Paragon Jr. and Special




Fine Handcrafted Electric Guitars - Music Instrument Repair and Restoration



The Paragon Jr and the Paragon Special are the workhorses of the DGN Line.  Desgined with the working, gigging musician in mind, these guitars are stripped down, bare bones, tone monsters.  

With its all Spanish Cedar construction this solid body guitar tips the scales at aproximately 6 pounds.  Its light and resonant and just a blast to play.  

The Paragon Jr is the classic single pickup bare bones rock and blues machine.

The Paragon Special adds the verstility of a neck pickup for even more tonal options.

The pickups are just as unique as the rest of the guitar.  The Hand Wound DGN P-90 features a Center tap.  When the pickup is wound, a certain number of turns are put onto the bobbin.  Then a center tap is inserted.  After that, the rest of the coil is wound onto the bobbin.  My method keeps this P-90 a "True" single coil pickup but makes it more versatile by giving you 2 pickup tones in one.  First you get a full sounding, high output modern P-90 (thick mids pushes a tube amp very well), and then when the coil is tapped, you get a low output vintage style P-90 with almost T-Style bridge pickup vibes.
