wonder how this compares with the Martin X Series in terms of how they play and sound. Yes, I know the X series is not solid wood and some even call them plastic but then said they sounded pretty good. comments appreciated.

I have both the PM-1 and PM-2 (parlor) deluxe. The PM-1 has a little smaller (width neck) They both play well out of the box. I may have the PM-1 action adjusted down a bit. Very nice guitars for the price.

Sounds kind of thin to me, but it's hard to tell through a computer.

It's no Taylor, but it's also $500.

I wanted one of these the first time Iconian posted one of his Adorama deals. But then they had these in-ear studio monitors and I couldn't decide if that was the best deal, which I think it was. Which made me wait when along came about 3 more. Now I've decided --- I'll just wait and since $500 pretty much is the regular price at Adorama now, I'll buy one of yours for half that on ebay in a couple years! Wink

Probably will be $500 or even more on ebay or reverb used - remember, retail on this guitar is still $1000 and the used prices on a name brand like Fender reflect that. These guitars won't retain their value like a Strat or a Tele but even a used MIM Tele these days is $400+ (retail on them is now $625 and was $500 just a few years ago).

As you probably have guessed, these aren't selling well and Fender has discontinued the Paramount Deluxe, so they're correcting the "problem" by not releasing more supply.

If you're feeling "meh" on this, I wouldn't buy it, but I don't think you'll be able to get it cheaper even used.
