Fender Coronado I Sunburst 1967

Designed by Roger Rossmeisl who came onto Fender after the CBS buyout, the Coronado series was Fender's first attempt to get into the hollowbody market dominated by Gibson, Gretsch, and other makers. The Coronado was available in a few different configurations, and the Coronado I just one single-coil pickups built by DeArmond and dot inlays on an unbound neck.
