    GOOD OPPORTUNITY

    Japanese-made I think. two somewhat insipid mics that I changed. two tone and two volume for each entry microphones rather effective.

    USE

    handle very easy and very good ergonomics (well it's love-quarter fund), a bit heavy, about 4 kg .I changed the pickups for Seymour Duncan sh2, sh 4, given the quality of the guitar and its finish it really is an investment worth .I played on a lionheart Laney and good pedal ht dual and I really get the desired sounds clear lens bluesy crunch to see the good distortion.

    SOUNDS

    made with the mods I am fully satisfied

    beautiful violin for a very vintage sound

    The Sheraton II Epiphone version of the Gibson ES335;
    His violin made in Korea is absolutely beautiful, better than the Gibson ES335 DOT Made in USA entry level to 2500euros!
    beautiful sunburst, beautiful fillets plywood box nets, handle, head and gills, abalone markers, gold hardware, gloss (strong enough), tortoise pick guard.
    2 Epiphone Alnico Classic Pickups / neck and Alnico Classic Hot / bridge.

    10-46 strings of origin, very good original setting (Action a little high at Nut)

    I had to make a slight adjustment notches 3 saddle bridge for the string height well suited them

    UTILIZATION

    Relatively light guitar, handle fine fairly flat,
    double notch allows access to acute even on the low strings (but we will not often?)
    the volume and tone knobs are effective.
    The ES335 form is present, but ultimately not so cumbersome due to its low thickness (see Alvin Lee)

    I find it unbalanced with an itchy head down.

    SOUNDS

    I play blues and classic rock (Chuck Berry, Alvin Lee)
    it is very good for that;
    microphones are quite clear and warm,
    I prefer the neck pickup with reverb '
    the bridge pickup with a tube screamer is sending.
    it has a sound all its own, certainly through the semi-hollow body;
    I compared the sound without a microphone than a Gibson 335 DOT, and had preferred the Epiphone

    I think it would improve again with Seymour Duncan SH1 '59, for more precision and articulation of notes,
    but it would be a little less in the spirit and vintage sound

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 2 years, in parallel with a '62 Strat RI, they complement each other well.
    I wanted an ES335, but I preferred the Epiphone Sheraton II with Gibson ES335 DOT sound and finish, regardless of price; Probably the Gibson ES335 Custom Shop is better than the Sheraton, but then the price is a deterrent.

    when we see it, when you play it, and you see the price, this is an amazing deal.
    and if you want a more modern sound, you change it and it gets its microphones Warren Haynes!

    obviously deserves a quality case to protect

    Change the pickups and all will be well in the world.

    Everything is said in other reviews, or almost. It is imperative if we want a "real" guitar (although the sheraton is very correct to base) to change the pickups. His violin is impeccable, very close to the ESS in terms of type and quality above all, into a means-end guitar, Gibson / Epiphone have caught on microphones (and metal parts: bridge, frets, mechanical ... ). For my part I mounted P-90 Benedetti above.

    UTILIZATION

    The neck of this guitar is a marvel in terms of touch. Which is quite normal when you know that all ESS models were directly inspired by Sheraton ... We walk upwards as on a freeway, it's pretty neat.

    UTILIZATION

    The neck of this guitar is a marvel in terms of touch. Which is quite normal when you know that all ESS models were directly inspired by Sheraton ... We walk upwards as on a freeway, it's pretty neat.

    But it was a great hit, the neck is very heavy! the guitar is unfortunately not very well balanced. That said when you play it by the handle that holds, so for me it's a minor drawback, if not anecdotal, but there it can interfere, so it is important I think of the state.

    In my case I play a Mexican hot rod and as I have said above changed the pickups, and I've always played on Fender amps. Each of tampering to find his sound to it, but actually, you plug it sounds.

    SOUNDS

    I'm in a pop / pop rock record, and this guitar is basically a blues guitar, so it works very well! Given the changes that I made it a very specific sound, and with a draft of the low string harmonies stand out beautifully. It also has a very wide range of sounds: not to mention effect already, just knob on the guitar, putting himself on the bridge pickup and lowering the presence knob you get a great sound a bit tinny, vintage wish , I do not see how to get another guitar, apart from the ESS and the Rickenbacker hollowbody can be. And putting the selector in the middle and down the volume of the two microphones, one surprisingly close to a sound ... acoustic guitar. The latter must also play with the amp to make it work really well, but it is quite impressive when you take the time to refine this aspect.

    And when we put on the neck pickup, you get a super hot round and his (the one I use the most), which I accompany with a reverb room (rather strong, even very), chorus (a delay hijacked rather in chorus), delay and overdrive (not quite all the time of course, it would be a shame not to take advantage of this clear natural sound)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had about 4 years and do not regret at all it cost me about 600 €, a little less.

    In terms of value for money, once spent with the luthier, we are left with the third sister ESS 335 and 337 altogether. So in my opinion one of the best quality / price ratio that we can find

    A very good guitar, no doubt. The ratings given here are guarantors. Mine, made in Korea presents a perfect violin (2011 model).

Vintage 59 (AlNiCo2) for the neck position, Fat Pat (Alnico 5) for the bridge position. Ultra versatility appointment at a lower cost.
    So, apart from the original pickups, the Epiphone stands comparison with 335 in who you know, sold 4-5 times more expensive. If you swear by the Classic 57 (I understand ;-), buy this Sheraton, place a pair of your favorite microphones, offers him a case and for less than 800 euros (in 2014) you will have an instrument height a Gibson 335 ... more pretty! The Epiphone Sheraton: Safe valeure!

    Amazing clarity and roundness

    This guitar was made in Korea in 2005, everything is original and gilded fittings goes very well with black lacquer beautiful.
    The finish is EXEMPLARY, and I said that it seems to be the case of Korean who have nothing, but then nothing to do with the Chinese!
    This point seems recognized by Parisian dealers who remain discreet though as Gibson France does not communicate on the origin of consignments and deliveries.
    The inlays (or plastic I do not know) are the most beautiful effect.
    I removed the brown pickgard which makes it even more class.

    I removed the brown pickgard which makes it even more class.

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is not very big and very nice (unless my Strat though).
    Once the psychological barrier of playing on a great guitar is passed, this Sheraton is very nice, not too heavy.
    I may be lucky, but the original pickups seem quality, sustain is terrible.
    Whether it sounds clear as its saturated everything is good.
    This guitar can get the power of an LP, but also provides roundness and precision.

    SOUNDS

    I have a general preference for bass pickups, but I must admit that the bridge pickup is accurate and not too aggressive.
    I love the blues and rock, and the Sheraton too.
    I use an amp 5W lamps and a Peavey 12 inch Celestion Vintage bafle G12H.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have this guitar for 2 months now, and it augments my Strato John Mayer.
    Before this, I owned a standard U.S. Strat 2010, a 52 RI Telecaster 2005 Epiphone LP Tribute and 60.
    I certify that this is part of the Sheraton benchmarks guitar and as I did not keep the TV for too twang nor Tribute 60 because it sounded bad, as I keep it a long time.
    I am ashamed to say it, but I even have a little trouble on my replay JM Signature, and when you know that I bought € 400 4 times cheaper ...
    In short, go for it.
    PS: Since I'm talking about my Sheraton, I only meet fans half boxes, and former owners (Sheraton or 335) that have sold still wondering why ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    It is a small bomb and what look!
    I tried and owned a bunch of semi hollow in my life (SA Yamaha, Ibanez, Cort, etc ...) but with the upgrade pickups, wiring redone, pots U.S. ... this is my preferred.
    With my mods luthier she returns to 750 euros which in view of its quality is reasonable today.
    I love the inlays, the decor, the overall aesthetics of the Sheraton is not found on the Gibson 335 Dot

    It's beautiful, well finished, which imposes a guitar!

    UTILIZATION

    Easy to use once you get the format right hands, comfortable and easy to play, a treat!

    SOUNDS

    Between rock and blues, saturator and clear sound, it dépatouille well, so very versatile.
    on the other hand format easily attached hollow-body feedback, unfortunately not always desired.
    A high gain mics tend to be imprecise and drafts ...
