The Sheraton II (copy of Gibson ES335) is a semi-hollow body guitar made in Korea ... It's not flattering of course, but it ensures a flawless build quality!
It has an easel Tune-o-Matic providing excellent performance of the agreement and two humbuckers sound so offering this feature.
The assembly is maple / ebony (set neck) and finishing "sunburn" is perfect.

UTILIZATION

The handle is quite "special" because rather broad and flat. You have to love! That said, it remains very comfortable and its relative width is that the strings are fairly well spaced. I who have "large" lumberjack fingers, I appreciate!

The general shape of the guitar made that access to treble is excellent (the neck joins the body at the 20th cargo ...).
That side, so no problem is the ideal guitar to make a blues solo ... ergonomics, however, I find her quite considerable weight (This is indeed the daughter of Mr. Gibson!) . Therefore provide a good soft and comfortable strap!

Side setting is simple: a microphone 3-position selector (neck pickup, bridge pickup + neck pickup and bridge), a volume and tone by microphone.

SOUNDS

For blues, rock, or jazz, the Sheraton II is perfectly suited. With varying degrees of distortion and reverb, it covers almost all of these styles.

The only negative on the microphones that are not up to the violin. The singularly serious lack of definition (it's a little mushy around the edges!) For the acute, it lacks punch ... settings (height of the microphones, mainly) do not change much. Now is the time

OVERALL OPINION

e conclude: The Sheraton II is a superb guitar. It is primarily for aesthetics that I bought and from this point of view, I do not regret! The copy is almost more beautiful than the original (the ES335).

Damage so that the microphones are so disappointing ... This leaves only one thing to do: change them and the Sheraton will vriament the sound it deserves!
