The most weird thing of all, is something that I discovered by accident.
On the back of the headstock barely readable..says "Made in USA". I tried to potograph the "made in USA" part but it was really hard... The guitar dater project spit out: Your guitar was made in Korea October c.1980 Production Number: 0497 but it sometimes justs says "something" when it has a serial number that it can't read. There appears to be remnants of longhand writing between the SN sticker and the top of the headstock...looks like the last two letters of the top word are "de" (Made?
USA made Epis would never have a serial # on a sticker, nor would they have Japanese tuners.
The 80s MIJ Sheratons had serial #s engraved and painted on the back of the headstock.
Epiphone was a family business that was created in 1873.

appeared on the first Korean Sherrys, they stopped in 1988 (maybe early 1989).
I really like the creme pickup rings and switch knob.
