    Picked up an Epi Sheraton II today. Traded my very nice 2006 MIM Tele hot rod for it.

    Nice, I've wanted to try those for some time now, I did try one once but that was before I knew anything more than a bar chord.:D

    Wow. Please tell me how the neck is on these things. ALmost all my favorite bands are playing these. Silversun pickups, being the most influential.
    for all these guys to be playing these things, there must be something special about them.
    (perhaps it will be the next epiphone casino al la John Lennon)

    Congrats. I can;t even look at the Sheraton model because it reminds me on how I missed out on one for $100.

    cool.

    i've got a natural finish korean one. just recently swapped out all of the electrics for cts/orange drop/switchcraft and sd jb/jazz pups - it makes a big difference and i would recommend doing it although it takes a certain amount of patience and dexterity to do!

    Thanks!! The guitar plays great. I like it because the fret wires are not as high as was the case with my Casino. The neck is such that I don't have to be careful playing say a c chord. I just plunk my meat paws on it without muting another string accidently.
    EEF you pay that much for the case. They are made in Korea but still a very nice guitar.

    I can do the work no problem but I like the way it sounds for now. I will change the switch and output jack and add a ring though.

    well if you are going to swap some of the electric components the whole lot has to come out anyway so if i were you i'd do a whole new loom. the electrics in asian built epiphones dont have a particularly good reputation for quality and/or longevity and it would be a pita to take it all out to change the jack only to have to do it again a few months later because of a crackly pot or something.

    not telling you what to do with your git though - you do what the heck you want with it so long as it makes lots of noise :D

    excuse my ignorance - what do you mean by adding a ring?

    Come to think of it I have a set of cts pots but they are only 250's. The ring would be around the output hole for more stability.

    Nice axe, HNGD. I've always loved Sherries.

    Happy New Sherry Day !

    Never seen Sheratons with FB-inlays up to the higher frets:wow:

    usually the last inlay is at the 15th fret:hmm:

    You are correct par, those upper fret markers are decals.

    I was about to write about that! Man, where did you get those decals? They look great.

    Congrats on the NGD. Look at my avatar :D

    The decals were on it when I bought it. I'll try to find out.
