“When I started my own custom guitar shop in 2006, the first guitar I designed and released was the P-1. A 14” bout, single-cutaway body, with a humbucker in the neck and a T-style pickup in the bridge. It was my take on a customized guitar that I had played for many, many years. A few years later I decided that the 14” bout was a bit large for most people, and as much as I liked the humbucker in the neck, I thought a P-90 would match the T-style bridge pickup a bit better, so I decided it was time that original P-1 evolved. Since this guitar was the offspring of my first design, I thought it should be named after my first born, my son, Adam John. Thus the “AJ” was named and became a wonderful addition to my guitar family.
The AJ has a 13” lower bout, single-cutaway Alder body with stylized front and back contours, and a lower horn and neck heel that allow for easy access to the upper frets. The neck is the same medium C shape that I use on all my Classic models. It’s extremely comfortable and has enough mass to become a key component in the tone production on the entire instrument, especially when coupled to the body with my over-sized machine screws and threaded inserts. 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. I topped it all off with a black bakelite pickguard and shorty knurled chrome dome knobs.
The AJ is a really fun guitar. It is a great player, has killer tone, and has my signature, uniquely familiar styling. Welcome to the family, young AJ, welcome to the family!” John Page
