Another Amazing Guitar from Artist

By: on 20 June 2024
It's heavy, has a wide neck and sounds great. I love it. - Anyone want to buy a Fender Precision?

This bass is a bloody ripper!

"At this price point you'd be hard pressed to find better value in the 5 string bass market", declared Michael Carpenter in the Artist video review. Well, he is bang on! This bass is outstanding, and I have to say that once again, Artist have it it out of the park. I am struggling to fault the guitar in any department. The Ash wood grain in mine is beautiful. The finish is superb. The action and intonation is spot on. And it sounds great. This is my 3rd Artist guitar and I really don't know how they can make these guitars that are, in my opinion, equal to whatever the big names produce for about 10 times the price. I already have another Artist guitar ordered, I'm so convinced. I am an amateur luthier but unfortunately (?) these guitars are so good I spend more time playing than in the shed.

artist vhyb5 bass guitar review

By: on 20 September 2020
i initially went to buy a cheap, working 5 string bass for some home recording, something that would produce a consistent tone for a recording. imagine my delight when this guitar showed up! it plays beautifully, it has a marvellous tone, the electrics work just like they're supposed to, and the neck is uniform everywhere, every note the same. this isn't what i thought i'd bought. this is a much better class of instrument altogether, i wouldn't have believed i could buy a guitar of this quality for the money i paid. outstanding work, artist guitars! well done. i am already recommending your guitars to people. thank you.
