Epiphone Sheraton - Samick Factory 1986-1989

Hi,

 

I have a Sheraton which appears to be an early model from the Samick Factory around 1986-1989. It has the "Epiphone by Gibson" logo on the headstock.

 

Does anyone have any idea how much I could expect to get for this guitar if say I listed it on ebay?

the only pictures i have right now is from a live show. The finish looks rad. Seems to have aged well.

I'm want to get an Elitist Casino so I'm selling off a few of my guitars.

 

thanks!

I think there's a way to get info off Ebay showing what the last "enter my guitar here" sold for, but I don't know how to get it.

Mostly, though, I think used guitars are worth about 1/2 original sale price, plus and special things (upgraded neck on a Fender, fer instance, or rare color, etc.). I don't consider changing pickups, wiring and hardware upgrades, but rather as items of a previous owner's personal taste. Since it has to have all that stuff anyway, why should I pay extra for something that the seller is obviously not pleased with or he wouldn't be selling, now would he? Besides, I'm probably going to yank it all out and replace it all with hardware that matches MY personal taste anyway.

One the left hand side of the screen - after you've done the search - ther's a 'completed items' option with a checkbox. One of the most invaluable functions of eBay IMO.

Well guitar center has 4 used sheraton's listed ranging from$449 to $499 and thats from a major retailer...so if you want to move it fast considerably less than that. My guess is that $350-$400 ish is about top end on Ebay if you want to move it fast.

 

Yeah, *maybe* $425 with a nice case and if it's in really good condition. People aren't crazy about the "Epiphone By Gibson" logo. Most prefer the simple "Epiphone" logo. The Samick-made Sheratons are pretty good guitars but there's no premium there as a vintage guitar or anything like that.

 

...and Al's your uncle.
