Artist CHERRY58TRD Hollow Body 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!
The Artist Cherry58 offers a perfect entry-level guitar for those wishing to begin their journey into the world of blues and Jazz. With the typical set-neck, this guitar is truly a "blues machine". Like the body, the neck is constructed of maple on an eco-friendly purpleheart fretboard. This wood is a fine substitute for rosewood which is now considered a highly endangered species and as a result is rarely if ever used in general guitar building these days. The 22 frets show off the 'Dot' shaped plastic inlays and when you add to the comfortable "C" shape neck the standard tune-o-Matic bridge and stop-bar tailpiece, you have a guitar that will not only feel great under your fingers but one that will sustain forever.
The Cherry58 sports chrome-covered Humbuckers with Alnico V magnets 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.
The Cherry58 awaits. Are you ready to take it on?
Here are the reasons why this guitar is great:
It has a Low String Action (all our guitars are set-up at the factory for the optimum beginner playing level). String action is the measurement from the top of the 12th fret to the bottom of the string. This is very important because a guitar with a high action is hard to play, a guitar with too low an action will buzz and sound bad. Artist Guitars are set up at the factory for the optimum level for a beginner.
Die-cast Machine Heads - This means your guitar will tune quicker, be more stable, and stay in tune longer.
We include a range of Support Materials including how to tune, how to read tab, basic chord shapes, and much more.
Our price is always Lower Than a Retail Store (often by 30-40%) we keep our prices low by only selling our own range of guitars direct from the factory. Our business is built on offering a great value guitar at a great price.
Artist Guitars has been designing guitars for over 10 years and during this time we have developed a great working relationship with our factories to constantly improve the quality and value - we know how to get a great value guitar at a truly unbeatable price!

Artist Cherry 58 Hollow Body Guitar and case 10/10By: Michael Haller on 28 November 2020I have owned many Gibson, Ibanez and Epiphone semi hollow guitars. I recently purchased a Cherry 58 and case from Artist Guitars. From my experience Artist Guitars are some of the best quality guitars available and my new 58 Cherry has exceeded expectations. Wow what a great guitar and case, I have paid more for a custom pickup in the past than this guitar and case cost I cannot fault it. Point for future improvement may be coil splitting especially at the bridge pickup. Well done once again I love this brand so much I would work for them if they were closer. I am a believer.

A thing of beautyBy: Chris Merry on 19 October 2020Reading and listening to the reviews I was expecting a lovely looking, feeling and playing guitar. And within a week of placing my order I am glad to say that my expectations have been met in all regards. The finish is superb (as far as I can see), and the neck is the most comfortable I have felt (comparing to an Korean Squier Strat from the late 80's and a 2015 Epiphone Les Paul 2). Still exploring the sound, but it does what it says on the tin - I love it. There's nothing that I can see from the perspective of quality that would suggest that this was half the price of it's nearest direct competitor. For the price you've got to be tempted - give it a go I say! PS many thanks to Welvin for the swift and honest responses to my email queries before making the purchase :)
Fantastic value and a beautiful guitar.By: Evan Miller on 16 October 2020Just got one a few days ago. A few slight tweaks to the truss rod and bridge height and it’s a sweet playing guitar. The finish is just perfect and the pickups are fantastic. Less than $500 AUD with a case. Just a fantastic guitar for a great price. I have several axes and this one I recon will quickly be my first-choice gig guitar. AAA+++
Awesome guitarBy: Greig on 18 September 2020Previously purchased a TC59 which I love and some pedals from Artist Guitars. Was putting off buying this guitar as I expected a long delay in delivery to Victoria during COVID. To my amazement I ordered it Wednesday morning and it arrived Friday afternoon. I was hoping the guitar was as good as the reviews as I could not decide between this and an Epiphone DOT. I ended up opting for the Artist. Guitar is awesome sounds amazing. Action is a bit high but easy to fix. Intonation not too bad out of the box. I am still trying to find an issue with the guitar but can’t find any real blemishes. Very happy with the purchase and will buy from Artist again. Hard Case is also nice.
