Artist BCHYTRB Translucent Black Hollow Body Electric Guitar
Artist Translucent Black Hollow Body Electric Guitar
For something with a little more versatility than the Cherry58, this Artist Translucent Black Hollow Body Electric Guitar is phenomenal. Based on feedback from the Cherry58, new additions include a roller vibrato tremolo, and an ebony fretboard on maple.
While retaining many of the features of the more traditional Cherry 58 the Artist BCHYTRB differs because of the addition of the roller vibrato. This Bigsby style vibrato was popular in rockabilly from its earliest days and now has gained widespread popularity across many styles of music both on stage and in the recording studio. With the typical set-neck that typifies most 335 style guitars, this is a great instrument for anybody looking for something unique in their sound. Like the body, the neck is constructed of maple on an ebony fretboard. This wood is a fine substitute for rosewood which is now considered a highly endangered species and as a result is rarely if ever used in general guitar building these days. The 22 frets show off the 'Dot' shaped plastic inlays and when you add to the comfortable "C" shape neck the Bigsby style roller vibrato system you have a great budget-priced guitar in every way.
The Artist Black Cherry sports chrome-covered Humbuckers with Alnico V magnets which means that you have the option of the warm throaty tones of the neck pickup or the biting clean sounds of the bridge pickup. When you set your toggle switch in between neck and bridge pickup you get that wonderful almost out of phase sound so this is an extremely versatile guitar that will be very responsive under your fingers. The addition of push-pull coil-splitting on both pickups is an extremely useful and versatile addition offering single-coil/ humbucker configurations in a variety of options to this wonderful instrument.
