They were supposed to make a '64 Coronet reissue a couple years back but scrapped it.

Hopefully ain't more than £400.

Me too.

The guy complaining it looks too '50s though. That's the point!!

I wanted one like 10 years ago. I owned a 66 Wilshire reissue and came to a conclusion that I don't want a Coronet or any other guitar with a set neck anymore. If they had made it 8 years ago, I would've bought one. I'd buy a nice tele or a strat instead now.

Also modern Epiphone necks are thin, wide, balls sucking nuisances. Original pre 64 Coronets had fat C necks from what know, later batwing headstock Coronets/Wilshires/Crestwoods had thinner necks but nowhere as thin as was on my Wilshire. I contacted a guy long time ago who owned both and he said a reissue Wilshire neck was much thinner and much more uncomfortable to play than the original one.

If Epiphone puts a Slimtaper neck on a pre 64 Coronet it'll just adds bonus points to the first place it holds in my personal book in the category "Unplayable garbage that looks kinda beautiful"

Yeah, a skinny neck would kill my love of them too.

What’s wrong with a set neck?

The glue kills the tone. Everyone knows that.

It kills all the benefits of the toanwood


I don't know, I grew more negligent with the way I handle my guitars and also paranoid that I would break a $400 piece of glued together toanwood that after that would have a reselling value of firewood.

Only if you put the glue on your fingers.

Butter or nothing. How would it play like butter if you didn't put butter on your fingers?
