Hey all, this is my first post here. I own several Epi 335 stalys, a Casino natural, A CAsino "Inspired by John Lennon" and a 2015 Dot Deluxe. So I'm a big fan.

I ran across an interesting guitar today that I don't know much about so I thought I'd ask here.

It;s an Epiphone by Gibson Sheraton. I did a little Googling and found out some stuff so my question is about this one in particular. My concerns are, there is no sticker (serial #) on the back of the head stock, there is no sticker inside the F-hole, the pick guard has been removed and there is electric tape on the wiring visible through the F-hole. SO I don't know what pickups it has.

My question involves its value and how the things I've described would affect that. It's in good shape, plays well but since I already have several 335's, the collectability of this one interests me as much as playing it. Oh, they want $675 for it.

Any input will be appreciated

Used they go for around $300 to maybe $400 and that is with a hard shell case. Offer $350 and if they don't accept pass on it.

I have to get a little pedantic here --- your Casinos are not really 335 style guitars, as they share basic concepts with the 330, The major differences are as follows:

.......................330/Casino.........335/Dot/Sheraton
Body Construction......Fully Hollow.......Semi-Hollow with center block

Pickups................P-90's.............Humbuckers or Mini-Humbuckers

Neck-Body joint........16th Fret..........19th fret

The 330, Casino and 335 all have mahogany necks, while the Sheraton usually has a laminated maple neck, which gives it a somewhat stiffer feel and brighter tone.

I don't know the U.S prices being in the the U.K, but I would expect an almost 30 year old probably Korean made Epiphone by Gibson to go for more than that. They tend to go for 400-700 here depending on condition.
There's a big long thread somewhere about the epi by gibson Sheraton, you may get more info looking on there.

Your correct. I was lumping them all into the double cutaway with f holes style of guitar.
