Johnny Marr talks about his 1962 Epiphone Coronet on [this page](http://www.johnny-marr.com/guitarchestra-2/1962-epiphone-coronet) of his website. He says, "This is a 1962 Epiphone Coronet. Shortly after I got it I put it in “Nashville Tuning”, which means putting on an electric 12 string set (the bottom four strings are an octave higher than standard). It feels like your playing backwards because the higher strings are at the bottom. I used it to double a lot of the Rickenbacker arpeggios on Smiths records, most notably on “William It Was Really Nothing”, it’s also the main guitar on “Half A Person”."more
Pete Doherty can be seen playing a vintage cherry red finish Epiphone Coronet Electric Guitar in this photo. He has played it with several of his bands, including Libertines and Babyshambles. It most closely matches a 1960s model, with a single P-90 pickup in the bridge position. There was a brief run of Korean-made 1990s Coronets which have a single coil pickup in the neck position, thus excluding that as a possibility for the one Pete Doherty plays. In terms of the headstock, the original and 90s reissued Coronets varied in terms of headstock style - some had six tuners all on one side, while others had 3-per-side Gibson-style headstocks. Doherty's particular Coronet has the former.more
Ricky playing Rock Lobster in 1985 in Rio on an Epiphone Coronet, which replaced the blue Mosrite Mark V by this point as the main CFxxFF guitar for this song. Ricky must have picked this up sometime after 1980 because previous reports are actually just the ET-290 being blanked out by stage-lighting in the video. It likely had a very short run in the band because it was amongst some of the last guitars that gigged with Ricky before he passed.more
