Description

Fender's U.S.-designed Paramount series acoustic instruments, like this affordable PM-2 Parlor acoustic-electric with ovangkol fingerboard, are finely crafted and specially voiced to bring your artistic vision to life. Each of these all-solid guitar offers many legacy design elements of classic '60s models, including checkerboard purfling and rosette, pickguard shape, and abalone and mother-of-pearl "Concert Tone" fingerboard inlays. Even with their Art Deco look, Paramount instruments still retain their footing in modern design. 

Comes with a molded hardshell case.

Tonewoods
With all-solid back, sides and top, the PM-1 Parlor is built to project with the player's personality in mind. Rosewood back and sides coalesce with a grade-A Sitka spruce top for tone that's lifelike, powerful and balanced.

Electronics
The PM-2 has a modern Fender- and Fishman-designed PM preamp system specifically voiced for its body shape, ensuring complete tonal control and variation. Complete with tuner, frequency (bass, middle and treble) and phase controls, this collaboration in preamp design is specially voiced for the parlor shape. Not only does this special engineering offer versatile ways to fine-tune your tone, but also imparts an elegant retro look reminiscent of old-school radio knobs.

Appointments
Inspired by Art Deco design and inlaid around the body and down the back, the black-and-white checkers offset the natural beauty of the PM-2's tonewoods. Most importantly, they evoke a true old-school acoustic vibe, matched with playability for any occasion. Adding to the "art nouveau" vibe of the PM-2 are elegant inlays, constructed from a fine combination of mother-of-pearl and abalone for a truly awe-inspiring look. Designed to the tune of an early 20th-century masterpiece, it's a vintage touch made accessible to the player of today.
