Artist TC59 Electric Guitar with Bullbucker Pickups

The Artist TC 59 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 "Bull Bucker" 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" is 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! It is well worth the effort - you won't be disappointed!!!

Wow

By: on 11 April 2021
This thing is awesome. There's not a thing on it that needs updating or upgrading. It's almost perfect. Plays like a $1000 guitar. Sounds incredible. Finish & setup was perfect straight out of the box. But, it is seriously heavy. Especially if you're used to thin light strats. I'm a big guy but after a few hours sitting playing it can make the leg sore. I don't gig or stand to play but I can imagine it would take a toll. Otherwise perfect. And as good as $1000 guitars

TC 59

I got hold of a TC59 and For the Price These are Awsome , they could even cost a bit more and it would still be Great Value. After all guitars should BE PLAYED /PLAY well and be an musical instrument to inspire and not be Just An Investment or a collectors bargaining object , especially those that don't even play them and brag about what they own .

Great Value

By: on 5 April 2021
I am a little late with my review as I did a fairly popular tones demo on my YouTube channel of this guitar in 2019. If you look up my name you'll find my channel on YouTube. I just play with no talking. Anyways its a great playing guitar and the pickups are next level. You'd have to spend atleast $300 to buy a set of pickups that sound as good as the Bullbuckers. Neck is really comfortable and feels nice in the hand. Only thing that I'd like to see different is the weight. As it's no secret that these TC59s tend to be on the heavy side. I'm sure with time this will be sorted as you guys are great and always keep moving forward with your guitars.

Great sounding guitar

By: on 29 March 2021
Again great service from Artist and was delivered well before the projected delivery date which was well appreciated. As I am only in my early stages of playing guitar I have tried the Squier and Epiphone Les Paul beginner models and this is by far a superior electric guitar to play. After a quick tune plugged it straight into the amp and was just blown way with the overall and range of sounds it could produce, made the next hour testing it out just great fun. Sounds and performs exactly as shown on some you tube videos out there testing this guitar out, also forgot to mention looks absolutely stunning out of the box. My guitar coach is just waiting for this Wednesday to test this out and run it through its paces and have no doubt he will be impressed. Thanks again Artist great quality guitar.

Awesome sound!

The guitar is awesome with great frets. The nut was cut too low on the B string for mine but that was an easy remedy for me. The guitar is a winner and ive recommended it to numerous people.

Excellent

I love this guitar, but as others have mentioned the factory strings need to be lengthened and wrapped more as they pull out on initial tuning and are cut too short to easily re-attach. A simple fix to the only annoying issue with this incredibly priced, high quality (but very heavy) guitar.

UPDATE on my previous review!

By: on 22 March 2021
UPDATE on my review! :) I would like to add that on the 21st March 2021 I decided to open up the electronic cavities to shield them and to my very pleasant surprise the control panel's cavity has a layer of shielding paint applied!!! HAPPY DAYS! This didnt seem to be the case with my first TC59 purchase but no biggie there as I purchased one of the first ever runs of this model...perhaps they tweaked it after a few more production runs? Either way! AMAZING ARTIST GUITARS TC59, DEFINITELY THE ABSOLUTE BEST BANG FOR BUCK! My original review shown below: "My 2nd TC59 By: Patrick on 16 March 2021So heres my review :) This guitar is simply "Affordable Quality". What do I mean by this? Well, I now own 2 of them... 1 has been modded where I have switched out the pickups and pots and switches for handwound humbuckers a friend of mine put together for me and all the electronics are american... Why did I buy a 2nd one? The first one wasnt actually intended to be modified...but I had the humbuckers in a Les Paul copy which retired due to a damaged neck that to repair would cost more than the guitar is worth so I saved the humbuckers by dropping them into this... Bought a 2nd because I wanted a stock standard TC59 as my backup. The body is Ash, neck is maple, nut is bone... the value for money in just the body and neck alone make this guitar a smart purchase for a tinkerer, a partscaster aficionado or even somebody wanting a workhorse of an axe. Bullbuckers sound great, the coil tap is a beautiful touch. One thing I have noticed is because of the natural finish all the wood grain is different which is really nice because these arent ugly pieces of Ash... they are quite pretty in fact and to paint them in a colour would just be wrong :P I spent a whole day playing strats and teles around the $600-$1000 mark looking for my next guitar and after a day of going to 3 different guitar shops...I came home and ordered my 2nd TC59 because the value cant be beaten I've been a customer of Artist for many years and admit they and I have had our ups and downs and disagreements but there is a reason I always stay loyal no matter what happens... The value for money, the customer service is always professional and the Shipping is super quick. The ONLY thing I would do to this guitar if I had to pick something? I would simply add some shielding tape to the pickup cavities and control cavity...but thats it... Pick one of these up at $279.... and a roll of Aluminium tape from an electrical store for about $11.00 and you are still below half price of a Squier CV tele..."

Shipping arrived a day before it said it could. Awesome to play after spending 10 mins setting it up. No issues with anything and pickups sound a lot better then expected for a guitar of this price
