Fender's U.S.-designed Paramount series acoustic instruments are finely crafted and specially voiced to bring your artistic vision to life. Each all-solid guitar offers many legacy design elements of classic '60s models, including special checkerboard binding and rosettes, unique pickguard shape, and abalone and mother-of-pearl "Concert Tone" fretboard inlays. And even with this art deco look, Paramount instruments still retain their footing in modern design. The Fender- and Fishman-designed PM preamp systems are equipped with specially voiced for each body shape in the series, ensuring complete tonal control and variation.

Available in an elegant natural finish, the Paramount Standard Triple 0 features not only thoughtful vintage appointments, but also the craftsmanship of a truly high-performing instrument. Crafted from premium all-solid tone woods such as mahogany back and sides and Sitka spruce top and equipped with quartersawn scalloped "X" bracing, the Standard triple 0 cutaway model is designed with freely vibrating, resonant tone in mind. It also features a fast playing "C"-shaped mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard, both of which are designed to accommodate the most demanding playing styles.

All Solid Woods

Using East Indian rosewood back and sides and a Sitka spruce top, Fender envisioned Paramount Deluxe instruments as perfect platforms of self-expression accentuated by only the finest materials. This all-solid construction contributes to that unique voice, read more with a body that vibrates freely and resonates more naturally.

Fender- and Fishman-Designed Preamp

Complete with tuner, frequency (bass, master volume and treble) and phase controls, this collaboration in preamp design is specially voiced for each Paramount body shape. Not only does this special engineering offer versatile ways to fine-tune your tone, but also imparts an elegant retro look reminiscent of vintage radio knobs.

Checkerboard Purfling and Rosette

Inspired by classic '60s Fender acoustic guitar designs, the black-and-white checkerboard purfling offsets the natural beauty of the Paramount Series tone woods. Most importantly, they evoke a true old-school acoustic vibe, matched with playability for any occasion.

Unique Vintage-Style Fretboard Inlays

Adding to the "art nouveau" vibe of the Paramount series are its elegant inlays, constructed from a fine combination of mother of pearl and abalone for a truly awe-inspiring look. Based on an early 20th-century design, it's a vintage touch made accessible to the player of today.

Distinctive Fender Headstock Shape

With natural, resonant acoustic tone, the Paramount Series captures the essence of traditional Fender acoustic guitars. The '60s-inspired headstock design serves as a fitting salute to Fender's classic acoustic legacy.

Well after playing her all day I'm really amazed at the quality. Better sustain than my Gibson and Martin OM. Action was a tad high for my liking but easily corrected. Apparently it was NOS having a build date of Jan 2016. Purchased as a blemish model ($600.00) but I've yet to find any blemish. All plastic covering was still intact in fact. Fender not producing sunburst any longer so hopefully will be collectible over time but this one would be difficult to part with mind you. Color me QUITE IMPRESSED!!!
