1966 Fender Coronado I Custom Color

Serial # 178917. Fender introduced the Coronado in '66 to gain some marketshare in the thin-line hollowbody market that Gibson and Gretsch had hadcornered. But their efforts failed and the Coronado line was discontinuedin 1970. These instruments featured a fully hollow body, bolt-on neck, andDe Armond pickups; and were the first guitars for which Fender out-sourcedpickups. The model offered here is a first-year Coronado I, in a MetallicOrange (or very faded Candy Apple Red) Custom Color finish. It's inexcellent and all-original condition and plays wonderfully thanks to anin-shop set up. It sounds as cool as it looks, too!
