by Steve C. from New MexicoBought this guitar (in sunburst) from Sweetwater a few days ago. All I can say is that it looks/sounds/plays better than any semi-hollow I have ever picked up!

I had an Epi Dot Deluxe, and the Dot did not even hold a candle to this Sheraton. This guitar is worth the extra money by far! Get the Epi case, as well...it's a great case!
better than the high priced
by Wolfman63 from OhioI've had both Gibson and Epi Es 335's and none of them came out of the box perfect. That said, I'll say this: You can pay thousands for the "real thing" and take the chance of being disappionted, or ... read more [+]try an Epiphone, set it up if necessary, and enjoy the guitar. Or you could whine and moan about the Epi having to have a bunch of unnecessary mods to make it more like the Gibson. I had a great Epi Dot and figured the "real" 335 would be even better, co I bought one. Then came the disappointment I mentioned earlier. Worst guitar (for the price) I've ever owned. Got rid of it and went back to Epiphone. Go on and talk about "tone" all you want. A lot of the tone comes from the guy holding the guitar. close [-]

Love my Sheraton!

You do have to be careful not to get a Chinese made Sheraton II as the quality is just not there. Make sure it's made in Korea.

In my opinion this guitar is a great starting point for something far more beautiful. The pickups, electronics, and tuning machines were standard Epiphone quality on this guitar to start, but with a little work and a little love I've turned my guitar into a truly beautiful instrument.
My guitar is now fitted with new pickups (Gibson 57 Classic and 57 Classic plus at the bridge), a nickel nashville bridge and all nickel hardware, 500k Gibson volume pots, a new input jack, a custom cut bone nut and Gibson Deluxe pearloid machine heads. I found that it also really benefited from a good fret polish right off the bat too.
This guitar now has so much sustain that it's hard to think of it as a semi-hollow. Even fully stock it was great. But, with a little love and some decent money this guitar has been transformed into something that sounds absolutely amazing and looks 10 times more beautiful than a 335. Just look at the inlay job on the headstock for goodness sake! Gorgeous!
This guitar has a lot of character and even though I've been traditionally a Gibson only man I'm gladly flying the Epiphone flag on this one. Fingers crossed that the E on the pick guard will stay glued on though! close [-]
