Artist STH Electric Guitar with Humbucker Pickup

If you're someone who wants to play a bit of metal like Pantera, Van Halen or Metallica, but then wants to play rock like Arctic Monkeys or Cold Play, and then wants also to do a bit of Jimi Hendrix... basically you looking for a guitar that can do a bit of everything,  then this electric guitar is the right choice for you.

This guitar gives you a clean sound as well as much distortion as you can handle from your amp or effect pedals without any extra unwanted noise and squeals.

The STH electric guitar is a great way to be introduced into the world of rock, funk and blues as it is a beginners copy of a classic guitar that has done countless albums, tours and made many a guitar icon. The contoured body provides great comfort in playing which has made this type of guitar a favourite with many players.

It has tremolo bridge that is not floating, or lock tuning like a Floyd rose, but rather it is designed for a small amount of vibrato so locking nuts are not necessary. Great Quality and Wilkinson Pickups make this guitar a step above the rest. This is a real musical instrument not a toy, designed by our local luthiers and players. We also sell these as a package with an amplifier if you need.

This is a full size guitar perfect for Adults, recommended for Children over the age of 12 (or younger if your child is strong and taller than 1.2m)

It includes all accessories you need to get started:

  • STH Electric Guitar
  • Electronic Guitar Tuner
  • Strap
  • Bag
  • Lead
  • Picks

Some of its great features

* It has an Eco-rosewood fingerboard and maple neck, a 2 way truss rod (which means you can adjust the neck up or down)

* Wilkinson pickups (ceramic) mean you will get a much better sound than a "standard" pickup.  The STH comes with a Humbucker and 2 single coil pickups. This gives you more versatility in the styles you can play. Humbucker pickups allow you to produce better distorted tones.

* It has a classic strat style bridge (so you can do classic style tremolo and string bends) & die-cast machine heads that will help you stay in tune longer and make your tuning easier.

* A free guitar lesson (check out our website for times and locations - sorry not all locations are currently covered - contact us if your area is not covered).

Includes Free Beginners Lesson
* We include a range of support materials from how to tune, how to read tab, basic chord shapes and more.

Had this for a few days now. After putting my usual gauge strings on, and tweaking the intonation for my tuning, I really can't find a single fault with this guitar. It's not just better than a Squier, it's easily as good as any Mexican strat that I've played as well. Had some trouble getting it here, but artist made sure it was taken care of as quickly as possible. The red looks really classy in person, and I just can't get over the neck! Going to put some locking tuners on this weekend, and will probably upgrade the bridge when I can afford it. I'm in love with this thing! Will definitely buy another one to leave in standard tuning. Well done Artist, you guys are a haven for musicians on a tight budget! :)

Mind. Blown...

I really don't know what to say, I wasn't expecting this. It plays phenomenally, it sounds fantastic, and it's cheaper than a Squier. This guitar is screaming for a good old fashioned hot-rodding!

Great Strat

I purchased the Artist STH Metallic Blue Electric Guitar + Humbucker, after reading other reviews. I consider this a great purchase for those looking for a guitar to practice with and use in live performance. Out of the box everything was in good order. I tuned it up and plugged it in to my amp and it produced beautiful clean tones without further modifications. I didn't want to spend large amounts of money on a well known brand as I didn't know how I would be able to handle an electric guitar or if it would even be suitable for me. I've played an acoustic for many years. But this Stratocaster sounds great and is beyond my expectation. A professional friend of mine tried it and said "it's amazing, what colours do they come in - I want one!" Well done Artist Guitars! I would recommend this to anybody.

Had the guitar over a year now and it still very much works although time for a new pot as a little scratchy (when adjusting volume. That's fine as any guitar in this price range will have cheap pots, and very easy thing. I would have liked a better set up out of the box but plenty playable for a beginner and as you learn simple set ups are easy. Having done the full set up it's OK. I am sure some would like it lower but really as a beater it's plenty low enough for general rock with very simple stuff (watch youtube and a good one to learn on). I may mod it up as the basic neck and body are fine. Not exactly checked fret heights but seem OK, which is nice for a guitar this price range. It's a very solid beginner guitar, and past that serves as an intermediate trainer / something to leave around as sounds OK anyway. 4 stars as nothing remarkable but bang for buck it's fine and Artist have not let me down on a few bits. As a real beginner I would be hesitant at spending more as many need a set up anyway and that's pointless for a beginner and needs doing again every so often (not to same extent). Stays in tune fine (new strings are a plus on just about any new guitar and 9-42s fine for this IMO fwiw). Tuners are nothing great but once intune it stays there and beginners are not tuning mid song infront of crowds anyway.......................I have way better but pick this little thing up often for home use.

Totally Exceeded Expectations

Hi Team Artist- after lurking on your website for weeks...I finally pulled the pin and ordered a metallic blue STH electric guitar. I received it today and am completely blown away with not only how good the guitar looks, but most good it sounds. I am playing through a VOX mini amp, the VOX AC2 Rythm and even with this small amp, the guitar sound is fantastic. I wanted a clean sound and boy am I getting it. Flicking the switch back to the humbuckers and the power chords sound meaty and yuge. I highly recommend the Artist guitars. Easily on par with the Squier Affinity's I tried in the shop. At half the price. With a better warranty. And better customer service. Thanks Artist! AWESOME WORK!
