Product Description

Color: Natural

Once hailed by Blues Legend John Lee Hooker as "An out-did 335" The Sheraton II from Epiphone combines perfect semi-hollowbody tone with impecable look. Voiced by Alnico Classic Humbucker pickups, this guitar is constructed with a 5-piece Maple neck, traditional Maple Laminate body with a Mahogany center block for amazing tone and sustain. Add a Rosewood fingerboard, and Gold hardware and then make it even more gorgeous with "Tree of Life" headstock inlay and "Block and Triangle" Abalone fretboard inlay.

You can't go wrong with this model.

The Sheraton to me and a couple other people sounded as good as another guitar that cost nearly three times as much.
rey rico
The guitar looks as good as it sounds and plays better than it looks.

I have been playing for 40 years (yikes!). I started playing in the 60's when I was about 13 years old and have played both full time and part time professionally since I was in my early 20's. I have a Les Paul, Gretsch solid body Syncro, 1982 Ibanez AM50, two Fender Strats, a Tele and several acoustics. All these guitars have a sound and style of their own but only one guitar does a little bit of everything. I have had my Sheraton since the late 90's when I bought it used (from the seriel # I find it was made in late 1988). If I am doing a job where I need to have one guitar to cover a large variety of styles (everything from classic rock to light jazz) this is the guitar I will take with me. The neck pick up has a nice smooth mellow and deep sound while the bridge pick up can scream with clear highs. When the two are mixed together (middle position on the 3 way) you can dial in a perfect blend for any music. Put it through a good distortion pedal (A vintage Ibanez TS9 or TS10 is my choice) and you can get a screaming rock or blues sound easily with a ton of sustain and no feedback.
The neck on this guiatar is very Les Paul like in width and depth and you can acheive a very low action (if that's what you are looking for). It's not light but that solid center block helps give you that sustain and tone. It weighs about the same as my Les Paul. My only complaint would be the gold plated pick ups, bridge and stop tail piece. From years of road use and sweat they are now pited and tarnished and no amount of cleaner seems to help. I just ordered a new bridge and stop tail piece and the pickup covers I can live with. I have owned both a Gibson ES-335 and a vintage 1963 ES-330 (trading it for another guitar is a major regret that I still carry). Tone wise this Epiphone Sheraton stands easily with either of those guitars and plays beautifully.
If I had to sell all my guitars except one, this is the one I would keep.

Color Name: Natural
I have had the Sheraton II for a couple of years. It was in need of some basic setup and "re-humidification" after it's stay at Guitar Center. Sometimes your hear complaints about the pickups, but when they are correctly adjusted they are really quite good. The multipiece neck is quite stable and pleasantly chunky in size.
Detail quality is excellent, which is why so many get this guitar when they are searching for a Gibson 335. Why spend the extra $2000? I could not find a 335 without blems and quality finish issues anyway.
This guitar is not my primary guitar, but is the semi-hollow I have wanted. It is good. I have the natural finish, but the sunburst is very attractive.
The tuning machines are adequate, not superb.
Fretboard is excellent, inlays superb, wood is excellent.
I rate this much higher than the Epi Dots I tested.

I am writing this review to primarily address the many reviews I see of this guitar where owners complain about tuning problems with their Sheraton II. I bought mine in 2009 and it was made in Korea at the Unsung factory, possibly the tail end of production before they shifted manufacturing to China. My particular guitar is stunning and I made sure I hand selected for the best looking wood and overall quality against a range of other Sheratons. Before I bought the Sherry I actually did extensive comparisons with Gibson 335's and guess what folks, I found quite a lot of imperfections on the Gibsons and there was little difference between the Sherry and Gibson apart from better hardware, electronics and PU's.

I was prepared to save a lot of money and upgrade my Sherry with stock 57's and improved hardware, pots and harness. For anyone having tuning issues from new, it is not just the Chinese models, my 2009 was hideous and would not stay in tune but the fix is very simple, here is what you do. Understand, the Sheraton nut is made of plastic, not great and you should upgrade it to bone or whatever you fancy when possible. However, in the meantime you need to clean out the nut recesses for the strings because when they are cut at factory they don't clean them out and clear them on the top three strings - this means there are very small bits of rough edges that you can't see. Find a small thin file, make sure not to make the nut grooves any deeper, but just run the file in the grooves and clear out any junk or plastic that is still stuck in there ... yes, I had it on mine.

Now when that is done, shave down some graphite from a pencil, the softer the better ... run the graphite into the grooves of the first three strings in the nut.

Color Name: Vintage Sunburst
I'm no expert but have been playing for almost 30 years. I wanted a guitar that could provide a lot of different sounds and which didn't need to be plugged in all the time, so I got a semi-hollow 335 style. I looked at Dots, but for less than the price of a new Dot (400) there was a Korean 1999 Sheraton II (on Cra-ig-sl-ist). These are a lot nicer than the Dots.

PROS: Very versatile, from mellow jazz through hard rock; the bridge pickup is surprisingly hot; looks great, with gold plated hardware, set neck, finished F-holes, V-inlay fret markers, full binding and the fancy headstock; you don't need an amp to play it -- unplugged it's like a nice muted acoustic; excellent sustain; very lively treble tones (it's all maple except for the fretboard); fantastic smooth and thin D-shaped neck; almost perfect frets (more on that below); stays in tune; fret markers are inlaid perfectly with no gaps; and, as everyone likes to say, good action.

CONS: Heavy; neck heavy, so if you're standing with a strap and let go of it the neck drops down; the top of the neck is kind of narrow for my taste; the gold plating wears off the hardware after a while; there are a few sharp ends on some frets that could use filing down; the volume pots are really only effective in the 5-10 range (lower settings all sound the same); bass tones can get overwhelmed by the lively treble; semi-hollows are tough to work on and repair (some luthiers even charge extra to work on semi-hollows); glossy finish on neck can sometimes cause your hand to drag (satin finish would be smoother); doesn't come with a case; who needs a marker on the first fret?

So everyone gives their guitar 5 stars, right? I'm sure a real Gibson 335 would blow this away, as it should for $3000, but the Sheraton II is a very good and reasonably priced 335 clone. Get a case, which goes for around $80-90 new.
