FENDER TORONADO DELUXE White / Creme Atomic Humbuckers Offset Body MIM 26495


Regular price $899

Description
You're looking at a 2008 Fender Toronado in creme finish with offset body and large tortoise shell pickguard. I believe it may have started out white, but has faded to this really cool vintage looking creme. Discontinued and rare, this is the earlier (and cooler looking) Toro with the dual Atomic Humbucker pickups. All electronics sound great, and the guitar plays and sounds amazing. Body contour on back and rare Gibson scale length of 24.75 inches. Cosmetically it has a few very small marks. It's 9/10, very clean. Frets have some mild uniform flattening. No case. Weight is 8 pounds, 4 ounces. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking!


TONE
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.

-- FREE USA shipping.
-- 30-day return policy.

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.

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.
