Paradise Guitars "Jem"

Hey guys...

Just checked out http://www.paradiseguitarsusa.com/guitars.html to see the Jason Becker signature and I couldn't help but laugh when I saw the The Rose and Rainbow model.

Monkey Grip anyone ?

I know it's not exactly like it but I thought it's funny

Yeah I agree, sadly that's the part Jason Becker is most proud about his signature guitar.

I came close to ordering one of the Rainbow models last year. As the Grip is actually an optional extra I would have had mine made without it.

Looks like they also copied the RBM.

Paradise Guitars was a long time sponsor here at Jemsite, and the headstock shape for their guitars was picked after a poll/vote here on Jemsite as well.

I wouldn't mind a Becker if I could afford it. I like odd stuff like that.

Re: Paradise Guitars "Jem"

I would just love to get a neck with the numbered fret markers like a the Jason Becker guitars...sadly that headstock is terrible like you guys were saying.

This one is pretty awesome:

The natural finish + color pickups + color numbered fret inlays reminds me of kindergarten. Wooden blocks with colorful shapes and numbers!
