1967 Fender Coronado II SB

$3295 CAD ($2471.25 USD)
Fender’s response to the very popular thin-body hollow and semi-hollow guitars built by Gibson, Epiphone, Rickenbacker and Gretsch in the mid 1960s was the Coronado line of double-cutaway guitars, introduced in 1966. The Coronado I and II featured full-hollow construction, DeArmond pickups, optional Tremolo systems, Fender F tuners, and Gibson-style switching and controls, and they came in a rainbow of colours, as well as Sunburst.

This example is in excellent condition and is completely original. It’s unmodified and remarkably clean apart from a filled-in extra string tree screw-hole and a bit of vinyl strap finish damage on the guitar’s back. It’s nicely set-up, and quite a good looking machine. All electronics are factory original and unaltered, and the finish is untouched. The original frets show much less than average wear and remain quite playable, and the set-up was just done here in our shop.

Maple neck with bound Indian rosewood fretboard and pearloid markers, original hardware throughout, including the trem arm. The trem system has a supple and expressive feel. It’s fully floating and quite responsive.

1-5/8” nut, 25.5” scale. The neck measures within .010 of .880” in depth from the first to the 14th fret. The pickups measure 9.6 and 9.9k, and the guitar weighs just 7.0 lbs.

With original hardshell case
