Artist LP59CSB Deluxe Electric Guitar Cherry Burst + Bullbuckers
Artist LP59CSB Deluxe Electric Guitar Cherry Sunburst
The Artist LP59CSB guitar is our top of the line guitar. whether it be for gigging or recording, this is definitely one of the best 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 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 Cherry Sunburst while the back is a clear polyurethane finish. The deluxe hardware consists of chrome locking tuners, lock-down-post Tune-O-Matic bridge with roller saddles, and an aluminium Stop Tailpiece.
The Pickups we use on our LP59CSB are our signature Artist Bullbucker Pickups with Nickel Silver covers. The pickups on this model are COIL SPLITTING. They have a creamy smooth 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.

Outstanding LP tribute guitar!By: Nicolo on 27 July 2021What an amazing guitar this is! Everything sound and feels way more premium than the price tag on this Les Paul homage guitar. The pickups produce a fantastic powerful gritty sound and give you a lot to play with thanks to the split coils managed by the supersmooth POTs. The locking tuners are another great feature, something I didn't know I needed in my life, and now I cant live without! It looks spectacular front and back. Playability is top notch, and it is super easy to set up compared to a Strat like guitar. The Tune-o-matic style bridge works exactly as it should, and honestly I couldn't be happier with my purchase...Buy with confidence! Thank you Artist Guitars.

More guitar for less moneyBy: Sil on 27 May 2021I have two of these and also own a couple of Gibson Standards and Gibson Custom Shop R8/R9/R0. I bought these as my practice guitars and use my Gibsons for special events like gigs and whatnots. My LP59s are 3.7kgs and 4.5kgs in weight. I use the lighter one a lot. The other one is a back breaker like a Gibson Traditional (but it's common with any LP guitar brand, bring a weighting scale when you pick and buy your guitar LOL). The neck pickup is super smooth but I find the bridge pickup too aggressive. I have since replaced the bridge pickup with a medium output humbucker and it made a lot of difference. Since this is a "59", the neck is not as thick as a Gibson R9 (which is great) but closer to an R0. And there's real maple under the cap about a centimetre thick when you remove one of the pickups! The only guitar that I know that sports a maple cap is the PRS SE 245 but there is a big price difference between the two. I'm also surprised that the fretwork has plastic nib ends that you can only see on a real Gibson (great job Artist!). Overall, this is a really good guitar. How does it play and sound compared to a the real thing, you might ask? It's scary close. Really close. I gave it only 4 stars as the tailpiece is not really aluminium (as advertised) but the locking stud is alright. For the price, I can't really complain. Again, good job Artist Guitars!
By: Artist GuitarsThanks for your review and we're happy to know that you're satisfied with the guitar. If you could also respond to the email we sent so we can further assist you regarding your question about the tailpiece. Cheers!
Fantastic Alternative!By: Stuart on 22 April 2021The LP59 is my first LP Copy, i choose Artist Guitars as they are a local company and i didn't want to pay a premium for the Epiphone equivalent as i wasn't sure a LP was for me (usually a Tele guy) and i must say that this instrument has exceeded my expectations. The finish is great, the fret board and neck feel great and the pickups sound on point for the grunge pop sound i like. I was so impressed with it i recommended Artist to my dad who now owns the Cherry 335 (i'm waiting for the black to be in stock) and he loves it. prefers it over his 90's American fender strat for all his bluesy needs. I will be getting more Artist guitars based on my experience with this LP and i recommend to anyone who's looking for a copy and isn't sure if Tokai or Epiphone are for them, get this, it's well worth it and you support a fledgling aussie business!

A Great LP Copy For The Price!By: DMS Productions on 29 December 2020This guitar punches WELL above its price point. Build quality is immaculate, it's gorgeously finished, & flawless! I have seen sloppier finishing on high end Epiphones! Speaking of which, this guitar feels and plays BETTER than any Epi LP, and leans more to the better end of, JP Tokais out there! The neck is lovely, suits my stubby hands, the fretwork is amazing! Every fret is dead level, no dead spots or fret outs! I lowered the bridge all the way, and it was still playable. YES the strings buzzed, but once I gave a 1/4 turn on the treble side and 3/4 turn on the bass side, I acheived a great, low playing action. The pick ups sounds great, and the bone nut is cut perfectly. I had my repairer look at it, (he used to work at Maton) and he could not fault its build quality! Now, however, with all the good, there HAS to be some bad! (Thankfully minor!) The roller bridge on my guitar, had 3 jammed intonation screws & were very hard to turn to intonate! Also the locking tuners, were next to useless, with lots of play and inconsistent tension, making tuning difficult! BUT, Artist came to the party with a replacement Gotoh roller bridge, and it's FIXED the intonation, however, not the tuners. I have already replaced them with a new set of Gotohs, and it tunes perfectly and stays there. (NO play!) As to the electronics, they all work as they shoould, however, the small volume pots have a very poor taper and only really start to work when almost off! I will be replacing these with better, large pots! BUT, as I said these are only MINOR hiccoughs, in hardware and does NOT detract from the quality of the guitar it self! This ISN'T a $5K Gibson! (And THEY have problems!!!) But it seems to have LESS issues than its 'authentic' inspiration! I would STILL recommend this guitar over the Epiphone models, or the MIC Tokai Legacy series! A ROCKING axe! \m/
Love itBy: Dave B on 10 September 2020Had the LP59CSB for a while and it has become my first choice when I go for one of my guitars. The finish and parts (locking tuners) are amazing for this price point and it is so playable. I top wrapped the tail piece and it is so easy to bend with. The frets are very well finished and the neck suits me perfectly. It is heavy but its a LP so goes with the territory and it sits so well. And of course the flame maple top is just beautiful. very impressed
