VINTAGE 1959 EPIPHONE CORONET GUITAR PLAYS AWESOME
This guitar is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-10-02)
Price : US $5,700.
Up for auction is a rare Epiphone Coronet guitar, in original black paint, circa 1959, in excellent playing condition. Original New Yorker pickup and electronics, original tuners, truss-rod cover, caroussel knobs.
Unfortunately the aluminum t-shaped piece with the Epiphone logo is missing from the headstock; they were originally held in place with three small nails.
The pickguard appears too new to be original, and the bridge is probably a newer one. The original frets still have lots of life in them; the neck is nice and straight. This is the most collectible of the Coronet
solidbody guitars, with the thick body and three-a-side tuners. Later models had 6-in-line tuners and thinner bodies with a P-90 pickup. I've looked all over and couldn't find another being
offered, except for a classified ad in Premier Guitar magazine where they were asking $15K for a 1959 Coronet.
Buyer pays $45.00 for insured shipping to the lower 48. Cashiers check or money order preferred, PayPal accepted but email me first. ALL SALES ARE FINAL!
