  1. We would like to welcome Albannach into the fold. He has a big project on his hands.... http://forums.epiphone.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=14489 But when it is finished will be great to see it back to its former glory. We have 6,630 registered forum members and have had 4,703 visits to this thread. Astounding........still only have 6 proven owners of "Epiphone by Gibson" Sheratons on this forum. 1986 E-by-G's NaturalScience2112 (E-by-G Sheraton owners club # 2 (tobacco, sn:6066698)) Musikron (E-by-G Sheraton owners club # 1 (natural, sn:6094580)) 1987 E-by-G's Joe
  2. Albannach With it being an E-by-G organising the electrics should be easy has you should have far better access than other Sheratons which have to be accessed through the f holes you should have access via you bridge route like this: I don't know if you are good with a soldering iron and want to make a new harness yourself but you may want to consider this delivered to your door for a total price including postage of $80 http://bcsguitars.com/?page_id=837
  3. That is an E-by-G that needs some love, do you have the serial number it 1986-1988 Musikron has to see this.....he may be able to give you tips on bringing it back to its former glory. We likes our E-by-G's Allbannach You might be interested in this thread http://forums.epiphone.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=13095
  4. I bought a Peavey Valveking 112 and I used it always on the "A" setting and it gives about 25watt......sounded fine but still too much clout for me. Just bought a vintage Epiphone Pacemaker in great nick and from what I have read is about 12watt. I bought this amp on saturday and I am absolutely in love with one knob "Loudness" (not Volume :-) get that where you want it and then adjust with the volume and tone on the guitar......I am loving it. Blues, Jazz it makes my stock 89 Sheraton sound amazing, at a "Loudness" that is ideal in our home situation and as sweet as nut. It would not suit eve
  5. Should have been a free kick out side the box there AS90 and that is from a bluenose...... Great finish from Torres That's my half time assessment....
  6. AS90 I will take this in our local Liverpool dialect "ye wanna leev dat stella alone la" [biggrin] [biggrin]
  7. Thanks guys Musikron and Smips 12 or 13's would be too heavy for me for many reasons. Wiggy, that is an interesting obsersation about the D'addario 11's on your Tele and main culprit for me is my Joe Pass which has a GFS tailpiece and has a little sharp on the outside and I am now wondering if there is anything sharp in there where the end of the string sits. Smips I am more interested in blues than jazz and have been reaching too much when bending the e string. Just bad technique on my part I suppose, but will hopefully get the hang of things as I develop. Do feel I need l
  8. I would like to present my """new""" amp picked it up this morning Saturday 20th March Epiphone Pacemaker Tremelo 1963 sn 840002 made in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
  9. I have had an extremely GASeous week......I found items on the Swedish E-Bay "Blocket" I just could not pass up. I would like to present my new amp Epiphone Pacemaker Tremelo 1963 sn 840002 made in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Drove to Stockholm with my wife this morning and took my stock 1989 Sheraton along for the ride. I have been playing that guitar quite a bit on my Peavey Valveking 112. So I could get a gauge of how the new amp sounded. When I arrived at the guys home first thing he said was "Where are you from?" "Liverpool" I replied. "I am flying over to Liverpool in a couple of we
  10. I have been using D'Adarrio nickel medium top/heavy bottom 11,14,18,30,42,52 I like them but I seem to be breaking E strings usually the little ring at the end just just pops off. Probably bad technique on my part when I am bending strings. I also feel I need lighter treble strings so I thought of giving these a try RotoSound Blue 10-52, which are 10,13,17,30,42,52. Anyone tried those RotoSound Blue 10-52's or recommend better.
  11. Jeez Teeg you have shocked me it is usually more expensive to buy guitars here. It is good to compare prices across the pond.... PS I would not buy that one for $5,750.00 it is white I hate white guitars.......

  13. Hi Etchy Don't usally assist Liverpool supporters :- But, If I were you, I would go to the digrams section of the Seymour Duncan website, there you will many different variations and wiring schematics........
  14. Any 2007 Unsung Riviera owners in the house I have found a 2007 Unsung MIK Riviera Cherry Red beautiful condition.

  15. I loved the stones as a kid but my big Firebird "hunger" comes from two guitarists I am very fond of listening to Johnny Winter and Dennis Coffey the latter said is 63 Firebird was "the" best session guitar he had and used it most of the motown hits of 1960's. I also want split a set of Firebird pups and the SD's in the guitar I am buying are 4 wire. So game on......I came across this on a discussion board on a luthier site and a guy from States with a decent reputation making pickups made the following statement: I just want to comment on the internal workings of a Firebird pup. Th
  16. Alan yes there is a lot of mixed up terminology here, but I do say earlier. "I would have preferred a vintage sunburst but just so glad to find one here in Sweden with a set neck." I think I should have said be a set neck as opposed to bolt neck, initially in this thread, instead of usin neckthrough or through neck. If it is like the one in the video I found I will be happy enough. I know the design in a Gibby FB is true through neck as in all one piece I am not expecting the exact same design for a quarter of the price...I just want a set neck as opposed to a bolt neck and minis
  17. Nice one Carver I am sitting here with my "Annie Mae" she is wearing a nice little number and I have bought her a little tiara, I am trying to let her down easy over my thing with "Blanche"....NAAAAH Only Joking It is really "Joe Pass" with a GFS tailpiece. Carver learned a lot from you man, but I am only here to pass time, have fun, and get a nice few guitars around me for when I eventually coax my brother over to Sweden from Liverpool. You are one of the three people on this site I have learned most from. Thanks for that.
  18. that was cruel..... You had the choice Svet (I was just so glad to find this on my budget, but would have preferred a VS) why did you go for the white..........? Great Firebird there when did you buy it I have heard the minis criticised compared to the older models what do you say Svet.
