What Haworth Guitars say:
The Fender PM-1 Standard Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar is a high-quality, all-solid steel string guitar by Fender.
The solid spruce top and solid mahogany back and sides give the Fender PM-1 Standard Guitar a massive, bright tone acoustically and the Fender Fishman pickup system gives the PM1 a bold bright tone when amplified.
At Haworth Guitars, we find that the C-shaped mahogany neck is comfortable and easy to play on the Fender Paramount PM-1 Standard Guitar, while the bone nut and saddle as well as the abalone and mother of pearl inlays give the Fender PM-1 Standard an extra level of class and quality.
Here's what Fender has to say:
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.
The Paramount Standard Dreadnought features thoughtful vintage appointments as well as the craftsmanship of a truly high-performing instrument. Crafted from premium all-solid tonewoods including mahogany back and sides and Sitka spruce top and equipped with quartersawn scalloped "X"-bracing, the Standard Dreadnought is designed with freely vibrating, resonant tone in mind. It also features a fast-playing "C"-shaped mahogany neck with rosewood fingerboard, both designed to accommodate the most demanding playing styles. Includes a humidifier and hardshell case.
