Artist BCHY58L Black Left Handed Semi Hollow 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!

This is a great sounding instrument and aesthetically beautiful at the same time. It features a 3 piece Maple neck with an Ebony Fretboard. The 22 frets show off the 'Block' shaped plastic inlays and when you add to the comfortable "C" shape neck and the wheeled tune-o-matic bridge,  you have a guitar that will not only feel great under your fingers but one that will sustain forever.

The Left-Handed BCHY58L sports our Signature Bullbucker Individual Coil Splitting pickups 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.

BCHY58L

I bought one of these black beauties for xmas '19. After having it for 6 months I have nothing bad to say about it. The thing looks gorgeous and I actually have it hanging on the wall, I love the Translucent Black colour! (although it looks like they are now Gloss Black) Most importantly, the guitar plays and sounds as nice as my Gretsch, which cost 3 times as much, and I play it just as often. I've replaced the strings after 6months and have adjusted the action to my liking and reset the intonation with a minor adjustment. These tasks were simple and could be done by anyone as the hardware is straight forward. I love it.
