 1960's Fender Coronado II Wildwood IV with original GOLD HARDARE! Judging by its appointments, it probably dates to late 1967 or early 1968. The gold neck plate has an "L" serial number which dates to 1964, but the guitar was obviously made later than '64. This guitar was some kind of prototype, one-off NAMM show guitar, or a custom order by someone with a lot of pull at Fender. There's no neck date, or "Coronado II" decal as this was not from the normal production line. The "Wildwood IV" decal is on the body where the usual models have the Wildwood name embossed on the pick guard. The vibrato is also unique to this guitar as it is variation of the usual vibrato from the Coronado guitars, but with a solid finished wood block on top. The pickups, wiring, and knobs are all DeArmond made. The color and pattern in this Wildwood IV is amazing. It has a great playing neck with great frets. It's all original and 100% complete including its original hardshell case (missing handle). There's an extra screw hole underneath the pick guard, and another extra screw hole on the face of the headstock from an additional string tree. This rare Coronado is in EXCELLENT condition with some minor cosmetic wear. Everything remains structurally sound with no cracks, breaks, or repairs.
