Your satisfaction is my priority! That is why I offer you a full, 3-day, money-back guarantee.

The Coquette features a neck-through body design with a hard maple neck and soft maple body wings.


The fingerboard is radiused to a comfortable 9.5″ and is carefully fitted with medium-jumbo frets, highly polished to provide a fast playing response.


The Coquette comes standard with a pair of Nelson “Dynamo” pickups. These pickups have been specially designed to produce a fully balanced sound with rich, tight bass and clear, pronounced treble. The pickups are wax potted so undesirable microphonics are eliminated. The anodized aluminum pickguard affords greater wear resistance and beauty, while blocking unwanted magnetic interference which causes hum.


The Coquette is finished in a beautiful satin finish. Many colors are available; please inquire with your color request.
