Epiphone Coronet USA
Words by Mixdown staff

The new Epiphone USA Coronet pays homage to one of the most famous Epiphone shapes, used by countless artists on generations of stages.

First introduced in 1958, the Epiphone Coronet is one of Epiphone’s first and most successful original solid body electric guitar designs, and now it has come home to the USA! The latest Coronet is once again made in the USA and features the same symmetrical double cutaway mahogany body shape, three-on-a-side headstock shape, “Bikini” headstock badge, and pickguard shape as the earliest versions from 1958-1959.

Made in the USA, double cutaway mahogany body, “Bikini” headstock badge, SlimTaper mahogany neck, three on a side headstock, P-90 Soapbar pickup. Controlled by simple tone and volume knobs, the single P90 pickup offers everything you need.

The modern improvements include a slightly wider (1.695”) nut width and a comfortable SlimTaper™ neck profile, a slightly slimmer (1.375″) body depth for better balance and lighter weight, a Graph Tech® nut, and a single P-90 Soapbar pickup. Original USA-made Coronets have been played by everyone from Jimi Hendrix and Steve Marriott to Johnny Marr and Marshall Crenshaw. Now, you can discover the magic of this no-frills rock machine for yourself. A hard-shell case is included.
