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.
The pure and well-defined tone of the Coronado Bass comes from its dual Fideli’Tron humbucking bass pickups, which deliver a great vintage-style look and fantastic Fender bass sound.
This bass features Fender’s classic short scale length (30”) for pronounced playing comfort for students and beginners, smaller players and anyone who enjoys the easy reach of a short-scale bass.
Among its other highly individualized design elements, the Coronado Bass features an Adjusto-Matic bass bridge for notable string placement and tuning stability, and the added benefit of an authentically vintage-style look.
Like its 1960s ancestors, the Coronado bass features the refined high-end touch of attractive binding on the top, back and neck.
This instrument features a stylish and great-feeling modern neck with a comfortable “C” profile (the shape of the neck in cross section), smooth-playing finish and fingerboard, and convenient adjustability for periodic maintenance. The latest in smooth Fender playability.
