GOTHENBURG, Sweden. (Feb. 25, 2016) – Fender, the iconic guitar, amplifier, audio and accessories brand reaffirms its commitment to acoustic guitars with the new Paramount acoustic guitar series.
The U.S.-designed Paramount Series acoustic instruments are finely crafted and specially voiced to bring a player’s personal artistic vision to life.
Each all-solid guitar offers many legacy design elements of classic ‘60s models, including checkerboard purfling and rosette, pickguard shape and abalone and mother-of-pearl “Concert Tone” fingerboard inlays. All-new Fender- and Fishman®-designed PM preamp systems are specifically voiced for each body shape in the series, ensuring complete tonal control and variation. The series includes Dreadnought, Parlor and Triple-0 body shapes in both Standard and Deluxe versions and will be available to consumers in February 2016.
Paramount Deluxe Dreadnought, Parlor and Triple-0
The Paramount Deluxe instruments feature thoughtful vintage appointments with craftsmanship of truly high-performing acoustic guitars. Crafted from premium all-solid tone woods such as East Indian rosewood back and sides and Sitka spruce top and equipped with quartersawn scalloped “X” bracing, the Deluxe models are designed with freely vibrating, resonant tone in mind. The models also feature a fast-playing “C”-shaped mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard, both designed to accommodate the most demanding playing styles. The Deluxe Dreadnought, Parlor and Triple-0 models are available in Natural and Vintage Sunburst and each include a humidifier and hardshell case.
Paramount Standard Dreadnought, Parlor and Triple-0
The Paramount Standard models are crafted from premium all-solid tone woods such as mahogany back and sides and Sitka spruce top and equipped with quartersawn scalloped “X”-bracing, and are also designed with freely vibrating, resonant tone in mind. The models also feature a fast playing “C”-shaped mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard.
