One of the more recognisable guitars from Fender's CBS era, the Fender Coronado was unlike any other Fender guitar manufactured at the time. In an uncharacteristic move for Fender in the '60s, the Coronado's hollowbody design and single coil DeArmond pickups are more similar to something like an ES-330, and offer a sound not found on any other Fender model.
This 1967 Coronado Wildwood is in excellent all original condition, and is a great example of the model. The Wildwood models were constructed from dyed Beechwood bodies with six colour variations, with this particular guitar being a Wildwood 'II' (Gold and Brown). Although the original dye has faded as many of them have, this guitar still has a striking grain pattern and faint hue from the dye that remains. The hardware and electronics are original including the DeArmond pickups, which have an open, airy tone that is very well balanced between the neck and the bridge pickup. The guitar is finished off with block pearloid inlays and the traditional Coronado headstock.
This guitar is in very good cosmetic condition, and includes an original case.
