Can't Put Her Down!
General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
A total joy to play! She plays and sounds as good as she looks. I have been a tried and true Fender fan for years, but now I will also sing the praises of Epiphone!
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Overall quality of craftsmanship is good with only one minor flaw in construction which does not impede in any way with it's playability or sound quality ( a rough join where the neck meets the body on the back of the guitar). I play mainly blues and blues based rock, but also cross over into country rock, punk, hard rock and power pop. I find this guitar crosses over quite well with all of the categories. If you can't get the sound you want from this guitar, you can't place the blame on her.
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Having played mainly a Fender Stratocaster for years, I expected to initially feel some adjustment moving to a larger body electric guitar, yet found the transition to be easy. In fact, my Stratocaster feels slightly heavier than the Sheraton II. Right out of the box I found the action to be set just right. The neck feels very comfortable in my hand and she plays like a dream. My biggest problem is putting her down...she just makes me want to keep on playing.
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
I've read reviews that the sound can be "muddy" from the stock pick-ups, but I've not found that to be the case. I run her through my various Fender amps and find I can get some exceptional tones from her. I've already begun to write and record music using this guitar and I'm very pleased with the results I am getting.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
Mine is in the Natural finish. I had been on the fence between this and the Ebony. I couldn't be more pleased with my choice in finishes. The beauty of the natural wood grain can not be beat. I assure you, even the best photographs can do no justice to the Natural finish. It's so much more impressive in person.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
This guitar looks like it should cost a good grand more than it does. Regardless of the name on the headstock, after getting a Sheraton II, you'd be hard pressed to think a regular ES 335 looks more beautiful. And even if you personally find the pick ups or other hardware not to your liking, you can simple swap them out and still have a real stunning guitar like no other. I got an unexpected bonus in that my model came with the five piece neck, as apposed to the three piece. My initial choice for the Natural finish was because I liked the look of the five piece neck. But, through correspondence with Epiphone/Gibson, was made aware that Epiphone was no longer manufacturing the five piece neck models. When contacted, AMS informed me they no longer had any in stock, as well. So, when I removed her form the box and turned her over to see those "beauty lines" on the back of the neck, I couldn't have been more excited.
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
Just as with my Epiphone Wildkat which I purchased only months earlier, the action was set just right for me right out of the box. Both are proving to be really great sounding and playing guitars.
