  1. Hey Scratch a chill may be equivalent to a tingle.....:-) Just thought of another tingler from my youth Alvin Lee and Ten Years After 1970 the Cricklewood Green album, I was 14 and it was a hot summer, Brazil won the world cup, Jairzhinho, Pele....., and in my bedroom listening to Hendrix, Alvin Lee and a host of other wonderful guitar sounds. Enjoy Alvin on this track....Oh, nearly forgot what an intro, a real mood setter.... [YOUTUBE] [/YOUTUBE]
  2. I was born in 1956 and have followed Van Morrison throughout his whole career from Them to the present day, and I idolise the fat, old, grumpy, bastard. Whenever I need the "Healing to Begin" I throw on Van Morrison. (If you are ever feeling low and need a tingle in your life try Ancient Highway from the These are the Days album...........) Back in my home city of Liverpool with people of my generation there is one intro to a song that is sure to get everyone out of their seat, up dancing and having a time at a party when they have had a few drinks. One of my least favourite Morr
  3. Hi Musikron I play through the clean channel on Valveking 112 with amp volume set to 9 but I use one of these Omnisonic Tube Amp Volume Boxes set to 3 http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Omnisonic-Tube-Amp-VOLUME-BOX-for-PEAVEY-Classic-30-50_W0QQitemZ140336608052QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item20acb6b334 I still get a nice valve sound out of the amp but my wife and kids can live with my playing volumes....It had to be done, I am a family man. Maybe this is why I have not heard anything "ghosty" or "quacky" just sounds like a nice "OK" bluesy neck pickup to me. By the way I k
  4. Yes, I took the neck p_up out and it is as dry as bone, no wax in there, by the look of it, and does not look like the cover was ever soldered.....the cover moves definitely not attached, I could just pull it off if I wanted. What do you think? How can this still sound nice through my Valveking 112 in this condition???.....I only use the clean channel on my amp, mostly picking out blues stuff I am learning, either just on the neck pickup or neck and bridge together. .......................................................................................................................
  5. Just had a look at it again and when I just lightly rock the neck pickup it feels like the casing is loose. I will have to take the neck pup out and see if the cover is soldered properly.
  6. Hi Musikron So they were unpotted?? prior......to you potting them.... is that how they come. The neck pickup on 89 Sheraton seems to me like it is not potted, as I say when I tried adjusting the pole pieces the whole six poles move. That can't be right...?
  7. Best buying from a reputable dealer if possible.
  8. Hi Outforblood If you want a one-stop-shop and maybe a ready made assembly. E-mail these guys and see what kind of deal they can do for you. http://bcsguitars.com/?page_id=585

  10. Fine sleuthing OS, good that you have pointed that out. I see the lay of the land now. Thanks.
  11. Old Scratch wrote: I only get a epiphone forums link. Where is the incorrect link situated? You are totally right OS all links should make the navigation of the site specific for Epiphone and Gibson users. I have never ventured into the Gibson site. But it would be good to know where that link is you refer to so I can avoid it.
  12. Thanks SH we are pretty sure all these were made in the 80 's Musikron interesting you decided to stick with your stock neck pickup, the neck pickup on my present Sheraton definitely needs potting so I am going to opt for a re-placement, I tried adjusting one of the poles and there is a lot of movement in there. I really looking for to seeing the photos of Eze's E-by-G....... Then he can be officially number 2 in our E-by-G owners club We have 6,040 registered forum members and 710 visits to this thread.

  13. Thanks Musikron Beautiful Has to be number 1 in our "Epiphone by Gibson" headstock Sheraton's owners club ....Eze's guitar can be number 2. Get mine Next Saturday if all is fine with it. You have 7 digits in your serial and the first 6 denoting 1986 September by the 09. My starts with 7 but has 8 digits not much rhyme and reason to that...can't see why they started putting a 0 after the year and month. Going to have to find more with serial stickers to compare. Just wondering is it all stock or have changed anything on the guitar assembly, pickups.
  14. Hi rpach10115 So does yours have the "Epiphone by Gibson" headstock? Are you in our club :) We have 6,030 registered forum members and 552 visits to this thread. Still only Eze Musikron and soon Joe Samick (next Saturday I pick it up all being well and sound with the guitar) own these Sheratons with the Headstock Please if anyone else knows of anyone else who owns one, or sees one for sale, drop me a line.
  15. Welcome Eze and now we have two owners and one prospective owner of these guitars. Is it possible to post any photos and I am trying to find out if they all have 8 digit serial numbers. Looking forward to seeing the photos...... the one I am interested in is Tobacco Burst and Musikrons is Natural, what finish is yours?

  16. Thanks Suicidedhummer Yes thanks, the serial must be 1987 as they only produced these headstocks between 1986 and 1988. I am amazed though at how few there are on this forum only two people so far own them. Musikron really rates is guitar as Samick Sheratons go, so: We have 6,022 registered forum members and 473 visits to this thread.

  18. Hey Smips Congratulation man that is a beautiful guitar. Big coincidence I told my brother in Liverpool I had found my dream thinline Zephyr on e-bay which is way out of my budget and he said he very much liked this ES-295. Which is very like full hollow version of the beauty you just got HNGD, enjoy. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Rare-1998-Epiphone-ES-295-Semi-Acoustic-Guitar-Case_W0QQitemZ220539338125QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Musical_Instruments_Guitars_CV?hash=item33592b3d8d
  19. Hi Jerry and Musikron I will not keep this thread going but will try to make a list of owners of Sheratons with the "Epiphone by Gibson" headstock. It does seem that these are fewer on the forum than I imagined. Jerry you own, and have owned some delicious guitars, you are a lucky man. If some of those you have shown, are the ones you have let go. I can imagine the "keepers" you have must be a very fine array of musical instruments. And Musikron you promised me a photo :-).....So you are the only other guy on this forum so far with a Sheraton with a headstock like

  21. Smips Maybe they will come in handy for all your repair and sell guitars I don't believe this 6,006 registered members on this forum and this thread has had 227 views and to date the list of owners of Sheraton's with the "Epiphone by Gibson" headstock is two people Musikron JoeSamick
  22. Hi Smips This is the plan Emperor will have black Mean 90's (so the duncans will be spare) The "Epiphone by Gibson" Sheraton gets the Duncans Other Sheraton gets Lollar minis The Sheraton I have at the minute plays fine and the pickups are OK, but when I play it and then play my Emperor which currently has the Duncans well....it makes me want to hear the Duncans in Sheraton, which simply just sound better, clearer and more defined. So I will have three pair of Epiphone pickups for fleabay myself.... if you want them cheap...Smips I will have no use for them...
  23. Well Musikron You can't come with me, but the guy was good enough to put a lot of photos of the "Epiphone by Gibson" Sherri I will be buying on the net. Also, seeing you seem to be, the only other guy on the forum, with one of these Sherri's you would be the ideal guy to take to look at it. It is a bit beaten up (but I sort of like that, it has character) and $380 is a bit much, but it does have that rare headstock maybe you could look at these photos and run your "eagle eye" over them: http://s33.photobucket.com/albums/d76/sticky_pl/gitarr/?start=0 there are a couple of
