Artist Black58DLX Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar w/ Bullbucker Pickups

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 Maple neck with an Ebony Fretboard. The 22 frets show off the 'Block' shaped plastic inlays on the comfortable "C" shape neck, and the brass-saddle bridge and locking stop-bar tailpiece come together for a guitar that will not only feel great under your fingers but one that will sustain forever.

The BLACK58DLX 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, and the push/pull coil-splitting on both pickups is an extremely useful and versatile addition offering single-coil or humbucker configurations. 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.

Amazing guitar

By: on 8 May 2024
I've had this guitar for almost two years now, and play it often. The build quality is outstanding, the finish is perfect, and the hardware is as good as anything you would find on a much more expensive guitar. However I always felt that the tones it produced were less than wonderful, particularly the tonal variation. No matter what I did it seemed, the tones came out sounding pretty middle of the road ordinary. Recently I replaced the pickups, and the difference was astonishing. The tones the guitar produces now are exceptional and the variety is amazing. Switching to single coil mode gives bright clear tones, in humbucker mode the tones are rich and full, like liquid velvet. It has now become my almost favourite guitar, and I pick it up much more often now. It wasn't a cheap conversion ($180 altogether), but worth every cent in my humble opinion. Four stars for being such a great guitar, minus one for the ordinary pickups.

Black 58DLX Semi Hollow

By: on 17 March 2024
Have owned this 58DLX for nearly three weeks and cannot fault this guitar.It continues to amaze me with the playability,tone, quality of presentation, Bullbucker pick ups, tuning stability and the list goes on.Once I had the 58DLX home,a quick check of the guitar and a new set of strings stretched and tuned,there was nothing else to do other than start playing, intonation was nearly spot on and string action was to my liking.Artist Guitars continue to produce a quality product at an amazing price.The 58DLX is my fourth guitar from Artist's range (including a Bass) but I still have space on my music room wall for two more.

Artist Black58DLX Semi-Hollow Guitar

By: on 20 December 2023
I have purchased the Cherry 58 a couple of years ago, and was pleasantly surprised and happy with the guitar overall. However on receiving this Black58DLX model, I found it impossible to set intonation, as the bridge ran out of travel to get the correct intonation at 12th fret. I was also disappointed at the large amount of visible wiring through the F Hole, much more than their advertising photo shows. The intonation problem was the deal breaker for me. However I found that Artist guitars was absolutely fantastic in arranging the return shipping and a prompt full refund, at no cost to me. I would say that I just was unlucky enough to get a poor build that got past there quality control. At the end of the day, I was very impressed with the integrity of this company, and highly recommend them I give 1 star for that particular guitar, and 5 star for the way that Artist responded to the issue.

I get serious GAS when I look at your site...This gutiar is awesome. The bullbuckers, as always, are superb and don't need replacing. I guess my only issue, after buying 3 other Artist guitars is ( are?) the bridges. Considering the price this is not a biggie. I've replaced the bridges on 2 of these and, at about $60 for a seriously proffessional bridge. Its not a big deal. I love roller bridge pieces. They stay in tune beautifully. The locking tuners that came with this gutiar never cease to amaze me. Perfect. I'd like to know where to source these as I would put them on some of my other guitars. My whole experience with Artist has me thinking in a new paradigm. I see these Gibsons etc with crazy prices and return to the Artist site looking to add to my collection. I like a guitar that's practical and works in the real world at a price that is realistic. These are it!

‘You paid what?!’ (and other statements of disbeli

By: on 16 December 2022
The Artist Black58DXL is first Artist guitar I have bought. I have not owned a 335-style guitar before although I had played a friend’s Epiphone 335 in the now distant past. Really, I have no point of comparison so I will not refer to other guitars in this review but will address the merits of the guitar. Before buying the guitar, I watched many reviews. All of the reviews spoke highly of the guitar and claimed it punched above its weight in terms of quality for the price. Before receiving the guitar, I was sceptical but I can now whole-heartedly agree. It is amazing that they can be made for the price. When I showed my wife the guitar and said what I had paid then showed her other guitars on the Artist site, she was amazed and said that, at those prices, I could buy one a month. I am not sure if she was serious but when my next one (a surf green Mustang-esque guitar for an incomprehensible $250!) arrives at the end of January, I guess I will find out. Wish me luck… Besides the price, there is much to like about the guitar. What do l like about the Black58DXL and what makes it remarkable value? The pickups are good and produce a nice range of tones. You could swap them out if you wanted but I am keeping them as they are. The push-pull pots to change between humbucker (Bullbucker) and single coils make it versatile. The frets are smooth with no edges and the overall finish quality is great making it feel good to play. I had to slightly adjust the truss rod at first but with the locking tuners and the bridge setup, it played well thereafter. It plays nicely with pedals—I had been mostly been playing a seven string tuned to G with a lot of effects—and it was really fun to hear how it sounded with my gear not to mention how good light strings felt. I have since changed the strings it shipped with and it really sings. Overall, with this guitar you get more than you pay for. I am thinking Artist needs a frequent flyer card because, based on the quality of this guitar (and hopefully the Falcon Deluxe when it arrives), I intend to buy a few more.

Hollow body

Wow is all i can say. After having a few issues with the black 58IIx i returned it and was given the Black58DLX. What a cool instrument. Apart from lubing the nut this guitar has been perfect straight out of the box. Compared it to my mates Gretch and it lost nothing in all the songs we played. If anything, the Gretch was a little muddier. The service from the artist showroom was second to none dealing with the 2 guitars i had issues with. 5 stars all the way

Great guitar right out of the box. Plays great , sounds great. Finish and build quality of a much more expensive guitar. All works great , tune and play. Possibly lower nut a bit and polish frets otherwise beautiful guitar , I can’t speak highly of it. I build and mod guitars this has all the goods I’d add myself, for the price can’t beat it.
