The Paramount PO-220E mixes cutting-edge craftsmanship with vintage-inspired accents to provide the best of both worlds. The PO-220E boasts an offset X-bracing pattern that has been thoroughly developed to enhance resonance and tone. It is constructed with a solid spruce or solid mahogany top matched with solid mahogany back and sides. A pickup built by Fender and Fishman® amplifies the warm, mid-focused tone of the PO-220E's newly designed orchestra body form, while soundhole-mounted controls maintain the classic look. A body-sensing pickup beneath the top amplifies the vibrations of the soundboard, which may then be combined with the undersaddle Sonicore pickup.
Snowflake-shaped Pearloid fingerboard inlays, feathered purfling, rosette, and backstripe, and a Black or Tiger Stripe pickguard are among the cosmetic updates. The PO-220E is also equipped with an ovangkol bridge and fingerboard, a slim-taper mahogany neck, a bone nut and saddle, and a hardshell case.
