Artist SS87 Deluxe Electric Guitar with Floyd Rose
The Artist SS87 is a premium-grade prog-monster, for the player looking for the ultimate shredders tool! With various high-spec features this guitar packs a serious amount of quality into its small price-tag.
The Basswood body has an Oiled Mahogany finish, a carved arm-contour and super-high neck access. The carved ergonomic Maple neck is comfortable, fast and smooth in the hand, and features 24 Jumbo frets over a 25.5” scale length on an Eco-Rosewood fretboard. This classy, modern styling is tied together with Shark-Tooth inlays and premium gold hardware, and a very versatile H/S/H pickup configuration.
Our covered Matte Bullbuckers are in both the bridge and neck positions, and with the added flexibility of our Wrangler middle pickup and a 5-way switch you have the choice of any tone you could wish for at your fingertips. The switch and simple volume and tone controls are strategically placed for easy adjustability whilst playing, so you can switch from soaring leads back to a thumping rhythm tone in a flash.
The SS87 also features a genuine Floyd-Rose Tremolo system, so you can divebomb and scream away on those high-gain whammy bends all day; the gold-plated locking nut will ensure you’re always in tune! The Floyd Rose tremolo is a powerful tool in the right hands, and we have some fantastic resources available on our website, if you’re not familiar with this style of trem reach out to our staff!
This guitar comes factory-strung with D'Addario 9–42 gauge strings
