In the period roughly between 19, several craftsmen and companies experimented with solid-body electric guitars, but none had made a significant impact on the market.Leo Fender's Telecaster was the design that made bolt-on neck, solid body guitars viable in the marketplace.The Fender Coronado is a double-cutaway thin-line hollow-body electric guitar, announced in 1965, it is manufactured by Fender Musical Instruments Corporation.The aesthetic design embodied in the Coronado represents a departure from previous Fender instruments; the design remains an uncharacteristic piece of Fender history.The very un-Fender like instrument was designed by Roger Rossmeisl (who had previously also designed instruments for Rickenbacker, but who went on to create numerous models for Fender) in an attempt to capitalise on the increasing popularity of semi-acoustic guitars following the high-profile use of hollow-bodied instruments, such as the Epiphone Casino by bands like The Beatles.During Rossmeisl's time designing for Fender he also designed the Fender Montego, a "jazz box" style guitar which shares the Coronado's fixed F tailpiece; and the 1967 Fender Wildwood which shares the Stratocaster headstock.All Telecaster bodies of this particular series were routed for a humbucker pickup in the neck position.There were two options of the pickup configuration: Either a "Fat Tele" pickup arrangement with a Fender USA humbucker neck pickup and a bridge pickup or a Stratocaster single coil pickup in the neck position combined with a single coil bridge pickup.
That hand-built prototype, an anonymous white guitar, had most of the features of what would become the Telecaster.

For example, Bass Player Magazine notes that the Jaguar Bass can "[deliver] a convincing P-Bass sound ripe for Motown fingerstyle." Differences in models include: Fender Japan: first generation: 2006–2010. In 1960, Fender introduced the Jazz Bass, which was originally known as the "Deluxe Model" (in relation to the previously released Precision Bass).
The California Series Telecaster model also features vintage hardware such as Kluson-style tuners and a vintage bridge with six individual steel saddles.
Medium jumbo frets make string bending and playability by far easier in contrast to the usual thin vintage frets.
