Artist TC59 Electric Guitar with Bullbucker Pickups
Artist TC59 Electric Guitar with Bullbucker Pickups
The Artist TC59 Electric guitar has certainly been a long time in the development phase but as the saying goes, "good things come to those who wait" and the TC59 is finally here and a "good thing" it certainly is!
Combining vintage styling with contemporary appointments, the TC59 is a worthy addition to the Artist Guitars brand offering everything that you could want in an electric guitar without the hefty price tag.
Sporting Artist's in-house designed and manufactured "Bullbucker" humbucking pickups, the range of sound possibilities that can be achieved from the '59 whether it be jazz, blues, rock or country, is quite astounding. The "Bullbuckers" are a fantastic pickup in their own right and are starting to make some very positive noise amongst guitar players but when they are combined with the TC59's American Ash body and the vintage style maple neck you have an absolutely outstanding guitar package.
The modern bridge which allows for each string's intonation to be adjusted separately guarantees that you can set your guitar up to its optimal level - such a necessary and useful innovation.
To top it all off this wonderful little axe has locking machine heads which make sure that tuning is never far from perfect.
Check this little beauty out! You won't be disappointed!!!

Artist TC59By: Trevor on 23 June 2021A really exceptional guitar.... I hate to say it but it knocks my Fender Strat into a 'cocked hat'! For the price ... unbeatable! AAA+++!

Bloody Phenomenal guitarBy: Noah Caulfield on 9 June 2021Not much can be said as a testament to just how beautiful this is guitar is, especially for the price. All that can be said has been said by previous reviews and videos. The only downfall I've found is the tone knob for split coil always comes off when splitting up, it won't fall of when not being touched of course, but even the lightest tug and it comes right off, is there somewhere to find a replacement knob that fits the pot? Other than that, bloody beautiful!

Finally TC 59By: John Del Valle on 8 June 2021After 8 days of waiting, my TC 59 and Tweed Case arrived today. A little bit lost as to how it’s taken so long to get from Sydney to Albury but hey it’s here and it’s all in one piece. I’ve pretty much looked at every bit of footage available on you tube and read every review in those 8 days and in my opinion it is an amazing sounding and playable guitar. Well worth the wait! I had to lower the string height and will replace the strings with 11s but the intonation was spot on and the build quality is great. Not sure how Artist Guitars do it for such a low priced guitar. I own Gibson’s, fenders and Gretsch guitars and I’m loving the TC59. (Not sure if the neighbours do, been playing it since it arrived.) So if you want a great guitar for not a lot of money definitely do yourself a favour and don’t go past the Artist TC59.
By: Artist GuitarsThank you so much for this awesome feedback. We are sure you will definitely love your TC59 and hope that the neighbours will love it too (eventually). Don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or need help with anything. Cheers!

Artist TC59By: Gerard on 27 May 2021I own two of these already & I just bought my third because it's damaged & reduced to a VERY good price. This number three will get modifications along with the repairs needed, but the plan is to convert the pickups, bridge & scratchplate to single coil 'TL' style. The heavy ash body & the maple fingerboard are just asking to be caressed. If you see one, grab it. Great build quality & fantastic pickups. **Gerry from Port Kembla**

Tc59 top notch guitarBy: Tim on 17 May 2021This was a customer return and I was a little nervous in making the purchase but as this was my fourth guitar I’ve brought from artist guitars I was quietly confident it would be okay. I pulled it out of the box and still can’t find anything wrong with it at all. Plays fantastic. It has the sound and feel of a high end guitar, a little on the heavy side but once you get past that you can’t go wrong. Very happy

Fantastic guitarBy: Warren Barlow on 26 April 2021After seeing Brett Kingman and left handed Shane review these on YouTube, how could I not buy one? The build quality is perfect, the American Swamp Ash body it's made of is indeed very heavy but it doesn't worry me as I'm not gigging with it. For the price, it is beautiful, well made, the Bullbuckers sound great and it's cheap cheap cheap. This is the second Artist guitar I've bought and I love both of them. This company keeps knocking them out of the park.

Fantastic guitar for the moneyBy: Demosthenes Mateo on 14 April 2021I have owned, sold, loved and hated guitars that were manufactured by big brands such as Gibson, Fender, Ibanez, Cort, Yamaha in just about every price point but I have to say that the Artist TC59 is the most bang for your hard-earned bucks ever! Ash body, satin finish maple neck, smooth and perfectly leveled jumbo frets and pickups that sing. This thing sustains longer than my Les Paul! The neck is tightly joined to the body and is perfectly aligned with the bridge way better than my Fenders and Gibsons. No guitar is perfect though. I would need to replace the volume pot with an audio taper pot to allow volume swells. It comes with a linear taper which is almost like an on-off switch when I’m using my amp drive channel. The tuners could be better but they need not be replaced at the moment. String action is also a bit high. I have lowered the saddles by about 1-1.5mm and they are now perfect without any annoying buzz. Overall, this guitar is a definite keeper. For the money, you’d be foolish not to get one, even if you already own multiple telecasters. The guitar will have its first gig next week.
