Fender Wildwood

Acoustic guitar

Fender's Wildwood acoustics, along with the Wildwood Coronado were first produced in time for the 1966 Fender catalogue. The Wildwood acoustics were rather similar to the Kingman acoustic, but with a stained Beech back and sides, and unstained Spruce top. Colours initially available were: Wildwood Green, Wildwood Gold and Brown, Wildwood Gold and Purple, Wildwood Dark Blue, Wildwood Purple Blue and Wildwood Blue Green.

The Wildwood acoustic remained in Fender price lists for just three years, 1966-69. In July 1966, the list price for the Wildwood acoustic was $385.
