Artist LP59GT90 Electric Guitar Gold Top with P90 Style Pickups
Artist LP59GT90 Electric Guitar Gold Top with P90 Style Pickups
One of the models to add variety to our LP59 Deluxe Electric Guitars. It features a Gold coloured Top and 2 Cream-coloured P90 Style Pickups. These P90 Pickups have been stacked and can be switched between normal P90's, and Stacked P90's (act like humbuckers) By Pulling the Knob out. The pickups on this model are COIL SPLITTING
The Artist LP59GT90 guitar is our top of the line guitar whether it be for gigging or recording and 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 Mahogany top that is finished off with a single-ply cream binding over carved basswood 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 Gold Top 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.
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 Push/ Pull Pots, 0.022uF,400V ceramic capacitors, and 1/4" Input Jack.
The factory strings are standard D'Addario EXL110 strings.

Gold top goodnessBy: Bernie Rourke on 11 June 2021After a few hassles with courier delivery times my Goldtop arrived on my birthday. I have to say it was an awesome birthday gift to myself. I cannot fault Artist at all for their level of contact and communication. The guitar arrived (on my birthday) and the finish and colour was simply amazing. The ONLY issue was one pot sitting way higher than the rest but I have since sorted that out myself and did not affect the look or function of the guitar. The stacked P90 sized Humbuckers are so good that I tend to only run them in Humbucker mode and not P90 mode...whodathunkit...I've been a P90 guy for years. All in all I'm very impressed with Artist...now we just need that DC P90 and away we go :)
By: Artist GuitarsThank you very much for your feedback on the guitar and we are very glad that you like it. If you have any questions or need assistance, feel free to contact us. Cheers!
Great Value and QualityBy: Jesmond on 12 May 2021I now have eight Artist Guitars and one bass, and I can't fault any of them. Most were ready to play straight out of the box, and others just needed minor adjustments and a string change. The Gold Top is a gorgeous guitar with a great finish. I love the P90 style pickups. I haven't bought another brand of guitar for ages because I love the quality and price of the Artist guitars, plus the fantastic service and the security of the warranty. I'm only an amateur player, but the price and quality of Artist guitars has enabled me to grow a stable of guitars with different tones and feel, and it motivates me to play more often. Most of my brand name guitars have been languishing in their cases, and all my Artist guitars are on a stand for easy access. Artist Guitars have a great business model and are customer-centred. I hope they are still around when I become a grandfather because they will be my go to store for Christmas and birthday presents!

WOW!!!By: Jamie on 24 February 2021This is my 3rd guitar from Artists .1st impressions OMG how beautiful is that FINISH!!! Wanted a replacement for my Epi GT which had the neck broken years back & hadn't got around to it. That is until I came across the Artist Guitars GT offering in the 59 with P90 style PU. May still get an Epi GT for the collection down the track but for now this guitar is very satisfying in all areas. Finish is Superb cannot say enough about that AMAZING!!! Very comfortable to play,nice comfortable weight ,sounds amazing with great sustain good tuners. very happy with the price,quality & service WINNER WINNER :) :) I will sleep with this tonight :) haha

MattBy: Krystel on 24 February 2021Lp59 goldtop This is a beautiful looking guitar, it was pretty much set up when it arrived I just changed the strings and adjusted the action to my liking. I haven’t been able to put it down since it arrived. I’ve bought a few items from artist and it’s always quick delivery and good customer service.
By: Artist GuitarsThank you for your order with us and we are happy to know that you love your Lp59 gold top guitar!
Artist LP59GT90 LP Electric Guitar Gold Top with PBy: Roger on 21 February 2021Must admit I was a bit hesitant at first but after playing this baby for a while I am blown away! The action was pretty good straight out of the box. A little high for my taste but no big deal. General finish and presentation were excellent at this price point and not that much different to my Les Paul. No sharp fret ends, lovely gold finish and push-pull controls offer different tones as well as reducing the noise associated with P90 style PU's. Very impressed indeed !! We done Artist team.
By: Artist GuitarsNo worries and thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review Roger! We appreciate the support!
I have a Gold Top.By: james on 15 January 2021OMG it arrived and now I own an LP GT. This beast is all class, she's a heavy girl and sounds like a dream. Out of the box it required a tune...and that was all, intonation and action are acceptable, I love to lower the action on my guitars but this one didn't need it so now I have nothing to do except play my new guitar with unexpected coil splitting to sweeten an already brilliant deal. 11/10 Artist guitars, you've done it again.
A Classic Guitar at a great price!By: Rob McCarthy on 13 January 2021My new Artist LP59GT90 Gold Top is brilliant. It's finish is great, the playability and sound is fantastic. It has that 'Old School' 50s-60s sound perfect for Rock, Blues and Jazz. A big surprise is the P90 style single coil pickups are stacked and switchable! Press in the volume control and you get that big blues rock sound. Pull out the volume control and you get a quieter brighter sweet tone still with classic single coil sound but with no hum or buzz! This new build axe is a winner. Thanks Artist for listening to your customers and delivering. Highly recommended!
Best ever!By: Robert on 9 January 2021I love this even more than my Artist LP59CSB. The finish is magnificent, The Gold Top color is closer to the Gibson than the current Epiphone model. The playability is spot on for me and the sound of those P90s is the best. It gives just the right sound for Blues/Rock. Can't recommend it any higher! Thanks Artist!
You have done it again....By: Oliver on 7 January 2021I have just recived my LP59GT90 & what can I say, other than you have delivered for me again. I first owned a LP60 & build one of there Stratocaster Kits. These were good fun and I learned alot. But it's there newest range that really shines. I have a BROWNBURST 58 X that has been a great guitar & is one of my favorites. Now the LP59GT90 - it's a step up again. Build is spot on. I have been really impressed with Artist's range and service. Thank you.
Absolute Bargain Guitars and Amps.By: Rob Bishop on 27 November 2020I have the Cherry 58, which is comparable to the 3 Gibson ES335's that I have owned over the last 40 years. I then got a TC59 , and a Tweedtone 20R Amp. Just blown away with the Build quality, finish, and great sounds. Way to go Artist. Next purchase will be The Les Paul Goldtop.
