Coronado is back and ready to rock! Fender reissued the "Coronado," it's first hollow-body electric guitar last week. It was first introduced in the mid-to-late 1960's and is now reportedly being built with greater sound and build.
A spokesman with Fender said he was uncertain where the name comes from, but verified it's now on sale.
"The Fender Coronado guitar's thin semi-hollow maple body has an alder center-block and bound top and back, with stylish bound f holes," the product description states. "It's 'C'-shape maple neck has a 9.5" radius white-bound rosewood fingerboard with 21 medium jumbo frets and elegant white pearloid block inlays."
It is available in three-color sunburst, black, candy apple red and black cherry burst gloss finishes and priced at $899.
In addition, Fender released another oldie but goodie—the Starcaster. This mid-to-late 70's guitars was Fender's only offset-waist semi-hollow electric guitar.
