Epiphone Sheraton LH - Ref 178

Epiphone Sheraton Left Handed Electric Guitar 1995 Korean

Epiphone Sheraton
Left Handed Semi Acoustic Guitar
Circa - 1995 -
With Hardcase

This is the real deal when it comes to guitars,
an Epiphone Sheraton, aged and played in . . .

 Built in 1995 (the so called "Golden Era" of Epiphone's,) serial number S5086306, Samick Plant, Korea.

Guitars from this time and factory are
well known for their high quality and finish.

Please do not mistake this for the new
lesser quality Chinese models.

Built in 1995, this guitar's wood has 17 years of ageing
and now has a sound that literally cannot be replicated.

...thin line hollow maple body with a tobacco burst finish,
that looks absolutely stunning against the gold hardware
that has worn in all the right places and has given it
that lovely naturally aged patina, including gotoh style machine heads and a body binding
that's taken on a lovely buttery colour with age...

This is a gorgeous guitar!

The solid maple block in the centre of the body
minimizes feedback, while the hollow body wings
gives sustain, tone and weight.
Two Epiphone alnico classic humbuckers
authentic vintage tone, combined with the aged wood
the guitar sounds really, really beautiful.

The neck is a very comfortable 5 piece walnut
and maple neck, it is a dream to play!

In preparation for sale the guitar has
received the following:-

- Frets polished
- Fretboard cleaned, lemon oiled and conditioned
- Restrung on 30/11/2012 with 10 gauge strings
- String height set at 2.4mm at 17th fret, Bass side
- 2mm at 17th fret, Treble side
- Correct saddle height adjustment
- Correct neck relief adjustment
- all electrics checked
- all hardware including screws have been removed,
cleaned, lightly oiled and reassembled

- Full body and neck cleaned and polished

Overall condition is very good for a 17 year old used guitar.
It would stand up extremely well against any other guitar of this age. Very rarely do I ever see Left Handed Epiphone Sheraton's in this condition, and I mean very rarely.
General playing wear to be expected but nothing that
detracts from the overall appearance and sound of the guitar.

The hardcase is included with the guitar with all latches working and normal signs of use. It will offer adequate protection whilst the guitar is in transit
and adds to the vintage vibe.

If there is anything I have missed picture wise,
please let me know and I will do my best
to add it to the listing.

You will not be disappointed with this guitar !!

Any other questions regarding the guitar,
