Artist LP6G Cimmerian LP Style Electric Guitar with Active Pickups
The LP6G 'Cimmerian' is the next generation of what was originally Artist's 'Stealth' guitar. As a new example of an 'old faithful', this guitar offers a few quality improvements without radically altering the idea behind the original instrument.
The Les Paul style mahogany body is finished in matte black with a subtle vintage binding around the top and nice deep contour on the back that ensures that the guitar sits into your body very comfortably. The active humbucking pickups feature black covers and are secured by gold screws - a nice touch. The gold stop tailpiece and bridge along with the gold volume and tone knobs really add something to the look of this guitar. So not only does this axe play well it looks great particularly when you're standing under the lights and about to launch into that blistering solo!
The 24 fret neck is mahogany on a eco-rosewood board with the unique mother of pearl inlays a feature as is the bone nut.
The headstock has been purposely designed so that the strings maintain a straighter angle to each machine head. This can aid both in tuning and can also help lessen the annoying tendency for strings to snap at the nut.
The gold plated machine heads on this guitar are another great innovation - they look great but most importantly they work well.
This is definitely a guitar that offers value for money on many levels and there is no doubt that if you get your hands on it you may find it very difficult to put it down again.
