Artist AP58J TV Yellow Electric Guitar w/ P90 Pickup

The Artist AP58J is a premium double-cutaway guitar. If you're looking for a minimalist rock and roll dream-machine, this AP58J is the choice for you; punchy mids, beefy highs and a very cool finish!

It features a timeless TV Yellow finish over a solid African Mahogany body, with a simple black scratch plate completing this classic look. The Mahogany set neck has a high-grade Eco-Rosewood fretboard, Dot Mother of Pearl Inlays, 22 frets in a 24.75"" scale length, and a comfortable C-shape radius.

The AP54J also features a Wilkinson wrap-around bridge, with adjustable bridge posts and saddles to lock in your intonation, and the 43mm Bone nut and Chrome machine heads will keep you in tune through any Rolling Stones covers set! With a single dog-ear P90 in the bridge position, the AP58J has got some serious bite, and we have used premium-grade hardware to ensure the tone and volume controls are responsive to the touch.

With just a single Volume and Tone knob, this guitar has a surprising tonal range for those willing to experiment with their controls. Alternatively, this is the perfect guitar to just turn everything up, plug into a cranked amp, and let rip!

This comes strung from the factory with D'Addario EXL110 strings.

Product review , Artist AP58J

By: on 10 June 2024
I bought this guitar to use as a back up , for my old Ibanez Les Paul jr . I changed the frets and fitted a humbucker " not that there was anything wrong with the existing frets or P 90 pickup " but because I needed it to sound and feel like my old guitar . I cant fault the build quality , materials or finish , the bridge is a very nice design , just loosen the strings a bit before adjusting the action because under tension the bridge positioning grub scews tend to bite into the bridge posts . A great guitar at twice the price , I'm considering buying another one , and just retiring my old Ibanez altogether .

AP58J with P90 pick up

By: on 8 June 2024
Once again (for the eighth time),have basically no need to adjust anything on this guitar to start playing, intonation and string action close to ideal for me. Love this guitar, keep volume up and tone down for clean and crank the knob for a dirty tone.Just what I needed in my small collection,a bare bones instrument which is fast becoming my favourite to play. Thanks Artist Guitars......you've done it again!!

Fantastic Value

By: on 7 June 2024
I have always wanted a LP Junior but was unsure how I would take to it given its limited versatility (on paper) compared to my usual starts, tells, PRS guitars with multiple pickup configurations etc so I thought I would try an Artist interpretation of it before taking the full plunge. I was immediately impressed by the playability and sound from the Artist guitar, when you consider the low price, I am genuinely amazed how they can produce and ship it to you for the price. Tuning stability isn't amazing and I will probably swap out the machine heads to address this, but otherwise I cant complain. It is also a great looking guitar and I would be happy to gig with it.

great feel, the pickup in it is a little bit eh but i'll be replacing it anyway. tuning stability is solid, needed very little setup out of the box and is great for banging out power chords or little blues-y licks

Surprisingly good

By: on 31 October 2023
For the price this thing is really good, tuning stability is a bit hit and miss but sounds decent, no sharp fret ends, overall finish is great. I'm not so big on the eco rosewood fretboard but it's not completely bad.

I bought this guitar because I have always wanted a TV Yellow Double Cut Junior style guitar and wasn’t prepared to spend the outrageous money to procure a genuine G brand. Don’t get me wrong I have the premium guitar brands in my current collection but didn’t want to pay an arm and a leg to get this style of guitar. Upon receiving the guitar I was extremely impressed with the way it was presented and the prompt delivery. It only took a couple of days to get from Sydney to Melbourne. Although the colour isn’t quite as authentic looking the finish is amazing. The hardware is much better than I expected and plugged in this thing roars. I especially love the neck profile, nice and full but not too chunky. I have a Tokai Heritage series DC Junior as well as a Harley Benton DC Junior with swapped out pickups and electronics and this thing holds its own up against both of them. Value and Bang For Buck I can’t fault it. Stop reading this and get on the Artist guitars website and order one.

TV Yellow DC Junior

By: on 6 October 2023
Great value guitar! It arrived well set up straight out of the box. Nut is cut to a good height, action is perfect and intonation is pretty close. Paint job is excellent. Neck is a medium C shape with no fret sprout. The Eco-Rosewood fretboard feels a little different, but hey, it keeps the price down. The pickup sounds quite good. I plan to replace it at a later point, but it's fine for the moment. The guitar holds tune and plays great, so why pay more ordering from over seas?

Awesome little bit of kit

By: on 2 October 2023
Ive always wanted an LPJ DC, a 50's as well, but the prices are outside of my budget, so finding this one with the correct set neck mahogany body and neck, not a bolt on was a great find, add to that the wraparound bridge and a dogeared P90 and this thing sounded great straight out of the box, great tones winding off the volume cleans up nice, crank it for serious attack and breakup, if I were to change one thing it maybe the pickup sometime down the line but the stock one is fine for now. great LPJ DC

Wow! Junior

By: on 30 September 2023
This is the best bang for buck guitar you can buy. No setup out of the box required. Compared to my ‘59 junior it is ridiculously good. The wilkinson bridge is far better than the 59 and the dogear p90 is almost exact. Slightly lower output and clarity but for $279 so damn close. The neck is super comfortable to play and the body finish is perfect. Frets are excellent smooth and no rough edges unlike a high end brand new 339 I bough eleswhere. Delivered quickly and well packaged. Artist are awesome and their communication and customer service are elite. Used the guitar at rehearsal last night, studio engineer thought I was using my ‘59 loved the sound. A very happy Artist customer.

The guitar that could roar.

By: on 29 September 2023
After watching the product react video, (from the great Bob Spencer ), I was keen to add this to my guitar collection, as I dont have a P90 type guitar, ( I am a Telecaster person ), and I do like the shape etc of this model. Straight out of the box, there was a small issue with the internal wiring, but a quick jiggle with pick up wires got it sounding just right. Im not into all the technical stuff, so all i can say is that is feels really easy to play. smooth neck and all the working parts work just fine. And sounds great, both clean, and with a little bit of crunch, and then with power cruch. it roars. Very happy with the product, the colour, the shape and the feel of the product. Will belloking at some other models as time goes on, and would recommend Artist guitars to anyone who asks.

Rock n Roll Machine

I ordered this guitar last year before it was released. Waited anxiously as it's release date was delayed. But the wait was worth it. It needed very little set up out of the box, feels fantastic to play, and sounds amazing! The dog-ear P90 is such a great little unit. I've bought 2 Artist Guitars now, and I haven't been disappointed with either.

My No. 1 go-to electric guitar!

By: on 24 June 2023
My review is late but I just can't put this Artist jnr down! I just love it and lusted after this type of P90 guitar for a while before pouncing on this great deal. The TV Yellow colour is great too. The P90s were really noisy so I had the cavities shielded and also had the bridge studs looked at because of their lean towards the headstock. It was easier for me to pay for this myself. Since then I’ve noticed the A string has a strange reverbating buzz.

Absoultely Rockin'

By: on 9 May 2023
Been gassing for a Junior for a while so I signed up for notifications back in January. Received an email to say they were back in stock and placed my order on 28th April. Glad I did, as they were sold out ina few days ! The guitar arrived on 8th May (a day early !) Really well packed and protected from transport knocks and bumps. Unwrapped it, tuned it, and it plays really well, exactly like the demo ! Could may be use a lower value tone cap, but I'll get to that later. What would be really awesome is a cherry red version with a thiker neck :) How can you go wrong with this level of quality at these crazy prices ?

little punk rock bottle rocket

By: on 6 February 2023
I bought this as a 'Customer Return' but it arrived spotless. Such a solid, yet light, build with a legit Set Neck on it. It's got a baseball bat-ish neck, nothing too extreme, matching it's obvious inspiration. The hardware is all decent, the bridge being a particularly nice piece of kit. The dog-ear pup is perfectly serviceable - but it is also the only component that might be worth upgrading. If you're in the market for a little punk rock bottle rocket : buy this, stick an aftermarket pickup of your choice into it and play hard.

Build quality is good, hardware is solid, fret board needed to be polished. Pickup is powerful @ 9.6 K but very noisy. I’m replacing pots and cap and shielding all cavities.

Best Thing Ever

By: on 10 January 2023
Hands down my favorite guitar design (the 1970 LPJr TV) and now I've finally gotten it made by my favorite company, I'm so happy with this beautiful guitar, it played perfect outta the box, didn't have to even intonate it or change strings or swap gauges, just tuned to C# standard and haven't adjusted a thing, it is just a perfect guitar (to me haha) fantastic tone, low noise, the pickup sounds punchy and bright but not sharp sounding on the ears, I've bought nearly seven Artist guitars over the years (from 6's to 8's) and this may be my absolute favorite so far, 10/10

Very versatile guitar

By: on 18 December 2022
This is a very versatile guitar, it's not just a rock machine, the tone pot works all the way to zero unlike some tone pots which are either all or nothing. You can get some really raunchy rock tones right down to jazz tones by using the volume and tone. The finish is second to none flawless. Frets are even with no buzzing anywhere. And the neck has edges have been rolled making this a really nice comfortable neck. The tuners are really good. What more can I say if you want a single pickup guitar then try this out. 10/10.
