If it's not too expensive, it'll be a hit among beginners.

Actually that happened in 2008, with Paradise USA guitars. Anyway i'd like to try one of these new Carvins and compare both guitars.

I hope Jason gets a large percentage of the sales money, I'm sure that with his condition he needs some form of income and this would be a great way to give back.

The Paradise was even something Jason didn't like because there were some changes that Paradise made that he wasn't a fan of. Carvin got it right, Jason is REALLY happy about it.

It's not a large amount, but he does get some of it. No one will say how much though.

Carvin got it right, but it's more of a Carvin headstock and not the old 80s style headstock. Still nice though

Personally, I think the tonal variations you get from the JB200 are far better than the JB24. JB24 is much simpler and for people who don't really want all the bells and whistles like Active/Passive controls and all sorts of switches.

That is very subjective, and in my opinion the Paradise looks perfect. Even the colours look better than the Carvin. That's why i own two of them :-)
