Artist LP59CSB Deluxe LP Electric Guitar Cherry Burst + Bullbuckers
Artist LP59CSB Deluxe LP Electric Guitar Cherry Sunburst
The Artist LP59CSB guitar is our top of the line LP-style guitar. whether it be for gigging or recording, this 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 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.

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
