1962 Epiphone Coronet


Located in Seattle


Absolutely stunning 1962 Epiphone Coronet in its original and vibrant cherry finish. I love these Kalamazoo, MI built Coronets as they are essentially the Epiphone LP or SG Junior, and in some ways a little cooler. This example is one of the nicest we’ve seen still retaining a large amount of its original and un-faded cherry finish and retaining all its original parts. Nice and comfy neck with the desirable 1 11/16th nut width. Overall in excellent condition less some faint finish wear, small pickguard cracks, and spots of finish checking. There is a spot of finish checking on the back of the neck, it is nothing more than checking and is not a break or repair. The buttons on the treble side of the tuners have been replaced. Original tuners are back on, but there are additional screw holes on the back of the headstock. Overall a wonderful and clean example! Pro setup in house and comes complete with its original hardshell case.
