Artist CHERRY58 TRD Hollow Body Electric Guitar
Artist CHERRY58TRD Hollow Body Electric Guitar
This classic style guitar has existed in many forms since it was first released in 1958. Since then it has been coveted by some of the greatest Rock 'n Roll, Blues, and Jazz guitarists that the world has ever known. Legendary names like BB King, Freddie King, John McLaughlin, Larry Carlton, Jorma Kaukonen, Eric Clapton, and Elvin Bishop are among the multitude of players who have loved the diverse tones that this type of instrument offers. Now it's your turn!
The Artist Cherry58 offers a perfect entry-level guitar for those wishing to begin their journey into the world of blues and Jazz. With the typical set-neck, this guitar is truly a "blues machine". Like the body, the neck is constructed of maple on an eco-friendly purpleheart 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 standard tune-o-Matic bridge and stop-bar tailpiece, you have a guitar that will not only feel great under your fingers but one that will sustain forever.
The Cherry58 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 which confirms that this is an extremely versatile guitar that will be very responsive under your fingers. You will be able to put a stamp on all those great blues solos and wail like the greats or you could darken the tone to suit the "cool" of any dingy little jazz club.
The Cherry58 awaits. Are you ready to take it on?
- It has a Low String Action (all our guitars are set-up at the factory for the optimum beginner playing level). String action is the measurement from the top of the 12th fret to the bottom of the string. This is very important because a guitar with a high action is hard to play, a guitar with too low an action will buzz and sound bad. Artist Guitars are set up at the factory for the optimum level for a beginner.
- Die-cast Machine Heads - This means your guitar will tune quicker, be more stable, and stay in tune longer.
- We include a range of Support Materials including how to tune, how to read tab, basic chord shapes, and much more.

Artist CherryBy: maniwishiwasrich on 14 July 2021I wanted to get a cheap classic blues style guitar and couldn't justify spending too much money while adding to my collection...I read and watched some reviews on this Cherry 58 model and heard they were a reasonable guitar at a reasonable price...and when it arrived I was pretty happy with my 299 purchase...it's not a bad looking copy for a decent price and actually plays ok...
How good is this !!By: Anonymous on 29 June 2021The bottom line is that this guitar could cost twice as much and still be worth every cent. Beautifully finished with a great sound.
Awesome valueBy: Bill Pritchard on 12 August 2019I will say I was sceptical about the review's I read and watched on you tube . But this guitar is awesome once I changed the strings and a bit of adjustment it was great I don't know how they do it for the money the pick ups sound great its easy to play. Easily as good as a epiphone of the same model but about ,$700 cheaper i love it
