Artist ST62IIBK Modern Black Electric Guitar

The Artist ST62II is one of the signature guitars here at Artist. Featuring Artist Wrangler single-coil pickups, which feature Alnico 5 magnets for a clear, balanced sound in the neck and middle positions, as well as an Artist Bullbucker in the bridge. With this HSS pickup configuration, the versatility of this guitar can't be ignored.

With a comfortable '62 style, Canadian Maple neck, it plays beautifully. The fretboard is made from a lightly roasted Maple, with 22 medium-jumbo frets and DOT inlays. The Poplar body in this classic shape and premium features such as a two-pole modern tremolo and locking machine heads really makes this guitar sound just as good as it looks.

Artist black modern st

By: on 1 April 2022
I was trying to choose between the modern and the relic and was presented with the opportunity to get a returned guitar. This neck is fantastic,I would have chosen relic but for the fret board. I prefer maple. Pickups are really good and although I probably wouldn't go for a humbucker usually this is far more useful than a squier California that I own, difference in output is not overly noticeable ,tonally yes but not volume. Finish excellent and somehow the pickguard colour suits better than my white st. Chalk up another win for artist

Killer guitar

All pro, no con. If you're after a modern Strat, this one's for you. The only thing I did to make it play how I want is drop the bridge trem from 3mm to 2mm so the action is how I like it- lower than Barry White's vocal range. Took me about 45 seconds. While this guitar won't be replacing any of my high end guitars, it's such a treat to play and that neck is probably the second best I own- can't beat my actual Strat but this is close. So close. The only thing about this guitar that would make it nicer is to match the pickup plastic colour to the guard but that's just really nitpicky considering how great it sounds and plays.

Great Guitar

Had this for a few weeks now and my other guitars are being neglected. Loads of fun to play. Well built and feels great in the hands. The neck took me a few days to get totally used to but no complaints here. It's my first guitar from Artist and the quality is really outstanding. Very happy.
