Dear Cork,
I can not give you the exact information. Usually the coronado does about US$ 1.000,-. For the case I don't know.
I mail you because you might be able to help me. I am desperatly seeking for a pick guard for my Cornado XII of "68.
I know that it might be the same shape as the Coronado II.
I'd really like to have my, still in use, instrument in the original shape. If you have information for me, please!

I have a 1968 Fender Coronado II that is missing the chrome bridge cover. Does anyone have a suggestion as to how I could obtain a replacement? It's the only thing missing on an otherwise perfect guitar.

Re: foto flame telecaster japan

Great guitar made in Japan around the 70's - 80's. I own one and they are better than the new Fender's made in Mexico. Grab it if it's in good shape. They sound better than the USA's!

FENDER ACOUSTIC GUITARS.

Has anyone had any experience with the Fender DG-27SCE acoustic guitar. I just do not see anyone playing Fender acoustics at all. Why? The DG-27SCE seems to be the top of the line Fender for Dreadnoughts. Where is it made, Korea or Mexico? Thanks for any advice.

Lookinf for a Fender Malibu!

I am looking for a Fender Malibu, does anyone know where to get one?

Re: Lookinf for a Fender Malibu!

I have had my Malibu since the 60's. I play it every day.
It is the only guitar I practice with. I play live with
a Stratocaster, Telecaster and Precision bass. The finish is almost completely gone but it still playd like butter. I have a Seymour Duncan Woodie sound hole humbucking on it and will play it through the PA when I play live with it. It is a great guitar and it is not replaceable. Pat

63??? twin reverb

Hi all!! I just purchased a twin reverb on ebay. i haven't received it yet so i don't know too many specifics. I'ts a blackface with pullout master volume. I know this is extremely wierd. It's pre '64 because it doesn't have the white ethching around the bright switches. but the serial # is FI30805, I thought fenders had six digit serial #'s??? Also, the fender logo on the grilloe isn't underlined. Could this thing really be authentic? PLEASE HELP!!!

Re: 63??? twin reverb

:Why would you buy something without knowing what you have purchased. No pull out gain on 63'models, not even on a reissue. Every Idiot out there thinks they have a vintage or nos unit because you idiots believe them. Be smart, learn before you burn. I personaly don't care for those units (with the pull out gain) but now that you own one, you can spend the money converting it to 66' specs, if possible with the printed circuit board. I saw a 99" "closet classic" strat advertized today, you can get that for your "vintage 66" 1995 twin. Go to ampage.com, find fenderhaolic (something like that) or find the "Fender field guide" after you get your 66' twin you can find out what you purchased. Good luck, don't forget to pierce something and get another tatoo..........that will make you look smart!

SRV Strat

I just purchased a 1989 model SRV Strat and am curious to know what the fretboard is made of. I saw an ad for a 1990 which said the fretboard was Brazillion Rosewood and that 1990 was the first year but this is incorrect as mine has a serial number that starts SE9 which shows it to be an 89. The SN prefix would start for 1990.
Does anyone know what this fretboard is. It doesn't look like the pao-ferro. Any help is appreciated.
Thanks
Andy

Has anyone seen this guitar?

Give me info on the Prodigy!!!!

Hi there,
Listen, I've got a Fender Prodigy and Iw as just wondering if you could send me some info about it. Anything to do with how good it is and similarities to a Stratocaster would be good.
Thanx anyway,
Daniel

Re: Give me info on the Prodigy!!!!

I also own a prodigy, and haven't been able to find out any info on it. If you, or anyone finds anything please let me know. Thanks.

Re: Give me info on the Prodigy!!!!

I picked up a prodigy and hard case for $200 at a used store. when I looked it up, I found out it was made around '91. even though it says made in us, thats only the neck and electronics. the body was made in mexico. I like the guitar and am curious about how good of a deal I got on it, so, I too would like info on the prodigy. What I know now: I love the way it feels, it fits me like a dream and sounds just as good.

Re: Give me info on the Prodigy!!!!

the prodigy was an attempt by fender to appeal to hard rock players in the early 90s. it was one of the first guitars to come out of the mexico plant. i'm not sure what kind of wood the body is made of. it was discontinued because of it didn't sell well. what a shame. i own one myself, and i wouldn't give it up for anything.
