The Coronado Series was Fender's first attempt to enter the hollowbody market dominated by Gibson, Gretsch, and other builders. The Coronado was available in a few different configurations; the Coronado II featured two single-coil pickups built by DeArmond, and block inlays on a bound neck.
Unfortunately, the Coronados did not catch on sufficiently after their introduction in 1966 and remained on the market for only a few years, until Fender decided in 1972 to pull the plug on production. However, due to their unique character, these guitars are loved by various players and collectors.
Dressed in a beautiful 'Dakota Red' finish, this Coronado II is in excellent condition. The small paint chips, playwear and craquelure are to be expected for a guitar of this age. The nut has been replaced, but the guitar has excellent playability and sound.
The guitar comes with TFOA passport in a hardshell case.
