The Paramount PS-220E mixes cutting-edge craftsmanship with vintage-inspired accents to provide the best of both worlds. The PS-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 created by Fender and Fishman® amplifies the tight, articulate tone of the PS-220E's newly designed parlour 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 PS-220E also has an ovangkol bridge and 14-fret fingerboard, as well as a slim-taper mahogany neck, bone nut and saddle, and a hardshell case.
