Artist BLACK58TRM Black Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar

On Sale for $349 - 9:00 - 12:00pm AEDT 15th of May Only!

Based on our popular Cherry58 model, the Artist BLACK58TRM was developed as a direct result of feedback from our customers looking for something with a little more versatility than Cherry58.

While retaining many of the features of the more traditional Cherry58 the Artist BLACK58TRM 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 guitars of this style, this is a great instrument for anybody looking for something unique in their sound. Like the body, the neck is constructed of maple with an Ebony fretboard. The 22 frets show off the 'Block' shaped inlays on the comfortable "C" shape neck, and Tune-O-Matic Bridge with Roller saddles and vibrato system makes this a real player's instrument.

The Artist BLACK58TRM Signature Bullbucker individual Coil Splitting pickups which means that you have the option of the warm throaty tones of the neck pickup or the biting clean sounds 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, and the push/pull coil-splitting on both pickups is an extremely useful and versatile addition offering single-coil or humbucker configurations. You will be able to put a stamp on all those great blues solos and wail like the greats or you could darken the tone to suit the "cool" of any dingy little jazz club.

Great value generating unique sounds

By: on 5 June 2024
I wanted some different sounds using a simpler playing style. Researched this semi-hollow and it looked ideal. I ordered it and received it in pristine condition 4 days later. Love the maple on this well built guitar with added extras in the push/pull pickup coil splitters on both neck and bridge. The light gauge strings in the original setup are well suited to this guitar. Slightly heavier than what I'm used to but that quickly dissipates when you're experimenting with the optionality of the pickups. I really enjoy playing this instrument. Its breathed another dimension into my playing and desire to broaden my skillset. Happy customer.

Black 58 Trem

By: on 30 May 2024
What an amazing guitar! Played great straight out of the box & the quality parts were immediately obvious, from the lockingvtuners to the bone nut, thru the perfectly finished fret ends all the way to the Bigsby! Intonation was almost spot on & action fairly good, a 20 minute setup on my workbench made everything perfect & zero fret buzz with the lower action. The splittable pickups really expand the tonal range of this guitar, almost Strat/Tele like tones with the splits activated & full bodied warm clean tones from the full bore setting. Tone controls aren’t as linear as I’d like but overall it doesn’t limit the sounds coming out of this excellent guitar. My only negative is that the pickup selector switch is buried under the Bigsby tremolo arm making it difficult to access on the fly. Overall a small price to pay for an incredibly good 335 style hollow body at under $500!!!

Wonky vibrato arm

By: on 19 January 2024
Was initially impressed with this guitar, but after a few hours of playing it I took a look at the vibrato and had a go with it. After moving it from it’s tucked away position to playing position three or four times the arm became loose and rattled a little. Also wouldn’t hold tune once the arm was used, even lightly. Tuning was fine before giving it a wobble. Contacted support who explained how to remove strings and tighten the nut/bolt under the spring. I did this about ten times but it always worked loose right away and swing around clanking into the tone knobs and when put up in a stand would swing around and then sit dangerously close (1 or 2mm) above the body. So it’s going back for a refund (if the courier ever turns up to collect it - it’s been two weeks and still waiting). The guitar played well (except for the trem arm) and sounded great. The finish wasn’t perfect with a couple of little scuffs, and you can see a lot of the messy wiring through the lower f hole, but I would have been happy and kept it if the trem arm wasn’t dodgy. I was going to exchange it for the dlx model without the trem arm but am a bit put off with the couriers not turning up… delivery was fine, only a few days to arrive in the blue mountains but am worried now they’re not gunna come for the same reason they haven’t come for collection of this return.

Before I purchased this 58, I reviewed many different styles and this just kept coming up as my choice. It has a classy look and it feels really nice to play and it punches up there with big brand names with ease. I just love everything about this 58.

Honestly I haven't even plugged it in yet but I'm gonna review it now. Firstly - your customer service is some of the best in the industry. I had issues with shipment and miscommunication on the carriers end with delivery and your staff handled my grumpy mood with absolute class and effencicy so thank you for that. Build quality - 4/5. I've had more expensive guitars that feel cheap, this is a cheap guitar that feels expensive. Beautiful finish. Only one complaint is that the cabling is visible through the F Hole yet I don't know if there's much to really be done about it. Watch all the reviews of rhis one, especially Rai's. Then go to artist guitars, hit add to cart. Boom that simple. Don't think. Buy. In all seriousness. If I plug it in and it blows me away the way others are saying ill be ordering a bass and an acoustic immediately. Artist forever baby!

Excellent service

By: on 17 July 2023
The guitar arrived in the time stated and the staff were happy to sort out a miscommunication with my previous order by sending me a free brass bridge. The guitar is a bit heavier than I expected, but plays very well after a fret polish , fingerboard oil and set up. Sounds fantastic , particularly love the mid position sound with both hum buckets coil tapped! Great value for the money
