Description & Specs

THE SHERATON

The Sheraton was Gibson’s response to guitarists who wanted a classic archtop, with the ability to push their tone into overdrive. Based upon Les Paul’s original “The Log” design, the Sheraton is built with a solid block down the body center. This gives the instrument control enough to be driven hard, without endless feedback.

 Epiphone has been a household name with artists and players alike for over 120 years. Creating some of the most memorable and innovative instruments of our time, it’s classic arch top guitars have remained ubiquitous in rock ’n roll lore.

From Epiphone:

John Lee Hooker described the original Sheraton as an "outdid-335" for its striking fingerboard inlay, classic shape, and elegant ivory and black binding on the top, back, neck, headstock and f-holes. The new Sheraton-II PRO has the same profile and is made from Laminated Maple and topped with a bound "Tortoise" style pickguard with a signature metal "E" (for Epiphone!) and the same classic binding.

The Sheraton-II PRO has a hand-set 5-piece laminated hard Maple/Walnut 24.75" scale neck with a beautiful Rosewood fingerboard with block and triangle pearloid and abalone inlays, 22 medium jumbo frets, and a large vintage style "tree of life" motif "Clipped Ear" headstock. The Epiphone Sheraton-II PRO also now comes with the new Graphtech® NuBone XL™ nut that is as hard as bone but will last a lifetime without chipping or cracking. Graphtech molds and engineers each NuBone XL™ nut for consistent tone and string balance as well as precise string spacing.

ProBucker™ Humbuckers

The Epiphone Sheraton™ II-PRO now features new critically acclaimed ProBucker™ humbuckers. The first humbuckers were made at the Epiphone/Gibson factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan in the late 50s and have acquired a mythical status among guitar players. Epiphone ProBucker pickups have that elusive tone because they are made with the same alloy as the originals--18% Nickel Silver unit bases and covers--along with Sand cast Alnico II magnets and high quality 4-conductor lead wire. Each ProBucker pickup is also vacuum wax potted to eliminate microphonics.

The Epiphone Sheraton-II PRO has a ProBucker-2™ in the neck position and a slightly hotter ProBucker-3™ in the lead position. Both pickups also have coil-splitting via their individual volume controls. coil-splitting allows a player to turn a humbucker pickup into a single coil pickup for endless tone combinations. Each ProBucker pickup's volume and tone control use 1" 500K Ohm potentiometers along with a 3-way pickup selector with an ivory-colored toggle cap.

Like all Epiphone instruments, the guitar comes with Gibson’s famous Limited Lifetime Warranty.

    We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

    If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

    If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

    Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us.

    We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas.
