One mean riffing machine!

By: on 31 March 2024
Bought mine last January of this year, the guitar came in spectacular condition, well set up, intonated and it chugs really well because of the active pickups. Really a bang for the buck riffing machine

A Not-So-Stealthy Performer

By: on 24 March 2024
This guitar chugs. The Finish is fantastic, the neck is comfortable and quick. The hardware looks mean and feels great. It also plays anything from 80's pop-rock to chuggy modern metal. I love playing it.

For the price of this guitar it really plays well. Holds in tune pretty good feels really smooth and very lightweight. Great for metal riffs. The pickups are goood all though they don’t have the classic Emg active pick up tone, more of a tight attack on these Artist pickups but not as much power as you’d get from an EMG or fishman pickup. But overall a great and fun guitar to play on! Bargain.

I initially bought this guitar during the over-stock sale for a really cheap price, thinking I was going to use it as a mod project guitar - but after having it for a little bit I think I'm just going to leave it as is! This guitar is very well put together, especially considering the low price - I'm actually pretty surprised. Frets are done well - still need a little bit of attention, but that's to be expected with most guitars in this price range! The black chrome hardware looks awesome and seems to hold tuning. The pickups sound great, which was surprising given they are cheaper actives! All mahogany body/neck feels solid, and the satin finish is really nice. If you're thinking about getting one of these, just do it, you won't regret it.

Good little Chugger

By: on 27 December 2021
This is my 5th Artist electric. The action's quite nice, it looks good and there are no ugly parts. It's my first guitar to have active pickups, and I generally like the sound clean and distorted, however I prefer the TC59 for everything except metal. The fret ends aren't sharp although the frets aren't super smooth so bends feel a little scratchy. For the price I can't knock it, which is why I keep buying them. The 24.5inch scale is a point of difference.

This guitar looks good in pictures and even better in person. It feels nice to hold but unfortunately it's my xmas present and Santa took it from me before I could play it. Bring on xmas

Artist Guitars Response
Thanks for the review. I am sure it will be sweeter to hold once Christmas comes around. We are happy to hear that you are loving the guitar.

Pretty damn good!

By: on 12 October 2021
Straight out of the box it needed minor adjustments, including a fret polish, tightening of the pots and action/intonation adjustments, after that fairly simple set up she's pretty much set, I've owned the indominus8 and the artist 7string of a similar black and grungy style and I loved both, this is just another bang for your buck option for high gain metal, very well done guys

lp6 beast

By: on 6 October 2021
So my bro got the tc59 from artist and was amazed by quality, that made me check out what they had, i usually play jackson pro series and ltds.. and this lp6 keeps up with them, active pups work great love my emg and SD Blackouts.. and these stock pups sound pretty sick.. for 299, crazy what you get quality up there with my 1500-2000$ axes

Artist Guitars Response
Thank you so much for sharing this awesome feedback!

This Artist LP Stealth is awesome!

By: on 22 August 2021
I ordered this beast recently and I have to say... It is quite impressive! I got it for my studio as I wanted an E standard guitar and it definitely holds up to my Cort EVL K6 and My PRS Paul Allender Signature Model guitars which retail at like 4x the cost. It's really nice to play plus it sounds mean! Funnily enough, it came basically already tuned to Drop C (I was lazy so I tuned the strings to closest pitch for the play around) and it was really quite surprising that the 10-46s it came with could hold tune.

Artist Stealth LP6 Matte Black

By: on 21 August 2021
I recently bought the Artist LP6 matte black guitar and I gotta say when I un-boxed it, it looked awesome. The Construction is really well done, plugged it in to the amp gave it a tune up and wow this as a standard set-up from the factory was really well done the sound was very surprisingly clear and precise. I saw this guitar on a YouTube video and I thought I gotta get me one of these so I ordered one online and got Australia Post to deliver it, it took a little longer to come out then I thought but that was due to the lockdowns that we have in Australia atm. Artist you guys have done a great job and yes you have a new repeated customer. I think now after receiving this awesome piece of art of a guitar I think I will be buying the reissue LP59 and a few of your effetcs. Thank you Artist, keep on being an awesome company that you are.

Impressed For The Money Too

By: on 9 August 2021
I bought this on a whim - I didn’t play much Guitar for quite a while etc.thought looks like a good deal here for minimal MoNey. It - CouriersPlease didn’t ring the doorbell so I had to go...yeah oUt to Pick It Up. Well I’m Glad I Did because this Guitar really is Great for how much you spend - I thought the Input Jack was a bit too hard to take the Lead out of, but worked a bit better when I turned the lead at the same time as I pulled - I don’t know.Maybe They Don’t Want Us To Stop Playing - I thought not that bad for Security if you want though I guess. DanELecTrO 9V BatteRy fOr Non-Metal Classic Tonez. Had a good time Playing the Stealth through a Line6 Spider V Practice Amp...Clear With Gain At Full.Nice Clean Sounds & All Around Good SOUND. Thx for the Good Work Artist Guitars.

Awesome! ... just awesome!

By: on 28 July 2021
For the price, this guitar is amazing!!! Yes, you'll need to do a set up (as with all new guitars). I have no complaints and it's a fantastic product... However, the pickups and general sound of the guitar is made for metal.... don't buy this and expect to play death cab for cutie on it.... it's for hard rock and metal.... that's it!

Artist Guitars Response
Thanks for the feedback and we're happy to hear that you're enjoying your new guitar. Cheers.

Awesome! ... just awesome!

So I bought this for a side project and had low expectations... well I was extremly surprised at the amazing quality I got! This guitar is awesome! It's made for metal and has no worries achieving it! Like all new guitars, it will require a set up... but straight out of the box was pretty good! I've had fenders in worse condition! Just get it, you won't be disappointed!

Thank you very much for your feedback on the guitar. This means a lot to us. We're always here if you have questions or need help. Cheers!

Great for Metal

By: on 9 April 2021
Got this today, my 6th Artist guitar. It did need a bit of set up, the action was way too high and the harmonics were out, but after dealing with these small issues it was good to go. The only "negative" thing i can say is this is not a "versatile" guitar. This is built for metal, as in HEAVY metal. If you play any other style this may not be the guitar for you. As for the quality of the guitar, as per usual for Artists signature guitars, it's superb and amazing value. One outstanding feature of this guitar is the 3rd knob. It has a volume for each pick up and then the 3rd knob is a gain boost for the active pickups. Great for boosting your solo without needing a pedal.

Artist Guitars Response
Thank you for the response. We are sorry for the inconvenience of the guitar requiring minor setting up but feel free to respond to the email we sent so we can further assist you. Cheers.

LP 6 Stealth

By: on 2 December 2020
I honestly didn't know what to expect for a budget guitar, but can state with absolute certainty that this guitar is amazing out of the box. Crisp, well built and gorgeous to look at, it plays like a dream. The quality has blown me away, and for its price it plays like a $2000 guitar. Very highly recommended to a seasoned player or a beginner.

Holy Mackerel!!!

By: on 23 November 2020
Well I finally got it today. I bought this based on the reviews & YouTube videos I had watched.To say I am impressed is an understatement , this thing is a beast & for $299 it is a WINNER!!! I have only bought from Artists Guitars once previously & that was an Epic Custom which was a low end Electric but suited its purpose at the time & has since been handed down to my 2nd oldest to begin his guitar journey.i spent a little more on this & with the 100 day free return policy I didn't stand much to lose so went ahead with the buy. This thing is a MONSTER!!! Has a great finish,feel & sound !!! I doubt anyone would be disappointed at this price point & a testament to how good these are they have already sold out with the half dozen they just got in stock.if my boy continues with the guitar I will get him one of these down the road. I am stocked with my 2nd purchase from Artist Guitars thanks guys for such an awesome guitar at an affordable price. I am already looking to purchase a couple other guitars & products from you guys mainly the LP Gold top & Blue Cloud ST. I am sure they will be of a high standard as well! WOOOOHOOO :) :) :) Stoked... baby...yeeeeah...Oh behave...YEEEAH!!!

Great Metal guitar

By: on 21 June 2020
I just got one of these guitars after a friend told me about them and I was looking for a new guitar on a low budget that sounds nice and has amazing pickups and looks and sounds amazing in clean and distortion it has great sustain.

Bang for your Buck

By: on 10 June 2020
Received my LP Stealth in record time. Plugged it in straight out of the box, quick tweak for tuning and then WOW!!! This thing is a beast! Well worth the tiny price tag and more. Full tone, and just pure aggression. I’m in love.


By: on 21 May 2020
My Stealth LP6 arrived within a week of ordering and it's fantastic. The finish looks great, it plays really well and sounds awesome with the active pickups (battery included!). Highly recommended!

Great guitar, nice finish, highly recommend and wi

By: on 19 May 2020
This is a great guitar if you want a lp style guitar for your collection.. I bought mine to tinker with a little but you honestly wouldn't have to spend on it if you didn't want to. Highly recommend to anyone.

superb LP style guitar

By: on 15 May 2020
I have been playing mine for a couple of weeks now and it is truly great. I haven't as yet used any sound effects but as clean it has a wonderful tone and sound. The only thing I have done so far was to lower the action a little as I prefer a low action. I intend to purchase other examples from Artist in the near future.

Great fit, finish and play-ability

By: on 5 May 2020
I love this guitar. The matte black finish is really nice and allows smooth playing up and down the neck. Thin D shaped neck suits my smaller hands and/or shredders. I think the narrow headstock and tapering tuners allow it to hold a tune way better than I was expecting. White and black 3 stripe binding gives it a little more detail up close. And it arrived on my doorstep in Melbourne the next day. I couldn't be happier.


By: on 30 April 2020
nice looking guitar in black... use this for low D tuning (whole step)..handle well.. good sounds from the pickup's.. Recommend ...

Worth the wait??

By: on 23 April 2020
I ordered my guitar and it took some time to arrive, about 2 weeks (not through any fault of Artist Guitars) was it worth the wait?? HELL YES!! I love this guitar. I have played on a friends Gibson Les Paul prior to ordering this guitar and this feels better in my hands than the Gibson. The sound is fantastic, the quality just as good. If you want a Les Paul style guitar this is the one you should be ordering. I use this to record and gig and it is my got to guitar. Thank you Artist Guitars - a great Aussie company!!

Absolutely Stoked!

I just got this bad boy at my door about half an hour ago and so far i'm so impressed with how good this guitar is for the price. Looks great, plays great and on top of that it had only taken a day to get here!Honestly couldn't be happier, I'm definitely recommending to my friends and i'm definitely coming to this website to buy again :)
