someone is selling it on craigslist but they don't offer the model, any help would be appreicated...
Didn't you notice the "E" for Epiphone?
Looks early 70's to me.
Epiphone is the make, as for model, I cant help you. I would speculate it is a muddy sounding beast.
lol, i know it's an epiphone, that's the make. i was looking for the model so i could do some research on it.
thanks anyway though.
man I hate caps
my gf has that bass only it's natural and I've never found anything on it either.
It'll be interesting to find out though!
HA! Yep, definitely a 70's model. Played a red one of those my freshman year of high school. The tone was muddy as a crawfish pond...
It looks like it might be the Newport series. From 1961-1968 they were made in the USA. Then from 1977-1979 they were made in Japan.
USA ones are worth about $1,000 near-mint. Japanese ones are about $350 near-mint.
I wanna say that model is called the Coronet. Could be wrong, though.
I used to have one of those and the tone ruled but the neck gave me hand cramps.
I can't remember the name of that model though.
Might be a Newport.
You are right, I think. Epiphone Coronet, MIJ about 1975.
EDIT: Coronet was the American model name. As MIJ, it was apparently called ET-285. Here is a link to the 1974 Epiphone catalog (scroll down): http://www.matsumoku.org/models/epiphone/catalogs/1974/pg5.html
