Mr. Blues Power Jared James Nichols and John Bohlinger take the stage at the Gibson Garage in downtown Nashville to go over JJN's latest Epiphone Les Paul Custom that features a brand-new Seymour Duncan JJN P90 Silencer pickup. The duo talk shop, cover Nichols' other signature Epiphones and trade a few riffs.
The Jared James Nichols “Blues Power” Les Paul Custom is the third signature model from the blues-rock powerhouse and Gibson Brand Ambassador who hails from Les Paul’s hometown of Waukesha, Wisconsin. The Jared James Nichols “Blues Power” Les Paul Custom pairs with the brushed nickel hardware, including Grover Locking Rotomatic tuners and a wraparound Lightning Bar bridge for rock-solid tuning stability. A single Seymour Duncan Jared James Nichols Signature JJN P90 Silencer in the bridge position ensures righteous tone and hum-free performance, and the included EpiLite soft guitar case helps keep this standout guitar safe and secure.

Jared James Nichols burst onto the scene as a throwback to the P90 playing power trio titans of the 70s. To deliver his signature sound, he needed a P90 that was voiced with limitless range that could cover everything from sparkling cleans to barking dirty tones. In his own words, he needed something “delicate and strong, like a grizzly bear and a paper airplane landing.”
After years on the road playing different venues coast to coast and abroad, he’s encountered a variety of unique hum inducing sources. Having a pickup that could retain the quintessential tone and appearance of the classic P90 pickup without hum was a must. The JJN P90 Silencer was custom voiced specifically to Jared’s unique tone without the hum. The pickups are drop-in replacements for any standard P90 route.
“Simply put, the Seymour Duncan Jared James Nichols P90 Silencer is my dream pickup.”

Each model features FideliSonic 90 pickups and optional Bigsby trem.
Gretsch today expands the Streamliner Collection with the all-new G2622T-P90 Streamliner Center Block Double-Cut P90 with Bigsby, G2622-P90 Streamliner Center Block Double-Cut P90 with V-Stoptail, G2655T-P90 Streamliner Center Block Jr. Double-Cut P90 with Bigsby and G2655-P90 Streamliner Center Block Jr. Double-Cut P90 with V-Stoptail.
These models are designed for three simple things — high gain-friendly performance, slick, easy playability and spectacular style.
The Streamliner Center Block and Center Block Jr.'s sound is the perfect blend of brash and brawn with a chambered spruce center block driven to the limit by all-new FideliSonic 90 pickups. These single-coil pickups retain the full warm tone of a traditional P90 with a distinct top-end that is articulate and well-defined. The lightweight spruce center block runs the length of the mahogany body (16" for Center Block and 14" for Center Block Jr.), reinforcing the arched top while eliminating undesired feedback for volume-friendly performance on modern stages.
Sonic power is harnessed and shaped by the traditional control layout—neck and bridge pickup volume controls, a master tone control, master volume control and three-way pickup toggle switching. A fast-playing 12"-radius laurel fingerboard with unique oval inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets sits atop the white-bound nato neck with a thin "U"-shaped profile—ideal for chord work or fiery riffing, while the anchored Adjusto-Matic bridge and synthetic bone nut grants astounding tuning stability and accurate, slip-free intonation.
