Artist LP59TRB Deluxe LP Electric Guitar Translucent Black + Bullbucke




Artist LP59TRB Deluxe LP Electric Guitar Translucent Black + Bullbuckers

The Artist LP59TRB guitar is our top of the line LP-style guitar whether it be for gigging or recording and is definitely one of the best LP-styled guitars on the market in relation to quality and price. This guitar has a great rock/ blues sound that easily produces that big fat fluid sound so typical of any good quality LP style guitar.

The body consists of a AAA grade veneer top that is finished off with a single-ply cream binding over carved maple and a back of solid mahogany. The plain sawn set neck is made of mahogany and has an eco-rosewood fretboard. The 22 fret neck is a comfortable "C" shape with trapezoid mother of pearl inlaid into the eco-rosewood fretboard. With the typical 24.75" scale length you are sure to bend notes as well as any blues or rock player going around.

The guitar is finished with an impressive Translucent Black while the back is a black polyurethane finish. The deluxe hardware consists of chrome locking tuners, lock-down-post Tune-O-Matic bridge with nickel saddles, and an aluminium Stop Tailpiece.

The Pickups we use on our LP59TRB are our signature Artist Bullbucker Pickups with Nickel Silver covers. The pickups on this model are COIL SPLITTING. They have a creamy smooth 'flute-like' sound on the neck pickup while the bridge pickup breaks up nicely with no harsh upper mids. They are both vintage-moderate output pickups. An added feature is that both pickups offer coil tapping which guarantees that this guitar will deliver a wide range of tonal options.

We also use the best electronic parts to reproduce the classic wiring configuration. 2 Volume and 2 Tone Control, standard 3-way toggle switch, Japanese Split Brass Shaft 500K Pots, 0.022uF,400V ceramic capacitors, and 1/4" Input Jack.

The factory strings are standard  D'Addario EXL110 strings.

Solid guitar in every sense of the word

By: Seth on 15 August 2020
There are some great things about this guitar - the flame top looks fantastic, the locking tuners are a bonus and a rarity at this price point. I had some problems with quality control like one volume knob turning further than it should but everything works fine. The pickups are decent. The biggest issue for me is its weight, the body seems entirely solid as mine weighs about 4.5kg. This could be a dealbreaker for some but otherwise it's a total bang-for-your buck guitar.

Best Guitar I’ve ever played

By: Aaron Eveans on 28 July 2020
I’ve had this bad boy for a couple months now and I have to say it is easily become my favourite. It’s as good as my epiphone pro with a hotter output and brighter tone, thanks in part to the BullBucker pickups that absolutely shred. I’m still amazed at the value for money with this guitar, everything about it screams high end workmanship and quality control. Gotta say Artist keep it up you guys rock!
