Artist LP59TSB Deluxe Electric Guitar Vintage Sunburst
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 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 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.

Why wouldnt you get one ?By: Warwick on 18 March 2021After 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?
By: Artist GuitarsThank you for the trust and for your order with us. We are happy to hear that you are satisfied with the guitar. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or concerns. Cheers!
Great value for money - LP59TSBBy: Rod Farmer on 1 January 2021Very 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 guitarBy: Ian on 17 June 2020I 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.
Perfect for me!By: Pieter Siebel on 5 June 2020Love this guitar! Barely any difference in sound to the Epiphone Tribute when coupled with a Marshall DSL 40C. The best value guitar at this price point, well built with an easy to play neck. Coupled with GREAT customer service (thanks Molly for your patience). Thanks Artist Guitars.
Beautiful GuitarBy: Paul McKaskill on 23 May 2020Love at first sight. First of all I'm only a lowly Bass player. I have taught myself to play basic chords on an acoustic guitar. I wanted to try electric guitar so I could use pedals to have some fun with. When I unpacked this one from the box I couldn't believe how beautiful this instrument was. If I don't master this guitar I don't care it is one fine looking piece of equipment that looks really good in my music room. My son who is a guitarist reckons it plays pretty smooth which is a strange comment from a metal head. Great guitar for the price, more than I expected.
LP59tsbBy: Denis on 11 May 2020Just received my LP style guitar this afternoon, straight out of the box , quick tune up , wow , this thing plays really well . The quality is way better than I expected it to be for the money . Sounds great , the split coil is not really for me but that’s not why I bought it . The tuners , bridge , knobs and switch all seem great quality . First impressions are all positive. Sure , it hasn’t got THAT name but I don’t care about that . Thanks Artist guitars for a great product . I’ll be back .
