Paradise Guitars - OFFICIAL Thread

I live on Long Island, NY, about 45 minutes from Paradise Guiitars USA. I decided to go to their factory because after seeing the guitars on their website, I wanted one. Well I have to say. I was really impressed with those guys. I mean for musicians, as we all know, most of us are hard to deal with. These guys were great. Theym took their time with me and showed me some of the most far out guitars that I have ever seen. I was surprised to see that the body-tops that they make are actually 10 times nicer looking in person than they were on their website, and thought that the pictures on the website were super. I bought a brand new style that isn't even posted on their website yet. The playabalilty of this axe is great. The neck is in between a Wizard and a Prestige. The body is alder with a yellow acrylic body top with black luctie ovals. The guitar is smokin. I am very excited, as u can probably tell. I can't believe how good this baby sounds. It has 2 DiMarzio humbuckers in it and an authentic Floyd Rose Pro bridge. I will be taking more pictures next week and posting them on this threead. They also changed the headstock to, I think it's a 3.5. I mean, if you followed the discussion on the headstock that was popsted on Jemsite and the pics that they posted, the style is between a 3 and a 4, I think. Plus on my guitar they added a special extension onto the end of the headstock in black lucite which is wild. I can't wait to show everyone what this looks like. i went to post the pictures on this thread and realized that i couldn't have any attachments unless I was a site contributor. So I am making arrangements now to send money to jemsite so I can post the pics that i took of the guitar. I know I must sound long winded, but I am really psyched about this guitar. It feels and plays out of this universe.

Re: Bought a Paradise Guitar

Not that I'd stop you from contributing to the site, but for the sake of the pics... you know you can just upload them to a host like photobucket then use image tags to put it into your post, don't you?


We need pics!!!

Re: Bought a Paradise Guitar

I think I figured out how to show everyone the pics of the Paradise guitar that I bought. I am pasting the link below, (I hope), to see the pictures at photobucket. Here it goes.

Re: Bought a Paradise Guitar

Nice stuff. Congrats!

How do you like the neck joint so far?

You know you will have to figure out how to up load clips of audio now, right?

That headstock looks much better IMHO. I still can't get used to their grip but it still looks nice. Are those around $2099 w/ a case if you don't mind me asking?

Now we just need a mod to move this thread to the "other guitars/ non-Ibanez" section

Re: Bought a Paradise Guitar

aah is this the new headstock?? i didn't notice as it's still quite bulky..
if that's the case, what was the point of asking for votes if you ignore the one with far and away the most anyway?

Because he didn't want to have to re-name his business "Ibadice Guitars"

I like this headstock. Seeing it in the pics, I think it looks really good.

Conrgats on your new baby G1000

It looks so much better than the pics on the site. The new headstock looks great, too.
