Artist ST62BKR Black Relic Electric Guitar

Ever wanted a guitar that looks like it's been on the road for 10+ years but still plays like brand new? This guitar has been pre-aged with the roadworn/relic effect. We've loaded it up with distressed diecast hardware including its locking tuners as well as an aged scratch guard. We've even ensured that the pickup covers + tone knobs look a bit beaten up for that real relic look.

This is one of Artist's signature model guitars. It boasts a modern two point tremolo system with a push in arm rather than the vintage screw-in design. This is an extremely nice guitar to play with great appointments all around. It features a comfortable '62 style neck with the Artist ST style headstock. This is also the first guitar in the Artist line up to feature the Artist "Wrangler" series single-coil pickups featuring Alnico 5 magnets. These were designed to replicate that great vintage tone so important to the "ST" style of guitar. Add to this the locking machine heads, a bone nut and medium jumbo frets and you have a great all-around axe.

The body is constructed using Solid Poplar with a Canadian maple neck and eco-rosewood fretboard.

Thank you so much for the feedback and we are stoked to hear that you liked the guitar. We still do not have plans on having a relic tele as of the moment but should we introduce one, we definitely will inform our customers.
