Fender Paramount PM-3 Standard

U.S.-designed Paramount series acoustic instruments are finely crafted and specially voiced to bring your artistic vision to life. Each 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 this art deco look, Paramount instruments still retain their footing in modern design. All-new Fender- and Fishman®-designed PM preamp systems are specifically voiced for each body shape in the series, ensuring complete tonal control and variation.

  • Checkerboard purfling and rosette
  • Mahogany back and sides
  • Sitka spruce top
  • Mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard
  • Comes with Fender Hard Case

ALL-SOLID DESIGN

With all-solid back, sides and top, Paramount Standard acoustics are 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.

FENDER- AND FISHMAN®-DESIGNED PM PREAMP

Complete with tuner, frequency (bass, middle and treble) and phase controls, this collaboration in preamp design is specially voiced for each Paramount body 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.

CHECKERBOARD PURFLING AND ROSETTE

Inspired by art deco design and inlaid around the body and down the back of each acoustic, the black-and-white checkers offset the natural beauty of the Paramount tone woods. Most importantly, they evoke a true old-school acoustic vibe, matched with playability for any occasion.

UNIQUE VINTAGE-STYLE FINGERBOARD INLAYS

Adding to the "art nouveau" vibe of the Paramount series are its 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.

DISTINCTIVE FENDER HEADSTOCK SHAPE

The Paramount Series captures the essence of traditional Fender acoustics, with a headstock that pays tribute to our acoustic legacy.

THE PERFECT PREMIUM CASE

Diligently designed to accommodate each Paramount acoustic to perfection, each molded hardshell case features purple plush interior lining—a regal touch that offets the instrument's eye-catching tonewoods and binding. It also sports a useful storage compartment, making gig-to-gig transport a cinch.
