Fender Coronado and Starcaster Return!

Fender Coronado and Starcaster Return
The Fender Starcaster and Coronado Guitars are back!
Fender have brought the Coronado and Starcaster guitar and bass models back!

The Coronado returns "with a greater sound, build and beauty than ever", say Fender.

The Coronado maintains its place in Fender's history as their first hollow-body electric guitar. Reintroduced into the Modern Player family, the Coronado features a thin semi-hollow maple body and maple neck, and a design favoured by Dave Davies and Elvis.

Available in 3-Color Sunburst, Black , Candy Apple Red and Black Cherry Burst, other features on the Coronado include dual Fideli'Tron humbucking pickups, an Adjusto-Matic bridge and a floating 'F' trapeze tailpiece.

Moving on from the '60s into the '70s, we also see the return of the Fender Starcaster.

With a semi-offset body and inimitable black stripe headstock, the Modern Player Starcaster also features a maple neck. There are a pair of Fender Wide Range humbucking pickups, an Adjusto-matic bridge and a bound maple top and back.

Finished in Natural, gloss Black or Aged Cherry Burst gloss, the Starcaster has star quality sound, build and beauty.

Take a look at the Coronado and Starcaster bass guitars, and watch how artists such as Frightened Rabbit, Band of Horses, Local Natives and more reacted to the reissue news.

Thank you, Fender, indeed!
