The Epiphone Coronet is a vintage classic, adored by collectors for its stripped down yet elegant design. First introduced in 1959 and regarded as one of Epiphone's first solid-body electric guitars, the bang-for-your-buck brand has now brought this iconic model back to life with many of the original traits intact - namely the symmetrical, double-cut body shape.
Key features include a punchy Epiphone P-90 PRO Dogear pickup, CTS pots, a high-quality Graph Tech NuBone nut and a reduced-size Kalamazoo headstock with striking "Bikini" badge detail.
Boasting an all-Mahogany construction, the Epiphone Coronet projects a potent voice that's rich in lows and sizzling with mid-range, while the traditional glued-in neck joint guarantees long, piano-like sustain. The medium "C"-shaped Mahogany neck is comfortable for contemporary and old-school players alike, with a smooth Indian Laurel fingerboard and 22 'Medium Jumbo' frets offering a controllable feel under the fingers.
Epiphone P-90 PRO Dogear Pickup
The Epiphone Coronet is instantly recognisable for its single P-90 pickup. While simple and perhaps lacking in versatility, the proprietary Epiphone PRO P-90 Dogear pickup fitted in this new Coronet has a spellbinding sound that's perfect for punk, classic rock and even blues styles. Delivering plenty of mid-range aggression and a subtly-compressed character like all good P-90s should - this pickup is pure rock n' roll!
Genuine CTS Pots
Master volume and tone controls make on-the-fly sonic adjustments easy, and allow you to attain a wide range of sounds even from the lone pickup. The potentiometers are made by industry-leading electronics company CTS to ensure a lifetime of reliable use. They'll never let you down onstage!
Epiphone could have easily fitted its reimagined Coronet with modern appointments, but they wanted to retain the spirit of the original by installing vintage-style hardware; for that truly nostalgic look. Sporting a "Lightning Bar" compensated wraparound bridge, ivory-button tuning machines and a white butterfly pickguard with foil "E" logo - this 21st Century Coronet doesn't forget any of its essential late '50s roots.
