Artist STHL Black Left Handed Electric Guitar + Humbucker

This Left Handed Electric Guitar is perfect for fast playing rock, metal, punk, hardcore, blues, fusion/ funk and contemporary. This guitar is designed to do it all.

If you're someone who wants to play a bit of metal like Pantera, Van Halen or Metallica, but then wants to play rock like Nickelback or Cold Play, and then wants also to do a bit of Jimi Hendrix... basically, you looking for a guitar that can do a bit of everything,  then this electric guitar is the right choice for you.

This guitar gives you a clean sound as well as much distortion as you can handle from your amp or effect pedals without any extra unwanted noise and squeals.

The STH electric guitar is a great way to be introduced into the world of rock, funk and blues as it is a beginners copy of a classic guitar that has done countless albums, tours and made many a guitar icon.
The contoured body provides great comfort in playing which has made this type of guitar a favourite with many players since the 1950s

It has tremolo bridge that is not floating, or lock tuning like a Floyd Rose, but rather it is designed for a small amount of vibrato so locking nuts are not necessary. Great Quality and Wilkinson Pickups make this guitar a step above the rest. This is a real musical instrument, not a toy, designed by our local luthier's and players. We also sell these as a package with an amplifier if you need.

This is a full size guitar perfect for Adults, recommended for children over the age of 12 (or younger if your child is strong and taller than 1.2m)

Some of its great features

It has an eco-rosewood fingerboard and maple neck, a 2 way truss rod (which means you can adjust the neck up or down)

Wilkinson pickups mean you will get a much better sound than a "standard" pickup. The STH comes with a Humbucker and 2 single coil pickups. This gives you more versatility in the styles you can play.  Humbucker pickups allow you to produce better distorted tones.

 It has a classic strat style bridge (so you can do classic style tremolo and string bends) & die-cast machine heads that will help you stay in tune longer and make your tuning easier.

 We include a range of support materials from how to tune, how to read tab, basic chord shapes and more.

Great Package, Awesome Price

By: on 1 August 2021
Honestly didn’t expect a good guitar for this price point but surprisingly received a great guitar. The set up is perfect and the finish is as good as any so called big brands I’ve owned. The added bonus of the extra bits and pieces make it a no brainer in my opinion. Whether you’re just starting out or been playing for 35 yrs I’m sure you’ll enjoy this little beauty as much as I have.

Neck Kisses, Cheap as Chips and a Humbucker!

By: on 21 May 2021
I've been playing guitar for 30 years and have never owned a Stratocaster style guitar with a humbucker. Whilst Artist might market this guitar as a good beginner guitar I've got it happily sitting next to my US made Fender American Professional II. Shipping was fast, neck was straight and the only setup I did was slightly adjust the string height and intonation on 2 strings. All in all it’s just so much guitar for the money. The humbucker on the STHL allows me to get much fatter hard rock to metal tones than any of my other Strat style guitars with single coils in the bridge. I'm really most happy with the neck; it feels great, fret ends are smooth, it’s really thin and I love the smooth satin finish on the back. The guitar is super light too which I appreciate as I play standing up.

Review for an STHL purchased at discount, advertis

By: on 11 February 2021
All I wanted was a LH S Type body to put the neck and various bits from a RH guitar I have. Couldn't find a reasonably priced body. I was considering whether to buy one of those $150 kits or the $199 Artist STHL purely to harvest the body for my project. Then I see Artist listing a half priced STHL noted as "Customer returned due to wiring issue - guitar requires repair before use with an amp" - - - - - - - - - - Perfect. What do I care about the wiring? I've found my body donor. I place my order on the Friday before the Australia Day holiday and received it in Melbourne on the following Thursday, exactly as predicted. it came with the gig bag and all accessories listed in the ad. - - - - - - - - - - After I checked out the guitar for about 15 minutes, I was not too happy. There was absolutely nothing wrong with the guitar. I found no wiring issue. I got sound on all 5 switch positions. Volume and Tone controls worked as they should. Neck profile was a very comfortable slightly more filled out modern C shape. Fret ends were neat and well dressed. Action and intonation set well. Guitar was a good weight, not too heavy or overly light. Days later, I pick it and it's keeping its tune. - - - - - - - - - - Yep, not happy. I can't strip this guitar out. It's too good to be cannibalised. My righty neck is bodyless again and I've got myself ANOTHER black LH S Type. Thanks a lot Artist! Call me when you have one with a snapped neck. I'm too much of a softy, and can't take a perfectly good guitar out to the slaughterhouse. I should have known after my other Artist Guitars purchases, that this would end up too good for what I wanted. If I was buying this at full price with the intention of keeping and using it I would have been very happy with my purchase.

We appreciate your feedback on the customer-returned STHL left-handed guitar as it means a lot to us. I have sent you an email regarding possible victims for the "slaughterhouse". Feel free to reach out if you have any other questions or concerns. Cheers!

An absolute pleasure to deal with

By: on 9 February 2021
This is my second purchase from Artist and they are an absolute pleasure to deal with, nothing is asking to much from this company May not be the " brand " name of other guitars but they certinally are not the price either and Artist guitars play exceptionally well regardless of your experience. You wont regret the experience of buying an Artist guitar.
