Product Description

The Epiphone 50th Anniversary 1962 Sheraton Electric Guitar is an incredibly accurate reissue of one of the classic Epiphone designs! The original early '60s Sheraton profile features a laminated maple body with period correct binding, a 5-layer bound tortoise-style pickguard with metal foil ‘E’, and a mahogany neck with a 1960s SlimTaper profile. The rosewood fingerboard has 22 medium jumbo frets, pearloid and Abalone Block and Triangle inlays, and Grover kidney style machine heads.

The 1962 Sheraton reissue's electronics feature CTS potentiometers, Epiphone's non-rotating 1/4 inch output jack, Top Hat knobs with metal inserts, and Gibson USA mini-humbuckers for superior sound! This Epiphone Sheraton comes with your choice of a Frequensator tailpiece or a Tremotone tremelo tailpiece. The reissue Epiphone Tremotone tremolo bar was carefully redesigned to function and look exactly like the original but with subtle improvements to ensure longer life.

Good guitar
Your general opinion of this product.
Like I said this guitar can be a keeper if you want to invest time to have it done correctly. And want to invest in a new bridge.
