    PRICE DROP $1,449.00

    Natural 2003 Epiphone Elite Sheraton Semi Hollow Archtop Made in Japan
    Alot of bang for the buck!


    First year of the Elite Elitist line of guitars 2003-2008. Apparently Ovation guitars didn't like Epiphone using the "Elite" name. Copyright infringement. So the change to "Elitist".

    Excellent Condition; My luthier cleaned her up, polished the frets...... D'Addario NYXLs 12s.

    The bridge appears to be have been replaced with nylon saddles. The guitar has been played and very well taken care of. IMO the combination of age and being played has made the tone most excellent for this guitar.

    Note: There is a bump in the top of the headstock. It was touched up. You can't see it in the front or back headstock photos. Also, there is a very small, 2-3 1/16", strait scratch at the f-hole on the base side. Apparently you can't see it in the photos.

    That would make more sense. Shipping weight would also include the case. And remember-all that bubble wrap is HEAVY!

    The bridge appears to be have been replaced with nylon saddles.

    I wonder if it's possible to find original saddles or a replacement bridge for this guitar?

    I suppose so. I replaced my entire bridge, because I wanted a different alloy. It's metric. I forget if the original was gotoh, but I have a vague recollection that it was Japanese made and not the regular Gibson one. Which is a plus for me.

    Also, quit trying to get me to buy this guitar, I already have one I'd love to mod it but don't have the heart to, given their relative rarity. But some filter trons might be cool. Even full humbuckers just to have a way better 335. But they are so cool and special as is. Truly the best guitar ever.

    I'm assuming this has the fairly shallow neck profile, yes?

    I don't have calipers to measure the neck. However, on line website reports first fret .83 and the 12th fret .91.

    For comparison I have a PRS SE hollowbody II piezo guitar with a reported "fat wide" neck. The Sheraton is definitively a shallow neck profile in comparison.

    To be honest I really didn't notice the neck profile so much because of how it sounds and plays.
