Topic: for sale - Ephiphone Sheraton hollow-body electric guitar, Cambridge

I bought this new in about 1998 about 2 years later I found an Ibanez that was more suited to bands I was playing in at the time. It was used in about 1.5 bands, and 'gigged' less than 5 times. Since then its been mostly in its case, or in my room where its been a useful guitar for writing riffs on but not much else, as I've always ended up using my Kawai in recent years too, as I'm less precious about that when rockin out.

These are really nice guitars, Korean made (I think) and are played by Ted Leo, plus a bunch of musicians you probably don't care about (Oasis, Kings of Leon, John Lee Hooker apparently). Also I think I saw Rosie Lewis from Newcastle use one once, when she supported Mirah in Salford.

The downside with this instrument is it currently has a dodgy output socket. This will probably take some work with there being no screw-on back to remove, and I've just not got the motivation to do this whilst it's gathering dust (metaphorically!) anyway. Also it hasn't been set-up since I purchased it, so probably a guitar wizz out there - or someone who knows one - will be in the best position to buy this. It's not cosmetically perfect - does have a bit of fingerboard dirt, scratches (on the back, I must have played it wearing a belt once) and that thing the gold parts do when they just haven't been polished, hopefully the images will give you an idea.

I'm after around £300 for it but I've got a few watched on ebay and may adjust my expectations accordingly. It comes with a lovely hard case (pictured) which may have been new or 2nd hand from the shop, I'm not sure. I'm not posting it so we'll have to arrange collection; if Cambridge is off your map somewhat, I could easily meet Kings Cross or Ely (attn Norwich/Notts etc) stations.

probably best emailing if you're interested, anthonysaunders67 *at* gmail (dot) com

Thanks!

Re: for sale - Ephiphone Sheraton hollow-body electric guitar, Cambridge

So amazingly these can still sell on ebay for £350

though this one fitted with Gibson pickups made £100 less.

This one has a little tone pot problem, and is on £285

So obviously I'm open to offers below £300, will go on Gumtree soon if no response on here. Guess the c is immune to the current wave of Oasis nostalgia.
