About the Epiphone Sheraton

The Epiphone Sheraton is an Epiphone original. Based on a Gibson ES-335 but more ornate, blues players such as John Lee Hooker loved the Epiphone Sheraton more than any other guitar.

This is a semi-acoustic guitar. It has two f-holes in the body and an inner center block of Maple to thicken the tone and help fight feedback at high volume.

The Sheraton comes in a variety of finishes, all with gold hardware, abalone & pearloid fingerboard inlays. It also has an ornate vine heastock inlay, a feature that harks back to the original Epiphone guitars of the 1930s. The pickups on the Sheraton II Pro are upgraded ProBuckers, designed to sound like prized vintage units. This is a classic Epiphone semi acoustic guitar.

Frequently Asked Questions about Epiphone Sheraton Guitars

Question: What is the difference between an Epiphone Sheraton II Pro and the Epiphone Dot?
There are a few distinguishing differences between the Epiphone Sheraton Pro II and the Dot. Most obvious is the decoration: the Dot is fairly utilitarian with only humble 'dot' inlays and a subtle inlay on the headstock. The Sheraton has a complex vine inlay on the headstock, multiple-ply binding, gold hardware and large block fingerboard inlays made of pearloid and abalone. The Sheraton II has upgraded pickups with coil splitting options for extra single coil sounds. This makes the Sheraton II Pro a more versatile guitar.
Question: Does the Sheraton II Pro have upgraded pickups?
Yes, the Epiphone Sheraton II Pro has Epiphone ProBucker pickups. These are excellent Alnico II units designed by Epiphone in Nashville in order to achieve a boutique PAF sound in an affordable guitar.
Question: Is this guitar only for Blues playing?
Defintely not. The Epiphone Sheraton II is an extremely versatile guitar. It has been seen in the hands of players as diverse as Kings of Leon's Matthew Followill and Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor.
