The Parkwood PW360M Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar has a solid spruce top, and solid back and sides. Braces are hand scalloped and cosmetic appointments are elegant. The PM360M is finished in an ultra thin "open pore" finish that lets the sound come through loud and clear.
Whether you've been playing for years, or are looking to upgrade to your first high quality guitar, Parkwood is your only choice for solid woods, expert build, exceptional playability and real tone at an extraordinary price.
Dreadnought body shape with added cutaway. You get the fullness of the dreadnought body shape with the convenience of the upper cutaway. For the player that uses the entire fret board, the upper cutaway offers access to the highest frets normally un reachable on a regular guitar.
Open Pore Finish
This finish is applied in several layers that allow the open pores of the wood to be felt and to also allow the wood to breathe and vibrate at its best. You can actually feel the wood grain, like it was a raw unfinished piece of wood. The tone of an open pore finish is loud, alive and natural.
Top - Sitka Spruce (Picea sitchensis)
Sitka Spruce comes from the Pacific northwest and today is the most commonly used wood for guitar tops. Sitka is a bit stronger and stiffer than other spruces. Its strength and toughness make it well suited for steel string guitars.
Back & Sides - Mahogany (Khaya ivorensis)
Mahogany is softer and lighter than Rosewood. Generally, Mahogany is warmer and has more low end, providing a strong, thumping bass with an emphasis on clear, bright, airy, trebles. It's also used for bracing, binding, end blocks, heel blocks and necks
Fishman Premium SOB
Fishman's latest addition to the Prefix Series includes many features from their Stereo Blender, including an onboard chromatic tuner, internal microphone, and a streamined new look. This updated preamp offers stereo or mono signal paths and a new low-noise circuit for the system's undersaddle pickup and internal microphone. The key improvement to this unit is the addition of a mono/stereo switch, which allows the player to choose between a single blended signal or splitting the onboard microphone and under-saddle signal. Shelving bass and treble, plus a semi-parametric "Contour" EQ is included to shape the guitar's tone. To complete the package, a phase switch and a redesigned notch filter (with more transparency) are included for fighting feedback.
The onboard digital chromatic tuner is highly accurate. The tuner is very reliable and easy to use. It lets the PARKWOOD player blend sounds from both the pickup and the microphone that result in a unique and personal sound that is yours alone.

This guitar is stunning. I played 100s of acustics looking for my perfect match. The only thing that I seemed to like was Taylor. Unfortunately, I didn't want to drop $1500-$4000. Luckily, I happen to pick up this guitar. I felt the same power, tone, and slickness that Taylor had. My hand slid over the frets like butter. Perhaps it was too good to be true. However, I tried pluging it in and I was amazing again. I played this guitar for an hour even though I knew I wanted it after the first few minutes. Great guitar live or in a studio. Thank you Parkwood.---The Guitar Hero
This is an all natural wood guitar without any laminate, which means the wood needs to breathe with a humidifier. This means more work to maintain, but you also get a more real, rich tone. I have owned this guitar for about 6 years and it has been amazing. The quality of craftsmanship and quality can be compared to other non-laminate Martins and Taylors, but the difference is that this guitar is at a 1/4 of the price. If you're okay with taking care of this guitar, it will return the favor with crisp, clean, natural and beautiful tone.
I wanted to get a good quality Acoustic Electric guitar. I tried out a few Takamines and also the Martin DCX1E. The takamines were strong, but somehow lacked the warm mellow wooden sound. The martin DCX1E had a beatiful sound to it, but the finish was pretty ordinary. the Back and sides were not even wood, they were HPL and frankly it was not built for rough use. It was basically a lower end Martin. If you want Quality Martin, you'll have to shell out much more. Then fortunately i saw the Parkwood PW360M. The moment I played it, I could feel the beatiful wooden acoustic sound ringing. It was very easy to play, with very low action. Initially the strings buzzed when hit hard. But when I adjusted the Action, it stopped buzzing and gave superb sound. The guitar is all solid wood unlike the Martin DXC. It also features nice Fishman Electronis with both pick up and mic setup. Also had an Built in Tuner. In all it was the most balanced guitar I could find in terms of Sound, Playability, Quality, Strength and Price. The finish was too good. It felt like a lifelong Guitar.I wondered why Parkwoods aren't that talked about. I bought it without a doubt in mind that I was getting the full worth of the money I put in.
I love this guitar, amazing electronic features. get this, stereo on board switching, plug in a trs cable and your good to go, on board input trim adjustment, and condensor microphone, all found when you lift up the face plate. I'm in the same boat with everyone else, wanted the taylor, but couldn't afford the tag at the time. For a full time worship leader, session musician, and engineer, this guitar is primo. the only way to go. Beautiful set net, natural woods and binding, matchbox back peice and a one of a kind fishman prefix sob. love it.
I feel that Parkwood is putting a lot of heart and soul into these guitars, in order to get a name for themselves. My guitar is super nice! It has a better Fishman pickup in it than my 510 Taylor. The woods are very nice (remember - all solid wood),the set up was good, and the sustain is pretty awesome for a new guitar under $1000.00. I use 12-53 Phosper strings, and that added even more tone and sustain. I recommend you get one now; before they can raise the prices because of quality and demand, on a well built product.
This is probibly the most amazing accoustic guitar I've ever played! Ive played a lot of accoustics before, but there is definately something unique about this one. The tone is super bright with just enough bottom end to keep it interesting. I only played it for about a half an hour at a local guitar store, but the first strum was enough to convince me that this could possibly be the best accoustic in the WORLD!!!
