The Epiphone Sheraton II offers fantastic looks and classic semi-hollowbody tone. The gold hardware and body/neck/headstock binding really make this guitar stand out, but don't be fooled -- there's more to the Sheraton than just beauty. The Sheraton's got a pair of humbucking pickups and a semi-hollowbody design that captures the best features of both solidbody and hollowbody guitars. The cavity of the Sheraton II is mostly open, but includes a solid wood block in the center, allowing the guitar more resonance and sustain while still providing the open, warm tones of a jazz box. It's also got a three-piece set maple neck with a rosewood fretboard, so it plays like a dream too.

Epiphone Sheraton II: Where'd Version II Come In?

The Epi Sheraton has always been a well-regarded guitar, but the original version featured an old vintage tailpiece, the Frequensator. The Frequensator was an assymetrical tailpiece that allowed for a longer string length on the Sheraton's three bass strings. However, this old design would crack fairly often (owing to its thin construction and string tension), requiring the use of a replacement tailpiece. Epiphone saw fit to replace this tailpiece on the Sheraton II with a classic stop bar tailpiece, and afterward the Sheraton's profile rose significantly. This guitar has come a long way from its roots, and is now one of the more popular semi-hollow guitars employed by indie rockers, including Ezra Koenig (Vampire Weekend), Matt Followill (Kings of Leon), and Brian Aubert (Silversun Pickups). Of course, it goes without saying that this is a great guitar for the more traditionally minded, too - after all, this is the guitar John Lee Hooker was best known for.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great guitar for the money, I own two and play both constantly!"
Sound: sounds warm and round Feature: everything works great on both of mine Ease of Use: easy to play.. changed the nut to bone in one and ebony in the other Quality: made solid.. no issues.. survived the 1994 earthquake in Los Angeles very well Value: This is way worth the price even if you upgrade some parts Manufacturer Support: NO The Wow Factor: I love it.. wanted it to play jazz on. Each one is different. Played all of them at the Guitar Center in Hollywood. Picked the two best. One natural and one brown sunburst type.. Overall: Great axe.. wouldn't trade it for anything. Just a fine value.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Epiphone Sheraton II...Everymans 335"
Overall: I've played guitar for 22 years and made a decent living off of it from time to time. I've also had several high end American made instruments, but with all my experience I've never found anything like the Sheraton II by Epiphone. I had been wanting to invest in a full sized semi-hollowbody for some time now, and I had looked at all the big name manufacturers before deciding to go with the Sheraton II. Hearing alot of online reviews and reports from various forums, as well as seeing several touring musicians play one live really sold me on the instrument...I'm at the point in my life that I don't want to drop 3k on an instrument to play in bars and clubs , but I still want it to look and especially SOUND like I did. This guitar does that in spades. When I unboxed it the natural finish was beautiful and caught the light just right. I went over the guitar with a fine tooth comb, there were no flaws in finish binding glue marks...anything. When I tuned it up the Grover tuners had that nice smooth but firm resistance that says quality and stability. I plugged it into my tube amp and switched from standby and was blown away by the smooth warm tone of the guitar, even with the factory pickups. A click of overdrive and a flick to the bridge brought out a lot more bite that I expected-a pleasant surprise-but no unwanted feedback. The neck has a smooth soft "D" shape much like a Les Paul Standard and the fret work is flawless. I would happily play this instrument next to any other semi-hollowbody at any price, and I am so pleased I plan to purchase another in the immediate future. If you have any doubts, just go ahead and buy it. You won't be disappointed.
