  1. It appears these new versions of the Lucille do come with a 'epilite' case which actually looks quite nice. It seems these are being given similar specs to other signature models, with the previous version being basically a standard run model. These have cts pots etc. I wonder how long they will be around?
  2. Nice. A varitone has always been something I've wanted to add to my collection. I'm sure I read somewhere that these will be out in white and red too. Let us know how it goes.
  3. It's very similar to a broadway, the headstock would fit a 60s, as would the serial number. However from those pictures, I would say that's not from the 60's. I don't think I've ever seen those fb inlays. Assuming that it's modern, the serial number given would indicate a reissue. But a reissue wouldn't have those tuning keys, a replacement possibly? Also if its modern the biggest point is the two hole truss cover. I don't know, it could be fake, it could have been a reissue, it could even have been for the Japanese Market only. Try asking Epiphone they may be more help.
  4. I'm from the UK, so my opinion may not count as valid as some on this but from what others have said in the past, take it to a proper tech. Get there opinion.
  5. Pictures of the back of the headstock and neck or at least the serial number would be needed to tell you anything of any detail.
  6. That's THE headstock we needed.
  7. The B7 does look best, it's the classic bibsby people think of on these type of guitars. My suggestion of the B3/B6 is purely because I don't think I would have the balls to screw through the top of THAT guitar and I don't think the roller is needed.
  8. I kind of had an idea a B3 was too short in length, but couldn't remember correctly the longer version. Still there is no reason why a casino needs a tension roller from a B7, I will say though a B7 does look better.
  9. Ok, but still my point regarding the tension stands. The trapeze doesn't apply downward pressure in the way a roller bar on a B7 would. A B3 would be a near identical replacement the trapeze, would it not?
  10. Would a B3 not be the correct one for a casino? Being full hollow there is little for the top screws to secure to and they have been used for how many years on the Gretsch 6122 etc? There is no downward pressure applied by the trapeze currently on, so I don't see the need for There to be any on a bigsby?
  11. Where did you purchase from new? It seems this model hasn't been made since 2012, so I doubt they would keep the software updated or available for that long unfortunately.
  12. Between this period some if not most sheraton II came with a gibson truss cover, including my 93. I know the riviera had the E, as did the epiphone by gibson models which came before this period. I know people mod them but there are several on ebay and reverb at the moment with the gibson cover.
  13. As cunnigham has said, a 90s sheraton is a completely different prospect from the guitars being produced today, and in the UK at least there are some currently going for a lot cheaper than a new version.
  14. If Robin The Hood didn't know then there's not many people around I know of who would. He was a literal encyclopedia about epiphone guitars but hasn't been around for a while. My guess would be a labelling error and the SL stands for serial. That's all I can think of. Either way don't include it in a number checker, it's not part of the Serial number.
