Fender Paramount PD-220E Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar (with Case)

Need a trusty acoustic-electric for gigging? The Fender PD-220E is loaded with offset X-bracing with a solid spruce top to maximize resonance.

What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
Dreadnought body shape Traditional shape and sound; familiar feel
Mahogany neck Great sustain, strength, and warm tone
Ovangkol neck Smooth feel with bright top end and rich mids
Solid mahogany back and sides Dry and airy tone; clear, present midrange

The Paramount PD-220E combines state-of-the- art craftsmanship with vintage-inspired appointments, delivering the best of both worlds. The PD-220E features an offset X-bracing pattern that has been carefully refined to optimize resonance and tone. A Fender and Fishman-designed Sonitone Plus pickup amplifies the full, balanced tone of the dreadnought 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 Black or Tiger Stripe pickguard. The PD-220E also features an ovangkol bridge and fingerboard, slim-taper mahogany neck, bone nut and saddle, and comes with a hardshell case.

I like this guitar. I have three Taylor's, a Gibson, a Martin, a Washburn and a Cole Clark. I'd never had a Fender, so I took a chance, I'm really glad I did! I'm a solid body guy and this guitar SOUNDS GREAT!!
