1966 Epiphone “Dwight” Coronet Cherry

Up for sale, an incredible and original vintage 1966 Epiphone “Dwight” Coronet in Cherry finish. The Gibson-made Epiphone Coronet guitar started out as an alternative to the Gibson Les Paul Junior, from 1959 – 1970. Early in the ’60s the “Dwight model” was made by Gibson for Sonny Shields Music in East Saint Louis, IL, a store which was owned by Charles “Dwight” Shields. This 1966 is among the second version featuring the classic Epiphone “batwing” headstock with “Dwight model” on the truss rod cover, nickel plated P-90 pickup cover and Maestro Vibrola with flat tremolo arm.

6.4 Lbs, Lightweight and balanced. We can send more photos, audios and videos upon request.

Mahogany body and neck with Rosewood fingerboard. All original hardware including P-90 pickup and wiring (pots dates 7th week of ’66), knobs, bridge with Maestro vibrola, tuners, nut and 3-ply white pickguard.

The guitar is all original with the exception of just the hard case, which is from a 1960’s Danelectro guitar and it really blends with the vibe. Aesthetically, the guitar has moderate wear due to almost six decades of age. There’re some little marks and scratches, buckle rush and normal patina. The pickguard has a fixed crack on the upper horn tip and there’s a little missing corner over the lower horn. Other than that the guitar is in great condition overall, fully functional and sounding amazing without any issues.

The neck is straight and truss rod works fine, allowing a low action without any fret issues. Frets have little wear really. It’s just been set with a fresh set of D’addario nickel and it’s a really fun to play guitar.

It will be professionally packed, insured and shipped out to Continental US only. Local Pickup in LA is also welcome at no cost.
