Artist BCHYL BLACKCHERRY Left Handed Black Semi Hollow Electric Guitar

We listened to the surveys and now here it is! The Left Handed Blackcherry!

Based on our popular Cherry58 model, the Artist Black Cherry was developed as a direct result of feedback from our customers looking for something with a little more versatility than the Cherry58. 

With the typical set-neck that typifies most 335 style guitars, this is a great instrument for anybody looking for something unique in their sound. Like the body, the neck is constructed of maple on an eco-friendly purpleheart fretboard. This wood is a fine substitute for rosewood which is now considered a highly endangered species and as a result is rarely if ever used in general guitar building these days.

The Artist BlackCherry is an extremely versatile guitar that will be very responsive under your fingers. Sporting chrome-covered Humbuckers with Alnico V magnets the Black Cherry offers a variety of tonal options from the warm throaty tones synonymous with a good neck pickup to the clean biting sound when you switch to the bridge pickup. Set your toggle switch in between neck and bridge pickup and you get that wonderful almost out of phase sound, so this is an extremely versatile guitar that will be very responsive under your fingers. The addition of push-pull pot, coil-splitting on both pickups is an extremely useful and versatile addition offering a variety of sonic options on this wonderful instrument.

Blackcherry left hander is excellent value for mon

By: Martin on 24 November 2019
A gorgeous 335 Gibson style guitar for left handers, reminiscent of B.B. Kings black Lucille. Beautifully finished, no sharp edges except deep inside the F holes - shouldn’t be putting one’s fingers in there anyway! Setup straight out of the warehouse was good, neck relief a bit high, action good (at that relief), intonation easily tweaked and fretboard and frets were smooth with covered edges. It has stayed in tune now that the strings have stretched. The Humbuckers have zero noise and the neck one in particular produces a beautiful clean tone which could suit jazz (but I don’t have the skills). Splitting the pickups produces a tiny bit of hum, have to get closeup and personal with the 50W amp to hear it. Note that running both split pickups does NOT cancel out the hum. On this left hander the pots work ‘backwards’ which I understand is usual for low priced lefties, I have never owned an electric guitar before so my brain will take a while to adapt. Thinking of overlaying my own numbers on the knobs to remind me. Down the track I will replace the strings and get a full professional setup done but very impressed with it straight out of the box and a remarkable guitar for the price. Martin 24/11/19
