Hard Rock Collection's Iconic Axes, Part 1
Ike Turner’s 1967 Fender Coronado II
Big, bad Ike Turner owned this groovy hollowbody Fender Coronado II guitar during the late ’60s. These old Coronados are interesting guitars, but they never really caught on with the music community. Maybe the guitar world just wasn’t ready for a bolt-neck semi-hollow. They’re the brainchild of former Rickenbacker designer Roger Rossmeisl.
