    I am getting ready to sell my Epiphone Sheraton and had a couple of questions I want to get addressed before I list it. Guitar Dater says it was built in either Korea or China. Anyway to know for sure? Secondly, how would I know if it has the more desirable 5 piece neck? It has the two lines running down the back of the neck but I am not sure if that is indicative of a 5 piece. Would really appreciate the feedback. Cheers

    It seems to me that your Sheraton has the 5-piece neck,

    what is the serial# ?

    the place of manufacturing can be read out of the serial

    I will get some photos together this weekend but in any case, the serial is I05120581. The label in the F hole is orange and reads:

    Model: Sheraton II
    Number: NA (Natural?)

    Thoughts?

    So 5 piece neck and Korean made? Is this good? I really like the guitar but need to make room for something a little better.

    If it's Korean, that's a plus, but not much dollar-wise. More for the age of the wood rather than build-quality.

    Would $400 be a fair price to ask for?
