1968 Fender Coronado II, Wildwood I Finish
Fender’s take on a double cutaway hollowbody was the Coronado, released in 1966. The line included single and dual pickup models (Coronado I and II). Pictured is a stunning 1968 Fender Coronado II model, with two De Armond pickups and optional tremolo. It sports a Wildwood I finish. The Wildwood finishes were obtained by injecting colorful dyes into beech trees, and three varieties were available. Photo and information from Dave’s Guitar Shop.
