Epiphone Sheraton-II PRO Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Distinct semi-hollowbody tone
  • Epiphone ProBuckers deliver fat jazz tones and more
  • Epiphone quality
Distinct semi-hollowbody tone

If you've ever listened to any rock or blues from the '60s, you've heard the classic tone you'll find in the Epiphone Sheraton-II PRO. The phrase "bell-like" is most appropriate here, with notes that spring to life and then gently decay into a long sustain - perfect for leads and solos. While the tone can get bright and aggressive if you need it to, it's the warm and smooth overdriven tones that made its predecessor, the ES-335, such a popular guitar for blues and jazz styles. You'll get the same vintage vibe from the Epiphone Sheraton-II PRO.

Epiphone ProBuckers deliver fat jazz tones and more

Epiphone's Sheraton-II PRO is packing Epiphone ProBucker pickups, a 4-wire design with coil-tapping inspired by Gibson's legendary BurstBuckers. ProBuckers conjure the sound of the original hand-wound PAF humbuckers designed by Seth Lover at Gibson's Kalamazoo factory in the late 1950s. ProBuckers have all the same components under the hood as the original PAF and BurstBuckers, including Alnico II magnets, Elektrisola magnet wire, 18 percent nickel silver unit bases and covers, as well as pole screws, slugs, and bobbins built to original Gibson spec. You get a huge sounding pickup that is responsive to your pick attack, and that - over time - will develop the subtle, unique characteristics that you can only get from vintage humbuckers.

Epiphone quality

Since Epiphone's founding in 1873, they've produced innumerous iconic instruments. From long before the British Invasion of the early 1960's, to metal, punk, thrash, grunge, and what have you, the Epi logo has stood for quality and value. Epiphone backs up their products with their Limited Lifetime Warranty so you can rest assured that your Epiphone Sheraton-II PRO semi-hollowbody electric guitar will give you a lifetime of tasty tone and playing enjoyment.

Epiphone Sheraton II Pro Ebony

I have been interested in the Sheraton for many years. Finally decided to buy one. Very comfortable guitar to play. The pickups have a good range for playing blues, jazz, pop and rock. I played it at a gig for the first time shortly after it was delivered and I got a lot of nice compliments. It was delivered in good condition and overall the workmanship is great. Sweetwater service is great as always.

Good Bang For Your Buck

I suppose I should preface this by mentioning I'm far from professional, nor am I much of a guitar snob. I like to play for fun and jam with some friends here and there. That being said, this guitar is perfect for that, and probably much more. I know there are a few big bands out there touring with these, (Kings of Leon, Silversun Pickups, etc). So I would have to assume that they are relatively durable and gig worthy instruments. There are some binding flaws around the body, nothing serious, but you can see where it gets "thin" in some spots. The Heel(?) where the neck meets the body is a little bumpy. It's not finish bumps, it seems like the wood was unevenly sanded down in that area. This could be isolated to my particular example. It's not horrible, but i noticed it right away when i took it out of the box. It doesn't bother me because the playability and tone outweigh the cosmetic flaws by far. The little "e" on the pick guard fell off too. So, on to the good stuff. This thing plays very nicely. outstanding action and setup. I let it sit for a night to acclimate to the house temp/humidity before I went through it. I put my favorite strings on, set the intonation, tightened up the truss rod and dropped the bridge a little bit. So far I can say I really like this guitar. The pickups are decent, and I think I'll keep them in there for a bit. The pots are smooth and quiet, and the switch seems stout. I wasn't huge on the idea of coil splitting, but after playing with it for a little while, it's pretty cool. Running both pickups as single coils at the same time sounds neat. All in all, this thing is well worth the price tag, and I'm happy with my decision. Sweetwater was great as usual, it was well packaged and arrived unscathed from the rigors of Holiday shipping.

Sheraton ii The Best kept Secret

This guitar Blows my mind ! I have the 2014 edition with the classic 57 clone pickups, i believe that is the only difference oh they use the regular Gibson plexed nut on the 2014 instead of the tusq .This guitar is just Great it plays great! it sounds great.. I paid $550 for mine in 2014 i had to put on a rollar bridge to get the intonation perfect (extra$35) and i had to have some frets leveled and proper set up (anther $80) i was gonna swap out the pick ups but i could not find pick ups that sounded as good as these under $200 a set.. I couldn't believe it was perfect after the setup, even out of the box it was playable just had some buzzing. I have the string hight at 3/64th at the 12th fret bass E string and 2/64th at the high E The neck they called a C is really a D and it is perfect it is the one major difference then the Memphis 335 which is more a thick C. In the end i paid $645 and it plays and sounds just as good as the G Memphis 335 which was going for $1600 in 2014. This has become my number one go to guitar my strat gets a quarter of the playing time that it used to.. Like i said this guitar is a well kept secret and you can tell word has gotten out because they raised the price this year where all other guitars went down in price, if you like this axe get it now before they become next to the gib in price.

Sheraton Pro II

Long time player, that has played professionally for many years (over 40 to be more precise.) I've owned countless of guitars in the past. Just saying, this aint my first time at this Rodeo.Recently decided to give the Sheraton II another try as I like the feel and tone that semi hollows offer, but going in 5~$6k deep for a Gibson isn't really something I am interested in doing at this time. Also, I had a Sheraton II from the mid/late 90s, so I wanted to see how these new ones staked up.Out of the box, I did notice right off that the frets were in need of a polish, and about 8 or 9 frets that required some additional. I don't see this as a huge negative in my review as this is all very dependent on the specific setup each individual player needs.The bone nut is a nice added touch, and mine came regulated nicely. Open chord intonation is clean, no binding at the nut during tuning or note bends.The hardware is all much better than the predecessors. Grover tuners as standard issue, with better vol/tone pots negate the need to worry about upgrading those as was typical in the past. Backing off the volume on either pickup does not drop the high end off, so the tone stays pretty crisp without getting muddy on you.The coil splits are nice addition, but don't be misguided with the idea you're going to be able to nail tele or strat like tones from the coil spits. That is just not going to happen. Regardless, you will no doubt appreciate the variations you can get with the Pro Buckers and the Coil splitters. When pushing some volume through a few good tube amps the pickups do a good job at resisting feed back.Over all the balance is pretty good while playing seated. Despite what appears to be quite large headstock there is no dive that I notice. You'll want a wide strap, like a Levy strap with the brushed leather will offer a nice grip on your shoulder for standing.Since the Epi case was not available, I went with a Gator GC335 which is not a perfect fit. It's a bit too deep and too long, A few pieces of black foam on the bottom of the case and along the bottom edge of the case solved fit problem. The proper Epiphone case is probably the way to go.I would recommend this guitar to any intermediate or advanced player. It's very hard to find a lot to complain about at well under $1k out the door, case / tax etc.

Great service and excellent product

I just received my Sheraton II Pro. Everything was in perfect conditions.The guitar looks glorious, and is very well set-up; the action is great; no buzzing frets; the sound from all pickups is balanced and smooth. The frets need some smoothing up, but I view that as a very minor adjustment that I will take care of promptly.This is not my first time ordering from Sweetwater, and I will keep using them in the future.I'm very happy with the quality of their service and merchandise, with their personal touch and high standards.
