Artist GNOSIS6FR Blue Cloud Electric Guitar with Floyd Rose
Artist GNOSIS6FR Blue Cloud Electric Guitar with Floyd Rose
The first Artist guitar to feature a Floyd Rose tremolo system, the GNOSIS6FR is a variant of our popular GNOSIS6 Model. This guitar is ideal for those interested in the heavier side of music. The popularity of ST style guitars has surged in the last 20 years, being adopted as an icon of the hard rock and metal scenes. If you love heavier music, this is the guitar for you.
The GNOSIS6FR is a 6 string, ST style guitar with a Floyd Rose Special Tremolo system and locking nut. Featuring a poplar body with a beautiful, quilted maple top and a Canadian maple neck with an Eco-Rosewood, 24 fret fingerboard. With a set-neck and deep cutaway, the GNOSIS6FR allows easy access to all 24 frets. It is designed with your need to achieve ultimate sustain and it delivers! This guitar excels at drop tuning by retaining a tight low end.
It also has a special combination of two Medium-High output Neck Humbucker and Bridge Humbucker. This means that you can switch from fluid Neck Pickup solo runs and warm clean sounds to the more hardcore crunching rhythms and shred guitar solos obtained from the impressive Bridge Pickup.

Artist GNOSIS6FR Blue Cloud Electric Guitar ReviewBy: Joshua Cronshaw on 28 January 2021[ ARRIVAL ] The guitar arrived on the expected date and came with an extra lead and picks. the guitar comes pretty well set up tho the action was a bit high for me. The guitar comes with all the alen keys you need and the whammy bar comes in a bag, not on the guitar, so there is no damage to the bridge or strings while shipping. The tuners had a bit of grime on them but it rubbed off easy. [ LOOKS (good) ] I took it out the packaging and it looked way better to me than the image shown on the website. The colour looks much better in person. The cloud pattern runs horizontal across the body rather than angled like in the image shown. The black hardware goes great with the blue cloud body. there is no string tree unlike shown in the image shown and there wouldnt need to be one since the neck is already angled. The guitar has a gloss finish on the front and the back and on the neck which is said to make the neck sticky but i havent found it to slow down my playing in any way. [ LOOKS (bad) ] I could see a bit of unpainted wood around the cover of the electronic cavity on the back. I think the guitar would look better with a pure white binding rather than an off white creamy colour. The binding on the neck is chiped on both sides under the locking nut [ PLAYING ] There where no sharp fret ends and the guitar shape gives easy accses to all 24 frets. I find that after a bit of playing my finger tips were black. This aparently happens alot with brand new guitars and even happens with brands like Ibanez. People say it's to do with somthing they put on the strings to make them last longer, others say it,s the fretboard dye but i personally think its the frets since i rubbed my finger along a fret and got a black streak. weird stuff but this problem usually gose away. the whammy bar made a ting sound when depressed beyond a certain point and i checked the springs to make sure they werent catching on anything which they were not so to stop the tinging i put a bit of foam under the springs and it seems to have fixed the problem. Im not going to say much about tone because i cant really tell tbh i just keep the tone knob on 10 but the guitar sounds great to me and the neck through design gives it long lasting sustain. Some people say that Floyd Rose Specials arent the best at holding tuning but iv only had to tune it once and it hasent gone out of tune ever since. Overall this guitar is great and is my go-to guitar for fast playing. Im not sure if the image has some differences to the actual guitar maybe because they have tweeked the design a bit after its release. i hope not becuase than this review wouldnt be as helpfull.
Dude......By: Christian on 18 January 2021I’ll take a Pepsi challenge on any Ibanez/schec / Jackson with a locking trem on this beast. Dude for the price it’s a steal. The color looks rad - the quality is top notch- has a human made it vibe. I played it thru Bias Fx2 and it ATE up the Pantera/Metallica presets! My new djent machine. Thanks Artist . After friends saw it they will definitely be checking out your store. Stoked
Good!By: BVS on 16 January 2021After waiting for it's released, this guitar is very good!.. colour is little different from the photo, but it's grown on me.. floyd rose work well, but it need slight set up .. still play well from the box.. solid black headstock will look good on this , but the blue look OK... Thanks A/G's
Great GuitarBy: David on 14 January 2021Mine arrived today. Guitar looks great, it feels and looks well made. Played very nicely out of the box. No blemishes. Two things, which are quite minor. The colour is definitely not blue. It’s is more of a sea green/ aqua would be my best description. It’s still a nice colour but I was actually looking for something like the picture which is definitely a darker blue. Also when I peeled of the protective plastic cover on the backplate it did lift some of the black colour off. Again not a bit deal and I’m not gonna mark down the guitar for that. I definitely think a new photo needs to go up that is more indicative of the colour as I would likely have not purchased this colour as I was really after a more striking blue. Cosmetic stuff at best but these are very nice guitars at a great price
Blue!!By: Brett on 3 November 2020can't wait... I got the normal version, great guitar.. should be great with FR's .. Artist Guitars Thanks..
artist does it again....By: Christian on 23 October 2020I didnt even flinch purchacing this sweet looking super floyd rose strat thing. Everything I have purchaced from Artist has been 100% EPIC! counting down the days, shoutout to my man Scones for putting me onto Artist... yewwww
great looksBy: carter marlow on 23 October 2020looks absolutely stunning and I'm saving up for one, from my experiences with artist I look forward to it because they never seem to disappoint
Looks fantastic, looking forward to it!By: Noah on 30 September 2020Artist guitars is such a good brand, I own 2 of their guitars and I'm saving up for this one, I'm mainly writing the review to bump the ratings up because some dickhead rated 0 stars because they didn't like the look.
looking goodBy: Joshua on 24 September 2020From looking at the visual given above this guitar looks amazing. I think the black hardware goes great with the blue cloud body and i think the black headstock is cool. I can't quiet decide myself weather a black or blue headstock looks better but both work well. I've preordered and cant wait to get my own. I love that Artist guitars decided to make a floyd rose guitar and the only thing i can think of to make this the perfect guitar is a kill switch and more high output pickups. but for only $299 its great just the way it is right now.
A better versionBy: Dudu on 16 September 2020This guitar would be better design if comes with gold hardware and split coil switch to give more warm rock strat clean tone. It would awesome.
