Hi, I play in a 60s covers band and I've been wanting a hollow-body (or semi-hollow) for long long time. I play through a Mesa Boogie f-50 (and have my eye on Vox AC15) and I'm looking for that glorious 'woody' tone that hollow body guitars can give. A friend who is a local luthier recommended looking for a Korean/Samick Sheraton and there's one in a local guitar shop from 1995 for £550. However, I've read that some believe that the newer Sheratons match or surpass the coveted mid-90s Korean models. Any thoughts or opinions on whether this is true or what to look for if I'm buying an older model? I realise that an older model may need refretting, which turns me off slightly due to the additional cost. I also admit total ignorance when it comes to guitar construction. I've always been a 'make do' kind of guy and tend play guitars stock. Would you recommend the Samick era Sheratons over newer models? Thanks.
