Epiphone Sheraton LH - Ref 239 - SOLD

Left Handed Epiphone Sheraton 1996
Tobacco Burst with Hardcase

Epiphone Sheraton
Left Handed (Tobacco Burst)
Semi Acoustic Guitar
Circa - 1996 -
With Canadian Hardcase
This is the real deal when it comes to guitars,
an Epiphone Sheraton, aged and played in . . .
Built in 1996, serial number S6066615,
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 1996, this guitar's wood has 19 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, to be honest, shows minimal wear for its age, 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 and it is a dream to play!
I know as I'm left-handed myself and have had the
pleasure of playing this fine instrument for the
last couple of weeks, prior to preparing for sale.

In preparation for sale the guitar has received the following:-
- Frets polished
- Fretboard cleaned, lemon oiled and conditioned
- Restrung on 20/10/2015 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 19 years old. In fact I would go as far as to say,
that you would be very lucky indeed to find a
left handed 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 19 years old and has been played,
but there is nothing that detracts from the
overall appearance and sound of the guitar.
In the run up to Christmas these guitars will be harder and harder to come by, especially left handed versions.
The hardcase, which was made in Canada and is the same quality as the Gibson hardcases, is included in the sale
and is in good used condition with
all latches working as they should.

You will not be disappointed with this 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 !!
