All Solid Wood

The Deluxe models in the Paramount Series have rich solid East Indian rosewood back and sides, while the Standard models have superior solid mahogany back and sides.

The Deluxe models’ fast-playing ‘C’-shaped mahogany necks and ebony fingerboards, while the Standard versions’ fingerboards are rosewood, are designed to accommodate any playing style.

Signature Styling

The Paramount Series acoustic guitars include checkerboard purfling and rosette, pickguard form, and abalone and mother-of-pearl ‘Concert Tone’ fingerboard inlays on the Deluxe versions, all of which are inspired by legendary 1960s Fender models. Despite its art-deco appearance, the Paramount Series acoustic guitars maintain a contemporary design.

Fender- And Fishman-Designed PM Preamp With Tuner

The Fishman and Fender-designed PM preamp on the Paramount Series acoustic guitars is uniquely tailored to the form of each acoustic guitar, responding to playing dynamics and bringing out the most delicate tone subtleties. Its reduced footprint, which sits flush with the side of the guitar, provides full control in a subtle design.

This cooperation in preamp design, which includes a tuner, frequency (bass, master volume, and treble) controls, and phase controls, not only gives various methods to fine-tune your tone but also has an exquisite retro aesthetic evocative of antique radio knobs.

The PM-3 has a wonderful tone to it: well-balanced, with a mellow warmth that makes you smile. It’s a little softer acoustically than a standard dreadnought due to its smaller size, making it excellent for singers. On the other hand, it produces greater loudness than a parlor guitar. It’s a win-win situation! The PM-3, on the other hand, impresses through the preamp, and you can tell it’s not a stock preamp by the realistic tone reproduction.

  1. Nola

    Everything about this instrument is shockingly great (considering my previous impressions of Chinese guitars). The quiet, non-buzzing motion is the most wonderful feature. SOLID would be everywhere, including the back and sides. While playing in my easy chair, the parlor size is ideal. It comes highly recommended.

    I honestly can’t believe I got this guitar at such a low price. It’s possible that it’ll be the finest deal I’ll ever get. I’m not a very skilled player, so I’ve been using an old fender with a solid sitka spruce top and laminated back and sides. The change in sound is amazing.

    Setting the neck relief correctly is crucial to getting this instrument to play smoothly. According to the information I discovered on the internet, 0.010″ of relief at the 6th fret is a decent setting for most playing styles. This was the polar opposite of what my naive self believed, but after adjusting the strut rod using a framing square and a feeler gauge, WOW, what a change. There was less fret buzz with less neck relief, and you can hear everything with this guitar since it is clean, balanced, and detailed.

    I looked at all of the top brands and this guitar should be around $800 for what you receive. Anything less is a good deal.

    I’m a novice with no prior guitar knowledge, so take my words with a grain of salt, but I think this instrument is pretty appealing, tunes quickly, and stays in tune from day to day, and I’m learning, so I have no complaints.
