I found a used Sherry (in ebony) in my local store late last week. I compared it to two other used ones they had in stock and liked it the best. It turned out to be a Korean version. I was in there earlier today (just a pop in to visit a friend who works there) and noticed a used Epi Dot (in natural). I tried it out unplugged and wow, what a wonderful guitar! It was so bright and lively. I will pop in again on Friday to compare the Sheraton to the Dot back to back. I will also play them both plugged in (I have played the Sherry plugged in but not the Dot). I was all set to buy the Sheraton but that Dot made me pause. I think I would prefer the Sheraton just based on looks but will go with whichever sounds and feels the best (and the Dot is about 50% of the price of the Sheraton, although the Sheraton does come with a hard case).
