The pick is crafted to John’s exact specifications.

Benicia, CA (November 1, 2012) -- Dunlop has added a new signature Jazz III pick for Dream Theater guitarist John Petrucci. Here are the details from their press release:

Dunlop worked closely with prog rock legend John Petrucci to design the John Petrucci Signature Jazz III pick. Crafted to John’s exact specifications, this 1.5mm Jazz III pick is made from Ultex and features a raised JP logo grip and slick polished tip for ultimate control and articulation.

“This pick is an essential tool for achieving the ultimate tone and greater levels of speed and accuracy in my playing,” John said. “Everything from the material, shape, contours and bevels to the thickness and grip were taken into consideration, and several prototypes were made along the way. I’m psyched that my dream for the ultimate pick has been realized—I hope other players try it and enjoy it as much as I do.”
