      The Eric Johnson pick.

      The Dunlop Jazz III Guitar Pick has been an important element to create Eric Johnson's fluid and seamless style. To create the Eric Johnson Jazz III pick, Dunlop laser scanned a vintage Jazz III from Eric's collection and recreated it with the most advanced molding techniques available. The result? A Jazz III pick with an even more refined and smooth tip, more flexibility, and a matte finish with raised logos offering you an incredible gripping surface.

            Comments about Dunlop Eric Johnson Classic Jazz III Guitar Pick 6-Pack:

            Got these along with the carbon fiber max-grip Jazz III. Size and shape appear to be an exact match. The EJ is a bit more flexible due to being different material. Raised lettering on both sides is nicely grippy. Price per pick is higher than the max-grip, but I hope some of that gets into Eric's pocket.

              The type of pick, pick attack and pick tension all are key ingredients to producing overall tone. There is a noticeable difference in my tone since changing to the EJ custom pick from Dunlop - warmer, crisper and more articulate especially on lead lines. Thank you EJ and Dunlop!

                      I love these pick! I'm not a huge fan of Eric Johnson, but I'm a huge fan of these picks. The name etching on the pick acts as a grip, which i really like. They are smaller than the average pick, but they are not to small either. What more can I say? These get the job done.

                          The Eric Johnson signature picks are MUCH better than the normal Jazz III picks (which I find too small and hard to retain in my hand).

                          The EJ pick seems to help achieve a very solid connection between pick and string, and there is not a lot of pick noise (which explains why EJ loves them so much, I guess).

                          They are smaller than a standard pick, but a little bigger than the regular Jazz III. It might take a bit of practice to get used to them, but I find that I like them very much, and I've tried many, many, many picks. These EJ picks are great for playing electric guitar!

                              I have tried numerous varieties of picks, including the red and carbon fiber Max Grips, Ultex Jazz IIIs, Primetones, Dava picks, and V-Picks, and these are the ones that I keep coming back to.

                              They have just the right amount of flexibility for use on both rhythm and lead lines, while having the size, stiffness, and grip to ensure precision.

                              Before these were released, I used the red Jazz IIIs but kept having problems holding onto it. These picks have just the right amount of grip because of the matte finish while maintaining the characteristics of the red Jazz III that I love. They are the perfect pick for me, and I have not yet found any picks that work as good or better.

                                  This pick is just perfect. I've used all of the Jazz styles that Dunlop has to offer and I keep going back to these! I hope they never get discontinued... This is the most comfortable, accurate pick I've ever used! I play varied styles of electric guitar and this is great for a lot of them. It's definitely not a rhythm pick, but for someone experienced with it, it can be used for such. I just cannot get over this pick! I'm so glad EJ found one of the old Jazz III picks and now has his signature model! Seriously, check this one out if you like the Jazz III style! This one is the best! Hands Down! I tried the Ultex, but they're a little to stiff and brittle for me. This has the perfect amount of stiffness and can be easily controlled. I love them!

                                  Just got the EJ picks the other day. Love them! I love the Jazz III picks and still kinda do but there was something that was a little bit better about the EJ picks. They seem to have a better "feel" than the Jazz III. It's close, but the EJ's seem to have a quicker and smoother release of the string than the Jazz III. The response and the "feel" is much better. I am a HUGE fan of Eric Johnson and can play some of his songs as well. I noticed that some the more difficult runs in the solos are a little easier now because of the quicker and smoother release of the pick against the strings. It's not improvements with just his songs though, I've noticed improvements with other things that I play too. All in all I would defiantly recommend these.

                                  More Flex & Sharper Grip

                                  I was given one of these picks when I met Eric at an artist signing at NAMM. They are a copy of an older Jazz III pick that Eric Johnson liked better than the updated version. They have a little more flex & the surfaces are a little different only because of the thinner text. I find them a little nicer to grip than the standard red Jazz III, but not like the grip as the black Jazz IIIs or the Max Grips. Like any artist signature gear, you've hit the jackpot if you happen to have the same tastes & touch as the artist, yet it's really nothing special if you don't. I'm excited that they've come out with an expanded line of Jazz IIIs now with all different grips as well as brighter materials, as nylon jazz threes tend to give of the bassiest, softest attack of any pick. Jazz IIIs in general are something all advancing players should try at least once. The shape & the thickness offer a kind of contol you just can't get with standard picks.

                                  Great Pick!

                                  Comments about Dunlop Eric Johnson Classic Jazz III Guitar Pick 6-Pack:

                                  Overall, this is a great pick in my opinion. Tone is the most important thing for me followed by feel. Because if you have great tones, the feel would automatically be inspired and when they are in harmony, you hear magic. Classic tones of nylon picks and yet still versatile for all styles. It just depends on your technique. I'm a big Eric Johnson fan and I bought this pick out of curiousity to see what the hype and difference over the standard Jazz III is all about. Well, I'm very satisfied with what I've discovered and no, I don't play like Eric nor sound like Eric but this pick has the tones and feel that I desire and I can't stop playing it! My new favorite! I still love the Jazz III XL series and between these picks, because of the difference in size, for some reason they almost feel the same to me. I know, it's a placebo effect! Give it a try and see how you like it. You might pass on the pick that you've been searching for all these years!
                                  This is essentially a red Jazz III but slightly different. It is slightly larger than the standard Jazz III and a bit thinner with a slightly rounded tip. I measured the thickness with my digital caliper and it measured 1.34mm while the standard Jazz III and XL Series both measured at 1.36mm. The nylon material which is what this is made of just like the red standard and XL Series Jazz III's are made from, is slightly lighter in color and has more transparency when looked up against a light source. The standard Jazz III and XL Series Jazz III have a more solid and darker material and is less transparent than the Eric Johnson Jazz III. The surface of the pick is similar to the XL Series Jazz III which Dunlop describes as matte finish. However, it does not have the same exact finish as the XL Series Jazz III's. The Eric Johnson Jazz III's surface tends to smooth out after a few playing sessions. Also, flexibility is about the same as the standard Jazz III and XL Series inspite of Dunlop's claim of having more flexibility. It has a slightly different feel than the standard Jazz III. In my opinion, it is a happy medium between the Standard Jazz III and the XL Series Jazz III. Tone wise, it's about the same as the standard and the XL series. However, as with all the Jazz III picks, there is a break-in period of the pick as the way these picks are manufactured with the beveled edges, there is a thin material that remains around the the whole pick which tends to make the tone a tad brighter and raspy when you first take a pick fresh out of the pack. But with a few hours of playing, the thin material comes off eventually from hitting the strings constantly and you get the true tone of the sharp, beveled edge. The big difference between the Eric Johnson Jazz III and the standard Jazz III is FEEL. They are not exact same picks. Dimensions, thickness and finish are a bit different that an experienced player will notice.
                                  Superb quality! Typical of Dunlop products with attention to detail. Made in USA!
                                  These are more expensive than the standard Jazz III's including the XL Series. But, then again it is not the same pick as the standard Jazz III just stamped with Eric Johnson's name on it. As I've learned, these are re-issues of the vintage Jazz III picks that Eric had been using almost all through out his career. So, this is not just a marketing thing for Dunlop, it is a different pick than the standard Jazz III. It is understandable that it would be more expensive. Hey, it is an artist signature model after all and his name is on it which I know fans would love to use and collect. With Eric Johnson famous for being very picky when it comes to his equipment and of course his legendary tones, I think allowing his name to be on a product and endorsing it says a lot.
