This Epiphone Sheraton is a limited-edition release being just 1 of 1962 ever made, with this particular guitar being number 1866 of 1962.  

It is in exceptional condition, with only very light scratches here and there around the body, some pickwear on the pickguard and a small dent on the neck around the 4th fret. But overall, the guitar is in lovely shape.

The original Nashville style bridge and bridge posts were changed out for the more
vintage correct ABR-1 bridge and wood mounted bridge posts by industry respected -  Frank Grubisa.

 

The Sheraton certainly looks the part with its beautiful Cherry finish, and is sure to catch eyes wherever it goes. 

It plays beautifully in all positions and is set up nicely with a medium low action. The mini humbuckers are killer – offering up a tight & focused punch without the mud of some full-sized humbuckers.  
 
This is a beautiful guitar in every way – a true classic without the price tag of its factory siblings. A seriously good looking, sounding and playing guitar. 
  
Comes in its original Epiphone hard shell case in great condition along with all case candy.
