John Page on his JPC AJ (T-style) …
“This guitar is an evolution of the first guitar I designed when I started my custom shop in 2006, so I named it the AJ, after my firstborn son, Adam John. The AJ has a 13” bout, single-cutaway Alder body with stylized front and back contours and a lower horn and neck heel for easy access to the upper frets. The medium C neck is extremely comfortable and has enough mass to become a key component in the tone production, especially when coupled to the body with my over-sized machine screws and threaded inserts. The bass-justified fret dots improve visibility and aesthetic value, and reduce the need for string trees.
The Bloodline® JP-3P (P-90) pickup in the neck position is wound to give it much more clarity than is normally associated with that style of pickup. Partnered with the JP-3T, a classic T-style bridge pickup, the two blend to give you a great, full classic tone, but with lots of clarity.
The vintage T-style bridge plate has reverse angled pickup mounting to add more depth to the high strings and alleviate the ice pick highs usually associated with T-styles. The vintage style 3 brass saddles are step-compensated for more accurate intonation, and the controls, including a master volume, master tone, and a 3-position toggle switch, are all rear loaded for a clean, classic look.”
All AJ bodies are Alder except the Aqua Burst, which is Ash.
