High-Quality Semi-Hollow with PAF-Like Pickups

First introduced by Epiphone in 1958, the fabulous Sheraton has seen a number of evolutions over the years, but they all stayed true to the core features of the guitar. These include the luxurious body binding, headstock and fretboard inlays, and even the fixed bridge (originally a Frequensator tail piece, which was replaced by a Stop Bar in 1986).

With features like those you'd be forgiven for expecting this guitar to cost a small fortune, but thankfully you can now own it for a fantastic price!

Epiphone Sheraton-II Pro

With this latest incarnation of the Sheraton you get that tried-and-tested thin-line, laminated maple semi-hollow body with all of the trimmings, with a set of ProBucker pickups, a Graphtech NuBone XL nut, and a gorgeous Midnight Sapphire finish.

ProBucker Pickups

Specially designed and constructed with only the highest quality components, and taking plenty of inspiration from the legendary PAF humbuckers of the 1950s, these ProBucker pickups sound simply phenomenal.

Sitting in the neck position you have a ProBucker-2 which delivers a vintage, PAF-like neck tone, complete with rich mid-frequencies, that's simply perfect for those creamy guitar solo's PAF's are renowned for.

At the bridge you have a ProBucker-3. This pickup is as stark and growly as you could want a bridge 'bucker to be, and sounds simply killer when you crank the gain levels up.

Both of these pickups work phenomenally well when combined with the natural resonance and sustain of the Epiphone Sheraton-II Pro's semi-hollow body, making the guitar suitable for a wide range of musical styles, such as Jazz, Blues, Rock, Indie, Pop, and even some Metal!

High-End Electronics

As if that legendary PAF-like sound alone wasn't quite enough, the electronics in the Epiphone Sheraton-II Pro give you even more tonal options in the form of coil-splitting.

Simply raise the corresponding Volume Control (Neck or Bridge) and it will split the humbucker into a single coil pickup, giving you plenty of tonal combinations to play around with.

Premium Appointments

One of the Sheraton's stand-out elements, from it's 1958 debut through to today, is the array of elegant additions to the neck, body, and headstock. These include Block and Triangle fret inlays made from abalone/mother of pearl, an Ivory and Black binding to the body, neck, headstock, and f-holes, and even gold-finished hardware.

Long-time Sheraton player and legendary bluesman John Lee Hooker once described the original Sheraton as an "outdid-335", and with good reason - this is the kind of bling you'd usually only find on guitars towards the top end of the market.
