  1. As far as the tuners are concerned, you will probably have to replace the entire unit. I would start at Stew-Mack, and research parts numbers from there.
  2. I would do the return rather than possibly mess up either the guitar or that new bridge. Now that you know what some of the problems can be, you will be a more experienced shopper. I would also take a look at what EBay has, or talk to the guys at Tru-Arc. They might be able to give you a little more personal advice as to what you're looking for.
  3. Any stable stand will do the job. I prefer the little folding Fender stands primarily for the ease of storage and when travelling. Get the "acoustic" model. It has a deeper rest that works very well with my Sheraton.
  4. Nothing against CTS, but using them to replace the stock pots will not change anything. On the other hand, a Switchcraft jack and switch replacement gives immediate results
  5. Go with a good contact cleaner on both the switch and the pots. After being unused for so long they will oxidize.
  6. Unfortunately, the only one that I've been able to get my hands on was not in the best shape. It was hanging on the wall at GC, and I was told that it was just unpacked. The lack of a decent set up was probably the reason for how it played. It was really difficult to get a feel for what the guitar would play like in that shape. It did appear to need considerable nut work for starters, and that always annoys me, being that our local GC is not big on free set ups. It turned out that the guitar was a return item from an internet sale, so whether they will ever get one in as stock is hard to say. I'm keeping my eyes out for one though.
  7. The neck profile is actually very true to the period. It's large, but you should be able to handle it fine.
  8. I have several Epiphones, and can't say that I've had any switch problem that a little contact cleaner couldn't fix. Although, if a problem persisted, I would also recommend the Switchcraft replacement.

  10. Once NAMM has finished up, I'm told that retailers will start placing orders and get these things into our hands. And I have to admit, that green one is calling my name.
  11. I've had a couple of Sheratons over the years. But the latest pickup addition, with coil splitting, has really made this a much more useful guitar. My main gripe with the earlier models was that I could not get the variety of tones that I needed. This new Pro II model has taken care of that problem, and the updated hardware is just icing on the cake. Mine is a 2017 model, and now one of my favorites.
  12. Seeing that Epi has never had a Custom Shop, I would be skeptical.
  13. Did that new switch fit the current 3-way switch cavity? It looks like a little additional carving might be required.
  14. I'm thinking that a lot of the "good" reviews are coming from guys that play with a certain amount of distortion. I say that because of the few that I've played, I could not get a realistic clean sound out of them. Otherwise, good luck !!
