"Epiphone Sheraton 2"

Epiphone Sheraton IIPublished on 12/22/03 at 15:00
private sale , second hand but unused.I'm not really sure why the fellow I bought it from ever got it because it even still had the price tag on it. With case $600 CDN

Incredible neck ,I can play this for hours without tiring.Good natural body resonance unplugged which ,I feel, effects how it sings.True, you do not find the same attention to detail on cosmetics as the Gibson it is supposed to be derived from ,but the guitar itself is ,for intended purpose ,a 335 . I feel Gibson is really under cutting themseleves this axe is up to it, as far as I am concerned.

Switch is not very tough won't last long without trouble a Switchcraft ,which is what Gibson uses on guitars costing thousands......

Switch is not very tough won't last long without trouble a Switchcraft ,which is what Gibson uses on guitars costing thousands ,should be easily aquired from any local shop for $25 tops. Pots, not as bad , mine are not crackling yet,but they are not heavy duty so they may crash after a while.

The one I got has excellent fit and finish all 'round save for a bad fill job on 1 position marker, just as good as Gibsons I've recently checked out. I have seen some on the racks with a few dodgey bits but still essentially solid all 'round. Gold plating on pick-ups soon disappears , not very heavy . Road worthy as any Gibson,but then nothing is as tough as a Fender.

You cannot get a better deal than this if you are in the market for an excellent Blues/Jazz guitar.As mentioned switch & pots don't really make it ,but considering that a new switch ,pots and a" Gibson decal" would cost you at least 5 times as much ,you can buy two and still have change.

"Epiphone '95 Sheraton II"

Epiphone Sheraton IIPublished on 09/01/03 at 15:00
I was in the market for an American Strat when I was introduced to the Sheraton II.
I picked it up, played it, and was hooked.
For $500, it was a steal!

Although I prefer lighter guitars, the heavy
wieght of this guitar makes a good impression.
The maple top adds a brightness that you won't find with a Gibson 335.
Other than that, it is a 335.
It's versatile, well made,
and a terrific value.

For blues, the guitar has too much natural treble.
For rock however, the sound of the maple body punches through the mix.

Overall construction; A+.
It's a Gibson.

Everyone that I've talked to about this guitar gives it high marks.

this guitar blows the competition away.

"Epiphone Sheraton 2"

Epiphone Sheraton IIPublished on 02/13/02 at 15:00
I paid $689.95 at ZZounds (internet)
with case...New


At this time I own three electrics. A Gibson ES-135 LE, an Epiphone Les Paul standard quilt top and this Epiphone Sheraton 2. I also used to own a Gibson Lucille, a Rickenbacker and a Gretsch hollow body. I realize that I'm very positive about most of the equipment I review; but I'm simply ecstatic about this guitars beauty and 'feel'. I don't know if I will ever find one that I love as much. I really don't know why I even look at others. Having the Sheraton 2 is like having a Playmate of the Year for your girlfriend. This guitar smokes the Gibson Lucille...

"Epiphone Sheraton II"

Epiphone Sheraton IIPublished on 07/06/01 at 15:00
I bought this guitar several years ago from Rock N Rhythm
http://www.rocknrhythm.com
... it was on sale for 428.00 with hard case.
I couldn't turn that down.. I should have bought two or three more.


From day one the guitar sounded good and played great. The fit and finish were excellent..only the most minute nit picking finds problems.
I have swapped out the pickups for Gibsons,and this made a qualitative difference.
I've had no problems at all with this guitar. It still plays great and looks great and sounds great.
It sold me on Epiphone, and made a semi hollow lover out of me.
I have to say the neck comes first for me. It's just about perfect for me.
The quality......

The quality of the guitar is outstanding, and the look and tone are both top shelf.


I don't like how hard it is to replace pots.
Fishing through the F holes is a drag.


Construction and quality is excellent. Only very minor flaws anywhere.. a tad too much filler in a neck inlay..a tiny spot of dirt in the finish.
Tough as nails!.. This thing was on a stand in my living room for the better part of it's first three years at home... no humidifier.. midwest weather.
You'd never know it. I could polish it up and put it back on the rack.
Beautifully done, and done well, too.

Epiphone has a winner here. You can't get a 335 styled guitar anything like this elsewhere.
From the multi ply binding, to the neck headstock inlays.. bound f holes.. gold hardware.. center block construction.. all maple top back and sides.. five ply mahogany/maple neck..
everything is very well done and very pretty.
If you want a fancy 335.. the sheraton II will fill that bill and provide you with great playability and sound as well.
If you want a plain one.. take a good look at the epiphone dot.
