I'd been wanting and older Epiphone Sheraton II for a VERY long time. I've looked locally at pawnshops, CL,and FB Marketplace for many years, and had never run into any older one. I've read a thread posted here a while back that said the Pre-'96 Sheraton II's were the ones to buy. My luck changed this past Sunday, when I went to one of my usual rounds pawnshop, and to my surprise they had a Sheraton II hanging on the wall. I pulled it off the wall, and looked for the serial number inside the f-hole,and on the back of the headstock. There wasn't one, and then I noticed the neck was a 5 piece neck. It was THEN I realized I might be holding a very late '89 or a '90/'91 Sheraton. I did a quick search on my phone, and to my surprise, I was an '89,'90,or '91 . They had it priced for $500 with changed out tuners, Stop Bar Tailpiece, and a neck pickup with missing balance string to string adjustment screws. With both the bridge and tailpiece being pretty tarnished, and above issues, I decided to ask for a hefty discount. I decided to check for pricing on sheratons at all GC's in Texas, and the happened to be a newer one at my local GC in really good stock shape for $369. I showed the manager the price of the Sheraton II's price at the local GC, and convinced him I'd REALLY rather buy this one if the gave me a really good price. I offered $200 and he countered with $277, and I agreed to the price. I put it on layaway for $30, and I'll pick it up in 2 weeks after a guitar I have on FB Marketplace sells. So after taking pics, and doing some research, I've decided it's either a '90 or '91. The upgraded tuners and Stop Bar Tailpiece are both Schaller products. The tuners are M6 mini tuners , and the Stop Bar Tailpiece is a 492 Quick Change Tailpiece. Both the tuners and Tailpiece are about a $220-$250 upgrade. I'm even thinking that the pickups might be humbucker upgrades. Anyway here's some pics I took of it at the pawnshop.
