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!!!

This thing is rock solidBy: Dennis on 20 September 2021This was my first Artist guitar purchase after watching a YouTube review from "In The Blues". What do you really have to lose at a price point of AUD$279? POSITIVES - Finish is great. Neck shape and finish is great for my hands. Fret work is really good. Coil tap between the humbuckers and single coils works well. Locking tuners!!! THINGS TO IMPROVE ON - This thing is heavy. Really heavy. Like old school Les Paul heavy. It can get tough on the back after a set or two. I also find the humbuckers slightly muddy when compared to the ones in the GNOSIS6. They aren't bad, but just not as clear as others. However, at only AUD$279, this thing is a steal.

Perfect bang for your buck !!By: Dougie on 13 September 2021Hi , im a player for 40 years and have some Les Pauls , Gibsons and Agiles and any number of guitars in between .....Ive always been Tele curious and when I decided I wanted to change one of the pickups on one of my agile les Pauls I thought to have a look at the Bullbucker pickups that artist were selling ....there was some talk on the net as to how good they were so what the heck I'll get one ......then I stumbled across the TC59 and seen the demo....well at the price I thought what the heck I'll get one .... Well it arrived in good shape and I was curios as to how one can make such a nice looking instrument for less than $300 bucks ...at first plug in I was a little set back by it as the strings were too high and the intonation was a little out ....but after an hour of fine tuning I must say that this is an impressive instrument for the your money ....the bullbucker pickups are very good , the heavy body is not an issue for me as it weighs the same as my les Pauls .... overall its a properly decent guitar and I would take this to a gig without question..... The only cons with this guitar is that I wish the neck was a little slimmer , and perhaps some jumbo frets would be nice ,and the pickups may sqeel in high gain situations .... but for les than $300 bucks delivered its a very very good choice ..... Also the Bullbucker pickup I installed into the Agile works perfectly , sounds great ......but sqeels in high gain situations .....as does the ones in the Tele ....still very nice pickups for $40 I would not consider changing it but I might pot it again..... Cheers

Artist Telecaster (TC59)By: Les Collins on 11 September 2021High quality instrument and arguably the best value for money Telecaster on the market. Love the ash (swamp ash) body. May be a bit heavy for some but that's a genuine vintage feel and it adds to resonance. BB pickups are good quality. Could have a bit more treble response but that can easily be compensated for by adjusting the treble control on the amp. I have tuned a full step down for rock style music e.g., CCR, Deep Purple, Led Zepplin.
By: Artist GuitarsWe are stoked to hear your feedback and thank you so much for the support!
A rock machine!By: Nick Francis Morrow on 8 September 2021I own a couple of $ 700-800 guitars (a g&l and a gretsch) but I’ve always come back to my Artist guitars strat and 8 string. Ordered the TC59 to use as a main gigging because I wanted a Tele style guitar with humbuckers and it might be the best guitar I own. Minimal setup required and plays great with low action. Wasn’t super into the neck pickup personally so I’m swapping it out, but other than that, you won’t find a classic style guitar this playable and solid for this price.

Just buy it! Great guitar!By: Levi de Almeida Nascimento on 4 September 2021To be honest, the first time I saw the guitar advertisement I didn't give so much attention. But after seeing some reviews in the website and Youtube, I decided to buy it. The product arrived on time, and in perfect situation, as described. The build quality of this guitar is simply outstanding! The finishing is perfect, and is very confortable to play with amazing tones. I already own a Epiphone Les Paul, and this telecaster is just exactly what I was looking for. I'm grateful for Artist Guitars to build such a great guitar!!!

lots of fun!By: Victor on 3 September 2021This guitar is just a lot of fun. It sounds great, the finish is fantastic and the split coil function is a treat to play with. Delivery in Sydney metro was vey quick. Couldn't fault this guitar if I tried.
By: Artist GuitarsThanks so much for all the support
Absolutely Stunning!!!By: Alan Ronayne on 31 August 2021I honestly bought this guitar as a bit of an impulse thinking that for the price, not much to lose. I could not believe the quality of this axe. Reassuringly heavy, perfectly set up, finish is gorgeous. Playing it through a Katana 50, I am able to get a wide range of equally satisfying tones from clean to heavily distorted....and the sustain??? Man, this beast sings on forver. I simply could not recommend this guitar enough, the only downside is that it has hatched a heavy dose of GAS for some more Artist guitars.
By: Artist GuitarsThank you so much for the feedback and we're happy to know that you're happy with your TC59!
Sensational!!By: Glenn on 30 August 2021So happy with my guitar. Everything about the process from purchase to delivery was spot on. Thanks Artist
By: Artist GuitarsThank you so much for your review. I sent you an email to let us know how we can help you with the guitar.
Stunning GuitarBy: Cheryl on 18 August 2021I had researched this guitar a lot, with the reviews always very good. I received my TC59 today, and cannot be happier. With its gorgeous sleek lines and colouring, excellent action and intonation, no fret sharpness at all, bone nut and too many other features to list, this guitar is simply the best. It plays like an absolute dream, it can growl when you want it to, it can be soft when you want it to, and every other level in between. The sustain goes on for days. Simply put, what an absolute outstanding instrument Artist has produced. This is my 3rd purchase from Artist and definitely will not be my last. Outstanding job Artist!
