I have always loved the Epiphone Wilshire and Coronet guitars, the way they sound, play and feel. In my opinion they are Epiphones version of the SG and the Stratocaster combined. After seeing how Epiphone has put beautiful maple tops on SGs and Les Paul's, I thought to my self what would I like to see Epiphone do to a Coronet so that it would have everything that I wanted in it? So I came up with this idea, take a Coronet and modify it so that it has a veneer top, no pick guard, controls mounted through the rear, Floyd Rose locking tremolo, MOP block inlays, corner input jack and a selector switch located in the lower front horn like a Wilshire. It has a DiMarzio X2N pickup in the bridge position and a DiMarzio Fast track II humbucker in the neck position. It is set up for 1 volume 1 tone with push pull pots for coil splitting and out of phase. The micro switch puts both pickups in series and there is a kill switch. I built this to play 80s metal but with the variety of tones that it gets you could play anything. How would you build yours????
