Super duper bargain Sheraton II. Took the goofy pickguard off but otherwise straight outta China. Could get some corksniffers to insist that it will be fine with new pickups, wiring, pots and tuners but as it happens it is superb as is. Kids today and their perfectly tolerable guitars.

ooh. Loves me a Sheraton, whatever the nation of origin. People diss Epi's alnicos but there are contexts in which they are very useful. Congrats.

I imagine that if you stuck them in a solid body and then ran then through some thick distortion, they would be muddy. On a maple
semi through a Music Man, they are plenty bright.
It does depend on the guitar that's true. I used to have an Epi LP Standard and a Deluxe that I actually liked quite a bit. One had full size and one had mini-buckers. I have a Springfield Epi Dot clone that came from the Samick factory that made the Epis with just a few differences. Small headstock and heritage cherry finish, which I don't think was offered by Epi at that time. But the pups were the same. It's a guitar I use a lot as a controller. Has a flat board radius and a kind of D shaped neck. The heavily potted alnico pups are good with a lot of overdrive and distortion. Very manageable. I depotted a hot alnico with a hairdryer and even though without vacuum suction it still has some potting it did open up some.
I also like Gibson's hot ceramics so I'm sure I'm just an idiot. :laugh2:

Watching "102 Minutes That Changed America," about the day a guy I knew took his last plane ride, into the WTC.

Tons of previously unreleased footage of desperate people jumping to a less awful death than burning.

I can't imagine I'll be drifting off to any kind of an easy sleep tonight.

That kind of subject can stick with you for days, as I guess it should. Sometimes you find you're getting more invested in it than is comfortable though and a favorite comedy is in order, for rebalancing.

Hell to the yeah, as Edro sez.
Comedy is medicine, brother.

In fact, I switched to the Comedy channel and it helped.
Irreverent, wiseass comedy and running 3-note-per-string speed fingerings on a great partscaster did the trick, and now it's time for ice cream and then bed.

HNGD Paul! Blonde ES guitars rule! :dude: Between your Sheraton, Edro's Casino and my Riviera we have the Epi Thinline series in blonde covered! :thumb:

Good Morning folkses! :wave:

Ever since moving over to Postimage for sharing photos I have never got them working with this site & this site alone.

Seems Edro's pic wont show for me either. Had to right click the empty space & select view image...

...this opens it up in a new window. The only way I can post pics here now is by uploading them direct from my PC.

Bit of a pain in the arse. Anybody got any idea what's going on here?
