Artist Brownburst58 X Anniversary Limited Edition Semi Hollow Electric Guitar

To Celebrate our 10th year annniversary, We present you with the 10th Anniversary Limited Edition, Brownburst58!

This classic style guitar has existed in many forms since it was first released in 1958. Since then it has been coveted by some of the greatest Rock 'n Roll, Blues and Jazz guitarists that the world has ever known. Legendary names like BB King, Freddie King, John McLaughlin, Larry Carlton, Jorma Kaukonen, Eric Clapton, and Elvin Bishop are among the multitude of players who have loved the diverse tones that this type of instrument offers. Now it's your turn!

This is a great sounding instrument and aesthetically beautiful at the same time. It features a 3 piece Maple neck with an Ebony Fretboard. The 22 frets show off the 'Block' shaped plastic inlays and when you add to the comfortable "C" shape neck, the wheeled tune-o-matic bridge and a locking stop-bar tailpiece, you have a guitar that will not only feel great under your fingers but one that will sustain forever.

The Brownburst 58 sports our 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 which confirms that this is an extremely versatile guitar that will be very responsive under your fingers. 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.

The Limited Edition Brownburst58 will only be on sale while stocks last and won't be hanging around for long! Get yours now!

So Nice

By: John on 4 September 2020
I am fairly new to playing so my knowledge is very limited. I recently received the BB58 and not being sure what to expect for the cost but WOW. The looks, the feel, the finish how do you do it Artist. This thing is simply stunning, sounds great, absolutely recommend this beauty. You need one.

Very, very good

By: Dennis on 17 August 2020
Very high value for money. I have minimal experience with humbuckers and 335 type guitars but the sound of these humbuckers are very, very good. I never thought a 335 type guitar would offer so much variation in tones - and I'm not even talking about the split coil sounds yet. I play mostly clean through affordable but decent home gear. I have a cheap but decent Strat stye copy (Aria STG-003) but was after thicker, smooth cleans hence I took the leap and bought the Brownburst untested. I've avoided online guitar purchases - this is my first. Make, feel, finish are superb but I take off one star for the unpolished (?) frets - when you bend the unwound strings, you hear creaking and feel some roughness or friction between the string and the fret. But they're minimal (much much less than a Tokai Legacy 335 I tested in a music shop) and are not a deal breaker. Its just that my much cheaper Aria had smooth stainless steel frets out of the box, as did all the other other electrics I had owned in the past. No string buzz. Intonation is spot on. Action is good - not too high or too low - suitable for me for the styles I play. The neck is a bit fat and wide compared to my Aria (I have small hands) but still very playable for me. No sharp fret ends sticking out. No dead spots on the fretboard. The back is curved too! Even the f-holes have binding. Tuners are 'locking' - still exploring. Weight and size were a major concern for me even if I play sitting down mostly but I am pleased that it's not that heavy. Its comfortable for me sitting down. Overall, its a lot of guitar for (to me) a reasonable amount of money.

Brownburst X Anniversary Guitar. Remarkable value

By: Alexander on 13 August 2020
This Brownburst X Anniversary 335 Guitar is really much better than I expected for $400. It plays great straight out of the box. The hardware quality and finish are very good.

No brainer!

By: Alex on 24 July 2020
Well done Artist Guitars. This guitar plays beautifully right out of the box. At $399 or, $498 with a good quality hardcase, you can't go wrong. I'm very pleased with it... "a no brainer" ...

Way beyond my already high expctations

By: peter on 25 June 2020
Previous reviews had my expectations fairly high. But I didn't expect this quality for $488 WITH the hard case option. Quite simply an incredible bargain for such a quality finish and solid build. I play this through a vintage early 1960's Fender Princeton amp - straight - no pedals to adjust tone (bar a reverb.....) superb warm sound - with plenty of tonal variations due to pop up split coil volume controls. The set up straight from factory suited me very well - no adjustments needed for my finger style picking and my "Wes Montgomery" ish thumb and finger strumming. If you are of similar style I recommend upping the string guage to .11 guage (D'Addario Mediums) - they gave me better tone and tension. (up from the .10-46s supplied which I found just a little thin toned and light) Also the nut has quite sharp edges - and I found that certain first fret chord shapes saw my index finger chafing on the sharp edge of the nut near top E string. Judicious gentle rounding with a light nail file soon solved that very minor issue ! But this is no serious criticism....Sure, Artist Guitars, get that nut smoothed out a bit on the edges for future models......but I am thrilled with this guitar. I dont know how "limited" the Sunburst edition will be as I see AG are ordering more in...... Yes, there's sure to be a difference between this and a vintage Gibson at 10 times the price - but I wager the difference is smaller than you should ever expect for a $400 guitar.....This is a beautiful guitar to play.....Buy with confidence.
