1963 Epiphone Coronet Silver Fox

It's hard to beat a hot Gibson P-90, a wrap tail and a slab of Mahogany.  1963 was the first year of the batwing headstock and the custom color they called Silver Fox.  The early 60s saw many funky new designs including the Fender Jaguar, Gibson SG and endless Chicago made cheapies branded Kay, Harmony and Silvertone.  This guitar is light, super resonant and the P-90 just screamed.  The neck was actually 1 9/16" wide which was odd for Gibson pre-1965.  This bare bones rock machine paired with a tweed Fender Deluxe was more than enough to get an acoustic, folky type to play some of those classic rock licks.  

Do you have one of these that you would like to sell?  I'm looking for another.  Please email me about what you have for sale.
