    Description

    John Lee Hooker Played, Owned and Signed 1966 Epiphone Sheraton Blue Semi-Hollow Body Electric Guitar, Serial # 553752. From humble beginnings in Mississippi, John Lee Hooker rose to become one of the most revered blues men of all time. A fan of 335 style guitars, he had wanted a blue guitar for some time. So, this 1966 Sheraton was sent to the Gibson Custom Shop where it was re-finished in Electric Blue and a Custom Shop decal was added to the back. However, when the guitar was completed and returned, Hooker decided that he didn't like it. So, it was signed and sold. Original tuners are in place but the pickups and hardware have been replaced. Hard case included. Condition: Good. From the Southside Collection. Price Guide Value N/A
