1966 Fender Coronado I, NAMM Special

Serial # 199643. Built as a NAMM special for the 1966 NAMM show, this Coronado I's body is finished in a translucent cherry red lacquer (think ES-335), and the headstock is black. The white two-ply pickguard, yellowed binding, and chromed parts give the guitar are very striking and attractive look.

It's a completely original guitar, but with a new bridge-top that we've installed to replace the warped original bakelite unit (which we'll provide with the guitar). Set-up in our shop, the guitar plays well and cleanly up the neck.

double cut away 16.25" laminated maple hollow body, bolt-on maple neck with Indian rosewood fretboard, pearloid dots, bone nut, F Tuners with white plastic buttons, and single string tree. Single pickup in the neck position, trapeze tailpiece and two-piece bakelite bridge base. The back of the headstock is stamped 'SPECIAL' to denote the guitar's raison-d'etre.

Unworn original frets, a few dings and scratches on the finish, not much in the way of playwear.
