Epiphone Coronet - Cherry - Electric Guitar

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.

Rock-Solid Construction

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!

Vintage-Style Hardware

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.
