Yes this is more accurate the first is way too orange. Book matched 2 piece too seam dead center.
I believe we have a keeper! a beauty.My '89/'90? Korean Samick Epiphone Sheraton II I picked up a few weeks ago in a pawnshop for a "CRAZY" low price. I'd been waiting for years to find the right one for the right price.
Now I'm finally in the Epi Sheraton family.
Bought it already modded with Schaller M6 mini tuners and Schaller Model 492 Quick Change Stop Tailpiece with fine tune adjustment screws(removed by previous owner)
And also a surprise upgrade of both pickups to late 80's Seymour Duncan Jazz (neck) and JB (bridge)
Almost 95% of all Epiphone made between 2006 and 2018 have that nice Custom Shop Limited Edition stamp right there on the back of the headstock. Purely marketing as Epiphone doesn't and never had a Custom Shop.This is my 2013 limited edition Epiphone custom shop I bought from my guitar teacher for 50 bucks. It was a good deal because this is one of my favorite guitars now! Made in Indonesia BTW.

Ok thanks... I never knew what that sticker meant but I've heard that when it's on the headstock it has some sort of special item that's not on the regular Epi's like better tuners or real Gibson pickups or something but I don't know if that's true. I just know that it sound good through my amp and i like itAlmost 95% of all Epiphone made between 2006 and 2018 have that nice Custom Shop Limited Edition stamp right there on the back of the headstock.

It can still be a great guitar though
