1966 Fender Coronado II Hollowbody 3-Tone Sunburst
If you were to try to imagine the the most “un-Fender” guitar possible, a fully hollow arch-top would spring to mind, but that’s just what the Coronado is! It still feels very much like a Fender when it is in your hands as the neck is constructed just like their other iconic guitars of the day. That means it has the comfy medium C shape and the finish is slowly wearing down to bare wood, a combo that just always feels “right.” The pickups have a slightly different kind of “sparkle” as they were made by DeArmond, and they pair wonderfully with the full sound you get from a hollowbody. The Coronado’s cutaways and headstock are it’s signature, making it both familiar and unique at the same time. Fender has finally gotten around to reissuing it but you can still grab a cool vintage example like this for a good price.
