The classic is back with greater sound, build and beauty.

The Coronado guitar is back, with greater sound, build and beauty than ever for the guitarist who appreciates a different Fender guitar with a special history. 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 returns to Fender as an utterly cool new guitar in the Modern Player family, with stunning looks, tone and features.

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. Its "C"-shaped maple neck has a 9.5"-radius white-bound rosewood fingerboard with 21 medium jumbo frets and elegant white pearloid block inlays. Other distinctive features include dual Fideli'Tron humbucking pickups with three-way toggle switching, three-ply black pickguard, four skirted "amp"-style control knobs (volume and tone for each pickup) and an Adjusto-Matic bridge with floating "F" trapeze tailpiece.

  • The Fender Coronado Is Amazing

    As reviewed by Kerry Ford on 1/20/2014

    I had my first Coronado in 1968. I sold it in 1980 and have regreted it ever since. After seeing that Fender was going to start making them again, I knew I had to get one. Well, I got it and all I can say is "BUY IT " !! There are no design flaws in this guitar. It is everything an electric guitar should be. The pickups are a perfect match and deliver every tone I have been missing with my Strat and Telecaster. The Coronado blows them away. The neck fits my hand like it was custom made. The playability is second to none. I know each guitar player has their own idea about what sound they want to hear but I can tell you this, I am selling my Strat and Telecaster because the Fender Coronado is everything I will ever want or need in an electric guitar. You need to put this guitar on your "Must have list".

  • Fender Coronado; a great value

    As reviewed by Bruce Weese on 2/3/2014

    The Fender Coronado re-issue is a fantastic guitar at any price. The price is much less than the vintage instruments I had been seeking. The Coronado was playable out of the box. I did file the string slots down at the nut, as I prefer to do with any new guitar. The rest of the set up was made very easy by the fact that the truss rod adjustment is now at the headstock, not at the body as with the vintage guitars. The adjusto-matic bridge made the intonation straight forward. The floating bridge featured in the vintage model has been changed to a pinned bridge, the set up you choose will stay in place. Another change is the 9.5" radius fretboard. I would have preferred the original 7.25" radius but I'm having no problem making this work for me. The pick-ups are humbucking FideliTrons! How on earth did Fender produce such a great guitar at such a great price? The guitar looks fantastic, the back and top are bound and there are pearloid block inlays marking the frets.Oh yes, it sounds absolutely fantastic.

  • The Amazing Coronado!

    As reviewed by APRIL PANICHAYA on 1/29/2014

    I never write reviews but after receiving the Fender Coronado a few days ago, I was compelled to write one. After waiting a few months for this to arrive, I finally was able to play this guitar. First of all, the finish of the guitar is fantastic. There isn't a blemish that I can see. The 3 tone sunburst is beautiful. I'm impressed with the quality of the entire guitar build. It's a little heavier than I anticipated but that's not a problem. The setup out of the box was really good. I just tweaked a little bit on the bridge saddles. The action was nice and low. This plays like a dream. I'm really digging the Fidelitron pickups. It's something different from what I normally play, which is a Jazzmaster. I think is going to be new favorite guitar to play. Really impressed with the quality of instruments being made in China. This feels like it should be more expensive. A great bang for your buck! I only wish Fender included a hardshell case but other than that I would buy another.
