This is a vintage 1960 Epiphone Coronet electric guitar. This particular example, serial number 0 6549, is in very good all original condition! This early-variety Coronet is more similar to it’s Gibson counterpart, the Les Paul Junior, than those made after 1963 with an asymmetrical body design and the later “Bat Wing” headstock. Identical to the “Dwight” played by Steve Marriott of Humble Pie, this rare version was only produced for approximately a single year, and it features; a symmetrical 3-on-a-side “open book” headstock profile, an inked on serial number, a single high output P-90 pickup, a single-ply early New York style pick guard, and an early New York style “Bikini” badge headstock emblem.
As mentioned, this ’60 Epiphone Coronet is in very nice all original condition, and features: a non-slab contoured mahogany body, a rich Cherry Red finish, a Mahogany neck with a Brazilian rosewood fingerboard, an “open-book” headstock profile, the original P-90 pickup (8.19Ω) with the original dog-ear plastic cover, the original light-weight wrap-around tailpiece, the original single-ply non-e logo pickguard, (2) original black silver-insert reflector knobs, the original single-line Kluson Deluxe tuning machines, 1 11/16″ nut width and all original hardware. It weighs 5 lbs. 12 oz.
This guitar sounds absolutely remarkable. Easily better sounding than any Les Paul Jr. I’ve owned in recent history, this guitar screams. It’s extremely light weight and super resonant. With no breaks and no cracks, this guitar remains in perfect structural condition.
