FENDER TORONADO DELUXE MIM 2003 Atomic Humbuckers Offset Body MIM Black 55397
You're looking at a 2003 Fender Toronado in black with offset body and large tortoise shell pickguard, maple neck with rosewood fretboard. Discontinued and rare, this is the earlier (and cooler looking) Toro with the dual Atomic Humbucker pickups. All electronics work great, and cosmetically it is a very clean one. Body contour on back and rare Gibson scale length of 24.75 inches. All stock condition.
Cosmetically, beyond scuffing and a couple minor marks, it's super clean (see pics). Frets are in great condition. Very rare to find one of these in this kind of condition. No case. Weight is 8 pounds, 6 ounces. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking!
These Toro's have two Fender Atomic humbuckers. They give you a nice thick sound. But they still maintain some clarity. So while a true humbucker sound, they are not simply a "wall of noise" type pickup. You can capture a lot of different sounds blending the two pickups or backing off slightly on your volume knob.

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.
