Artist TC59 Electric Guitar with Bullbucker Pickups

The Artist TC59 Electric guitar has certainly been a long time in the development phase but as the saying goes, ""good things come to those who wait"" and the TC59 is finally here and a ""good thing"" it certainly is!

Combining vintage styling with contemporary appointments, the TC59 is a worthy addition to the Artist Guitars brand offering everything that you could want in an electric guitar without the hefty price tag.

Sporting Artist's in-house designed and manufactured ""Bullbucker"" humbucking pickups, the range of sound possibilities that can be achieved from the '59 whether it be jazz, blues, rock or country, is quite astounding. The ""Bullbuckers"" are a fantastic pickup in their own right and are starting to make some very positive noise amongst guitar players but when they are combined with the TC59's American Ash body and the vintage style maple neck you have an absolutely outstanding guitar package. 

The modern bridge which allows for each string's intonation to be adjusted separately guarantees that you can set your guitar up to its optimal level - such a necessary and useful innovation.

To top it all off this wonderful little axe has locking machine heads which make sure that tuning is never far from perfect.

Check this little beauty out! You won't be disappointed!!!

After reading several reviews while waiting to purchase a new Fender Telecaster, I decided to order a TC59 Tele style guitar with Bullbucker pickups and give it a try. What’s to lose right? A bit over 300 bucks wasn’t going to break the bank I thought. The guitar arrived 2 days after I ordered it and I still can’t believe how good it is. Nicely set up straight out of the box, great range of tones, easy to play, solid and well built. Yes, it’s a little on the heavy side but so is a Les Paul! This is now my go-to studio guitar and I have cancelled the Fender order. Great product Artist Guitars - highly recommended!

Great Guitar

Everything as described in the demo video. Lovely guitar with great sound. As mentioned in the video it is very heavy. Fantastic value for money. Very well made.

Great sounding slab of wood

By: on 9 November 2021
This guitar in the style of a Telecaster is extremely well constructed. I mean heavy duty! The wood has beautiful grain and a high gloss lacquer finish. The neck is bolted on and contains a truss rod. The 2 bullbuckers with split coil option produce a variety of sound and the high density swamp ash body brings out great sustain. The intonation and string action was perfectly set up out of the box. Unpack, tune and play. It even has locking tuners, fender style. The delivery was prompt even though it was signalled that delays might occur. I am very happy with my purchase, I got a great sounding instrument at an incredible price point. I would buy the same again if it got lost or damaged during transport.

Great price for quality guitar

By: on 20 October 2021
Blown away by the quality at this price point for the TC59. It came setup ready to play out of the box, intonation and action were perfect. Highly recommend to everyone looking for a sub-$1000 guitar

Very impressed

By: on 15 August 2021
Arrived literally the day after ordering, set up is bang on, the tone is outstanding and I just cannot believe that a guitar of this quality can be made and shipped to my door for such a ridiculously low price. Although reading some of these reviews about the weight, i wonder if any of these guys moaning about them being heavy have ever done a hard days work in their life...cause they aint heavy at all. Just feel nice and solid..also brought a tweed tone 20r, and thats also completely blown me away. In fact ive been having so much fun, i didnt even notice that my missus left me about a week..ish..ago..oh well not to worry. thank you artist, youve outdone yourselves once again.

TC59 Are you kidding me

By: on 1 May 2021
Liked the look of the TC59 on site so brought the last one they had in stock , I'm a little hesitant to buy without having it in my hands first and seeing if I like the feel of it . I have brought a few guitars online including 3 harley bentons and various guitars off ali express . While they were just ok and needing a lot of setup this Artist TC59 guitar absolutely whips there arse's right out of the box. It needed minimal setup , the usual things like string height and intonation ..... every guitar I have ever owned new has needed this setup , but this TC59 was so close it only needed the most minor tweeks....... though I will have to polish the frets to make it perfect but there not to bad. The frets are level and I have the action real low (which is where I like it ) no fret buzz and no choking out when doing hard bends, the neck feels great with the satin finish , there is no fret sprout and they are finished really well except for the polish I will give them. Those pickups sound F**king amazing , honestly I am stunned I absolutely freekin love them. I thought my PRS pups were good....... these are better....way better..... and then you get the extra tonality from the coil split which adds another dimension to this guitar. The tuners feel great and are smooth and consistent across all of them and they tune precisely , and locking tuners to boot..... how can they produce such a good guitar at this price point ? . The body is made up of 3 pieces of wood that are matched so well I had to really look hard for the joins and the natural wood finish is beautiful. I have 2 small gripes which aren't really that big of a deal because I knew about one of them just from watching the reviews on the artist site....... the obvious one is the weight of this guitar ..... it's heavy really heavy but I expected that...... I don't gig I just play with a few friends on the weekends etc and I don't have to stand , but if I did I could see myself with neck and back problems in no time..... but I knew it was heavy from the reviews....... the only manufacturing fault I have found is that the nut is not centered on the neck it overhangs one side and is short the other....... when I do my first string change I will pop it out and reset it as it bugs me. Not a biggie at all and for this money I still think I ripped Artist guitars off and got the best deal ever on any guitar I have ever brought including my PRS. I now trust Artist guitars 100% and will probably buy another guitar from them a little further down the line..... That grunge master looks pretty good but there always out of stock hence why I brought the TC59...... If they made this guitar with lighter wood I would buy another one no question. If you are looking to buy another guitar or even your first guitar I would recommend Artist guitars, there well priced and if you find you don't like what you brought you can send it back no questions asked. I can honestly say this is one guitar I will never sell , Thanks Artist guitars I am truly blown away with the quality of this instrument and the overall finish and play ability right out of the box...... stunning.....just stunning .

This Guitar is way better than anything else that

By: on 12 March 2021
The quality and sound of this guitar is better than anything else on the entire guitar market for under 1,100 dollars! This thing is bloody amazing. It is way more versatile than a fender tele, Sounds absolutely fantastic the neck is pure bliss to play and it sure is a looker. Honestly buy this guitar, Wayyy better than and Ibanez or Squire in this price range. I'd say it beats my $465 Ibanez GRG131DX in every way. 10/10 absolutely nothing wrong with this guitar, Go for it unless you are a stingy brand elitist

The neck feels like the holy grail. It’s just made to be. What a beautiful guitar. Sounds full and clear. Love it to bits.

A near flawless bargain

By: on 20 November 2020
This is definitely not a guitar that I would stylistically gravitate towards but I got one anyway and genuinely cannot believe the value. I typically play extreme metal stuff and this thing can surprisingly handle it very well. It feels so easy to play and honestly stands up next to my most expensive guitars. The only issue is it's weight if you aren't used to heavy guitars, but for me, it isn't a problem. If you want a high end feeling and sounding guitar without the high end price tag, do yourself a favor and get one of these now!
