Here is a vintage 1968 Fender Coronado II Wildwood I semi-hollowbody electric guitar. This particular example, serial number 214049, is in very good 100% all original condition. With a very mild Wildwood finish featuring significantly less severe color deviation than other Wildwood finishes, this example is actually quite attractive with a seemingly consistent Blonde coloration. Perhaps the most interesting feature is how great this guitar performs in comparison to other Coronados we have offered. The action is perfect, and the neck feels great. It is setup up perfectly, and is a sheer pleasure to play.
Serial Number: 214049 (F Plate)
Neck Stamp: 19 SEP 67
Weight: 6 lbs. 1 oz.
This ’68 Fender Coronado II features: the original Wildwood I finish (green), triple-ply bound beechwood top, bound beechwood back and sides, bound f holes, a 1-piece maple neck, bound rosewood fingerboard with block inlays, (2) DeArmond single coil pickups, adjustable bridge and “F” trapeze tailpiece, Grover tuning machines, and Rickenbacker style knobs.
Light weight, great sounding, and far superior to the majority of Coronados with regard to playability, this is a great guitar. Though there is superficial clear coat finish wear, it does not penetrate the Wildwood finish in the wood. It actually looks much worse in photos than in person.
