Exceptional Quality for the price !
The MAC350 Mandolin Hard Case is exceptional Quality for the price. I don't think you can find anything better !! Very Quick Delivery as well at no extra cost. Highly recommended.
In my opinion this amp is better sounding than blues junior
Originally I played through a mates Fender blues junior amp as I was looking to get an all tube amp. Then came across Artist tweed tone 20r amp and did a lot of research and comparison between the blues jnr and the tweed tone. Got the tweed tone and and can attest that this is a great value for money amp. The build is faultless and the breathy tube sound is superb places the harmonic over tones are superb and the reverb is adequate. Ive had it for 3 months and still remain impressed. Even my mate with the Fender BJ was blown away by this little champion of an amp.
Very good guitars
I got the LP59 And very happy with how it plays started getting back into playing everyday and found artist guitars made the purchase, they are great value for money they also started making the Floyd rose style guitars I was about to purchase but they sold out and not sure if they are the making them , I think you have to be quick so don’t wait too long .. hopefully more new models come soon I am keen to keep going on collecting them , cheers
Great quality for the price!
I got the Artist 5 string bass guitar and it was awesome on so many levels. Before hand I owned a FenderJaguar Bass. That went in its case as I heard the tone and just the feel of the guitar. Definitely top quality for the price!!
TC59 is a fantastic guitar
I've played guitar for about 40 years. I have never owned high end gear but own what most would consider mid range guitars. I own, eg. mexican Strat, Michael Kelly Jumbo FT, Eastwood P90 Special, various old pawnshop Ibanez, aria, yamaha and the like, old Teiscos etc. I do own high end bass guitars ( ernie ball bongo, fender P) and have played bass in working bands. I go by the feel/chime of a guitar not the brand. The TC-59 is comparable in every way to a mid-range guitar costing $700- 1000 these days. Had mine for about 2 months and play it ...daily. It stays in tune, neck has a nice feel. My only gripe is the action is a bit low. I play without a pick in a fingerstyle blues fashion a lot so I will get around to raising the action a tad ( one of these days). The question is, what will my next guitar purchase be from Artist Guitars..decision, decisions :)
TC59 is just Great
This is an excellent guitar. Crazy price for the quality and experience. Artist were really good to deal with (email and phone). Courier was fine for North Qld.
Terrible experience. My partner bought me a bass and amp pack as a birthday present. It took 4 weeks for the bass to turn up, which was damaged, and the amp was missing. Spoke to the customer service people and they said to return the damaged bass and they would send a new one as soon as they received it back. Took 4 days for it to get back there and then they say they don't have the sunburst colour in stock anymore, even though the website says it does, so I can either have a black one or just have to wait until more stock turns up. They could...of checked stock levels before they got me to send the guitar back and told me to hold onto it until they got more stock so that I could at least start playing. Only bought through these guys to start with because I wanted the sunburst, if I wanted a black bass I would of got from somewhere else cheaper. Would of loved this to have been a positive experience but instead it was terrible and the staff couldn't care less.
Quick delivery quality products
Estimated delivery time was 10 days arrived in 3. They forgot to include the foot pedal but for the price, what I did get I wasn’t to bothered by it. Would definitely recommend their products
I have bought and used these strings before and been very happy with them for the price. Recently bought a pile more of them and am still waiting for delivery 3 weeks later. Even with the difficulties with COVID this an unacceptably long time. For context, I bought a loaded pick guard and tuners from the USA on the same day and it was delivered 5 days later. Guys, you need to sort out your couriers. Aust post regular mail delivery would be faster.

Fantastic guitar package
Bought the Artist STH black electric guitar with 10w amp set plus a guitar stand after a lot of dithering. Great communication all through the process, and super fast delivery - the pack arrived the next day. Everything in great condition (and the guitar bag was of better quality than I expected - rather sturdy, actually) and the guitar itself was set up nicely. After three weeks of playing I've noticed it keeps in tune quite nicely too. The amp is louder than you might expect and does what it's meant to. I like the Drive button feature too for the more metal/trashy/distortion sounds. Very pleased with the guitar packed and Artist Guitars overall and definitely recommend.
I purchased a electronic drum kit form artists and ending up returning it. it was hassle free and easy, the staff were friendly and they replied quickly would definitely recommend.
Getting a bit of a collection.
An AG105RD bass. A TC59 guitar and hard case. A Joyo JTA-05 amp. A DA-30BT amp. A BA30 amp. Bullbuckers. Viva acoustic pickups. Strings. A GD6 drum stool with back. A 7 guitar rack. Various cables. A string winder. Tuners. Etc, etc. Do you get the idea that I am happy with this company?
The first thing I ordered was the Joyo JTA-05 amp. Upon unboxing it, and plugging it in, and giving the tubes time to warm up, there was no sound, nor sign the tubes were getting power, so I phoned customer service, they were very pleasant, and after going th...rough everything that could be wrong, which was no bother, they emailed me a return address form to put on the box to return it via Australia Post. All free of charge, and another amp was sent out. This one is still working a couple of years later. I have recommended Artist to friends who have also been very happy with their gear. Go Australia Post vs courier if you can. That's the reason for the shipping rating. But Artist themselves are very good to deal with, and have a good range of equipment, from beginner grade, which is still ok, through intermediate, and even some gear that will keep seasoned players happy. I reckon only gear snobs wouldn't be satisfied. With 100 day free return policy, I can't quite fathom the few negative reviews. All I can say is order and enjoy.
Guitar shops can't compete
After being financially taken advantage of all my life by guitar stores, I was amazed when I purchased the TC 59 guitar from Artist $279. I set the intonation, string height and pickup height. That's it! It plays and sounds amazing! The split coil humbuckers sound too good to be true. It has a very comfortable C shape neck and a big heavy ash body. I could go on and on. Artist guitars are serious instruments. It makes you realise how much Squires are riding the wake of fender...and guitar shops are charging you too much $$$.
Exceptional quality. My LP59 exceedes my most expensive Epi's
I ordered the LP59 as a back up guitar to protect my signature Les Paul. I never expected this Artist guitar to be actually better. Especially the hardware. Locking tuners that are smooth as butter, roller bridge, coil splitting pull knobs and pickups that sound amazing to say the least. Trust me, if you get one of these it wont disappoint.
Great products. outstanding value.
I have 2 artist guitars and have also purchased cases and miscellaneous gear.
Incredible value for money. Better than some of my way more expensive guitars. Service is great. Highly recommend them.
Ordered guitar strings and a guitar lead, and as usual excellent quality and super fast delivery, not to mention bargin prices...all my guitar accessories I purchase from artist guitars, now I just ordered a studio microphone...
Super fast postage
Ordered guitar and amp on Friday morning, it was dispatched from Sydney that afternoon and arrived in Melbourne via Courier's Please on Monday. Everything in top order so very pleased with the whole thing.
Great store, great service and prices
Excellent guitar store. Mainly deal in own brand, chinese-made guitars, basses and accessories. Also sell a variety of other music-related stuff, including those from reputable brands. Excellent selection of strings too.
Despite being china-made and very reasonably priced, own brand of instruments are nothing short of excellent. I'm a luthier by a hobby, both making and fixing electric guitars and i'm yet to get one from Artist that I would find not satisfactory. Often they are just straight great instruments. Apart from 3/4 and 1/2 size gui...tars i've dealt with every electric guitar and bass they sell (and own myself around 8 of them), all being really well made and sound great. QC is very stringent: i've seen few guitars of theirs purchased as 'factory seconds' and I couldn't find what's wrong apart from maybe tiny chip of paint somewhere hidden. Very untypical for chinese products, internal electrics and soldering are of pretty high standard. I've seen plenty of big brand names doing way worse (hello gibson!). Pots and tuners are a bit of hit/miss on cheaper ones, but higher price range is very solid. After-sale support is excellent, follow-ups from representative inquiring if any assistance is needed are norm, and generally you'll feel loved as a customer. Never had to return anything, but from what i gather returns are a breeze too. Shipping is fast, mostly free. I live in rural victoria and it takes a day or two to get fairly bulky items my way. Now, can they get better in terms of service? Probably not. It's great, seriously.

Best online guitar gear store!
I'm a long-time Artist Guitars customer (over six years now), and I've bought many, many items from them, ranging from picks / capos / pedals / hard cases through to higher-end guitars and amps. Right now, I own six Artist guitars - a TC59 Telecaster, a VHYB5 5-string P-J Bass, a Spiritus7 7-String Electric, an OMS8FEQ Acoustic-Electric, an HG39303CEQ Classical, and an OS60EQ Parlour Acoustic-Electric, and I'd rate each of those as excellent. (You guitarists out there will recognise the symptoms of severe G.A.S. (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) :-)....Yes, they're all made in S.E. Asia, but then so are many "name brand" guitars costing two or three times what AG charge. Consistently, build quality has been first-rate, set-up on delivery has been good (only some minor action/intonation tweaking needed), and pre- and after-sales service has been superb. And no, I don't work for Artist Guitars - in fact, I've never even visited their store, as I live in provincial Queensland. These guys have managed to optimise price, quality, and service, and they deserve the high ratings they score. And on the rare occasions when I've encountered a problem, it has been sorted courteously, quickly, and to my complete satisfaction. If I could award them 6 stars out of 5, I would.
It would've been a 5 star review if not for their choice in Courier
You guys were fantastic to deal with and helping me sort out my delivery issues, seemed very nice and helpful. Unfortunately your choice in Couriers Please is a real let down as they have a very poor service and have failed to deliver the item requested by the date due to the drivers negligence.
Its because of Couriers Please that I wont be shopping with you guys again until you change courier services.
