Artist BCHYTRB Translucent Black Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar

Based on our popular Cherry58 model, the Artist BCHYX was developed as a direct result of feedback from our customers looking for something with a little more versatility than the Cherry58. The BCHYX is very similar to our BCHY model, with the addition of the "X" inlay at the 12th fret and a side-mounted jack rather than the top-mounted jack on the BCHY.

While retaining many of the features of the more traditional Cherry58 the Artist BCHYX differs with the addition of the roller vibrato. This roller Trem style vibrato was popular in rockabilly from its earliest days and now has gained widespread popularity across many styles of music both on stage and in the recording studio.

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 ebony 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 22 frets show off the 'Dot' shaped plastic inlays and when you add to the comfortable ""C"" shape neck the roller trem vibrato system you have a great budget-priced guitar in every way.

This also sports chrome-covered Artist Bullbucker humbuckers, with Alnico V magnets giving you the option of warm throaty tones on the neck pickup or the bite of the bridge pickup. When you set your toggle switch in between neck and bridge pickup 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 coil-splitting on both pickups is an extremely useful and versatile addition offering single-coil/ humbucker configurations in a variety of options to this wonderful instrument.
