Artist LP59TSB Deluxe Electric Guitar Vintage Sunburst
The Artist LP59TSB guitar is top of the line. whether it's for gigging or recording, it'ss definitely one of the best guitars on the market for the quality and price. This guitar has a great rock/ blues sound that easily produces that big fat fluid sound so typical of this style guitar.
The body consists of a 5A grade flame maple veneer top that is finished off with a single-ply cream binding over a carved poplar cap and a back of solid African mahogany. The 22 fret neck is a comfortable ""C"" shape with trapezoid mother of pearl inlaid into the purple wood 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 Vintage Sunburst, while the back is a solid black polyurethane finish. The deluxe hardware consists of chrome locking tuners, lock-down-post Tune-O-Matic bridge with nickel saddles, and an aluminum Stop Tailpiece.
The Pickups we use on our LP59TSB 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 splitting 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.

Another great Artist guitarThis is the 4th Artist guitar I've bought and again, I'm blown away. The build and quality is excellent, the Sound is fantastic, the delivery was quick (2 Days) and the price is right. The only thing I had to do was lower the string height and I did that with no string buzz at all on a really low action. Not sure why they couldn't lower the strings when they set up these guitars as lots of reviews talk about needing to lower the strings. The intonation was close enough for me to not worry about it. Once again, I'm really happy with my purchase. Go buy one. You wont regret it.

Why wouldnt you get one ?After checking out the online reviews for the guitar, also hearing good and bad feedback (bad mostly about the packaging) I pulled the trigger on this one. Arrived in perfect order (Aussie Post, not courier so cant comment) and was suitably impressed. Excellent feel to the neck, no overhanging frets, smooth controls, coil splits working great and overall a fantastic guitar not only for the price but in terms of looks (is awesome) and sound both acoustically and plugged in (running into a marshall combo and no need for pedals), the only recommendation I would have would be if this could have a zebra pickup option as I prefer that look but overall a serious instrument well worthy of look. What have you got to lose?

Great value for money - LP59TSBVery happy with my recent purchase of the LP59TSB. It looks the goods, sounds good (pickups aren’t too hot), and arrived in good condition. Should you buy it? For sure. Here’s some things to consider: 1. It’s damn heavy. LPs aren’t light guitars, but I wouldn’t want to be playing a large number of sets with this thing. Artist really needs to look at their wood here, although I’m sure this could drive the price up. 2. Setup was good. Not great. Some fret buzz. Intonation issues. High action etc. But the fretboard, frets, tone controllers etc were all very nicely done. Again, cost. If there was an option for a final setup prior to deliver, I’d spend the extra bucks. All this said, it’s moans and niggles. Immediately playable. Could be better, that’s all. 3. Split coils are OK, but the single coil split really does lose a ton of output, and ultimately not a close replica of a single coil sound. Happy with the purchase and good enough I’ll be looking at other guitars.
Fantastic looking guitarI was deciding between this guitar and an Epiphone, I am glad I choose this one. It is a faction of the price and has the tobacco sunburst colour I was looking for with the push pull pickups. The quality of the guitar is fantastic! It arrived promptly and I am glad I decided on AusPost as I have better luck with them. This is my third Artist guitar and I am looking at more in the future. Given the 100 day free money back option and the 3 year warranty it is a no brainer.
