Guitarist Vigilante Carlstroem Of The Hives With His Vintage Epiphone Coronet

The Hives wowed an intimate crowd at the Gibson Showroom in Seattle recently when they performed for a group of radio winners from local station 107.7 The End. The band just kicked off their U.S. tour in support of their new record, Lex Hives, and guitarist Vigilante Carlstroem broke out a vintage 1959 Epiphone Coronet as a special treat for the 107.7 fans.
