Ephiphone Sheraton TSB 89 - Ref 243 - SOLD

Epiphone Sheraton 1989
Tobacco Burst Hardcase

Epiphone Sheraton
Semi Acoustic Guitar
Circa - 1989 -
With Hardcase

This is the real deal when it comes to guitars,
an Epiphone Sheraton, aged and played in . . .
Built in 1989 (making this guitar, now officially vintage!), serial number 890309137, Samick Factory, Korea,
the factory Gibson first moved their production to
after taking over the Epiphone brand.
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 1989, this guitar's wood has 27 years of ageing and now has a sound that literally cannot be replicated.

...thin line hollow maple body with a stunning 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 creamy 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
for 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! This guitar is one of the earlier models that has the neck binding which goes all the way up the sides of the frets, better known as nibs.

In preparation for sale the guitar has received the following:-
- Frets polished
- Fretboard cleaned, lemon oiled and conditioned
- Restrung on 30/06/2016 with D'Addario 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 I would describe the condition of this guitar to be well above what you would expect for a guitar that is 27 years old. In fact I would go as far as to say, that you would be very lucky indeed to find a guitar of this age that comes anywhere near close to the condition of this guitar.
Even the "Made in Korea" and serial number stickers have minimal signs of wear. General playing wear is to be expected, and please keep in mind, the guitar is 27 years old and has been played, but there is nothing that detracts from the overall appearance and sound of the guitar.
The period hardcase is included with the guitar with
all latches working and normal signs of use and
looks like it has always been with the guitar.

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 !!
