About This Listing

2017 Jason Pickard Electric Guitar

Proudly constructed in the USA, "in house" at Music49, this is one of those guitars that is just plain outside the box!  Designed in collaboration with Conor Callahan, this guitar was constructed with the idea of a "mini-guitar" with full sized sound......and by using a custom Seymour Duncan Antiquity Jazzmaster pickup matched to a custom shop Duncan Vintage single coil, MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!  

This guitar has got a vintage feel, with a smaller, more comfortable body size (made from Pine) and a 24" scale length.  The neck is a full "C", almost chunky when you consider the shorter scale length, it measures at approximately .890" in depth at the first fret.  The Neck is a 3 piece laminate Quartersawn Spanish Cedar with Bubinga laminate, and has no truss rod.....so the neck is quite vibrant, light, and super stiff!!  
Aesthetically, the combination of a "snakehead" throwback headstock, and a Mustang style bridge, we wanted to create a guitar that looks like something that would have been built in the 1960's......except less plastic!  So we added solid would back plates for the electronics, and stained to match.

The Color is what we like to call "Killer Radish", it's a custom stained satin finish that highlights the beautiful natural figure in the Pine body, and really adds to the overall Vintage character of the guitar.

Mr. Pickard describes the guitar as such:
"At first, I admit that I was skeptical about building a smaller guitar, for various reasons......intonation, string tension and such.  But now that we have built a couple of them, it's undeniable how alluring some elements of this guitar can be.  It's hard not to enjoy playing it!!  Sometimes bending a string seems like it takes less effort, and the chords really blend nicely.  I'd say that for most guitarists, this is a guitar that would find it's place in the rotation....it plays and sounds different enough that it's got such a wonderful personality!  I love the fact that it's not a "copy" of anything, but it still feels like one of those guitars of the classic 1960's era."

*This guitar includes a wonderful solid wood hardshell case, custom-built in house by Austin Albers for this particular project.  The case is very sturdy, and although it may look heavy, it's really quite manageable.


*Note, this guitar is solid pine with an oil finish....while Mr.Pickard believes that this is the best finish for sound, it will scratch easily.
