Re: Bought a Paradise Guitar

After playing it for a little while now, is there any additional info you can add about that nice axe?

How do you like the FR Pro trem? Is it as good as the original?

Re: Bought a Paradise Guitar

Congratulations on your purchase, I really like it.
As someone else suggested, it would be very nice to hear a few sound clips of this in action, if you've got the equipment to do so
Have fun with it dude!
peace

Re: New Paradise Signature Series ZEBRA

Hi, You can see the headstock is much slimmer in the Zebra pics. I know its hard to tell from pics, but they are actually pretty slim. There seems to be alot of interest so far in these guitars. and we have done very little promo on them. I will say this in all honesty , that they play great, and the neck is very comfortable. I love the tone of the alder with these Duncan" s The pro bridge vs the original, feels more comfortable for me, its a lower profile, so your palm doesnt hit the little fine tuners when your playing, and knock the guitar out of tune...lol mainly the low E tuner , but as far as quality, they are both the same. The body tops look incredible in person. These guitars would be double in price with this inlay work anyplace else, so i know they will sell big. I would just sum it up by saying its a beautiful work horse !

Paradise Zebra guitar amazes Sam Ash

The Randy Jackson signature series "Zebra" electric guitar made nothing less than a spectacular hit at Sam Ash music stores. The first 3 prototypes of this guitar were taken to the main store in New York City, NY and the entire sales staff were in utter AWE!!. They claimed that they had never seen such a beautiful and well made guitar as this. Aside from it's unique and patent pending body-top, the playability and sound were phenominal. But wait, it doesn't end there, it just begins. Then the guitars were taken to another floor for the engineers and technicians to inspect and evaluate. Talk about flying colors. They were just as impresses as the sales staff and called this workhorse a thing of beauty and art. Within 2 days, Sammy from Sam Ash was calling on a Sunday, Randy Jackson at his house wanting an immediate meeting with him to decide the best way to promote such a winner. We will leave you hanging at that for now, but look for more information in the days to come. Below is some additional pictures and also our website.

Re: New Paradise Signature Series ZEBRA

I just had a look through the site again - that Randy Jackson is lovely, either the black and white or the brown would go with a lot of my decor at home (African, not zebra stripes, before anyone says 'ew'). Love the neck joint.

Shipping costs would make it impractical though, dammit. One more reason we don't see boutique guitars over here.

Nice stuff Tommy.

Re: Bought a Paradise Guitar

Beautiful guitar. I've seriously considered buying a guitar from them.
What's the scale length? It looks a bit shorter than 25.5. And how does the neck thickness compare to an RG?

Re: New Paradise Signature Series ZEBRA

Thanks for the pictures.

I am from South Louisiana, and the first concert I ever attended was ZEBRA.
Randy Jackson is a great singer and a very underrated guitar player.

I remember my ears ringing for 3 days after seeing Zebra play.

Re: Bought a Paradise Guitar

The neck is 25.5 scale and the thickness falls between a wizard and a prestige .
