In mid 1967 the Fender Bronco was introduced to the market as a student guitar. It had been worked on since 1964 and then
produced in mid 1967. It was originally supposed to replace the Musicmaster, but as we know the Musicmaster continued to be
in the line of Fender guitars. The difference between the two was that the pickup was placed in the bridge position of the
Bronco, unlike its relative. A similar colour to the popular Fiesta Red was given to the guitar, likely attractive to many
aspiring musicians. Unfortunately 1981 was the last year of the Bronco. These guitars can be picked up at affordable
prices. One thing about them is that people liked them as guitars, but were limited by the single pickup design.
Thus many Bronco's were modified with additonal pickups, new tuning pegs, etc.
