Fender Paramount PM3 Adirondack Triple-0

An expansion of the Paramount Series acoustic guitars, the Fender PM-3 Limited Adirondack Triple-0, Mahogany combines upgraded features and refined style to create a responsive and inspiring instrument. Carefully crafted for superior tone, high performance and refined visual appeal, this premium instrument will satisfy all players searching for their next guitar.

The solid AA Adirondack Spruce top is extremely lively, with an extended frequency range and enhanced dynamic response that responds to every nuance of your playing, no matter how hard or fast you strum or pick. The scalloped X-braces are also crafted from Adirondack Spruce and carefully placed for detailed note definition, working in harmony with the top for the perfect amount of strength and ringing sustain.

The rich, all-solid African Mahogany back and sides work with the AA Adirondack Spruce top for well-balanced, highly articulate and responsive tone. A Fishman- and Fender-designed PM preamp is specifically voiced for the Triple-0 shape, instantly responding to playing dynamics while bringing out the guitar's most subtle tonal nuances. Complete with tuner, tone (bass and treble), phase and master volume controls, this collaboration in preamp design faithfully reproduces the guitar's voice when amplified. The fast-playing "C"-shaped mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard are carefully crafted to accommodate any playing style while offering comfortable performance anywhere on the neck. The durable bone nut and bridge pins create balanced tone while increasing the guitar's tuning stability by allowing the strings to glide slightly while bending, instead of binding at the nut.

Inspired by Fender's '60s acoustic instrument designs and early 20th-century motifs, while maintaining their footing in modern design, this guitar was made for the spotlight. The thin lacquer finish allows the body to resonate freely, making the instrument breathe with lively tone. Thinner body binding along with new inlays add a refined touch to the appointments, evoking a retro vibe. Includes deluxe hardshell case and humidifier.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Initial first day review"
Overall: I bought this guitar because both Fender and zZounds seemed very confident it is an excellent instrument. My first impression is that it is made from fairly good woods. The finish is a nitrocelleouse lacquer and is fairly thin. The neck is more of a slender "D" shape than a C shape being it is somewhat flat at the very back of the neck carve. The rosewood fretboard is very nice, smooth and even in color. The fret work is decent for an import guitar. No real sharp fret ends. The action was also pretty good on the one I received. I did have to adjust the neck relief just a bit but that was easily done. Now to the tone. It is a little "boxy" sounding but I believe that is due to the Adirondak spruce top. After some playing time my experience tells me it will "loosen up" some. The African Mahogany is beautiful on the one I got. The top is bookmatched very nicely on mine.The binding is perfect and of an aged white color which is nice. The tuning gears have a tiny bit of backlash in them but maybe a bit of tightening the drive gears will fix that. The string nut's G string slot is cut too low so the G string rattles on the second fret and the slot is too tight so the G string binds and creaks when tuning up or down. This can also be fixed rather easily. Although for a guitar that costs 1199.00 these details should not have gotten past Fender's quality control. The bone saddle has plenty of height for string break and the bone string pins are nice. The inside of the sound box is very cleanly done with no apparent glue showing, no sand marks on the braces and the purfling looks very well done. The tone is a tiny bit dry and the sustain and resonance is fair to good but not excellent but that may change some after the top opens up a little. The case is very nice. Overall it is a nice instrument, maybe not as Premium and Paramount as the name and description implies but a worthy step up from a lower level guitar. Is it on a level with my Martins and Gibson acoustics, no but they did cost a lot more and were made by hand here in the USA. Now remember I am reviewing the one I received and if you buy one it may be better than mine. I am keeping it and with some detail adjustment it may make a good every day player. Keep in mind this is just a day one review and in a little time I may have a more glowing review after some time with it and some extended playing time and finding the best strings for it.
