The Paramount PS-220E combines state-of-the- art craftsmanship with vintage-inspired appointments, delivering the best of both worlds. Built with a solid spruce top paired with solid mahogany back and sides, the PS-220E yields a clear and articulate tone with great projection. An offset X-bracing pattern has been carefully refined to optimize resonance and tone. A Fender- and Fishman-designed pickup amplifies the articulate tone of the newly designed parlor 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 pickup.
Updated cosmetics include snowflake-shaped pearloid fingerboard inlays, feathered purfling, rosette, and backstrip, and a 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.
