Hi everyone I've joined the forum as a new epiphone owner and in need of help. I bought a Sheraton-ii VS as stated on the inside label from an eBay seller. Great guitar lovely looking but really needed a clean. I know with most guitars VS means vintage sunburst but this guitar is all natural maple colour with the gold grover tuners and red tortoise shell pick guard. So what does the VS in this case mean? Vintage series? And if it was a pro model would it be printed on the label inside. It just says Sheraton-ii VS and the serial number which I had checked online. The guitar looks factory finnished apart from the volume and tone knobs which are black and not the off gold colour. Any help would be very much appreciated.
Hey folks, So I got a new Epiphone (Sheraton ii Pro) and the action was really low out of the box, so much so that there's a bit of buzzing going on. I took it to the man who sets up my guitars and we found that the truss rod wasn't tightened at all. This obviously creates a problem because if we tighten it anymore, the neck will become even more convex and the buzzing will get worse. His idea was to put 11s on the guitar instead of 10s to increase tension in the opposite direction, and rase the bridge a bit to see where we're at after that. I do trust his expertise, but I wanted to know if anyone has had a similar experience here. Have you ever gotten a guitar with a truss rod like that, and how has it affected the life of the guitar? Thank you
I'm trying to identify the exact (or close) model of the white Epiphone Sheraton guitar that the original front man for Acid Bath, Agents of Oblivion and Deadboy & The Elephantmen; Dax Riggs plays. I have tons of pics of his guitar, seen it in person many times and I still can't find which model it is. It doesn't have to be EXACTLY the same model, but as close as I can get or if someone can point me in the right direction. Here are the specs & pics: Epiphone Head Stock The color Looks Cream White or White. Could be beige or natural? Pickups are not gold like most of the other Sheraton's I see, but the rest of the hardware is. Custom pickups maybe? Pick guard is different than most; shape and color/design. The Epiphone 'E' symbol on the pick guard also looks different. Dax's guitar is the white one on the right in the pics. If you need more pics, I can gladly post them. This information is needed for information I'm writing for a website and since Dax's has since disappeared from the music scene as of 2016, trying to find out about all his music equipment has been difficult. Any help with identifying his Sheraton will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
