Neck Material:5-pc Layered Hard Maple/Walnut
The Sheraton traces its lineage all the way back to the earliest years of Epiphone being a Gibson owned company in the late 1950s. Whilst its shape, electronics and general build are near identical to the other familiar semi-hollow Gibson offerings, the Sheraton was introduced as a 'blinged up' variant of the ES-335, with ornate inlays and intricate binding separating it from the more modestly adorned semi-hollow bodies already available within the Gibson range. Moving along to Epiphone's production moving to Japan in 1970, the Sheraton was retained as a prime example of the keen attention to build quality that Epiphone have continually dedicated to its products. Many Epiphone aficionados will immediately recognise the Sheraton as weapon of choice for Bonehead of Oasis, whose association has greatly impacted the resale value and collectability of original late 80s models, making them a highly desirable model with fans and collectors.
All the ingredients which make the old models so well regarded are still present and correct in the most recent adaptation of the model: the Sheraton II Pro. Epiphone's ProBucker pickups are dynamic and versatile, and the included coil split options give true single coil tones for added versatility. The option of coil splitting opens up a whole new world of options when it comes to finding the exact tone you're looking for, essentially giving you two guitars in one as you blend traditional Gibson inspired humbucker warmth with the bright, clear chime of a Fender style single coil. For gigging, this gives you the convenience of having all the sounds you need in one guitar, rather than struggling with fitting two or three guitars in the back of your car with your amp and pedal board.
The Sheraton is blessed with many wonderful qualities: its undeniable beauty, its convenient versatility and its bullet-proof build quality. It's little wonder why it has become such an immensely popular model and we struggle to keep them on the shelf when they arrive into stock. Come and visit us instore to try one out today. You will have to be quick, though, they go like hot cakes!
