There is a vibrato on ebay now, unfortunately bids only - no affiliation

Yeah,

I have my eye on the vibrato. The Same seller (The Jersey Butcher) is selling a bridge and pickguard too.

I hope you get them all. That’s going to be gorgeous!

So close to getting everything needed. I won the vibrato and pickguard off of ebay but wasn't able to get the bridge. So if anyone sees a bridge or has one for sale please shoot me a DM.

I think since the bridges aren't connected to the bodies, they always get lost - hence the high prices!!

There are lots of cheap archtop bridges out there that you can use while you search - and play the guitar in the meantime!

I’m not ok with this. Just two pictures? No, I need more.

oops. There weren't many Coro fans who saw this thread!
Yes, herringbone inlay Coros are early ones from 65-67.
I'm sure that bridge is adequate, but isn't it a bit flat for the 7.25" radius of the fretboard?
I may have an extra bridge. Or you can tear apart a cheap mustang bridge.
Play on!!!!!!

The bridge is not the correct radius but it actually works pretty good. I have the action pretty low without any buzz. I'm still on the hunt for a vintage correct one but I'm pretty happy with it as is until I can find a good vintage replacment. Sadly I saw one on reverb a few weeks ago but money was a little tight and it sold right away.

Cool! I'm just refurbing a red one for a pal. Is your pickguard kind-of goldie or off-white?
Thanks in advance.

This makes me regret selling my wildwood coronado :( Although I really didn't bond with it - it sure was a very pretty guitar.
