Artist ST62 Vintage White Electric Guitar
Artist ST62 Vintage White Electric Guitar
This is the latest in Artist's signature model guitars. It boasts a modern tremolo - slot in slot out arm rather than the vintage screw-in design. This is an extremely nice guitar to play with great appointments all around. It features a comfortable '62 style neck with the Artist ST style headstock. This is also the first guitar in the Artist line up to feature the Artist "Wrangler" series single coil pickups featuring Alnico 5 magnets which were designed to replicate that great vintage tone so important to the "ST" style of guitar. Add to this the locking machine heads and medium jumbo frets and you have a great all around axe.
The body is constructed using Solid Poplar with a canadian maple neck and eco-rosewood fretboard.

Gig worthy GuitarBy: Daniel on 22 January 2021Well, the reviews and other accolades led me to expect good things and Artist delivered. You could have delivered this to me at a gig and (apart from a bit of string stretching to stabilise the tuning = normal on new strings) I'd happily play it live out of the box. The pickups are good, hardware is good, the weight is just right, and I love the neck (the part that tells me whether I'm going to like playing it). One day I'll A-B it against a real Fender Strat for curiosity's sake. I'd recommend this to beginners and any other level player who wants a strat. I was going to mod it immediately but I like this one as it is so I'll just have to buy another one! Will be back for more soon.
Above & BeyondBy: Alex on 4 January 2021One of the best Strat copies going 'round. Love it!! ... right out of the box and, a couple of minor tweaks later, this very well built axe really delivers. I will have no hesitation and have full confidence in letting the 'baby' lose on stage. "Well done Artist Guitars - keep 'em coming"
Great Guitar, Great Value, Excellent QualityBy: Keith on 1 December 2020This was my second Guitar purchase from Artist. And Like the first I was amazed at the Quality and value for money. Yes it is not a Strat, but it's so damn close to one who cares. Artist always offers great value and they haven't failed on this one. Beautiful to look at, flawless finish, Pickups are brilliant the two way tremolo works exceptionally well. It sounds so close to a Strat, only the highest trained ear would notice any difference (If Any). The neck, and frets are very well finished, bending is so smooth (no notches on the frets). You want a Strat without having to pay Thousands of dollars, get this baby, you won't be disappointed!
Artist guitars ST62- A beautiful stratBy: Anup on 17 August 2020This is an amazing guitar for the price. Really well built, very comfortable to play and sounds really nice. For the price, you really cannot fault it. Will be visiting Artist guitars again.
A beautiful instrumentBy: Bel on 15 August 2020I am so impressed with my recent purchase of the Artist ST62 electric guitar. It came out of the box in mint condition, with a lead and a few picks put in to sweeten the deal! The guitar itself is a quality instrument. Only wish I had purchased one years ago! The action on the fretboard is fantastic and the feel of the neck is so smooth. The sound is perfect and even better through the Joyo vintage overdrive effects pedal that I got at the same time. I love the fact that Artist guitars is an Australian company.
Very happy with this guitarBy: Isaac on 24 July 2020I was surprised by the build of this guitar. It's a brilliant guitar and quite versatile too. Warm and woody or clear and glassy sounds are easily found.
A great guitar!By: Phillip Rowe on 24 July 2020My opinion on this guitar is, a fine instrument, overall! The finish is excellent, the neck is straight and smooth to play, the frets are finished very smoothly (no fret sprout!) the weight feels good, and the action is fine, before I even look at it. I'm already playing it as is, and I'm fairly fussy about string action, height, etc. The tremolo arm has a small grub screw that has to be loosened, to allow the arm to slide in, and I had never had this on my other trem systems, so I didn'y know about it! (Perhaps I should've looked harder!) Artist Guitars gave me the right advice and help with this matter, and it's working like a charm! So, all in all :- great finish, smooth action, I can get good tones from this excellent instrument, plus it has locking tuners, and also, a good size metal block in the trem system, which adds to the sound and sustain! What else would you want from a guitar? I am suitably impressed with the fact that they can supply this guitar for their affordable price, and still maintain the quality that we all want! This is my sixth Artist Guitar, apart from other accessories, and I have to say that I've never been disappointed with any purchases! Thank you, Artist Guitars for great instruments and great service!
Good guitar but......By: Gerry on 10 June 2020This guitar is great but....it does not include the trem arm even though it has a trem system and their official videos all show one. When I quized their Customer service they only go off their website. The customer service definitely have no idea on their products. Would have been a five star but the after sale support brought it down.
GuitarBy: BVS on 26 May 2020Great guitar.. very good for it's price.. the tremolo has a thick solid block rather the thin block you see on another brands at this price range.. P/U's sound's good.. neck feels smooth...
Fantastic Strat for the money!By: Rob McCarthy on 31 January 2020I love this beast. I've had it for around 6 months. It's finish is equal to the best guitar I've ever played including some costing thousands. The playability is great. It only required minimal setup and the tone is spot on. The alnico staggered pole pickups have that real Strat 'chime' and switch positions 2 abd 4 have that 'quack'. My favourite position for must stuff is the neck pick up. The eco-rosewood fingerboard and frets are so smooth. It's a joy to play! Even has locking tuners. Not perfect but they hold tune well. I wouldn't be surprised if this was as good or better than any of the Squire brand Strats. Keep it up Artist!
