Re: Fender Coronado

: I have a fender coronado, no clue what year it is, or what it is worth. The Serial # is 208828, im not even sure if that is the right #, but the only other # on the guitar is the patent pending one. Can anyone help me out?
: Thanks, Dan

Fender Coronados and Coronado II's do not follow the rules when it comes to dating them. I have seen 1968's with sr# in the 500,000's. I have a 1968 that is SR# 269??? (sorry can't remember the last 3 digets) I varified the year by cross checking the neck stamp. The problem with this is that it has the same neck one would find on several other style of fenders. So some instruments that came out in 1968 have neck dates of 1966, some even from 1965. Dificult bussiness.

I'm Jerry ( West Midlands - England) I have a Fender Coronado II in Sunset Orange. 1966 or 67, superb example, and I would consider a sale or swap for another nice USA guitar.
