The Coronado has Returned

For the guitarist who appreciates a fabled Fender instrument with a special history, the Coronado guitar is back with greater sound, build and beauty than ever. In the mid-to-late 1960s, the Coronado family was Fender’s first foray into the hollow body electric guitar world. Now the Coronado name and style have returned in an utterly cool Modern Player model with stunning looks, tone and features, including a thin semi-hollow body with stylish binding and bound F holes, special humbucking pickups, distinctive headstock, vintage-style bridge/tailpiece and much more. The return of a true Fender original.

  • Thin semi-hollow maple body with alder center-block, bound top and back, and bound f holes
  • 9.5”-radius bound rosewood fingerboard with 21 medium jumbo frets and white pearloid block inlays
  • Dual Fideli’Tron humbucking pickups
  • Three-way toggle pickup switch on lower horn
  • Four skirted amp control knobs (volume and tone for each pickup)
  • Adjusto-Matic™ bridge with floating “F” trapeze tailpiece

  • Highlights

    Alder Center Block

    A big part of this instrument’s resonant tonal character comes from its semi-hollow maple body, which improves on the original design with an alder center block for more sustain and less susceptibility to feedback.

    Fideli’Tron™ Pickups
    Fideli’Tron™ Pickups

    The well-rounded, sweet and distinctively jangly tone of this guitar comes from its dual Fideli’Tron humbucking pickups, which deliver a great vintage-style look and fantastic Fender sound.
