Pickups from the John Page Perspective

It’s a new, more holistic approach to pickup design, focused on capturing that unique tone and character that is distinctly John Page.

John Page On His Bloodline® JP-1 Pickups

John Page describes the sonic perspective embodied in his Bloodline® JP-1 Pickups. Includes demo footage featuring Paul Riario of Guitar World magazine.


“I’ve worked really hard to design my guitars to create a specific acoustic tonal character, so it’s important for me to find pickups that duplicate that appropriately. In all of the pickups I use on my guitars, I’m listening for that special character. The one that captures the acoustic tone I design into my instruments… a full chesty mid, a healthy bottom, and a sparkly top end… with no ice pick highs! I want a full, stringy, almost harp-like tone. A pickup that sounds like you think it’s “supposed to sound like”, but with a JP twist! My Bloodline® JP-1 pickups have that character. They cut the BS and let you get down to your creative core.” John Page


Bloodline® JP-1 pickups bring the sonic perspective and character of John Page, among the world’s greatest living custom luthiers, to your guitar. They have a classic early 60’s S-style tone - stringy with great clarity, full and meaty but not overly hot. In John’s words, “It’s time to start feeling your guitar as well as hearing it – and my Bloodline® JP-1 pickups can help.”

Bloodline® by John Page JP-2


“I love the richness associated with traditional humbuckers and the aesthetic of the old metal covers. But I don’t like the muddiness or lack of clarity associated with most humbuckers, especially when they have covers. Enter the new Bloodline® JP-2 humbuckers. Voiced to give you a classic humbucking tone but slightly underwound to give you clarity when encased in a metal cover. You get the warmth of a vintage PAF but with more clarity and a sparkly top end. Classy-sounding, but able to break up nicely when you want to. In essence, a modern/classic humbucking tone.” John Page

Bloodline® by John Page JP-3


“The JP-3P has a really nice, full bottom end, with punchy mids and a clean top end. It has a bit more clarity than is normally associated with a P-90, and no mud! It’s a nice thick sounding single coil. The JP-3T pays homage to a classic T-style bridge pickup. It’s clean and snappy, but roll the tone off a bit and turn up the volume and it’ll give you all the punch and growl you need.” John Page


The JP-3P P-90 neck pickup is wound for more clarity than normally associated with a P-90. Partnered with the JP-3T, a classic T-style bridge pickup, the two blend to produce a great, full classic tone but with greater clarity.
