From Delta Blues or lap steel slide, to traditional or modern musical styles, the Fender PR-180E Round Neck Resonator has excellent versatility. With exemplary acoustics and an electrified sound. The all-mahogany construction creates the perfect sonic balance of warmth and clarity for fingerstyle, while the metallic spider cone provides superior sustain for bluegrass.
The Fender PR-180E is a resonator guitar for returning to the blues in style. With Fishman® Nashville pickup system.
If you're looking for the classic resonator sound to play Mississippi Delta blues, the Fender PR-180E is an affordable, high-quality choice. And the best part is that it can be played acoustically or connected to an amplification system.
The Fender PR-180E resonator guitar is part of Fender's Paramount Bluegrass Series, a very affordable range of instruments dedicated to traditional American music.
This model immediately stands out for the resonator system based on the Dobro patent, with a metallic resonance cone installed in the mahogany body, from the top to the back and sides. The neck is also in mahogany and the fretboard is in walnut.
The look is vintage, thanks to the shade of the wood in an aged cognac tone gradient, complemented by the pelmet in white, also aged. It plays and feels like a modern instrument but has all the personality of the original instruments from the early 20th century.
Resonator guitars are instruments from a time when electrical amplification was not available, and the invention of resonant cones gave them another presence and volume.
But the Fender PR-180E still has the support of electronics. The Fishman® Nashville Series Resophonic Pickup Preamp is a dedicated pickup that faithfully reproduces and amplifies the signature sound of this instrument.
Fender is one of the biggest brands in the music industry. Since the 1960's it has been at the forefront of building guitars that have become symbols of musical styles and eras. The Paramount series tries to go a little further back, and recover for modern times the traditional instruments that deserve a new life in the hands of new generations.
The focus is on the quality of construction and the aesthetic side of these models, so that musicians can feel that they are playing an original instrument but made following the most modern design and manufacturing practices.
Whether you want to play traditional styles of American music or want more sonic options for your collection, the Fender PR-180E is an inspiring resonator, with the signature sound that makes it stand out from the rest.
