  1. Oops! My bad! So sorry!The one in question is a Sheraton.
  2. Howdy, Does anyone know anything about Epiphones produced between 1986 and 1988? The seller claims that his Epi was made in a Samick factory and that those models were produced for two years only. On the headstock, it says "Epiphone by Gibson". Any info on those guitars? Cheers

  4. Thanks, bobouz! I'm also looking at a very interesting piece of axe now. Apparently, it was made between 1986-1988. On the headstock, it says "Epiphone by Gibson". The seller claims that those models are very rare.
  5. Hi there! Are those Sheratons made in China? How do they differe from the 1962 anniversary edition Sheraton? Cheers
  6. Thanks bobouz! I appreicate it that you spotted how long the guitar has been listed. It had escaped my attention. I don't think there's anything wrong with it but it does make me wonder. I will check it out personally. Anyhow, I wonder, how do you think those Epi's fare against modern Gibsons ES335 Studio? Cheers
  7. Hello bobouz! I got this pic yesterday: Looks like there's some kind of reproduced signature after all. I'll write more in a few hours. Lots of things on my plate right now. Thank you!
  8. Hi bobouz! Thanks a million for such a deatailed and informative answer! Appreciate it a lot! 1) You mentioned that those JLH Sheratons should have a signature on the label (aside from the Boogie Man thing on the pickguard) yet the seller claims there's none. Odd or not? 2) You said that the one that has a 50th anniversary label is essentially no different than any other Sheraton made in Korea at that time. I assume, thus, that the 64 AIUSA is significantly better? Or is it too much of an assumption to make? 3) Similarly, I assume those JLH Sheraratons are much better than 1962-reiusse anniversary Sheratons? The one I have comes with Gibson mini-humbuckers but was made in China. 4) If you were to pick one now, which one would you pick (I'm guessing it'd be the AIUSA one) and how much would you say they are worth? I'm trying to negotiate the price with the seller. 5) Last but not least, would you say any other Sheraton or (Gibson) would be wastly superior to that one being listed? Thanks again! Hope to see your insights again.
  9. Thanks for the link. Yes, I've actually checked it out before. It looks like "the most famous one" was the edition that was built in Japan/and assembled in the US. I just wish I knew if they really sound any different than the 50th-anniversary edition and if they are any better than the 1962-anniversary edition that came out in 2012.
  10. Thanks, Matt. I assume you're referring to the one I provided a link for. I've found some pics online. My dad used to have the one with a golden plate This is the one that guy is selling I honestly have no idea which one is better. Supposedly, the one that guy is selling was assembled in the US. The one my dad used to have had been built in 1998. I cannot find any info or comparison of those two models. Perhaps they are the same? Also, would you say they sound better than modern Sheratons? Better than the 1962 re-issue? I'd really appreciate further replies. Thanks
  11. Hi all! I'm a newcomer! Glad to be part of the forum. I use a Sheraton 1962 50th anniversary edition and I'm perfectly happy with it but a few days ago I stumbled across an ad for a John Lee Hooker Sheraton (https://sg.carousell.com/p/epiphone-limited-edition-john-lee-hooker-sheraton-vintage-sunburst-41886082/?ref=likes&ref_referrer=%2Flikes%2F) here in Singapore, where I'm currently based. Now, a good while ago, my dad bought a limited edition of a JLH Sheraton which was part of a limited series made in 50 copies only. Unfortunately, the guitar got stolen and we never saw it again. I'm looking now at the one this guy is selling and I'm trying to find out which edition it is. First of all, the one my dad owned had a signature by John Lee Hooker himself on the label (inside the body) and it had a 50th anniversary JLH writing on the head (engraved in a golden plate). The one this guy is selling is was supposedly assembled in the US, but I've never heard of any JLH Sheratons being made there. Also, the one my dad had didn't have "The Boogie Man" written on the pickguard. I realize that I'm not providing a whole lot of information, but I'd like to ask you... how are those guitars different? I couldn't find much online. Neither Google nor Epi's website offer much if anything. I just want to get my dad a guitar he lost, and as a massive JLH fan myself, I'd like to get one of those Sheratons back in the family. I wonder if those guitars are much different in terms of build, materials, pickups, and if the sound much different. Thank you for any comments and/or answers!
