I Play all genres of music..Jazz is my style..Found my Epiphone Sheraton in a flea market for 400.00 bucks.I've owned it for 10 years and I don't have any regrets.This one was made in Korea. Super tone ..comfortable neck.The instrument itself sounds darn good unamplified and for old seasoned players like myself that's a good indication of what it would sound like plugged in.I did upgrade my pick-ups w/Sduncans and had a custom bridge carved from rosewood and will be upgrading my pots...but...

Recently I bought a Gibson SG. I think I paid about double money just for a little bit more of sound quality. I love my Sheraton 6 years old because is an awesome guitar for its price. Good for blues,jazz, rock and more... IMO a bit heavy to play stand up but its weight adds a good sustain. (read more)

One of the more polished 335 alikes from Epiphone.
Similar in quality to the BB King Lucille model in finish, well worth a look and play if you want a 335 type box.
Versatile for Jazz sounds, rock like Ted Nugent, and all round playability.
Available at a great price from lots of places.
I have had mine for 12 years and its going nowhere else! (read more)

The Epiphone Sheraton II is easier to get my playing fingers around the neck than any other guitar I've used, thus easier to play and to play fast . It's the guitar John Lennon walloped on stage, yet nobody could hear him, I wonder why ? (read more)

my Epiphone Sheraton II guitar was a natural finish MIC i believe, sounds great good sustain, finish is good, can't see dings easily in a natural but looks beautiful, pickups sound good but its all to do with the amp. bits loose but u can tighten everything, the gold wore out quickly but i dont mind it looks used.
very well made guitar should stand the test of time if it has been taken care of. (read more)

I've got one of these Epiphone Sheraton II guitars the neck is the best I've ever come across.
However the only thing is the sg has got much more sustain and probally better toggle switches. (Gibson don't appear to really set up their guitars it needs a decent set up)e.
Don't get me wrong the sg is a grate guitar. But the epip I bought is already set up ready to go.
If your buying a gibson that should be done! (read more)

The neck of the Epiphone Sheraton II is nice and narrow considering size of guitar, the rounded shape of neck is fitting to my shovel style hand shape, the sheraton made me feel like a guitar playing grown up! First time for everything. The deep tones and versatility of different sounds are unbelievable. Oh and I fell in love with it when I bought it, lets face it beauty is only skin deep but when you look at something like an sg... ugly is to the bone! Rest my case. (read more)

Beautifuly looking guitar and very well made. Very versatile in terms of tone. Beautifully warm and full body sounds. Sounded great through my Ashdown Peacemake 40 watt valve combo or my Peavey Bandit 112 Transtube combo. Just a great sounding guitar and a joy to play.
I've played my friends Gibson 335 and it was not far off in terms of sound and playability. A lot of guitar for your money. One I would definately recommend. (read more)

My guitar instuctor has an early 80s gibson 335, it falls short of that in sound only and not by that much. I just compared my Epi to a Heritage H535 and I'm telling you the Epi won in sound, the heritage felt a little better on electronics knobs etc, but that was it. No way would i buy any other hollowbody for the money it was a steal, if i put some Wolfetone pickups in it I'm sure it would be neck in neck with the Gibson for a third of the price. (read more)

I have a sheraton 11 john lee hooker model with N.Y. minis. I bought it on a whim; I wanted a hollow body. 400. 00 bought it with a nice case. The only thing I have played that I thought played better was the "fretless wonder". I would have never guessed. I was a strat man (high dollar) but this guitar rocks! I know it differs between people but the neck is shaped perfect for me. Made me a better player. I now seek a 56 lp epi. Maybe it was just a fluke but I'd buy another. Sounds awsome ... (read more)
