Artist TC59L Left Handed Electric Guitar + Bullbucker Pickups
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" 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 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!!!

A Little Love from a Leftie!By: Jonathan Jones on 26 March 2021Being a left-handed guitarist means having to manage your disappointment every time you see a gorgeous guitar only to be told it's only available as a right-handed model. I have a Gibson LP leftie (2004 model) as well as a 12 string Ovation, a Fender Strat and a surprisingly mellow Tanglewood 6 string. I'd been considering buying a Fender Tele but then one afternoon I stumbled across a review of the Artist TC59L. I'd seen the Artist brand floating around on Facebook but hadn't considered it as being the sort of guitar worth buying. I just considered it a cheap beginner's alternative. Anyway, curiosity got the better of me and I decided to buy one. Ok ... this is where it gets interesting. I made the purchase and immediately received follow up emails from Artist confirming purchase. Later that afternoon I received Aust Post confirmations that my parcel was on its way. It arrived a few days later in great condition ... no damage. When I opened the carton I was greeted by the sight of the spectacular Tweed case and inside was the neatly wrapped guitar. After unwrapping it I gave it a careful inspection, and was pleased to see there was no damage or marks on the body or neck. Nice! I sat down and started playing it unplugged. Surprise #1 ... the action was perfect. Surprise #2 ... the neck is really nice. Surprise #3 ... it is solid ... perhaps a little too heavy but then again I'm not planning on live-gigging with it. Surprise #4 ... when I turned the guitar face down to look at the back sawdust fell out of the switchplate hole. The strings it came with were a little dirty so I changed them to a new set (LOCKING TUNERS!!!) and plugged it in to my amp ... neck pickup sounded great ... good full sound and no buzz ... splitting the coil gives you a brighter sound ... nice. Then things went downhill ... switching to the middle position sounded the same as the neck. Hmmm? So I switched to the bridge ... and ...nothing ... dead pickup? I tried playing around with the selector switch but nope ... nothing! I went to the Artist web site and posted a service call. A day later I received a bit of a non-committal reply saying it was unusual for this guitar to have a problem with its pickups. Which I thought was odd. Anyway the service reply also asked for a video to be shot showing the problem. Which I duly shot. But then I began to consider all the messing about that may go on if I sent the guitar back for warranty repair. I could be waiting for another week or so. Being reasonably adept at things electric I popped the switchplate off and had a look at the selector switch. It's a pretty cheap switch type and I realised that there was a short across a pair of terminals as well as a dry joint. And to be honest the wiring is a bit of a mess! Anyway ... I moved bits around and the pickup came back to life. Back to playing and the guitar with both pickups working sounds great. Full and meaty with a great bite. Sounds like my kind of burger! My honest opinion about this guitar is it's well made, affordable and offers value for money as an entry level guitar or a good second string axe for the working musician. Beautifully finished and thoughtfully designed. Quality control is generally good but it's obvious where the savings are being made. The problem with dubious electrics on an electric guitar is pretty obvious. I have now replaced the wiring harness, pots and switch with genuine Fender parts. Have they made a difference to the sound? Not much but I feel more confident that my electric Artist guitar will remain electric when I need it most. After all an electric guitar with no electrics is an acoustic! A very quiet acoustic! By the way, I am about to order another of Artist's amazing offerings.
