Overview

The Parkwood PW360M Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar has a solid spruce top, and solid back and sides. Braces are hand scalloped and cosmetic appointments are elegant. The PM360M is finished in an ultra thin "open pore" finish that lets the sound come through loud and clear.

Whether you've been playing for years, or are looking to upgrade to your first high quality guitar, Parkwood is your only choice for solid woods, expert build, exceptional playability and real tone at an extraordinary price.

Dreadnought Cutaway
Dreadnought body shape with added cutaway. You get the fullness of the dreadnought body shape with the convenience of the upper cutaway. For the player that uses the entire fret board, the upper cutaway offers access to the highest frets normally un reachable on a regular guitar.

Open Pore Finish
This finish is applied in several layers that allow the open pores of the wood to be felt and to also allow the wood to breathe and vibrate at its best. You can actually feel the wood grain, like it was a raw unfinished piece of wood. The tone of an open pore finish is loud, alive and natural.

Top - Sitka Spruce (Picea sitchensis)
Sitka Spruce comes from the Pacific northwest and today is the most commonly used wood for guitar tops. Sitka is a bit stronger and stiffer than other spruces. Its strength and toughness make it well suited for steel string guitars.

Back & Sides - Mahogany (Khaya ivorensis)
Mahogany is softer and lighter than Rosewood. Generally, Mahogany is warmer and has more low end, providing a strong, thumping bass with an emphasis on clear, bright, airy, trebles. It's also used for bracing, binding, end blocks, heel blocks and necks

Fishman Premium SOB
Fishman's latest addition to the Prefix Series includes many features from their Stereo Blender, including an onboard chromatic tuner, internal microphone, and a streamined new look. This updated preamp offers stereo or mono signal paths and a new low-noise circuit for the system's undersaddle pickup and internal microphone. The key improvement to this unit is the addition of a mono/stereo switch, which allows the player to choose between a single blended signal or splitting the onboard microphone and under-saddle signal. Shelving bass and treble, plus a semi-parametric "Contour" EQ is included to shape the guitar's tone. To complete the package, a phase switch and a redesigned notch filter (with more transparency) are included for fighting feedback.

The onboard digital chromatic tuner is highly accurate. The tuner is very reliable and easy to use. It lets the PARKWOOD player blend sounds from both the pickup and the microphone that result in a unique and personal sound that is yours alone.

Almost a great ax

By TheBear

from Mineapolis, MN

Comments about Parkwood PW360M Cutaway Acoustic Electric Guitar:

I picked up a Parkwood in 2008. It's a dream when you first get it. I played acoustic more than I had played anything else! The bummer thing was, even after keeping a cello dampit in guitar the back starts cracking. I then run a humidifier right by where I keep it - another crack... WHAT? They were small little hair lines at that point but note that you need to humidify this guitar very carefully OR buy the replacement plan. As one of the other reviewers noted buzzing developed. Well I have noticed that it seems the bridge has started making some noise when playing anything fortissimo or above (ff) in the music. I just submitted my warranty form so we'll see where this goes...

lovely guitar

By crazy diamond

from naples,fla.

Comments about Parkwood PW360M Cutaway Acoustic Electric Guitar:

I love this guitar. It is beautiful,has nice touches like the open pore finish,binding,built-in amp with tuner. The only thing I don't like is that the fretboard is a little narrower than my Taylor 314ce and my Martin Sigma. This tends to be a problem when finger picking,because you have to mentally get those fingers a little closer together. But I love the sound-a very bright top-end and enough bass. I'm ashamed to say it,but I reach for it more than the Taylor.

Not a bad guitar for the money

By Joel

from Virginia

Comments about Parkwood PW360M Cutaway Acoustic Electric Guitar:

I,ll keep it short and simple. This guitar has alot of projection and sounds pretty good. But the action on mine could be better. I may exchange it for one like it if I can find one with better action since no two guitars are alike. The fishman pickup sounds great.Hope this was helpful.I rated it a 4 because the action could be better.

Great Guitar for Price

By Colby

from Texas

Comments about Parkwood PW360M Cutaway Acoustic Electric Guitar:

I usually play a Taylor 310-CE. Recently I was looking for a backup guitar for live play. This one stole the show. It sounded almost as good as Taylor's Expression System and better than many other mid-range guitars, all for around half the price. I haven't bought one yet, but the next one I'll add to my collection is a Parkwood. Some complaints about buzzing might be attributed to the need to have the neck adjusted, which any local shop can do pretty cheap.

Prepare for dissapointment

By BlueComb'78

from Eugene, OR

Comments about Parkwood PW360M Cutaway Acoustic Electric Guitar:

When I first played this guitar, I was excited to see an all solid wood guitar under $1,000. The tone was equally as warm as its appearance, so I purchased it. Within the next couple of days, I started notice it developed a buzz. When the buzz didn't go away after restringing it with elixirs, and got worse each time I played it, I knew it had to go. I will say the Fishman Premium SOB electronics are amazing, and I'm a big fan of the internal mic as well as the pickup. I'd suggest either saving for a Martin, Taylor or Breedlove, or just buy a lower end Breedlove or Martin, because it will definetely not dissapoint. However, I will give Parkwood the benefit of the doubt and say maybe I just got a bad model, and other PW360M's really are worth it.

Parkwood Guitar - 360

By Rockstarwannabe

from Denton, TX

Comments about Parkwood PW360M Cutaway Acoustic Electric Guitar:

I just purchased this guitar after looking at several mid-range guitars. Ovations, Ephiphone, Seagull(great sound, by the way), and the low-end Martins. I wanted to spend around $500, and you can get a decent guitar for that price. My issues are simple - I am a short girl with short arms and a short body and small-ish hands. I had to find something that would let me hold it AND play it at the same time! I picked up the Parkwood on a whim; I didn't really consider it at first because I didn't know the name. After playing it a bit I knew that it was the guitar for me. I ended up spending almost $250 more than I planned to, but this had all of the brightness AND low end tonality that I was looking for. The sound was rich and vibrant, and I smile every time I pick it up to practice - the sound reminds me of the excitement I experienced when I first picked up the guitar! I also own a Gretsch Hollowbody Electromatic - another fabulous guitar that I found by accident after looking at Gibson and other fine hollowbody guitars. I changed out the strings because the 12's on it were a little too thick for my bitty fingers, and now I am jamming away. You'll enjoy this guitar AND the extra $1000.00 you'll still have in your pocket by not having to buy the more expensive Martins and Taylors.

Not Worth It

By dabillabongman

from El Paso

Comments about Parkwood PW360M Cutaway Acoustic Electric Guitar:

I used to own this guitar. The first time I played this guitar at the local guitar center I was very fascinated by the amount of quality sound I was getting for the price. Soon after I purchased the guitar I noticed it was probably too good to be true. The guitar started sounding worst every time I played it and when I exchanged it for the same model I recieved the same problems with the neck and action. So this guitar sounds great but I strongly suggest that if you plan to obtain a quality all solid wood guitar keep saving and wait to get enough for a martin or taylor.
