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.

Beyond expectations

This guitar is everything I expected and more. The quality is excellent and it plays superbly. The sustain is awesome; as good as my friend's 335 and the time is hard to discriminate between the two. The split coil pickups offer huge dimension in tone capabilitie. The setup from Sweetwater was spot on.If you've ever wanted a 335 and couldn't afford one, wait no more. I am truly amazed.

I would put this guitar up against any similar guitar at 3 times the price anytime anywhere any type of music. It makes some of those high dollar guitars seem sooo over rated.

Sheraton II Pro

I chose this guitar after shopping for several full, and semi-hollow body guitars. I looked at Gibson, Gretsch, PRS, and Epiphone. I explored several models by each manufacturer. I am so glad I bought this guitar! The finish is impeccable. The fretboard is smooth and seamless. The sound is stellar. I own several expensive Gibson's, but may only buy Epiphones from this point forward. What a TERRIFFIC guitar! And the price is exceptional! I own nine total, and this may now be my favorite. Epiphone you amaze me! And Sweetwater always comes through! The set up on the guitar was quite precise. Harmonics and tonality are dialed in. You guys did leave me one screw slightly unscrewed on the pick guard, probably just to remind me that no ones perfect, which I promptly and easily tightened. Can't say enough good things about you guys at Sweetwater. This is my third guitar from you, and am always impressed with Derek and his crew. Keep up the good work guys. Now if you could find me a brand new 2014 Koa top honey burst Les Paul, I would really be happy! Have a great holiday guys!

Great Guitar!

I've been stalking this model guitar for several years, as I fell in love with it's looks long ago, but the latest version with all the improvements to the pickups, tapping, nut, etc., made me pull the trigger. Mine is in natural, with a very even grain appearance front, back and sides. I wished it came in figured maple, but I don't miss it too much with this guitar since it looks so freakin good the way it is! I am absolutely satisfied with all aspects of the guitar. Fit and finish as good as you'll see anywhere - the inlay work on the neck and headstock is just gorgeous and unique [also wish they'd put 2 more inlays further up the neck though]. I took the pickguard off mine, and just put the 2 small screws back in the holes - to me, that only improved it's already outstanding looks. I have many other guitars like Fenders, Rickenbackers, etc., and a 2013 Gibson Les Paul Standard, which I will compare this to. I am also running them through Vox AC30, Mesa Boogie Rectoverb 25, and Subway Rocket amps.First, the pickups sound very good and very similar to the LP in terms of response and overall tone - I did not find myself wishing I had the LP pu's in the Sheraton by any means. Although both guitars have coil taps, I actually vastly preferred the sound of the Sheraton's to the LP here - I know that may raise a few eyebrows, but it wasn't even close. The Sheraton's tapped tone on both pickups are much more "single coil" sounding, with great clarity on all strings, and a bright, but not a thin or piercing tone, plus it retains the low end - this is my favorite setting for most rhythm work and some clean or distorted leads. I only wished the LP tapped sounded anywhere near this good - they frankly don't sound at all like single coils in that position. Full coil/humbucking positions on both guitars are very warm, full, good clarity, with strong output, with the Sheratons being very slightly warmer, fuller sounding in the lows and low mids. About what you'd expect, and want with a semi-hollow design. One advantage of this design and guitar, is the way it generated feedback with distorted [and even clean settings] on the amps. I needed a lot more gain [loudness] to get it from the LP, and although not bad, it wasn't quite as musical. The feedback with the Sheraton was very musical, and easy to control at modest volume settings - I could "play" the feedback in complimentary ways - it sounded very harmonically "right"; not as harsh or distracting as it can be on other solid body guitars where the feedback comes more from the pickups instead of the guitar's body. This could be harder to control and more of a liability in a louder, higher gain stage context, however. Not a problem for me, as these days I play mostly in smaller venues, parties, and churches where stage volume is much lower. For louder hard rock gigs though, I'd probably take the LP and a Tele/Strat.I can also get some killer, easy vibrato from my right hand shaking the guitar body on sustained notes - much harder to do with the LP or other hard-tail solid bodies. Bottom line, this guitar just sounds outstanding in multiple ways and configurations. Play-ability is also extremely important to me, and this one shines. The neck is as easy and nice to play as the LP's [which is Plek'd, I don't think the Sheraton is]. The neck thickness is about identical to the LP, which feels perfect to me; not too thick, not at all thin, but feels very substantial. This also helps the guitar's excellent sustaining characteristics. Set up was very close to what I like, and many would be happy just as it came from SW. I made only a few slight adjustments to the action height and intonation. With the double cutaway, upper fret access is a little easier than the LP, but don't get a strap that's too wide at the neck end, as it will tend to get in the way of your left hand as it moves beyond the 12th fret.Value for the price is simply incomparable! This is my first Epiphone, but I've since ordered 2 other limited edition models - no reason to think their quality isn't going to be every bit as good as a Gibson like this one is. I love my LP, but as a guitar player since I was 10 [I'm 60 now], this one is as good as any in my collection and better than a lot of them. Covers and nails more sounds and styles from one guitar than any of the others too, so it's my go-to ax when I can only take one to gigs. Btw, the Epiphone case is very plush inside and very close to the quality and build of the LP's Gibson case at 1/2 the price, well worth the 100 bucks. So if you're looking to add a semi-hollow style guitar with killer looks and versatile sounds to your collection that isn't ridiculously expensive, getting the Sheraton-II Pro is a no-brainer. I absolutely love mine.

As good as my Gibson! A Little neck-heavy.

Just got it; did a shoot-out with my Gibson ES335 through an old Peavey Classic 50 410. Feels slightly heavier. A little neck heavy. I usually solve this by getting a suede leather strap for neck-heavy guitars. I goofed up- thinking it would include a case. Right now it's sitting in a Gibson HS acoustic case, which works for now. Action was a bit high; lowered it by hand. Intonation sounds near-perfect. Looks better than the Gibson, except to brand name snobs. Sounds as good as the Gibson. Seems like slightly more low-end / warmth out of this Epi. Neck feels like a "D" shape; very consistent up the neck. My Gibson feels like the neck is flatter and gets fatter up the neck. Electronics sound nearly identical. The Epi pull-pots give this guitar an advantage of that single-coil brightness. More sounds / choices than the Gibson. I've played professionally for 40 years. Played lots of styles, lots of records.This Sheriton seems like a smart buy. Tons of quality for a low price. I will sell two other guitars now, since this one arrived. It's that good. The only unknown is how much I will like it at very loud gigs. Will it feedback more or less than the Gibson? We'll see. This is why we all have Strats and Pauls: for the stupid loud gigs.
