Exclusive for Japan! Featuring Gibson USA pickups.
Epiphone welcomes Japan’s premier guitarist, singer, songwriter, and producer Tamio Okuda to the House of Stathopoulo with the new Ltd. Ed. Tamio Okuda Elitist Coronet™ Custom Outfit, available exclusively in Japan. Featuring two Gibson USA P-90 pickups and the historic Epiphone Coronet™ profile with a beautiful vintage style Silver Fox™ Nitrocellulose Lacquer finish. Tamio Okuda is ranked among the top artists in Japan and fittingly, Tamio chose the classic Epiphone Elitist Coronet as his debut signature model and customized it with two Gibson USA P-90 pickups to be the first Epiphone Coronet with two pickups in a stunning Silver Fox™ finish!
The original Epiphone Coronet was one of the first solidbody guitars made at Epiphone in the late 50s after merging with Gibson and moving to the legendary factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan. The vintage Epiphone Coronet was made at the same time as the ES-335 and the Les Paul Standard, and has since become a Rock & Roll classic all its own. Epiphone Elitist instruments have a worldwide reputation as some of the finest vintage reproduction guitars ever made with exacting standards to finish, electronics, neck profile, and most of all, sound. Working with Epiphone’s famed luthiers in Nashville, Tamio Okuda customized his debut signature Coronet to fit his incredible style. Now, the new Ltd. Ed. Tamio Okuda Elitist Coronet Custom Outfit features a rare Silver Fox™ Nitrocellulose Lacquer finish and not one but two
classic Gibson P-90 pickups—one “Dogear” P-90 single coil pickup like the traditional Coronet plus
a “Soapbar” P-90 for a truly signature instrument that ranks with the most beautiful Epiphones ever made from any era!
Like all Epiphones, the Ltd. Ed. Tamio Okuda Elitist Coronet™ Custom Outfit with a Silver Fox™ Nitrocellulose Lacquer finish comes with Epiphone’s Limited Lifetime Warranty and world famous Gibson Customer Service available 365/24/7.
