Artist CHERRY58 TRD Hollow Body Electric Guitar

Artist CHERRY58TRD Hollow Body Electric Guitar

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!

The Artist Cherry58 offers a perfect entry-level guitar for those wishing to begin their journey into the world of blues and Jazz. With the typical set-neck, this guitar is truly a "blues machine". 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 22 frets show off the 'Dot' shaped plastic inlays and when you add to the comfortable "C" shape neck the standard tune-o-matic bridge and stop-bar tailpiece, you have a guitar that will not only feel great under your fingers but one that will sustain forever.

The Cherry58 sports chrome-covered Humbuckers with Alnico V magnets 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 Cherry58 awaits. Are you ready to take it on?

I'm not usually the sort of person who would buy a guitar without playing it first but this one had some good reviews so I dived in. The service from Artist was fantastic. They answered all my queries beforehand and I couldn't believe how quickly the guitar arrived after purchase (four days in the current situation, wow). As to the guitar itself out of the box finish was really good, pickups sounded great, tuners seemed fine. Dropped the action a bit and it played well. After a fret dress and setup (I can do that myself) I am really happy with how this guitar came out. It's a keeper for sure. Only minor dislike (purely cosmetic) is the pickguard which is a bit of an odd shape compared to the original but I just removed it and actually prefer the look. Well done Artist this is a great guitar for the money.

Beautiful to look at, and play ..

After borrowing my son's guitar and amp (you know, one of the things that he lost interest in and ended up leaving them 'at home' with the oldies, I started getting more and more interested in playing again after about a 35 year break. I'm using his amp, but the Cherry58 TRD is mine, all mine, and I'm loving getting back into it. I recall buying a brand new USA Strat in the early 80' sometime - let me tell you, the quality finish case and playability of the Artist is as good as, if not better. If you ever wanted to play a hollow body electric but couldn't afford an ES355 Gibson or Epiphone, this is just about perfect. The intonation on one string is sightly out but not enough for me to worry about yet. High quality instrument at a bargain price; couldn't be happier. Now I'm saving for the Tele (and probably the Strat - you can't have too many guitars).

Just a great guitar

Read and watched the reviews of this guitar and am glad I made the purchase. Only new to guitar playing I was using an Epiphone Les Paul Special II and was finding it uncomfortable to move around the guitar. Thank GOD I came across this guitar, straight out of the box sounded really good and was way easier to handle from a learning perspective. Even got my guitar teacher to test the guitar and he was blown away with the quality of the product, quality of the sound and versatility of the guitar. Thank you Artist as I am thoroughly enjoying playing this stunning guitar.
