An Awesome Fender Semi-hollowbody Guitar Returns!

Get the Fender Coronado semi-hollowbody electric guitar for a refreshing departure from Fender's traditional lineup. The Coronado brings back a rare Fender gem from the mid '60s and gives it a modern Adjusto-Matic bridge for precise intonation, and a pair of hot Fideli'Tron pickups to make your amplifier sing. You have countless tonal variations thanks to separate volume and tone controls for each pickup. And your solos will have epic sustain due to the solid alder center block within the thin semi-hollowbody. Call Sweetwater to get the Fender Coronado semi-hollowbody, and you'll be well-equipped for awesome performance.

Fender Coronado Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Fideli'Tron humbuckers for tone with attitude
  • Separate controls for each pickup give you many more sonic combinations
  • Alder center block gives your tone more sustain
Fideli'Tron humbuckers for tone with attitude

Huge sound, wide tonal range, and aggressive output - this is what your amplifier can expect from the Fideli'Tron humbucking pickups in the Fender Coronado. From smooth and mellow clean tones at the neck position, to biting lead tones at the bridge, you'll have the bold, dynamic tone you need to conjure any sound out of your pedals and amp with the Coronado.

Separate controls for each pickup give you many more sonic combinations

Because the Fender Coronado has volume and tone controls for each pickup you can dial in a wide range of sounds. When you're recording in the studio and are searching for the perfect tonal combination to fit that third, fourth, or fifth guitar part in the mix, you'll be glad you've got the flexibility of the Fender Coronado.

Alder center block gives your tone more sustain

You'll find the thin semi-hollowbody of the Fender Coronado is amazingly comfortable to play while providing a full hollowbody-style tone. You'll also notice your notes sing for days. Fender equipped the Coronado with a solid alder tone block inside its laminated maple body, and it gives it a stronger voice than you'd normally get from a semi-hollow instrument.

Fender Coronado Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Return of the mid-'60s Fender Coronado, a rare gem amongst collectors
  • Laminated maple body with solid alder center block offers prodigious richness, snap, and sustain
  • Fideli'Tron humbucking pickups have a hot output with a wide tonal range
  • Adjusto-Matic bridge for precise intonation and action, with a trapeze tailpiece that looks cool
  • "C"-shape maple neck with 9.5" fretboard radius will appeal to fans of Telecasters and Stratocasters
Your own unique tone awaits in the Fender Coronado semi-hollowbody!

...a re-issued gem !!

This guitar is an absolute TONE MONSTER ! This re-issue has fixed all of the problems that the original model had and has improvements that make it a real standout in the Fender line. The fit and finish are flawless as is the action and balance. Fretwork is VERY GOOD with no sharp edges. The trapeze floating tailpiece makes playing this beauty effortless. The pearloid neck inlays look beautiful and the neck and body binding really complete the appointments this guitar has. The Fidelitron pickups are absolutely sick, in the very best way. They outshine the Filtertrons in that they are much richer in harmonics and when pushed they sound just amazing ! I own over 30 guitars and this one is now in my top 5 favorites ! It has been a long wait for this re-issue but worth it so get yourself one of these before they are all gone !
