"The Ashburn is everything I strive for in my designs … beautiful timeless lines with rich, classic tones.” John Page
Why The Ashburn
To bring you custom design magic from one of the world’s greatest custom luthiers - in a production guitar. That was the vision of Howard Swimmer, Founder & CEO of HRS Unlimited, parent company of John Page Classic guitars and Bloodline® Pickups. And that’s why we call the Ashburn the Custom Production Guitar™. The Ashburn is meticulously designed by John Page to perfectly embody his Uniquely Familiar™ custom design ethos, built to his exacting standards and set up in the US by John Page authorized techs.
The Designer's Vision
“After nearly 40 years as a guitar designer and builder, I was shooting for a richer, more complex tone. The neck interaction with the body is critical in achieving this complexity, as are the material choices and electronics. Fluid lines, rich and chimey tones, effortless playability and fretboard access… lessons learned leading to this particular moment.” John Page
