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.

If you like tone...

Sooo glad I picked this up! Don't let anyone tell you that a Gibson-ES335 is the only way to go. I bought this with the intentions of swapping out the pickups, haven't done so yet. Pick one up if you are like me and like to bounce around between blues, punk, jazz, country and everything else not mentioned. Alden at sweetwater rocks! But dude where's my candy???

Outstanding semi hollow guitar

I've owned two of these now; the first was the blonde I sold to help finance another guitar which I thought I would enjoy but was sadly mistake and sold off. I went for the Vintage Sunburst and have owed it since 2008. It is a wonderful guitar, excellent weight, great tone and the quality control on my Sheraton II was top notch perfect. I could ramble on but let me say this; paint work on the guitar is perfect, the gold colored hardware so far has aged superbly, the tone and volume knobs and the toggle switch and tuners have never failed me. The headstock inlay is gorgeous, the neck is smooth and contoured beautifully. The guitar is perhaps neck heavy as when I let go the neck drops. I hear often the complaint about the "E" on the pick-guard being an annoyance and being pulled off. I guess I'm one of the rare individuals who don't mind it and since the headstock says Epiphone, plus I look at some of The Beatles photos and see the E on their guitars. so I'm good. If you are looking for a es335 style guitar but without the high end price tag, this is the next best thing to that. Hands down a winner.

Outstanding PAF Tones

I 've never played a semi-hollow before and have always wondered what they would bring to the party. Researched the Epiphone ProBucker pickups and liked what I heard. I liked the aesthetics of the Sheraton and, after agonizing over which finish to buy, pulled the trigger on a sunburst.This is a gorgeous guitar. I prefer these elaborate inlays and headstock inlays of the Sheraton Dot. The finish and overall craftsmanship are excellent. The pots have just the right amount of resistance and feel like quality. The tuners hold very well. Bends are silky and the fret ends are smooth and unobtrusive. There is a very minor buzz happening on the low E and A strings, but only when hit moderately and around the 4th fret, so not a huge deal. I may perform a slight truss rod adjustment to see if it goes away, but the action is otherwise low, even up the neck. Nearly perfect. Overall, I am very impressed with the workmanship.The tones are even more impressive. These ProBuckers deliver the PAF tones I hear and love in some of my favorite classic rock and blues rock albums; they compare very well against the Burstbuckers and Classic '57's in my Gibson's. Winners. The tone and volume pots have a great taper and maintain enough high end as I roll down. Lots of tones are available here. Very versatile. As I'm writing this I realize I've not yet tried the coil tapping. I don't plan on using it much, because the humbucker tones are what I'm after here. A couple of nits. The "E" sticker on the pickguard was already coming loose, so I easily peeled off, as it would probably happen anyway. The QR code sticker was a bear to get off. I still need to remove the residue. And it would be nice if a,guitar of this caliber would ship with a case, but you can't have everything. But all in all, I hihly recommend this guitar. I am even considering getting another on in black, because I can see the Epi Sheraton becoming my #1, supplanting my American Fenders, Gibsons, and PRS. It's that good.Special thanks to Andy Miller at Sweetwater for his usual excellent service.
