Epiphone Sheraton - Ref 201


Epiphone Sheraton Semi Acoustic Guitar 1997 Korean 

Epiphone Sheraton
Semi Acoustic Guitar
Circa - 1997 -
With Genuine Epiphone Hardcase

This is the real deal when it comes to guitars,
an Epiphone Sheraton, aged and played in . . .
Built in 1997, serial number S7017154,
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 1997, this guitar's wood has 16 years of ageing and now has a sound that literally cannot be replicated.

...thin line hollow maple body with a gorgeous 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
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!

In preparation for sale the guitar has received the following:-
- Frets polished
- Fretboard cleaned, lemon oiled and conditioned
- Restrung on 15/09/2013 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 well above what you would expect
for a 16 year old used guitar. It would stand up extremely
well against any other guitar of this age.
Very rarely do I ever see 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.
I must say, this guitar is a credit to it's one previous owner and whoever buys the guitar,
will definitely not be disappointed in any way.
The genuine Epiphone hardcase is included with the guitar with all latches working and normal signs of use.
There appears to be a very small area of damage on the underside of the case that has been taped over.
I haven't lifted the tape off to see what is underneath,
but other than this small matter the case functions perfectly well otherwise and protects the guitar as it should.

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 !!
