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're 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 beginner's 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 a 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 this guitar's 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 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.

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

STH Vintage Sunburst

What a bargain! I’ve always been a fan of the HSS setup on Stratocaster guitars and couldn’t believe the price of this bundle. Surely there was something wrong? So I read reviews on the ‘net and viewed reviews on YouTube to see if there was anything else I needed to find out, before I placed an order. The whole purchase experience was easy, so it was just a matter of following the tracking to see when delivery would occur (Sydney-Adelaide). Delivery was quick, even in COVID-times; packaging was excellent; delivery exactly as specified; all good so far! Unpack, tune and begin to play…wow, unbelievable quality, when you consider the price. Tones from all positions are excellent, build quality, finish, everything is of the highest quality. I’m only going to lower the action a touch and adjust intonation and it will seriously be a dream come true. Still cannot believe the price/quality outcome. I’m smitten, and looking through the Signature series models for my next purchase. Thanks guys for your commitment to quality and your efficient service.

It is our pleasure and thank you so much for leaving us this feedback. We really appreciate the support!

Ridiculously Good

I bought this as a 'knock around' guitar and i'm just blown away. After lowering the action, this is just superb. I play lead guitar in 3 bands and i would happily play this guitar on stage. The neck on this is so good that i'm going to swap it for the neck on one of my more expensive guitars as it would be an upgrade to that guitar. The Wilkinson pickups are great too. Amazing value!

Thanks for the awesome review and support.

Factory 2nd Artist STH Vintage Sunburst Electric G

I purchased this guitar as a birthday present to myself and at $161it was just a steal. Just blown away by the sunburst and the high quality finish, this guitar is just gorgeous. I did find a very small scrape in the finish, which I buffed 90 % of it out. The action is good and once it was tuned it was a joy to play, the satin neck is really fast. I do not know how you guys can produce such fine quality instruments for the price. Thank you.

Thank you so much for the review and for all the support. You rock! Cheers.

Axe-actly what you need in a beginner guitar.

By: on 1 May 2021
Are you eyeing off this guitar against a similarly priced competitor? Put your money on this one. For the price, there's nothing bad you can say. Frets aren't as scratchy as the last STH I got, and the fingerboard is a little more rolled on the edges- so Artist are obviously listening to your feedback and adjusting their products accordingly. If you are an absolute beginner or looking for a guitar to just be able to grab and take wherever without having to stress about it, this is PERFECT. It's good enough for me to use for pedal demos, so it's good enough for you to learn riffs on. One million stars out of five.

Thank you very much for your awesome feedback. This means a lot to us. We are glad that you like the guitar. Keep rockin!

Im very impressed with this little beauty, spotless finish, well done! Nice neck its comfortable, strings highs and set up is pretty good, easy to play. Bridge humbucker is 13.87 kOhm very gutsy, when you crank up your overdrive, there is no distractive humming and buzzing noise, all 3 pick up is very good. I like this guitar and happy to recommend it to anyone, you will get excellent value for your money! Artist Crew, Highly professional customer service! Five star for sure!

Artist STH Brown Sunburst Electric Guitar + Humbuc

I have only had the guitar about 2 weeks now. I am a total beginner and it seems like the right guitar for a beginner. Sound and quality are great.

Wow. Wish I could give a higher score. I’m not an expert barely past beginner but have been through 5 or 6 guitars and currently own 4. This is by far the one I want to play. It’s so much fun & so easy to play. The best guitar is the one that makes you want to play and this is it. I don’t know how they do it for the price. The candy apple red looks unbelievable and the guitar was set up perfectly out of the box. Love it.
