So my questions to all owners of "Epiphone by Gibson" headstock Sheratons..

Do your serial stickers look like the one in the photo below?

Do you have an 8 digit serial?

The TRC is plain black on the one I am buying did they come like that?

 

Last question which I suspect

should this mean

My guitar was made in

Korea

January c.1987

Production Number: 05418

Bloody hell' date=' Joe - that headstock looks like it's been around a bit.

 

Hope you're getting that for a good price, mate.

 

Might be a nice player, though...

 

And these days people seem to be paying a load of extra money to get that kind of look!

Joe' date='

 

The problem is most of the stickers with the serial #s have been removed, like the one I had years ago. But yes, that's what the stickers looked like, and the early number were random.

Hi leicester35

 

It will cost me £230 and I quite like the weather beaten look and some forum members have let it be know the "Epiphone by Gibson" are often quite well put together.

 

It has taken a few knocks over the past 23 years, but as long as it is in good playing order. I think it has "character" it will do me fine.

 

I am hoping to have it as my "ready to hand" guitar. Some would say "beater" but feels a bit luxurious talking about a Sheraton that way.

 

But that is what it is for.

Thanks JM

 

Just hoping there might be a few out there that still have the serial sticker to see if there is any rhyme or reason to those 8 digits.

Wow

 

That is surprising of all the thousands of Epiphone owners on this site only two other people Jerrymac who once owned one, and Musikron who has one.

 

So few peopled who own or have owned, a "Epiphone by Gibson" headstock Sheraton.

 

I have seen one on e-bay, Wonder how many of these were made.

 

Would like to get a list of owners just to try and sort the riddle of these serials.

Is that a white one JM?

I almost traded my Tele for a white one at a show about 18 months ago. The lead guitarist in another band and I were drooling over each others guitars. But it had no case and thus was pretty rough. Which normally don't bother me but I mean this poor thing was hurt.

 

I still want white one one day.

Hi Smips

 

This is the plan

 

Emperor will have black Mean 90's (so the duncans will be spare)

The "Epiphone by Gibson" Sheraton gets the Duncans

Other Sheraton gets Lollar minis

 

The Sheraton I have at the minute plays fine and the pickups are OK, but when I play it and then play my Emperor which currently has the Duncans well....it makes me want to hear the Duncans in Sheraton, which simply just sound better, clearer and more defined.

 

So I will have three pair of Epiphone pickups for fleabay myself.... if you want them cheap...Smips

I will have no use for them...

Maybe they will come in handy for all your repair and sell guitars

 

I don't believe this

That got me to thinking, I don't even have a clue as to how many Zephyr Regent owners are registered here.......

 

 

 

 

 

btw, the acoustic is upright and taking nourishment now, not all the way out of the woods, but stable.

Yep' date=' I've actually had two different white ones come my way over the years. I'd like to get a Samick Sherry again some day, white would be my preference. But to make Joe happy, I'll get a Sunburst with the [i']by Gibson[/i] on the headstock. I don't think they made the white ones until the '90s.

Hi Jerry and Musikron

 

I will not keep this thread going but will try to make a list of owners of Sheratons with the "Epiphone by Gibson" headstock.

 

It does seem that these are fewer on the forum than I imagined.

 

Jerry you own, and have owned some delicious guitars, you are a lucky man.

 

If some of those you have shown, are the ones you have let go.

 

I can imagine the "keepers" you have must be a very fine array of musical instruments.

 

And Musikron you promised me a photo :-).....So you are the only other guy on this forum so far with a Sheraton with a headstock like this (also a big thank you for looking at the photos and giving me your assessment on the Sheraton):

This is the last call for owners of Sheratons with the "Epiphone by Gibson" headstock.

 

We have 6,017 registered forum members and 378 visits to this thread.
