BURBANK, Calif. (June 23, 2016) – Fender Musical Instruments Corporation (FMIC) announces the launch of several additions to their ever-expanding acoustic guitar business just in time for Summer NAMM 2016 in Nashville, TN. Introduced earlier this year, the Paramount™ Series now boasts four high-end Paramount Limited models, along with the Paramount PM-1 Standard Dreadnought NE, All-Mahogany. In addition, Fender will debut three new T-Bucket™ models at the show. NAMM show attendees will have the opportunity to see—and experience—Fender’s newest upgrades to its acoustic guitar line as well as learn about our continued commitment to this category. The evolution of the Paramount Series signifies Fender’s growth in the performance acoustic guitar market.

Designed in the U.S., Paramount Series acoustic instruments are finely crafted and specially voiced to bring a player’s personal artistic vision to life. The four new Paramount Limited models offer an upgraded and premium musical experience with key features including solid AA Adirondack spruce top and Adirondack spruce X-brace, lacquer finish, upgraded fingerboard inlay and bone bridge pins. The results are guitars with enhanced dynamic response and extended range of performance.

The PM-1 Standard Dreadnought NE, All-Mahogany is the first accessible, acoustic-only model within the Paramount Series line. With an all-solid mahogany top, back and sides and an open-pore finish that’s smooth and soft to the touch, it’s the perfect acoustic complement for passionate players who prefer a more natural look and feel.

Lastly, three new redesigned models are being added to the T-Bucket collection. These are geared towards players looking for a guitar with an alternative aesthetic at an accessible price point.

“We are excited to release our new Paramount Limited guitars and additional models on the heels of our successful Paramount Series launch earlier this year,” said Billy Martinez, Vice President Category, Acoustics. “We are committed to delivering a new generation of performance acoustics and a continued dedication to this category. We hold all of our guitars to the highest standard; we look forward to Paramount Series upholding that tradition.”
