More about Coronado Guitar

La guitare Coronado est de retour et dispose à présent de sonorités, d’une construction et d’une esthétique encore inégalées. Elle s’adresse aux guitaristes qui recherchent une guitare Fender différente et bénéficiant d’une histoire qui lui est propre. Entre le milieu et la fin des années 60, la gamme Coronado a constitué la première incursion de Fender dans le monde des guitares électriques « hollow body ». Le nom et le style des Coronado sont à présent de retour chez Fender à travers cette guitare particulièrement attractive, qui a rejoint la gamme des Modern Player avec son esthétique, ses sonorités et ses caractéristiques exceptionnelles.

Le mince corps en aulne de cette « semi-hollow » dispose d’une table et d’un dos en érable et d’ouïes en « f » au binding élégant. Son manche en érable profilé en « C » dispose d'une touche de radius 9,5” en palissandre, d'un filet blanc et sertie de 21 frettes medium jumbo, et de belles incrustations « block » en perloid blanc. Les autres caractéristiques remarquables comprennent deux micros humbucker Fideli’Tron™ avec un sélecteur trois positions, une plaque de protection noire trois plis, quatre boutons de réglage « à jupe » de style « ampli » (volume et tonalité pour chaque micro) et un chevalet Adjusto-Matic™ doté d’un cordier trapézoïdal flottant arborant le « F » de la marque. Disponible avec les superbes finitions brillantes Three-color Sunburst, Black, Candy Apple Red et Black Cherry Burst.

Got my Brand New Coronado II from one of the bigger box music stores,It was advertised a month before it was available, and honestly, for the beauty of it, it deserves a hard shall case.. it took an hour with a magic marker to obliterate epiphone off the sheraton case (one of the few it fits.) HOWEVER it is easily the best out-of-box guitar I've ever purchased and there is no question that these 2014 models will jump significantly price-wise when the music world takes a good look at this excellent Fender product. The action is superb and the neck is perfect for frog hands like mine, I can bend that B string almost an inch!! This guitar, like its predecessors will become a classic, and the fact that it's an offshore model with original Fender quality makes it that much better. I'd love to see this in a natural finish.

Almost perfect

Recently purchased. Neck is perfect, good frets, no problems. Pickups are very nice. Robust clean with a very familiar 3-tone Fender sound even with these pickups. Plenty of warm grit when driven as well. I had to adjust the intonation right away, as one might with any new guitar. Fortunately, the bridge is accurately located so the intonation is now spot on, with no problems there either. The only real issue I ran into was having to file the nut a bit as the strings were too high at the first fret. That said, the guitar was still very playable out of the box. *Conclusion - considering all the usual fine tuning any new guitar might require, this model seems well built and very agreeable. I only wish Fender would have sprung for matching headstock and optional tremolo.

I own four of the original Fender Coronado II Guitars. Antigua, Red, Sunburst and Wildwood. I played the Antigua for most of the 7 years that I had a country/country rock band. I like the feel and playability very much. I found the tone range to be useable for most types of music. Whenever anyone sat in with my band they always asked if they could play the Antigua, and I would play my backup, a Fender Jazzmaster. I was lucky enough to be able to purchase the others along the way, and I currently play the Wildwood at Open mikes & Jam sessions. I still have a list of people that want to buy any of them.. I'll be trying one of the Reissues out, and I'll probably add one to my collection.

I have owned the original six string Fender Coronado II since 1967. Fit and finish is impeccable. It has the original Victoria hard case and all documents. I just had a set up done on it and it is absolutely gorgeous! It has always played and sounded wonderful. The neck is smooth and fast. The hollow sound is so unique and has continued to mellow over the years. I have only played it with tube driven amps for some of the most bluesy, rhythm and lead parts you've ever heard. I also have an American Stratocaster and Fender acoustic among other various Martin's and Yamaha's.
If the reissue is anything like the original, I'm buying another!

I had the chance to play that guitar at my local guitar shop. I fell in love with her immediately. The tone is sweet and at the same time crunchy. It can pull some pretty serious funky sounds without making the tone sound hard. Although people usually compare her with a Gisbon ES 335 I would argue that its sound is more common to a Gretch White Falcon combined with Fender Stratocaster. For those who are not familiar with Gretch instruments, that means nice warm tones with crunchy vibes. The design is just an eye delight, even if you don't play it you just want to look at it. I have the pleasure to own a good amount of Fender guitars but the Coronado is just wonderful. Easy to play and also pretty fast. Also, the price seems about right. I am well aware of how expensive hollow bodied guitars cost to built so I really believe that the price is fair.
