Epiphone / Coronet / 1961 / Cherry / Guitar
First designed in 1959, the Coronet was Epiphone's take on the Les Paul Junior:
it shared its simple slab mahogany body, single P-90 and great sound.
But like some of Epiphone's models at the time, it looked strikingly different than its older sibling,
some might even say it was a lot cooler!
It has become a long time favourite amongst Rock'n'Roll bands
and has been used by Steve Marriott, Paul Weller, The Hives and Ace Frehley.
With its classic symmetrical slim curved body and faded Cherry finish,
this Coronet is a great example of this classic instrument.
A great and simple guitar for Blues and Rock'n'Roll.
