Post Ibanez Epiphone Coronet question
I know that this topic has already been brought up, but I have a question in regards to my Coronet.

All of the pictures that I have seen of the Coronet have a Fender style straight 6 (6 tuners) head stock. My Epiphone has a 3/3 (tuner style) headstock. What does this mean? Is this an original Epiphone or is this just a Coronet that was made available with a different headstock for a stylistic choice?

I bought the guitar used, it has an old style tremolo on it very similar to all the Gibson top mounted tremolo's made available on the Gibson ES series, It's black with a white pick guard that has the Epiphone E on the pick guard.

Similar to the one on the left, it has 2 humbuckers and a selector switch in the bottom horn

Thanks.

I think your Coronet is an older model from 1958 or 1959......the Coronet with the batwing headstock was built in 1963.....

check out www.provide.net/~cfh/epiphon2.html#coronet for more information....

It looks like a Wilshire with Polaris hardware and the Polaris tremolo system...

Black with the E logo in the middle. So it's probably a custom job dealy. Too cool.

Man, that's interesting. Thanks for the page.
