Fender Coronado / Antigua II

1970 Fender guitar and bass catalogue - page 13

Fender 1970 guitar and bass catalogue. Page 13. Details of the Fender Coronado /Antigua II guitar. The Coronado was Fender's attempt to break into the 335-style thinline market; throughout the late 1960s it was available in a wide range of finishes, with optional hardware, though by 1970, this had been reduced to just the two-pickup version with tremolo and antique-style Antigua finish. The name Coronado, despite still appearing on the headstock, was dropped from Fender publicity material, in favour, simply of Antigua II. Compare this page with the Coronado page of the 1968 Fender catalogue. By the time of the next Fender full-line catalogue (the 1972) the Antigua II guitar was gone (despite appearing in price lists for 1972). This was the last print appearance of the Antigua II, though the Antigua finish itself would soon find it's way on to a whole range of other 70s Fender guitars and basses.

In April 1970, the Antigua II was priced at $469.50 for a right-handed model, and $515 for a left-handed model
