Japanese Epiphone acoustic

Posted by Michael Daly on Sun, 01/18/04 - 21:04:13.

I've got an Epiphone acoustic purchased 2nd hand in about 1980 or '81. It's a sunburst top and it has a jumbo body. It says "Sheraton" on the label stuck to the inside back. Anyone know anyhting about this model?

I have a similar Guitar, can't find any info at Epiphone. Jap made, bought it new in 1974 My model number is FT-576BL on the sticker and it too says "Sheraton". Blonde finish. Great sounding guitar plays OK. Looks like a Gibson J 20 series. IF anyone has info, I would appreciate it.

:I also have an Epiphone FT-570SB Sheraton. My father inherited it from my great uncle in the late '70s or early 80's and he gave it to me before he passed away a few years ago. It has a blue Kalamazoo label inside. Interestingly, the first line for "Style" is blank, The second line (with the heading "Epiphone" has the "FT-570SB" typed in, the third line headed "Number" has "Sheraton" typed in. There is no trace of a serial number anywhere. The label also states "guaranty void if number is defaced"! My father claimed it was an old and valuable instrument. It is fairly well made; Good fit, finish, and sound. I'm having very little luck finding any information about this guitar as well.

I have the same FT-570SB Sheraton Jumbo, handed down to me by my father. He purchased early to mid '70s. Could not find anything about the guitar on any sites. Great guitar though. love playing it.
