The Paragon '59 is my tribute to those iconic guitars built in 1959. Being a "Burst" inspired guitar, the Paragon '59 has all of the features and details that make those guitars great.
Only the highest quality hand selected Honduran Mahogany is used for the Body and Neck. The wood must meet certain weight and visual criteria for it to be selected for a Paragon '59. The Necks are all one piece and Quarter sawn. The top wood is Maple from Eastern Pennsylvania, is intensly Figured, and will meet or excede the grading of the tops seen on this page.
The Paragon '59 oozes vintage vibe. From the slighly aged/distressed hardware, to the heavily rolled binding edge of the fingerboard, this guitar will feel like an old friend right from the start. Don't forget the nibs!
If you have always dreamed of a "Burst" inspired guitar of exceptional quality and the original vintage instruments are simply out of reach, then the Paragon '59 is where its at.
