So I'm at work and my manager walks up to me and says, "Hey we have an Epiphone semi hollow trade-in coming over Monday and if you can clean it up for the floor that would be awesome"

 

My full attention was on this guitar because: A) I LOVE semi and hollow body electrics... and B) I really have been liking Epiphone... and C) I was hoping that it was a particular model.

 

So I wait over the weekend and eagly bust into work Monday morning to check out this guitar and SURE ENOUGH!!!! I was looking at a relatively new, spotless, Epiphone Sheraton II. Years ago I had one of these and like an idiot traded it for a couple effects, cables, strings, etc. I was young and dumb but the trade value was probably about $350.

 

Anyways, I cleaned the finger prints off, polished the hardware, set the intonation, adjusted the neck, etc. basic set up stuff... After playing the guitar for about twenty minutes I put it back in it's case and set it in the back with all the layaway and returned repair items. My manager looks at me strangely and asks, "Why aren't you putting that on the floor?" to which I respond "Here is a fifty dollar deposit on the Sheraton II... that's my guitar now" haha

 

So, I am happy to say that I am an owner, AGAIN, of an Epiphone Sheraton II. SUCH a great sounding, and playing guitar.
