We haven't done this, for awhile. So....what's your Dream Epi? One you have, or want/covet, one you may
never get, but would LOVE to?

I have mine, already. My AIUSA Sheraton II. I only wish (now), that I had bought 2, the one I have, and
a "natural" with frequensator.

I DO wish Epiphone would make a Sheraton, Riviera (mini-humbucker version) with pre 1970 Kalamazoo spec's,
(Headstock shapes, Gibson Truss rod, and 2 hole Truss rod covers, etc.), in several different colors.
Natural, Vintage Cherry, Sunburst, Black, and Dark Walnut! With other "custom" colors available, by special
order with only a reasonable surcharge, of maybe 20%.

So, what are YOUR Dream Epi's?

For those here, than haven't seen it, here's a couple of photos, of my "Dream" Epi....AIUSA Sheraton II

I added the Imperial Tuner buttons, but kept the original "kidney bean" buttons, as well.

Hmmm.... I remember these, they look kinda cool but not a very good guitar, they are collectable.. Japanese made 21 frets, bolt on neck, microphonic pickups, creaky tremolo and cheap hardware. It was a nightmare seeing the Epiphone logo on these. Guess every body makes mistakes. Not even close to the current China made Epiphones being built today like the one below.

Some very nice guitars shown. My dream guitar was always getting a Gibson which I did purchase 5 years ago. My son wanted to sell his Epiphone Custom Pro Collectors Edition in Pelham Blue he paid a good price for and I talked him out of it and offered to buy it. Built in China. Since I've given him so many things he gave it to me and it's become one of my favorite guitars. Later he wanted a guitar to play again and I thought he wanted it back but he insisted on my Black Epiphone Standard instead so I said you have a deal. Sometimes we babysit at their house and I can play it over there! Posted Image

My dream Epiphone would be any semi-hollow that:
a - has minihumbuckers,
b - I can afford, and
c - doesn't have that garish Union Jack paint job like the current Gallagher-style Sheraton offering. Eugh.

Like a Chinese-made non-Elitist version of this...

If I could get confirmation that the conversion would work, I'd try buying a Riviera P93, thrown in some dogear-to-mini humbucker conversion rings & swap those P90s out for some spare mini humbuckers I have sitting around. (The P90s on those P93 Rivieras are so muddy anyway).

My dream Epi would be a Wildkat with a vintage-style burst finish. Oh, and an access panel in the back to help find the picks my toddler keeps dropping into the f-holes.
