I guess this is a Sheraton he's playing at 4:19. Never seen one with a trapeze tail piece like that.

Very good question , i have never seen any red sheraton with block inlays. Tbh even more honest i have never seen any red sheraton.

I guess its an very old one model sheraton 1 because it doesnt have the stoptailpiece but iam also very curious about this one.

I'd love to know the details of that guitar, but if I never find out I really don't care because I've listened to this video about 20 times in a row and it's f**king mega. 8)

But, on a side note, does anyone know how Gem gets those lead notes towards the end that sound almost backwards? I'm sure it's a pedal, but I'm not very familiar with reverse effect devices. Anyone know?

Found something on google about the sheraton:

Its one from around 1966 and it costs 5000-6000 dollar , so you will have to break a bank.
It has mini humbuckers as you can see.
This is the one , only with different tailpiece:

yeah, that looks almost just like it, except for the tailpiece like you said. And also, the pickguard looks black on the one Gem is playing.Or maybe it's just the lighting. On another note, that Gruhn place where you got the pics from, is about an hour from my house. :lol: They helped me find out some things about my old Epiphone acoustic. Not George Gruhn himself of course, but one of the people that work there. Pretty cool.
