1968 Epiphone Sheraton

1968 Epiphone Sheraton

Epiphone’s top of the line semi-hollowbody of those wild 1960s, the Sheraton, with All The Stuff and more. Has that great, unique mother-of-pearl Epiphone floral inlay on the peghead, has the large block pearl with abalone triangle inlays on the fingerboard (all you Guild nuts out there will recognize these), has the triple bindings just about everywhere, has all gold parts including American-made (!) Grover Rotomatic tuners, has the super-comfy slim neck only found on Gibson instruments from Kalamazoo in the late 1960s, which this most certainly is. The finish is Epiphone-thick, I’ve seen this literally hundreds of times. In this case it’s from factory overspray and I guarantee it’s factory; almost sixty years of experience with American-made guitars tell me so. I have no idea why but we’ve checked this guitar over six ways from Sunday and its 100% solid, nothing hidden under there. Lessee, what else: tailpiece replaced with a Gibson one, fine by me, those original Epi “Frequensator” tailpieces almost invariably failed; plating on the pickup covers kinda light but they are indeed those GREAT original Gibson Mini-Humbuckers, nothing else in the world sounds quite like ‘em; Tune-o-Matic bridge an early type with no keeper spring, may well be original to the guitar. What counts, for those of you who want to play one of these instead of just staring at one, is that it plays like a dream and it sounds like the best love affair ever. All this adds up to one heck of a bargain, and it comes with its original hard shell case too. With asking prices for these routinely being in the $10K range, take me home and treasure me for only $3995 w/ohsc
