Truly the Supreme Leader of low end, the Nelson Parmount will inundate all with sonorous tones and inordinate sustain! The multi-piece quarter-sawn hard maple neck is set into the soft maple body with hot hide glue.


The fingerboard is radiused to a comfortable 9.5″ and is precision fitted with medium-tall frets, highly polished to provide a fast playing response.


The Paramount comes standard with a pair of Nelson “Dynamo” single-coil pickups, mounted to a gold-anodized aluminum pickguard. These pickups have been specially designed to faithfully reproduce the bass register yielding balanced, clear, resonant tones. The pickups are wax potted so undesirable micro-phonics are eliminated. The aluminum pickguard affords greater wear resistance and beauty, while blocking unwanted magnetic interference which can also cause hum.


To round out this regal instrument, the Paramount is finished in a luxurious satin lacquer. Many colors are available; please inquire with your color request.
