Artist AP59GT90 Gold Top Electric Guitar w/ P90 Pickups

We've heard your feedback and given this ever-popular model a bit of a refresh! With an updated gold-coloured top that is more faithful to its vintage inspiration than our former LP59GT90, the new Artist AP59GT90 combines the best of classic aesthetics with modern versatility, making it a guitar that can do just about anything!

Featuring two splittable ''soapbar''-style P90 Pickups, the push-pull knobs can be switched between normal P90s, and stacked, creating thick humbucker-like tones that distort beautifully! With chrome locking tuners, a Tune-O-Matic Bridge with roller saddles, and a locking stop bar tailpiece, we've ensured the AP59GT90 does not suffer the same pitfalls as other guitars in this price range by appointing it with the best hardware available at this price point!

The African Mahogany body is finished with a single-ply cream binding over a carved poplar cap, with a very thin basswood veneer that provides an ultra-smooth paint finish. The set neck is made of mahogany and features 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.

Artist LP59 Gold Top Electric Guitar w/ P90 Pickups

The LP59GT90 features a Gold coloured top and two Cream ''soapbar''-style P90 Pickups. These stacked P90 Pickups are coil-splitting, so using the push/pull control knobs they can be switched between normal P90s, and stacked, creating humbucker-like tones. 

The Artist LP59GT90 guitar is a 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 top-end guitar of this style.

The African Mahogany body is finished off with a single-ply cream binding over a carved poplar cap, with a very thin basswood veneer that provides an ultra-smooth paint finish. The set neck is made of mahogany and features 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. It features deluxe hardware, with chrome locking tuners, a Tune-O-Matic Bridge with Roller saddles, and a Locking Stop Bar 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, Split Shaft 500K pots, 0.022uf ceramic capacitors and 1/4'' Input Jack.
