Why Polyphonic Guitars?
For many years, this page contained the first chapter of the PARADIS Story, starting in 1983.
The primary idea of PARADIS
Colaboration of lutiers and engineer lead to new concepts and instruments!
The primary result was a revolutionary set of products for a complete polyphonic instrument:
Paradis Polyphonic Piezo Pickup, the Avalon guitar and Polysubbass.
Manufacturing was hard. Although parts of the process were automized, and Jon Piguet and others helped, it went to sleep after about 300 guitars... but minds, technology and experience kept growing!
In 2005 the creator came back to guitarmaking: Rolf Spuler guitars-design-engineering.
The first product is the improved Avalon, now called Paradis. New features:
Headstock, built-in PolyBass, Controls...
A bass and a jazzguitar will follow.
