“Epiphone Sheraton review”

Written on: 18/03/2013

In 92 I wanted a new guitar so I went to the shop to get a Gibson ES-335. I got there saw the sheraton and the joe pass along with the es-335. I loved the jazz sound put out by the emporer but didnt like the feel of the thick guitar anything above the 12th fret. I loved the sheraton and the es-335. They both felt and played the same. Same sound and same quality. I purchased the Sheridan and have never regreted it. I had a 40% off coupon and picked it up for 350.00 what a steal compared to… Read Full Review

“A classic keeper”

Written on: 29/12/2011 by h2g2 (1 review written)

I bought my Sherry2 in 1999 and thought it was average at the time playing it through an old transistor Vox. I always loved the look and feel of it though, and it was much lighter than the solid bodies I'd had. I bought a valve amp in about 2005 and the sound was so much better, but still not what I wanted. Thought of changing pickups and upgrading the bits, including getting a bigger amp etc. In the end I simply went for a professional set up. I couldn't believe it when I got it back… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/01/2011 by Captain Crisps (1 review written)

This is a great guitar failed by cheap hardware. Once you strip it out and re-fit with quality it is a wonderful instrument.

I bought mine in about 1998 thinking I was getting a Casino, would you believe. At that stage I was only a so-so guitarist but it was obvious, even to me, it had much more to give.

Reasons:

* Cheap pickups which lack response, particularly at the bass end
* It constantly goes out of tune
* Open strings sound dull
* The electrics feel sturdy as cobwebs

Unaltered, the… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/01/2011

In the 1970's I bought an Epiphone Riviera red with white binding and chrom hardware,it was my first semi-hollow body; I never gave it a chance to prove it's self,I didn't know much about the instrument in those days. After I learned to play a little better around the late 1980's,I traded the Riviera for a Sheraton wineburst new with a case, I was very satisfied with the trade. It's now 2011 and the Sheraton has been my main guitar ever since. I LOVE MY SHERATON and GOD BLESS EPIPHONE… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/12/2010 by bendeschaad (2 reviews written)

I've owned a 1999 Sheraton 2 for 10 years. The blonde model. I call her "Blondie." Great tone but did need to have the pots replaced about 2 years ago. I also have a Gretsch hollow body electric and a Gibson-Les Paul Epi, but I keep going back to my Sheraton 2. I like the 3 part neck (made in Korea)
and the way the neck feels up and down the fretboard. Stays in tune really well for RnR and occasional country. I run it through a 1965 Fender Vibrolux with just a little reverb, which, allows… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/10/2010

Very good guitar for the money. Nice semi-hollow body. Paid $450 for mine used (1997 model) not a scratch on it with Seymour Duncan pickups installed. I love everything about this guitar except one thing. It is very heavy. You get shoulder fatigue when playing for more than 15 minutes. Very versitile guitar with good sustain. I can play mellow jazz to hard driving rock on this thing. Stays in tune very well. Has a wide shallow neck that feels great and plays easy. Other than being… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/03/2010

I've had a Sheraton II in natural for a couple of years, during which time it's been given some of the normal upgrades: bone nut, Seymour Pearly Gates + new push-pull pots. I've taken off all of the blingy gold hardware, adding a chrome stesbar trem and a set of chrome locking tuners. Having been a big teenage Alex Lifeson fan, an ES335 was always my dream guitar, but with my medium quality skills, I couldn't justify the costs. Even before the upgrades, this was a very nice instrument -… Read Full Review

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… Read Full Review

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 Full Review

“One of the more polished 335 alikes from Epiphone. ”

Written on: 19/05/2009 by sheepgnome (1 review written)

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 Full Review

Guitarbug's Response to Teawallah's Review

Written on: 20/07/2010

Acutally, it was an Epiphone Casino that John Lennon 'walloped' on stage. Very similar appearance to the Sheraton, but completely hollow inside and P90 pick-ups instead of humbuckers. Epiphone actually sell an 'Inspired by John Lennon' Casino at present: http://www.epiphone.com/default.asp?ProductID=325&CollectionID=17

It doesn't take all that much research to know Lennon played a Casino. What sort of a review was that? Why did you bother?

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 Full Review

Written on: 26/03/2009

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 Full Review

Written on: 03/01/2009 by mpither5 (1 review written)

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 Full Review

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 Full Review

Written on: 06/12/2008 by drobin (1 review written)

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 Full Review

Steveramone's Response to 423120_drobin's Review

Written on: 17/06/2009

I found this review not helpful because the guy is deluded. There is no comparison between a Heritage H535 and an Epiphone Sheraton. I bought my Heritage a few years ago and its sound, playability and build quality were so much better than my 67 335 thst I sold the Gibson. I have also owned an Epi Dot and a Sheraton - both korean - with the view that they would be a backup to the Heritage but they went the same way as the Gibson. The only banckups I would have would be another Heritage or a Yamaha SA - preferably an older one

Written on: 17/11/2008

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 Full Review
