John Page Classic - The Ashburn - Black Metallic Finish / Maple Board
"The Ashburn is everything I strive for in my designs … beautiful timeless lines with rich, classic tones.” - John Page
“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
A double-cutaway, solid body production guitar custom designed by John Page to be “uniquely familiar.” Featuring an extremely comfortable medium “C” shaped grip, threaded bolt neck assembly for greater tone transfer, contoured heel for easier upper fret access, staggered tuners that eliminate the need for string trees, bass justified fret dots for greater visibility, and Bloodline® by John Page JP-1 single coil S-style pickups with contrarian bridge pickup slant.
