This looks amazing. Never seen a Coronado in Shoreline Gold. Apparently 100% original too.

Stunning. Hard to believe it's not a new guitar.

If Fender are taking notes, FSR Modern Player Coronado in Shoreline Gold please!

Wow! Never seen a gold one. Must be a custom factory paint job.

Agree, hope it is real.
Looks too nice, but I'd still keep it either way.

I'd imagine the FMIC is embarrassed as fuck this pic of their dark past got out. No TOM, no 9.5" radius, no jumbo frets, no Duncan Designed P90s...

Gold and black is a good combo.

Although, according to Mr. T, there is such a thing as too much gold; it was causing him neck problems.

Someone educate me on original pickups of Coronado. What are they the beasts? They look like P90 or some of Gretsch pickups or Rickenbacker highgains, but what they are inside? Are they just usual strat style pickups with magnet pole pieces and without any magnet at the bottom under the coils and that just covered diferently? Or they are of exlusive design?

Really really weak Rowe-Dearmond pickups. Probably the oddest pairing of two companies ever.

It's a DeArmond pickup and IMO not a very good one(the silver cover) compared to other Dearmond designed/made pickups. But some people on this board seem to like them and Fender might have used two different versions.

Thank you for the information. I don't know a lot abour Dearmonds pickups, so it is the reason to read. I guess indistinct pickups became the reason why Coronado's werent' so popular at the time.

Coronado pickups are great. My mate Ray was always dissing them up until a few weeks ago when we went to see the Dandy Warhols and the dude broke a string on his Coronado and plugged in the other guitarists Tele while it was getting sorted, and Ray was the one who mentioned how bad the Tele sounded in comparison. It was comparatively flat sounding (And I love a Tele)

I guess it's a case of personal taste but it was interesting to see an A/B in a live situation, no amp tweaking etc just swapping the guitar and going with it. It was a Coro with the Black pickups (I personally prefer he sound of the original silver ones.)
