Artist TC59TSB Electric Guitar with Bullbucker Pickups
The Artist TC59 Electric guitar has certainly been a long time in the development phase but as the saying goes, "good things come to those who wait" and the TC59 is finally here and a "good thing" it certainly is!
Combining vintage styling with contemporary appointments, the TC59 is a worthy addition to the Artist Guitars brand offering everything that you could want in an electric guitar without the hefty price tag.
Sporting Artist's in-house designed and manufactured "Bull Bucker" humbucking pickups, the range of sound possibilities that can be achieved from the '59 whether it be jazz, blues, rock or country, is quite astounding. The "Bullbuckers" is a fantastic pickup in their own right and are starting to make some very positive noise amongst guitar players but when they are combined with the TC59's American Ash body and the vintage style maple neck you have an absolutely outstanding guitar package.
The modern bridge which allows for each string's intonation to be adjusted separately guarantees that you can set your guitar up to its optimal level - such a necessary and useful innovation.
To top it all off this wonderful little axe has locking machine heads that make sure that tuning is never far from perfect.
Check this little beauty out! It is well worth the effort - you won't be disappointed!!!

Shoulder killerBeautiful instrument, I really like the 'burst colours and Swamp Ash grain. Pups are great, not a whole lot of split coil difference (to my ear) but it is there. Neck feels great, intonation out of the box was flat on E/A/D - easy fix. But I have to mention the weight. Mine weighs in at 4.9Kilos and even with a padded strap kills my should after 15 minutes. Best as a sit-down player... The locking tuners have one downside, they get in the way of hanging in the Hercules wall hanger, so this has to sit in the floor stand. Over all I give it a 10/10 for value. Oh, and delivery was a week ahead of ETA! (To FNQ)

TelecasterWhat a great guitar. Looks a treat. Plays and sounds great. For a fraction of the price. I have purchased several guitars ( and a mandolin ) from Artist Guitars and would recommend them to anyone.

Thank you so much for all the support!
Great GuitarI agree with all the best reviews for this TC59TSB guitar. Every aspect that goes towards making a great guitar is represented in this model. Brilliant neck, playing action, excellent pickups, superb finish. Yes a true beauty.
I’m impressed!What a great guitar, never mind the fact it costs less than $300. I had read other reviews and thought I’d give one a try. I would have no hesitation doing any gig with this guitar as it came from the factory. When I could be bothered, I will lower the action at the nut a little, but it’s perfectly playable as it is. My only comments, which are not really criticisms are. It is a fair old lump of wood, I think it’s heavier than any other guitar I own. Given the weight, I probably wouldn’t want to wear it for more than a 40 minute set at a time. The maple neck wood is not the nicest piece of maple I’ve ever seen, it doesn’t have any knots, it’s just a bit grainy. The bridge saddles sit very high, the string action at the 12th fret is exactly how I like it though, so I’m not sure if this was intentional, but I may look at changing the neck angle at some stage, just to lower the saddles closer to the bridge. The pickups are fantastic, the coil split is good too, the locking machine heads work as expected, it holds tune very well and the fret work I can’t find fault with. Wether you’re an experienced player or a complete beginner, I definitely recommend this guitar.
