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 XII is in excellent all original condition. The red finished Maple body has faded slightly over the years, but retains the reddish orange hue often found on these guitars. 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 black Coronado XII hockey stick headstock. The rear of the headstock also features a 'Special' stamp beneath the lacquer, indicating it was either a trade show guitar or special order.
This guitar is in excellent cosmetic condition, and includes its original case. This guitar has been given a full service by our luthiers at the Vintage Instrument Workshop, and includes a 3 year warranty.
