Product Description

This is a really fine example of the Fender Coronado 11 thinline.There are some peculiarities regarding this instrument and I would appreciate any input from Fender officianados out there for example:-

The neck, which is a beautifully marked curly/birdseye maple is marked as 19Dec1967B, I did'nt think they produced the Coronado 11 at that time, the machine heads have the traditional "F" marked on the back but they have plastic buttons, also on the back of the neck where it fits into the body is marked as " Special". As you will see from the pics. It dos'nt have the pick guard on it and the holes have been filled with what looks like a silastic material, I quite like the look of it without the pick-guard. The serail number on the backplate is 503986 which would date the guitar to be approx 1972? Altogether a stunning guitar in a really nice case and highly collectable.

Written by Jeff Owens

Fender’s first foray into hollow-body electric instruments was the highly distinctive Coronado family of guitars and basses, which debuted in early 1966.

November 1965 Fender Facts newsletter announcing the as-yet unnamed "Thin-Line" electrics soon dubbed the Coronado instruments. 

So when CBS acquired Fender in early 1965—right around the time when a Stratocaster first appeared on a Beatles song (“Ticket to Ride”) and just before the Byrds (signed to the CBS-owned Columbia Records label) made their first chart ascent with an electrified cover of Bob Dylan’s “Mr. Tambourine Man”—the giant parent company undoubtedly noted the continuing popularity of hollow-body instruments and the fact that its new acquisition out west didn’t make any. Yet.

Like many of the more esoteric Fender instruments of the 1960s and ’70s, Coronado guitars and basses have enjoyed an extremely hip resurgence in modern times; particularly in U.K. alternative rock. Notable players include Blur’s Graham Coxon (“She’s So High”), Thom Yorke and Colin Greenwood (see Yorke play Greenwood’s sunburst Coronado Bass on “Harrowdown Hill”), Kasabian’s Sergio Pizzorno (see live version of “Underdog”), Yo La Tengo’s Ira Kaplan (see a live version of “Stupid Things”), Jimmie Vaughan (see “Jimmy Reed Highway” from a 2007 Austin City Limits performance), Soul Coughing’s Mike Doughty (see a live version of “Circles”), Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard (see the “You are a Tourist” video), and the Dandy Warhols’ Courtney Taylor (see the “Bohemian Like You” video). Other Coronado players include Simon Tong (Verve; the Good, the Bad & the Queen), James Huggins (Of Montreal, James Husband), Josh Klinghoffer (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Steve Kilbey (the Church) and Grant-Lee Phillips.
