Not much to say about these: they don't come up for sale often. They were made to promote Fender's taking over Guild, and they were built in the Fender Custom Shop. At least a couple went to Steve Marker of Garbage, and he's playing an identical one the last year or so.

Condition is excellent, though it's pretty hard to find a mark against all that sparkle. Frets are great, neck straight, electronics are fine. Two issues:

1) The strap buttons for some reason have gone all corroded. Weird, and it's hard to find replacements

2) The neck pickup ring cracked. One day I opened the case and there it was. I have to held together with a dab of clear glue. Hard to find a replacement, but who knows?

Sound is astonishing. I've also owned a Westerly Bluesbird and another Corona, and this one has something magical. It sounds huge.

No offers or messing around, please. If it doesn't sell I'm quite happy to be buried with it, as I'll never find another. But I seldom play it, so it's kind of art now, and if someone would love it more than me, they can buy it. Thanks for looking!
