About This Artist EB2 Full Size Single Pickup Electric Guitar - Black

Don't let our use of the word Budget put you off! Some famous musicians have often used guitars with just a single humbucker pickup in the bridge position.  They include Billie Joe Armstrong, Keith Urban, Bob Marley and Peter Frampton just to name a few.  Their simplicity is their strength. It also helps to keep costs down to make these guitars ideal for anyone on a tight budget.

This is a full size electric guitar based on our more popular STHBK.  It's electronics are simple, a single humbucker and a single volume pot.

There are no accessories included with this guitar.

Bought this to learn how to play. Plays well and is an ideal starter guitar. It looks good enough to sit in the corner of the lounge; even my wife thinks it looks cool. The amp is also perfect for learning, with a headphone jack so you can practice in semi-silence. Artist Guitars even sent some useful links and advice on learning to play, thanks Guys!

Great value guitar

Bought this guitar to keep me amused while I wait my turn for one of the ST kits I'm hand decorating and building - family first! This is fantastic value. Quality of materials is great, needed minor set up changes, but easy to set low action and get perfect tuning on open and 12th frets. The single pick up sounds great for the price through my small Marshall amp. This guitar compares very well with my 1970 Gibson SG. Some new Elixir strings will complete a great deal.

Just bought one of these guitars. For the price this is a good little guitar. No need for setup. All I had to do was unpack it and tune it up. Action was nice and low and neck is smooth. Very playable.

Great value

Nice, simple strat copy with one pick-up. Stays in tune. Reasonable tone etc. Amazingly good value and great service!

EB2 - Not a bad little axe for the price!

The EB2 single humbucker Strat is probably the most straight forward low cost guitar one would ever likely purchase. Whilst the overall playability of the guitar would be improved with a fresh new set of strings and a truss rod/intonation setup, this is just minor tweaking which is often required with most brand new guitars anyway. On the guitar I received, the frets were clean and didn't seem to have any oxidisation (as mentioned in a previous review for this product). The frets themselves seem to sit a bit higher than what I'm used to. However, I don't necessarily view this as a negative as it doesn't affect my ability or enjoyment to play this guitar. Again, I think a fresh set of strings, a quick setup, and a few months to "break it in" (so to speak) would most likely address any little nagging "playability" issues which may be a problem for some. I'm normally used to playing a Monterey Hollow-Body dual humbucker electric as my main guitar which has a slightly wider neck (usually set only on the bridge HB pickup position for that crunchy tone found on the likes of punk, metal, and some country rock/Americana recordings). I initially felt as if I was playing a kids guitar with the light weight feel and the slimmer neck. But it felt good to play after getting used the fact that it was a different guitar to the one I've mainly been playing for the past 10 years. The EB2 is light-weight but solid. The main drawing point for buying this guitar was the simplicity of having just the single HB pickup on the bridge and and the one volume knob featured in a Strat-style guitar for ease of access and customisation. This guitar is essentially set on the very specific tone I pretty much always use. Therefore, having the EB2 on hand is a no brainer for me. I've now bought a few products from Artist Guitars (pedals mainly), and I am yet to be disappointed.
