Stunning example and previous poster boy of a recent Guitarist magazine feature this first year, first edition, Gibson made Epiphone Coronet is a real beaut and a blinder to play...

Sorry, this item was sold out.

If you think your Les Paul Junior is cool then sorry, afraid it is not as cool as this.

This is a rare 1959 Epiphone Coronet finished in factory original black with an amazing V neck in all original and fine condition. this very same guitar was even the poster boy of a recent Guitarist Magazine card set and and vintage guitar feature that appeared in the magazine a couple of months back we are including a copy of this in with the sale (see pictures).

Insanely gorgeous and a real stunner to play and look at (check those knobs out…) this 1959 Epiphone is totally original with no touch ups, no overspray or breaks or repairs anywhere. All solder is undisturbed and intact and all hardware is totally correct.

Pickup is an original New York and has enough grunt and bite to satisfy most. When you combine it with some classic distortion it can really be a force to be reckoned with. As a direct comparison to the 1959/60 TV Junior we have here, it is a slightly lower output but it is clearer, with more finesse. Whereas the LP Junior is a blunt instrument of force, this is in its own way a veritable powerhouse, but just has some added clarity.

Come down to our showroom and compare them both - our full Marshall stack lies in want…

It is a really cool player, original frets are in good shape with just a little wear on the lower reaches but far from needing a refret. Neck is a chunky-ish V shape profile that is quite unique to this guitar and suits it down to the ground. Body is a lovely thick, slab design that again is totally unique.

If you are into your Juniors and need something that will stand out from the crowd then this classic, first year Coronet will surely not disappoint and is one guitar that will fit in perfectly to your Junior collection..
