  1. must say, I much prefer the generic body shape
  2. I remember those in the 80's. They were really horrible. Much prefer the comtempory Sheratons (pre- China made)
  3. 2002 to 2007 are the best years for the SG Standard (the stock PUs are just so much better than the horrible muddy pickups Gibson used in the 90's, 80's & 70's.. just check this beauty out - no QC issues what so ever - craftmanship top notch.
  4. well lets face it - Strats are way better for versatililty than Gibsons (and I am a big Gibson fan) and he wasn't the only person to dump Gibsons (jeff beck, jimmy page studio work telecaster, pete green etc etc). Clapton sounds much better playing Strats - to me his Gibson phase was just that a, very small phase in his musical life. I never cared for the flat compressed humbucker sound Clapton had during Cream etc it was just boring. He became much much better when he switched to a strat in the 70's and thank god for that.
  5. you obviously have not played this studio, heavy as hell (you did state you like heavy LPs). P-90s, only way to go with a Gibson Studio. This one will blow the rear out of your epi that makes good sound but cost cheap.
  6. But if it's pronounced like l'umo (the man) it would be "Da-Dario" I think. My Dad is Austrian/French and my mum is from Rome. I am very rustic when I speak Italian but have no problem understanding it. I would ask my mum and Dad how it is pronounced but both died in 2004.

  8. The Sherri is a superior guitar to the dot. Beautiful slim neck, the craftmanship in the woodwork is much better than the dot, the binding within the f-holes are lovely and shows that Epiphone are really dedicated to the finer points on the Sheraton II. The cosmetics from body-binding to the bound neck/headstock to the lovely inlays on the headstock and fretboard leave the dot way behind. Soundwise the Sherri is much fuller than the dot and has wonderful controlled feedback.
