1967 Fender Coronado Electric Bass II , Serial #203990

This bass had a gorgeous sound - very full.  Did not feedback at high volumes.  One of the best sounding hollow-bodied basses I had ever played.  All original, Fender stock tuning gears, 1 tuning nob top had been replaced, there was a patch of the finish missing on the back, nice action, pearl inlay.  The "F" on the bridge tail was missing, so it was painted in with silver paint.
