DGN Custom Guitars / Paragon '59 Redwood / 2012 / Nitrocellulose Lacquer / Tobacco Burst / Guitar For Sale
The Paragon '59 is the newest model to come out of the DGN Shop. This guitar is inspired by the 59 Burst and has all of the details that make that guitar unique.
This particular version of the Paragon '59 was an experiment with tone woods. I had some killer pieces of wood kicking around the shop and decided to put them into this build.
First off, the Top Carve, internal routings, Neck Joint, neck profile and scale are all exact to a Burst. That is where the similarities end. The Top on this guitar is Highly figured Old Growth Redwood. The Body is made from a Single Piece of Spanish Cedar that has a bit of figuring to it. The neck is also made from Spanish Cedar and is one piece with the standard glued on ears at the headstock. The truss rod is a standard vintage style single action rod. The fingerboard on this guitar is Honduran Rosewood and features Celluloid Trap inlays. Tonally Honduran Rosewood is similar to Brazilian. This guitar also features High End PEC pots and Luxe Bumble Bee caps.
The sound of this guitar is nothing short of amazing. Besides the high end electronics, it also features a set of DGN True PAF pickups, modeled after a 1959 ES 355 that came through my shop last year. These pickups are matched to some of the best PAF I have ever heard. The Redwood top gives the high end on this guitar a different character. It has a fuller, Sweeter High End and the overall tone of the guitar is fatter than the average burst replica. The tone is in Les Paul Custom territory, just a huge fat Tone.
This guitar is ready to ship NOW!!! Please send an email or message to inquire about the special reduced pricing!!!

DGN Custom Guitars started with a passion to build something different, something better. I build high quality custom guitars for both professional musicians and guitar enthusiasts.
Each guitar is made by hand one at a time in my Southern CT shop. I use many old school methods combined with new ideas in guitar construction resulting in an incredibly lively and comfortable instrument to play on. It’s like having the best of both worlds wrapped up into one guitar. Amazing playability and versatility with tons of vintage vibe. I think of my guitars as, "The Modern Vintage".
