Similarly to other archtops in the Epiphone lineup, the Sheraton II Pro now benefits from a pair of new ProBucker pickups, Graphtech NuBone XL nut and a vintage aesthetic appointment package that make this one of the most desirable, budget semi-hollowbodies available. The coil-tapping capabilities of the ProBuckers open up endless tonal possibilities, built with the same alloys as the originals of the late 50s for outstanding vintage tone.
Praised by Blues Guitar legend John Lee Hooker, the Epiphone Sheraton is widely regarded as one of the best value semi hollowbodied guitars on the market.
An all-maple body and top form the foundation for bright, acoustic tone, with traditional f-hole cutaways that allow it to resonate and breathe in true hollowbody style. The 24.75” scale neck is hand-set and made of 5-piece laminated hard Maple/Walnut with a beautiful Rosewood fingerboard with block and triangle pearloid and abalone inlays, 22 medium jumbo frets, and a large vintage style “Clipped Ear” headstock with the classic “tree of life” motif.
Hailed by blues legend John Lee Hooker as "an out-did 335," the Sheraton has been renown for decades for its combination of superior tone and beautiful pearloid and abalone inlay. Originally released in 1959, the inspiration for the "thin-line" or ES series has its roots in Les Paul's first solidbody guitar, "The Log," that Les built in Epiphone’s factory in Manhattan in 1940.
