Description

The Paramount PS-220E combines state-of-the-art craftsmanship with vintage-inspired appointments, delivering the best of both worlds. Built with the choice of a solid spruce or solid mahogany top paired with solid mahogany back and sides, the PS-220E features an offset X-bracing pattern that has been carefully refined to optimise resonance and tone. Sadly Fender didn't finish the guitar 100% and left some glue residue around the scratplate. We have cleaned the glue but this has left a slightly shiny finish on the Satin wood around the edge as per the picture. For this reason the guitar is sold as B stock but is still supplied with a full two year Fender warranty

A Fender and FishmanŽ-designed pickup amplifies the tight, articulate tone of the PS-220Es newly designed parlour body shape, while the soundhole-mounted controls preserve the vintage aesthetics. Under the top, a body-sensing pickup enhances the soundboard's vibrations which can then be blended with the undersaddle Sonicore pickup.

Updated cosmetics include snowflake-shaped pearloid fingerboard inlays, feathered purfling, rosette, and backstrip, and a Black or Tiger Stripe pickguard. The PS-220E also features an ovangkol bridge and 14-fret fingerboard, slim-taper mahogany neck, bone nut and saddle, and comes with a hardshell case.

FEATURES

  • New Parlour shape
  • Solid spruce or mahogany top; solid mahogany back and sides
  • New Fender/FishmanŽ Sonitone Plus pickup with piezo and transducer
  • Snowflake inlays
  • Black or Tiger Stripe pickguard
  • Includes hardshell case

ALL-SOLID DESIGN

Paramount acoustics feature all-solid construction to deliver outstanding tone. Solid mahogany top, back and sides achieve a tone that's warm and balanced, while solid spruce tops are generally categorised as brighter, with a broad dynamic range. Solid spruce tops are known for opening up and sounding better over time.

FENDER-AND FISHMAN-DESIGNED SONITONE PLUS PREAMP

Specially voiced for the Paramount series, this preamp features a volume and a blend knob, allowing you to easily add in the body-sensing transducer to the undersaddle pickup. The soundhole-mounted controls preserve the vintage aesthetics.

FEATHER-STYLE ROSETTE & PURFLING

Inspired by early vintage guitars, this rosette and purfling pay homage to the classic acoustic designs of the 1930s and 40s.

SATIN NECK FINISH

The PS-220E features a smooth, satin neck finish for comfort and playability.

FENDER-DESIGNED BODY

Designed in house, this parlour shape gives all the articulate sound of a small body guitar but with a unique design for tone and projection.

THE PERFECT PREMIUM CASE

Diligently designed to accommodate each Paramount acoustic to perfection, each moulded hardshell case features a useful storage compartment and plush interior lining making gig-to-gig transport a cinch.
