FENDER TORONADO DELUXE MIM 1998 Atomic Humbuckers Offset Body MIM Black 32430


Regular price $750

Fender Toronado in black. Great guitar. These are becoming rare. 

Description
You're looking at a 2008 Fender Toronado in black with tortoise shell pickguard  This is the earlier cooler looking Toro with the dual Atomic Humbucker pickups. This is a chance to get a discontinued and now rare guitar. These are such cool looking guitars with the offset body and large tortoise shell pickguard. Body contour on back and rare Gibson scale length of 24.75 inches. This one is all stock except for the upgraded Ping tuners. Some minor edge marks (see pics) but overall 8/10. Frets are 90% with mild flattening at the cowboy chord area. No case. Weight is 7 pounds, 15 ounces. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.)  I may end auction early if it sells elsewhere. Thanks for looking!

Manufacturer Info
The Fender Toronado was an electric guitar made by Fender Musical Instruments Corporation. Introduced at NAMM in 1998, it is a part of the "Deluxe Series" of Fenders produced in Mexico, generally to higher specs than most "Standard" models. The Toronado features two Fender Atomic humbucking pickups, a rosewood fretboard, and four chrome knobs (2 volume and 2 tone). Many models also include a tortoise-shell pickguard. The headstock features the Fender "spaghetti" logo and sports vintage style Gotoh/Kluson tuners. The body shape shadows the designs of Fender's Jazzmaster and Jaguar guitars. The Toronado also has a 24.75" scale length—an unusual feature on a Fender guitar, as this scale length is usually associated with electric guitars manufactured by Gibson.

-- Full setup, cleaning, and new strings.
-- FREE USA shipping.
-- 30-day return policy.
-- Ship within 1 business day--pro packing.

Guitar Setup
All our setups are done by our in-house luthier. Setup includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. We spray out any pots that are noisy, turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!
 
Packing
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 11 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar. Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" and you will find it. Thanks.
