The Paramount currently has a very low action. I checked and it has a 1/2" bridge. What height and style should have been on the Paramount originally?
Also, is there a Paramount expert on here?

I understood that Paramounts were originaly set up with a 5/8th bridge - they were quite slim and fragile in maple wood with an ebony strip for the string slots, 2 feet not three.
I am not a Paramount expert, although I have owned most of the range over the years. My only Paramount now is an Artcraft - they are quite special. Enjoy !

Thank you for the info! Between the 20 year old strings and the low action, it buzzes badly. I should have the new strings and a 5/8 bridge in a couple days.
