Hello,
i am new on this forum. I play guitar for 13 years, mainly jazz, and own a gibson lespaul and an epiphone sheraton.
This forum seems to be full of information about epiphone and gibson.
I am looking to have information about my epiphone because i doesn't succeed to find information about it.
It's an epiphone sheraton with the serial number 14132.
Do you know where and when i was made?
Thank you,
Cyril

Is it a newer guitar like a Sheraton II, reissue or anniversary model or is it an original 1960s Epiphone Sheraton?

Is the number stamped into the back of the headstock or printed in ink?

Any other numbers on the guitar?

Thank you Johnny3j. It is an old one. The number is printed in ink on a paper inside a side hole.
There is no other number on it. I can send a picture later one if it would help?

I think what you have is an Epiphone Sheraton made at the Terada plant in Japan in 1991, very well made and regarded guitars.
Regarding the serial number, the first letter indicates the year (1 = 1991), the second letter indicates the type of guitar (4 = Sheraton).
The remaining 3 digits (132) refer to the production or batch number.

Thank you,
I bought it in England during a congress just after they vote for going out of Europe.
Kind of nostalgic guitar.
