This says it could have been made in 1987, 1997, or 2007. But if you read this:

https://en.wikipedia...iphone_Sheraton

...this states that it was produced in Korea in years between 1997-2006. So by deduction, I believe your guitar is a 1997 model. Perhaps you agree?

More evidence that the guitar dater project site is kind of a joke.

if it were 1987, it would have the "Epiphone by Gibson" headstock...
