A near-mint Fender Coronado II in cherry red is definitely among the coolest CBS-era Fender models out there. This one is crazy-clean, beautifully set up, and sounds remarkably good. It’s a non-trem model, too, so playability is more predictable and intonation is improved over the tremolo-equipped models.

This Coronado II example has a neck that’s dates to March of 1967. We couldn’t easily get pot codes but can confirm that they are original to the guitar, with original solder intact. The neck has a standard B-width of 1-5/8”, and a nicely deep first fret depth of .893”. The neck profile remains fairly consistent up the neck, and the 12th fret thickness measures .914”. The single-coil pickups are strong, with a clean and slightly fat response. DC values are 9.2k and 10.0K. The guitar weighs just over 6lbs.

Set-up in shop, this guitar plays beautifully with original frets that show light playwear.

With original case.
