I've got a chance to buy a stock 2003 Korean (Samick) Epiphone Sheraton (5 piece neck) at a decent price - with plans to upgrade later. I've always wanted one since playing a few in shops. I'm partial to the tobacco brown burst too, as opposed to the black for a change. I regret passing on ones I had the chance to look over personally, but I didn't have any money at the time. I do have a Hagstrom Viking that I love, but I want something shorter scale as my fingers are getting older. I've read all over the place on the Sheratons for a solid week now, but I can't find anything specific on the early 2000's. It seems like they either end up discussing the ones before late 90's or they talk about or compare them to the much newer ones. Some people ask what the best and worse years were, but I don't really find what I'm looking for. Does anyone own a 2003-ish or have any experience to offer about these years in general or what to look for? Like crooked tuners, etc. I've read about issues with bridge replacements as the sizes can vary, but I've found sites that talk about drop in replacement options or saddle replacements. So unless I got that wrong, I shouldn't worry about it,.. right? Do these different bridges mean different string spacing too? Just wondering what to expect, I'm not familiar with Sheratons. I'd like to find one I can hang onto for a while, even if it means passing on this one for now. Hopefully you guys can help me make a better decision whether to check it out or not as others are interested too. It's a bit of a drive to get there, or I probably wouldn't ask. Thanks in advance and for reading, have a good one!
