Artist Brownburst58 X Anniversary Limited Edition Semi Hollow Electric Guitar

To celebrate our 10th 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!

Wonderful guitar

By: on 10 November 2021
Having been impressed with previous guitars I've got from Artist Guitars I was hoping the same would be the case with the Brownburst and I was not disappointed. The fit and finish is wonderful, no sharp fret ends, plays beautifully and sounds great. The hardware seems fine and tuning stability is pretty good. I did a side by side comparison with an older Epiphone Dot and I have to say I prefer the Brownburst. The pickups have a clarity that is missing in the Epiphone which can get muddy and yet there is still a nice warmth and responsiveness from the pickups. Add in the coil splits which do sound very good and it makes it a versatile guitar that is very enjoyable to play. I might need to do a slight tweak to the action as the low E is just a hair too low giving a bit too much fret buzz when digging in but that will be easily fixed when I check the setup after it has had some time stabilising back up to pitch as it was shipped with the strings loosened a bit.

Wonderful! Fantastic Guitar!!!

By: on 21 October 2021
Had this guitar for about a few weeks now. There were blemishes when the guitar arrived, some dents on the bridge pickup cover and some paint peeling off from the guitar strap button at the bottom of the guitar which is a result of handling during transportation. Had a chat with the customer service people, and wow!!!! Amazing service, all got sorted very quickly and their response time is awesome! Back to the guitar, I like the sound of this guitar, I prefer the Bullbucker pickups compared to the stock pickups I have in my Epiphone Les Paul Ultra II. Comparing both guitars, the playability of the Artist Brownburst58 is awesome. Nice sounds overall, quality built. I do not like purchasing guitars online as well, and this is a risk I took because of the guarantees, and all I can say is I am very happy. No problems for me buying a guitar online from Artist Guitars, the other guitars, I'll still buy instore once lockdown ends. Looking forward to another Artist Guitar purchase soon.....

Fantastic guitar - incredible value for money.

By: on 19 October 2021
This is my second Artist 335 -I also have the black cherry. I bought this so I could have a guitar to play when visiting my elderly parents. After changing the strings and doing an adjustment it plays and sounds fantastic. I took it for a jam the other night - everyone there just loved the tones I was pulling from it. I think Artist do the best value for money guitars around. Just prior to this arriving I was playing an Epiphone semi-hollow and though that cost three times the price it was nowhere near as good as the Artist.

I'm genuinely very impressed

By: on 15 October 2021
This is my first electric guitar purchase, so I took on the fairly daunting task of researching similar body types, brands and specifications. I also had the restriction of not actually seeing any of them in the flesh or even holding or playing them. So how do you trust what you see and read online? You go by a combination of gut-feel, reviews and on-line integrity to name a few. Saying all this, the guitar arrived in 3 days and I was not at all disappointed in the least! The visual appeal, finish and workmanship could not be faulted, as is the price too. The sound, to my ear is impressive too, delivering an array of possibilities from smooth, clean tones to crunchy dirty tones. Love it, well done Artist!

A Hollowbody Convert

By: on 8 October 2021
About 5 years ago I bought an Epiphone Dot because I wanted to venture into hollow body territory as part of my guitar journey. I wasn't very impressed. The tones seemed inferior to anything produced by my Strat, SG or Les Paul, and the quality felt average (eg: the tone and volume pots weren't level with the guitar which was annoying). After a few months of uninspired playing, I decided that I just didn't get hollow bodies and sold it, assuming it was a 'me' problem. A couple of weeks back I bought this Brownburst58 and I now understand the problem was with the Epiphone, not me. This guitar is a different animal in almost every way. The setup out of the box was almost perfect. As for the tones, I haven't stopped playing this since it arrived. It plugs a tonal gap between my Les Paul and Strat that neither can nail. I can now see what my Epiphone Dot was trying - but failing - to achieve. This is the first guitar that has got me using the volume and tone pots consistently. There's just so much versatility to explore with every amp setting and pedal. This guitar rewards dynamic playing - light and shade. It allows you to explore the space between single pickups and humbuckers on the fly. It's an incredibly satisfying experience. Cons: the strings were tarnished and the frets still feel a little rough - I might need to polish them. But seriously, that's it. I have no intention of replacing anything else. The pickups are beautiful and I feel no need to replace them. And it's $400. I seriously cannot believe the value for what I paid - again the Epiphone was over twice that amount for an inferior guitar. So now I finally get hollowbodies. Thanks Artist Guitars.
