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!!!

Tone machine!

By: Tsunami Steve Horne on 21 October 2020
I recently purchased the TC59 and I'm still picking my jaw up from the floor. It's amazing! The playability, the locking tuners, the satin backed neck, overall finish, tone possibilities, all of a very high standard. It went up a notch when I loaded the Ernie Ball 10s. I play instrumental music best described as 'surf and beyond'. The TC59 split through a Blues Junior and an AC15 is spectacular, sparkling, pure and punchy. I 95% use the split single coils, bridge or bridge/neck. I've got my eye on the Thin line now! I have one question for you Artist you have any plans to produce a version with a Bigsby? I'd be up for one of those as well... Cheers Tsunami Steve.. PS...I didn't mention the weight because it's a non issue! Okay, so I've mentioned it If it sounds this good, who cares....

Amazing instrument

By: Rohan on 11 September 2020
I have bought a number of guitars from Artist and this would have to be my favourite. Not only is it an eye-catching beauty but the sound is amazing. Dual humbuckers with the option to split coils gives this instrument an incredible range of options, making it very versatile. I have an older model of the LP style that has a prior generation of the Artist humbuckers - I thought they were great but the ones on this TC (and some of the new Artist range, it seems) are a big advance. My original plan was to take off the low E string and keep this permanently in Open G for playing some of favourite Rolling Stones songs but changed my mind when I realised how versatile this instrument is. The clean sound is very clear and splitting the coils hardly introducing any noise. Responds well to a bit of overdrive too. There have been comments about the weight of this guitar - this might be a factor for professionals who stand and play for hours night after night but for an amateur like me who sits down at home to play it is of no concern at all. A number of little touches that make it a joy to play - things like the finish on the neck and the locking tuners. As always, great service and delivery from Artist. All of this at an incredibly low price, which is important for me as an amateur who can't justify spending 10 times the price for a branded item. This instrument makes you want to play guitar more and is already inspiring me to keep trying to improve. I absolutely love it and would gladly recommend it. If you're on the fence, don't hesitate to get one, especially at this price.

TC59 Awesome

By: John on 4 September 2020
WOW, how do you guys keep doing it for the price, this beauty arrived today and I am blown away. It is one solid guitar you have built. It was a lot heavier than I had expected but it is simply awesome. Well done Artist - Keep up the great work.

Awesome Guitar for the Price.

By: Kim on 3 September 2020
I bought oner of these about 12 months ago. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to play & the versatility of the pickups. The only drawback is how HEAVY it is, it's seriously solid!! But i love it, & i actually prefer it to my Squier Tele. For the price, you cannot do better IMHO

Nice Tele

Great instrument, quick action, beautifully made, you can’t beat the price. It comes with locking tuners, I had to buy another one because I lent the first one to a friend and he doesn’t want to give it back. It is heavy but the sustain is good and it looks beautiful (For a Tele)
