All original time capsule from 1963 - the Epiphone Coronet. This guitar was built in the Kalamazoo, Michigan factory as an answer to the Gibson Les Paul Jr. Vintage appeal and simplicity combined with fantastic playability as well as an ultra-lightweight body... this is a player's guitar just as much as it is a relic!
For an instrument of this age this guitar is in FANTASTIC shape. With only light dings, marks, and checking throughout, and a small chip in the pickguard, the Coronet plays like a dream. Furthermore, the resonance and sustain is out of this world. This is the real deal, real aging, real mojo.
The next generation of the Coronet in late 1960 switched pickups to a classic Kalamazoo-made P-90 (the model for Epiphone P-90s found on today’s Epi archtops like the Casino), and a slightly thinner body. In 1963, the lower horn of the guitar became shorter and the headstock switched to 6-on-a-side ‘batwing’ style and did away with the pronounced Epiphone scrolled logo that would grace Epiphone headstocks through the mid '60s. During these early transitional years, KlusonTM tuners with white buttons became standard along with more rounded edges, a gold foil ‘E’ (one of our favorite touches), Gibson style knobs (as seen on Les Paul Jr.’s), a wrap around tailpiece with pre-compensated non-adjustable saddles, and different finishes including Cherry and Green Silver Fox.
