Epiphone Sheraton 89 - Ref 241 - SOLD

1989 Epiphone Sheraton Natural Semi Acoustic Guitar Korean
with Original Epiphone Hardcase

Epiphone Sheraton 
Semi Acoustic Guitar
Circa - 1989 -
With Epiphone 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 9072915, 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 26 years of ageing and now has a sound that literally cannot be replicated. 

...thin line hollow maple body with a stunning natural 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! 

In preparation for sale the guitar has received the following:-
- Frets polished
- Fretboard cleaned, lemon oiled and conditioned
- Restrung on 06/02/2016 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 26 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.
General playing wear is to be expected, and please
keep in mind, the guitar is 26 years old and has been played, but there is nothing that detracts from the
overall appearance and sound of the guitar.

The original Epiphone hardcase is included with the guitar with all latches working and normal signs of use.

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,
please do not hesitate to ask.
I will endeavour to answer all queries within 2 hours
during working hours or please feel free to contact
