Artist AP1 Black Electric Guitar w/ Humbucker Pickups & Accessories

This Electric Guitar is used for various styles of music, most notably all the styles of Rock, Blues, and Metal. All of these guitars have a Set Neck for superior sustain and tone, unlike a lot of similarly priced guitars on the market that usually have a bolt-on neck.

Note: the 'Set Neck' design on any guitar type always gives superior SUSTAIN and TONE over a 'Bolt-on Neck' design... (This is why Metalheads the world over play only set neck guitars).

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)

It includes all accessories you need to get started:

  • AP1 Electric Guitar
  • Electronic Guitar Tuner
  • Strap
  • Bag
  • Lead
  • Picks

Some of this guitar's Great Features:

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

The body is made of Okumen, which is lighter than mahogany whilst still providing warmth, and it has a maple tiger stripe veneer for good looks. To top it off we've added the classic-look cream pickguard.

Two Wilkinson humbuckers for a great classic rock and metal tones!

It has a Tune-O-Matic style fixed bridge & die-cast machine heads that will help you stay in tune longer and make your tuning easier.

Artist AP1 guitar pack

By: on 28 July 2023
The Artist AP1 is styled on the iconic lp standard and it carries the same set neck, carved top design. How on earth do Artist Guitars manage to make such a decent guitar for the price? The first thing that strikes you about the AP1 is the weight or rather the lack of weight. The body is made of okumen, a lighter wood than mahogany but one which shares similar tonal characteristics. The fingerboard is eco rosewood and it is a deep dark shade of chocolate brown which really gives the guitar a look that would suggest a far more expensive instrument. The finish is flawless as is the binding on the neck and body, once again, I have seen and owned guitars that cost far more with cosmetic issues that just aren’t there on this guitar, perfect. Out of the box and tuned up, the AP1 plays very well, even the intonation is pretty close to spot on. Fretwork is very tidy too. The AP1 comes equipped with a set of Wilkinson humbuckers which give all the heft that you would expect from this style of guitar. Even the inlays are tidy and well seated. So, as a beginner guitar, I would say you will be hard pressed to find a better guitar for your money, this one would give a lot of other more expensive brands a run . I bought this one to mod and once again, the build quality means there won’t be too much work needed . Throw in a decent quality gig bag , strap, lead, strings and headstock tuner and you have everything you need to start your musical journey, save some money and give the Artist AP1 a try, excellent bang for the buck and the team at Artist Guitars have another winner on their hands.
