Well, I'll get straight to the point... this is definitely a new one for me!











Saw my buddy from the band Eclipses for Eyes was tryin to get rid of his Epiphone Sheraton II for next to nothing, so I jumped on it, as I've always wanted to try a semi-hollow, and the price was too good to pass up. The fact that it came with the hard case is even more awesome!

Honestly, with this guitar having been toured and been played fairly hard over the past few years, I was expecting this one to have A LOT more wear than it does... but with a quick clean, this thing is almost indistinguishable from new! Plays great and sounds nice as warm. Definitely going to take a while to get used to the bigger body, but overall, it's the best investment I've made in music gear in quite some time! Hell, it even has the band's logo spray-painted on the case, so maybe if I want a few years for them to get more famous, it'll be worth millions!

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Congrats! It's a sweet, inexpensive semi-hollow. Mine's the older Korean burst.


I'm quite impressed with it so far. I don't have a whole lot of experience with semi-hollows, but this is definitely the best sounding/built Epiphone I've owned. Definitely digging it...

This one's serial number starts with a "U", which indicates it was built in the Korean Un Sung factory, and the serial number dates it as being made in December, 2007 For a guitar that's almost 7 years old, this thing barely looks like it's been touched... even though I know that to be far from true!

Maybe later this week... the Bogner's tubes seem to be dying and I don't have time to take it apart and play with it until later in the week. I've always got my Roadster to play through, but that's just not the same....

I'd say it somewhere between the 50s and 60s Gibson neck, though I have neither around anymore to compare to. Epiphone describes it as a "Slim Taper “C” Profile."

I like the figuring on the top. A lot of the Sheratons have a pretty plain look but yours looks sweet

Yeah, I'd like to say that I really like this guitar and I'll be keeping it for a long time, but who am I kidding? We all know this guitar is going to get sold within the next 4-6 months, regardless of whether I love it or not

You know, I don't think I really have anything to add, aside from some pedals I never took pictures of...

I did finally set up my drumset that I traded for like a year ago and instantly stacked up in the corner, in favor of my silent e-kit...





Sounds sooooo gooood
