Full Color Sound - Fender advertisement (1967)

Fender Coronado, Fender Jazz bass, Fender Solid-State Twin Reverb amplifier, Fender Wildwood acoustic

Fender advertisement (1967) Full Color Sound

Advert for the Fender display at the June 1967 NAMM show in Chicago, USA. It features a number of instruments 'representing the complete musical spectrum': a Jazz Bass, a Coronado II electric acoustic, the Wildwood acoustic (with stained grain back and sides) and finally the Solid-State Twin/Reverb Amplifier.

The Coronado and Wildwood acoustics were fairly new models, although they had been around long enough to be included in the 1966 Fender catalogue. The Solid State amplifier range was brand new though, and had not been included in Fender catalogues to date. Note the very early tailpiece design of the Fender Coronado; this was only fitted to the very earliest examples used for promotional purposes, and was not generally fitted to production guitars.
