Artist TL69BND Thinline Electric Guitar Butterscotch Blonde

The TL69BND Thinline Electric is here. It combines the elegant looks of the TC59 but with a thinline body and a single f-hole on its Mahogany Body. The guitar also comes loaded with our Bullbucker pickups. It's also lighter than the TC59, which is awesome!

Sporting Artist's in-house designed and manufactured ""Bullbucker"" humbucking pickups, the range of sound possibilities that can be achieved from the '69 whether it be jazz, blues, rock or country, is quite astounding. The ""Bullbuckers"" are fantastic pickups in their own right and are starting to make some very positive noise amongst guitar players. These ""Bullbuckers"" also coil-split using a push-pull pot for extra tonal versatility.

The vintage style maple neck is very comfortable, and 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.

Disclaimer- old guy review

By: on 6 April 2022
I pre ordered my TL69BND knowing I wouldn't receive it before Christmas. The guys packaged and sent my guitar to an island in Far North Queensland and it arrived 3 days befor Santa. Awesome effort. I thought I would do my review after a month or so but when you're retired and you have one of these guitars close at hand time gets away. It's great to look at and great in the hand. Love the neck profile, it's extremely comfortable for playing hours on end. Frets are good with no grit or sharp ends. The pickups are great and the split coil function is very usable. I went over this guitar with a fine tooth comb and couldn't find any faults. Both volume and tone have plenty of range. Even played unplugged the guitar has decent acoustics. The only thing to mention but not a criticism is the colour is more on the yellow side as opposed to the butterscotch side. A joy to play. Kind Regards Graham

Definitely worth the $

In all honesty this guitar is worth every penny. The overall fit and finish is really good - very little to complain about here. I was worried it might be neck heavy - it's not. It's not perfect, but neither are some of the guitars I have paid over a grand for. The fret 'ends' are really well finished - the frets need polishing (easy enough to do). I would call the neck a medium profile - not too thick and definitely not a thin neck. These guys (Artist Guitars) are a fantastic company who really try to keep the consumer happy - my son and I both own one or more of their brand electric guitars (I haven't tried their acoustics yet). Regards :-)

It the TL69BND a good guitar?

By: on 27 February 2022
I grabbed this as a customer return, the F hole had a very minor paint problem which I fixed in 2 minutes with a light sanding. It had other issues like grinding frets, had the wrong switch tip, and the neck heel had to be sanded to change the angle. It's an easy job, so I did it. Also, the bridge plate is off by maybe half a degree. It doesn't affect playability, so I'll leave it as it is. This is the 15th Artist I bought in 4 years, and I'm perfectly happy the way this is (now). You play this one and you won't need any other guitar. Lightweight, well balanced, fantastic pickups. A bit more attention with QC guys, I had fun fixing the issues, but it would be better not having the issues. So, the answer to the question is, YES, it is a good guitar.

Remarkable quality

By: on 14 January 2022
I've had this guitar for 2 weeks now and I am very happy with the quality and craftsmanship. I don't know of any other guitar for under $300 where you can get a bone nut, locking tuners, Splitable humbuckers, and a neck and body made of quality materials. The TL69BND is punching way above it's weight for the price. Now to temper that enthusiasm I'll acknowledge that there were 1 or 2 downsides. The frets were scratchy as hell but I can polish them off that's no trouble. The pickup selector has a different plastic top than in the photos on Artists web site. The Artist web site photos show a more traditional club style or "leggo man head" selector switch whereas my guitar has a more traditional Strat style upturned funnel style head which is no big deal but when you notice small things like that it makes you think "What else has changed or been swapped around"? My only concern is that people will buy this expecting to get classic Telecaster sounds out of it as well as humbucker tones... in reality it's a jack of all trades guitar where the humbucker sounds are more convincing than the single coil tele sound. Don't get me wrong the split coil does work but traditional Telecaster pickups are a completely separate beast again and anyone hoping to get an authentic tele bridge pickup sound might feel a little disappointed. But then again why are you getting this guitar if your after only one sound. I did a review on Youtube to explain this all here
