Product Description

The Epiphone 50th Anniversary 1962 Sheraton Electric Guitar is an incredibly accurate reissue of one of the classic Epiphone designs. The original early '60s Sheraton profile features a laminated maple body with period correct binding, a 5-layer bound tortoise-style pickguard with metal foil "E", and a mahogany neck with a 1960s SlimTaper profile. The rosewood fingerboard has 22 medium jumbo frets, pearloid and Abalone Block and Triangle inlays, and Grover kidney style machine heads.

The 1962 Sheraton reissue's electronics feature CTS potentiometers, Epiphone's non-rotating 1/4-inch output jack, Top Hat knobs with metal inserts, and Gibson USA mini-humbuckers for superior sound. This Epiphone Sheraton comes with your choice of a Frequensator tailpiece or a Tremotone tremelo tailpiece. The reissue Epiphone Tremotone tremolo bar was carefully redesigned to function and look exactly like the original but with subtle improvements to ensure longer life.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (7 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Excellent guitar!"
Overall: Alright, I have been a hollow body and semi-hollow body fanatic since I first picked up a guitar twenty one years ago. I have always wanted a Sheraton, in fact, it was what I had all picked out when I got my first guitar but alas, we could not afford it at the time and I ended up with a great Japanese 83 Telecaster. I still play Tele's a lot but the longing for a Sheraton never left me. It transformed over time into longing for a Gibson ES-335 and I was all set to just buy one of those. Epiphone made a Riviera, another great guitar that they keep fooling around with and I wish they would just keep in their lineup, and I was dying to get a Nick Valensi Riviera but sadly I missed the boat on that one. When this guitar hit the shelves I determined I would not let the opportunity pass me up and I am glad that I did not. After playing this instrument, I am not so sure I even need to pick up a 335 anymore. You can say what you want about the build quality of the Chinese Epiphones and I have seen good and bad myself, but this guitar is top notch. The neck, though listed as a 60s neck, is actually a touch thicker and because of that, it is a very comfortable neck to play for long periods of time. The setup was pretty close to perfect out of the box and everything works great. This guitar is a complete tone monster and will handle any music that I could ever want to play. Mine is finished in Cherry and it just pops. It is a beautiful finish to look at. I saw only one minor bleed over of the finish into the binding at the lower corner of the headstock but other than that, everything was A+. I own three Gibsons and many other guitars and these are on par with anything else that I own. The mini-humbuckers are amazing. I never liked them before but I am sold on them with this guitar. Well worth every single penny and they are only making 1962 of them so if you don't get one, be ready to cough up some serious dough on the secondary market on the auction sites. Additionally, I absolutely love the headstock shape on this guitar. It sets the whole thing off and I love it compared to the shape of the headstock on the Sheraton II, which is a great guitar in it's own right. You cannot go wrong with this guitar. Get one before they are all gone!
Style of Music: Blues, Jazz, Red Dirt Country, Rock, Rock-a-Billy, a little Metal and Hard Rock when I feel like it.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "62 Epi Sheraton Review"
Overall: The Epiphone 62 Sheraton Reissue is simply a work of art. Lets start off with the superb build quality, which is outstanding. This finish is beautiful (Vintage Sunburst) and the binding and inlay work are beautiful and elegantly done. The Gibson Mini New York pickups sound amazing and are really warm but have a nice bright sparkle to them. Run them both together and they produce a nice woody tone, and roll off the tone a bit and its a buttery tone that draws you in so much you get lost. Not kidding. The body feels great and the neck feels very smooth and inviting. One of the best necks I have felt on a new guitar. ( Over the years I have owned over thirty guitars, ranging from Squiers, and Ibanez, to Gibson's and PRS's) This guitar really shines not only with sound and build quality but in its overall vibe, the classic hardware and feel it just exudes this ultra hip vibe, like its little "ghost in the machine" is with it and ready to take you for a ride! Only issue with the guitar I have is that on mine the frets could have been dressed a bit better but it is nothing major. In fact on the overall scope its very minute. Finally the lil extras you get were a nice add on to complete this package; the case is great and looks really nice and vintage, and the cool card and COA pack were very professionally and tastefully done. Great guitar, you will not be disappointed.
Style of Music: Everything.
