This is a vintage 1967 Epiphone Sheraton E212T semi-hollowbody electric guitar. This particular example, serial number 533804, is in near very nice all original condition and includes the original black hard shell case! The Gibson-made Epiphone Sheraton was the brand’s most elaborate and fancy semi-hollow and was even more expensive than Gibson’s ES-355 counterpart! Consequently, the Epi Sheraton was produced in very small quantities, and according to shipping totals this non-vibrato (Frequensator tailpiece) model with a Cherry Red finish is 1 of only 53 in this configuration ever made.
Though the original pickguard is not currently installed, it is included. It was modified and cut, for whatever reason, but does come with with guitar. It is otherwise 100% all original with no issues. It has an attractive factory black stinger on the headstock, and an incredibly vibrant, unfaded, Cherry Red finish. The gold hardware displays years of expected playing wear, yet the overall condition is well-preserved.
With incredible action, this guitar is a fantastic player’s piece. The mini-humbuckers sound balanced and powerful, and the slim taper neck feels great.
