I Need Help Identifying a Sheraton

Recommended Posts

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!

Gibson truss rod cover, Epiphone logo angle and harmonica bridge indicate  a late 80s or early 90s Sheraton. The pickguard looks right to me, but is easy to swap out. Pickups were probabaly swapped too.
