Fender Wildwood III, 1960s

The Fender Wildwood Guitar is a bit of an enigma, the Wildwood name was given to a line of acoustic and semiacoustic guitars that had been equipped with a similar neck and headstock as the electric counterpart. The Fender Wildwood Kingman acoustic, and Coronado Guitar all had the neck and headstock in common. And looked like a hybrid between a Coronado or Kingman with a Strat neck. A notable player of the wild wood acoustic was Elvis Presley who appeared in various guises with a Wildwood VI. It seems these we were made in the Fullerton plant in the 1960s however, these are not common.  This guitar appears have a fitted bridge doctor as the high  string tension often caused the top to deflect and fail.
