    This is an all-orginal 67 Fender Coronado Bass I. Unfortunately, in my possession means "not mine." It belongs to a friend and I offered to tweak it up a bit. I may have to hang on to it for a while to make sure it's set up correctly. LOL.

    It quite a beauty and is in fantastic shape for being over 50 years old. Light as a feather at about 6.5 lbs. Lollipop tuners. Some gorgeous flame on the back of the neck. Original hard case. What's there not to love?

    I had to shim the neck to get the action fairly low and now it plays as nice as it looks.
