  4. First time I have ever seen a Sheraton acoustic...? Edit: The blue label says Epiphone Inc. Kalamazoo, Michigan then underneath in small letters Made in Japan sorry for any confusion....and it says a 1970's http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Vintage-1970s-Epiphone-Jumbo-Acoustic-Sheraton_W0QQitemZ190367372258QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Collectables_Vintage_RL?hash=item2c52c793e2

Not a great photo but you just might see what I
  6. Hi Musikron Still at our friends place for the weekend, Playing the guitar through an old Marshall amp my friend has last night. I am well happy, the only thing though, I am sure this must happen a lot and that it can be sorted, not the bridge it is the stop bar. Looks like one of the posts has lifted slightly where it goes into the body of the guitar. When I get back home tonight I will post a photo of that and some general photos, my instinct is that the stop bar post issue can be sorted and I am more than happy with the guitar. Fits right into my plans.
  7. I got the Eeebeegeebee it is much nicer in the real than in the photographs yes a couple of dings but still very beautiful and for the price 375 us dollars well worth the money IMHO. Schtang....this one is certainly not "really horrible" what was you beef with 80s Sheratons other than they are soooo heavy.... I am posting this from my friends PC laptop and I am mac minded so will post more and some photos when I get home. One thing, I would like your advice on Musikron will post a photograph of the bridge. Well I am number three in the owners club now.....

  10. Hi Bloozeguy I only have one amp a Peavey Valveking 112 and I use that with my Joe Pass. I am hoping in the future to try and get hold of Fender Blues Jr. way down the line. The Valveking does everything I need at the moment.

I had a look at the guitars in the link...really backs up what Musikron says about hi E-by-G that it is real heavy and well built (hopefully some nice wood in there and no particle board...recent thread...eek) the guy in the link says 9 1/2 lb Just nice to see some examples of these E-by-G's out there. (I have just thought of name for my new addition tomorrow. The "EEbeeGeebee" ) Thanks Sheila ................................................................................................................................. to be included

  13. I am really into blues and the iconic image of a bluesman for me...(IMHO) is John Lee Hooker with an Epiphone. My dream guitar a 1960 Epiphone Zephyr with New York Mini Humbuckers like the one Hooker played in the 60's. I have two Epi's and pick up a third tomorrow, all second hand, good solid Samick built examples, the plan is simple given my budget (which if you include my 1959 Levin acoustic would have well covered a pretty decent Gibby 335), modify these slowly over the next year. These guitars which cost me a lot less than buying new, so I will always put the difference I saved and a
  14. Jerrymac wrote: Jerry that is why I find this period so fascinating...also makes sense that if Ephphone was struggling at that time, that they may have added the "by Gibson" to pull on the Gibson brand to help sales... OK if I have got it right these 1986-88 guitars with the E-by-G are the earliest made in Korea.........The factory before was in Japan.....Matsumoku factory........ The font used by Matsumoku was similar to one used back to 1930's. Then in 1986 there is change in headstock by adding "by Gibson" to denote the break from Japan to Korea production......

  16. Sheila are they yours? Tomorrow, I pick up a 1987 like that but with plan black TRC. The whole purpose of this thread is to to concentrate on the 1986-88 Sherris and try and make sense of the serials and see if there are differences with later Sherri's weight etc.... this is the guitar I am buying tomorrow, if it plays OK...
  17. Yes Smips This will all come out as more people come forward with these guitars....That capital "E"....does look disturbing but let us get all the information on these guitars and compare features...None of the others have an a TRC like that. We are talking 1986 to 1988 when these were made, benefit of the doubt at the moment......lets get all the information in and then try and find out what went on in those days of production....
  18. Font on the serial sticker is the same, binding looks "stronger", font on the headstock inlay is definitely different......wonder if the earlier ones during the transition...........this is interesting.....hope we can find more early 1986 pre June models to compare.... .................................................................................................................................

  19. Hey great photos interesting is it possible to get a close up of the headstock back and front it seems your fonts are different might be because your serial is earliest we have recorded on this thread.......but we need a photo and a close up of the headstock, also the TRC is different too, in so much that it has the epiphone e, and it would be good to see that serial label...Looks like my two tobacco bursts. Another thing that interests me about these guitars is Musikron who handles a lot of guitars says is feels heavy...I am waiting to weigh my 1987 E-by-G next to my 1989 sherri to gauge the

  24. Hi iang27 a big welcome My brother back in Liverpool, was GAS'ing like crazy for this a while back, did you land it? Too..... Rockabilly for my tastes, but my brother thought it was a fine Rockabilly box..... His preference http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Rare-1998-Epiphone-ES-295-Semi-Acoustic-Guitar-Case_W0QQitemZ220539338125QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Musical_Instruments_Guitars_CV?hash=item33592b3d8d Post some photos when your guitar arrives... good luck
  25. Hi Musikron I read a lot of reviews and information before buying the box some get pissed off because it is not an attenuater but come on this is a low price attempt, it cannot compete with a true attenuater. It apparently just works on the preamp before the effects loop. The idea was apparently originally put forward on a Fender forum board and many people tried it and it worked for them. http://homerecording.com/bbs/showthread.php?t=282264 or I don't see what all the confusion is about with this device. In a nutshell, it's an inexpensive Volume pot for an amp's pre-a
