I took a few guitar lessons back in 1978 and my parents bought me a new, black Fender Bronco. I lost interest in guitar and the Bronco was sold a few years later.

My dad and I were discussing that old guitar this weekend and we disagreed on the 1978 price he paid. My memory is that it was $300+....maybe closer to $400. He remembers paying something like $130, which I find hard to believe.

Does anyone know the pricing or know a resource like old catalogs that might list the price?

I have a original 1976 CBS/ Fender Catalog
Bronco list price was $325

So you where right and IMO price may be same in 1978

Wow... Looking at the '78 vs '79 Strat, $100 difference for maple neck with HSC $685 to $790
