Epiphone Coronet (USA Collection) - Vintage Cherry with Hard Shell Case

Epiphone Coronet USA Collection: A Rock 'n' Roll Icon Reborn

The Epiphone Coronet, a cornerstone of Epiphone's original solid body electric guitar lineup since 1958, makes a triumphant return, now crafted with pride in the USA. This reissue remains true to its roots with the iconic symmetrical double cutaway mahogany body, the classic three-on-a-side headstock, and the distinctive "Bikini" badge reminiscent of the early 1958-1959 models. Accompanied by a modern twist to its traditional design, the latest Coronet offers enhanced playability and comfort, perfect for today's musician.

Classic Design with Modern Enhancements

The Epiphone Coronet reissue not only preserves the aesthetic and tonal characteristics that made the original a beloved fixture in the music world but also introduces several contemporary improvements. It features a slightly wider nut width of 1.69 inches for a more comfortable grip and a Slim Taper neck profile that suits a variety of playing styles. The body's depth has been reduced to 1.375 inches, lightening the overall weight and improving the guitar's ergonomic balance.

Premium Build and Specifications

The body and neck of the Coronet are crafted from high-quality mahogany, known for its rich resonance and warm tone. It sports an Indian Rosewood fingerboard with 22 frets, marked by classic acrylic dot inlays. The nut is made from Graph Tech material, ensuring durability and enhanced tuning stability. This model's hardware includes a reliable wraparound bridge, Vintage Deluxe tuners with white buttons, and a nickel plating that adds a touch of vintage charm.

Powerful Electronics and Simplified Controls

At the heart of its electronics, the Coronet is equipped with a single P-90 Soapbar pickup, renowned for its raw power and versatility. This pickup delivers everything from crisp, detailed cleans to rich, gritty overdrive. Control is straightforward yet effective, with a master volume and a master tone knob, each hand-wired with an Orange Drop capacitor to preserve the classic nuances of the original design.
