Fender Redondo vintage acoustic from 1966
Over the past 20 odd years various guitar manufacturers have come up with the idea of an acoustic with a slimmer electric style neck so as to appeal to the electric player. This idea, although presented as an amazing breakthrough each time it is brought up, is nothing new as this Fender Redondo acoustic from 1966 illustrates quite nicely. In true Fender-fashion, it even has a bolt-on neck. (The first bolt-on neck acoustic that I personally was aware of was the Eko Ranger). The 6-tuners-in-a-line headstock, although looking quite conspicuous on an acoustic, is more gently rounded than the more usual Strat style and is quite a pleasing shape.

  1. I have one of these guitars & I am interested in finding out what it's worth. It is from 1966,... just as yours is But all info on Redondo models say they were intro'ed in '69. Can you tell me more or direct me to someone who can? Thank you in advance for any help you may provide.
