I'ts a late 80's Sheraton model I was told; the sticker on the headstock was missing when I bought it second hand. [-X

 

Anyways here she is:

The gold Reflector knobs are replaced with black Speed knobs.

 

Pickups are Seymour Duncan Jazz(n)/JB(B) with coilsplit function.

Epinder' date=' that's quite a collection of lefties. I'd guess you're persistent.

Thanks, I always have my eyes and ears open searching for another, ........ whatever comes along.

 

I really like your sherrie in natural. I noticed that your "f" holes are slimmer than on mine. Is yours an older model?

wow, nice ric and gretsch, epinder...

 

Joe Pass Emperor II:

 

Your guitar was made at the

Samick Plant, Korea

July 1994

 

modifications:

 

1. frequensator tailpiece...I wanted to reference epiphone's history (I did this)

2. chrome and black top hat knobs like the standard broadway (I did this...wasn't hard LOL)

3. removed pickguard, which was warped

4. fix bridge and set intonation (I did this)

5. truss rod adjustment and set-up (pro)

6. rewire pots for standard RH operation...full tonal range restored! (pro $25)

7. lower action and restring w/ D'Addario EXL110 10-46 (I'm not a jazz player)

8. first a pick, then a bit of foam wedged in next to neck PU to stop sympathetic buzz

9. PU height and pole pieces dialed in (I did this)

10. new caps, I think (obviously the tech did this, LOL)

 

the pickups might get swapped out in the future, but they sound OK...I wanted to add imperial

buttons, but the tuners are not grovers...the imperials went on my EJ300S...

 

fun to play unplugged and electric...color is a little off in this photos, much nicer in person:

Casino:

 

Your guitar was made at the

Saein Plant, Korea

August 2005

 

modifications:

 

1. removed pickguard, which caused static electricity

2. truss rod adjustment and set-up (pro)

3. rewire pots (new ones) for standard RH operation...full tonal range restored! (pro $25)

4. lower action and restring w/ D'Addario EXL110 10-46

5. pointer knobs...or were they stock?

6. RH "e" TRC...the lefty one looked weird (pointing in)

7. new toggle switch

8. pole pieces dialed in (P90s sound good)

9. new nut

10. new caps, I think...

 

plays great electric and unplugged and very well made...very narrow nut and one piece neck with the exception

of a little heel piece were it meets the body...I'd like to get the longer 6" trapeze (color is a little off in these photos):
