and 2 single-coil pickups. This gives you more versatility in the styles you can play. Humbucker pickups allow you to produce better distorted tones.

It has a classic bridge (so you can do classic style tremolo and string bends) & die-cast machine heads that will help you stay in tune longer and make your tuning easier.

We include a range of support materials from how to tune, how to read tab, basic chord shapes and more.

Thank you for the review and we're happy to hear that you're satisfied with your purchase

Unbelievable value for money!

Got a second hand one of these off the site and I can't believe how good it is for the money. This easily feels better and is far more stable than the similar low range guitars from named brands which also cost almost double the price. I wish this was my first guitar and would highly recommend it to anyone looking at starting to learn guitar or for parents looking to buy their kid a first guitar. Honestly, even if you've been playing for over a decade like me, treat yourself to one of these!
