Product Description

The new Epiphone Sheraton-II PRO honors Epiphone’s most influential ‘thin-line’ semi-hollowbody electric archtop now with a Wine Red finish plus critically acclaimed ProBucker pickups with coil-tapping and a Graphtech NuBone XL nut.

An Epiphone Icon: Hailed by blues legend John Lee Hooker as ‘an out-did 335,’ the Sheraton has been renown for decades for its combination of superior tone and beautiful pearloid and abalone inlay. Originally released in 1959, the inspiration for the ‘thin-line’ or ES series has its roots in Les Paul’s first solidbody guitar, ‘The Log,’ that Les built in Epiphone’s factory in Manhattan in 1940.

Epiphone Sheraton II Pro Semi-Hollowbody Guitar Features

  • Maple Body
  • Maple Top
  • Pau Ferro fingerboard
  • ProBucker Pickups
  • Epiphone limited lifetime warranty
5-Piece Laminated Neck:
The 24.75” scale neck is made of 5-piece laminated hard Maple/Walnut with beautiful block and triangle pearloid and abalone inlays, 22 medium jumbo frets, and a large vintage style “Clipped Ear” headstock with the classic “tree of life” motif. The Epiphone Sheraton-II PRO also now features the new Graphtech NuBone XL nut that is as hard as bone but will last a lifetime without chipping or cracking. Graphtech molds and engineers each NuBone XL nut for consistent tone and string balance.

ProBucker Humbuckers:
The Epiphone Sheraton-II PRO now is powered by critically acclaimed ProBucker humbuckers. The first humbuckers (often called "Patent Applied For" for the telltale sticker found on the back of the pickups) were made at the Epiphone/Gibson factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan in the late 50s and have acquired a mythical status among guitar players. Epiphone ProBucker pickups are made with the same alloy as the originals--18% Nickel Silver unit bases and covers--along with Sand cast Alnico II magnets and high quality 4-conductor lead wire. Each ProBucker pickup is also vacuum wax potted to eliminate microphonics.

The Epiphone Sheraton-II PRO has a ProBucker-2 in the neck position and a slightly hotter ProBucker-3 in the lead position. Both pickups also have coil-splitting via their individual volume controls. Coil-splitting allows a player to turn a humbucker pickup into a single-coil pickup for endless tone combinations. Each ProBucker pickup’s volume and tone control use 1” 500K Ohm potentiometers along with a 3-way pickup selector with an ivory-colored toggle cap.

Epiphone Gold Hardware:
The Sheraton II-PRO has rock solid nickel hardware in elegant gold with an unbeatable LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece combo. Tuning is easy and reliable with gold Grover Rotomatic machine heads with a pro-level 18:1 tuning ratio. The Sheraton-II PRO is strung at the factory with D’Addario 10-46 gauge strings. An optional hard case is available from Authorized Epiphone Dealers.

Lifetime Guarantee:
The Epiphone Sheraton II PRO is backed by Epiphone’s Lifetime Limited Warranty plus Gibson’s 24/7/365 Customer Service.

What is your opinion of this product?
After learning drums & bass, guitar is my next project. I got this good looking piece with the idea of playing it clean at times and a bit dirty. Although I’m new to the guitar, I have an idea of the tone that I want and this baby clearly produces it. Mine needed some setup adjusting as the strings were pretty high as well as the pickups, but that was easy for me to do as I already set up my basses.

Amazing tone and feel
What is your opinion of this product?
This is an awesome guitar. Sounds and feels as good as it looks. It is like a Gibson ES335 dressed for the Grammy Awards! Amazing instrument that is easy to play. The coil taps make it extremely versatile too!

An exceptional Epiphone.
What is your opinion of this product?
I bought an Epi L.P custom pro in black and the guitar far exceeded my expectation's, but I am really into playing the blues and I wanted a moe blues style guitar and I had heard good thing's about the Sheraton 2 pro, so I bought one and I have to say that I can't put the darn thing down, I dream about playing it at night, lol. This guitar is equal to the Gibson 335 or dare I say even better (I own both). If you want an awesome sounding and looking guitar look no further and the price compared to the gibson is less than half. Can't beat that with a stick. Super happy and AMS was awesome in every way with the buying experience.

My new go-to stage guitar
What is your opinion of this product?
Flawless guitar - well built, feels good, plays great, and sounds perfect. The Pro-buckers really make this thing sing. Played it's first gig the other night and the soundman couldn't get over the tone. Just sings.I play hard rock and some old school metal, and was afraid with the marshall stack I would have a problem with feedback - nope. As for setup - yep, I did have to set it up a bit better with a quick fret-level and a twist or two of the truss rod, but I do that with all my guitars, no matter what... it's just how I am. Pay no attention to epiphone-nay-sayers - I've got gibsons, fenders, epiphones, etc., and to be perfectly honest, this beats the higher-priced guitars out. Maybe not hands-down, but legitimately this is a great guitar, and then if you consider the price, it's a really great guitar. I couldn't see spending 3500 on a gibson 335 when this was 700, and looks much better... and actually, feels and sounds just as good. Go epiphone! Winner here.

Well worth the money
What is your opinion of this product?
Just want to know if (the buzz was corrected on the Bridge) and workmenship also been inspected carefully, this I've read from a review back 12/26/2016 cause I'm planing to get one.
AMS Responds: Thanks for the question. The item would come from the factory setup. Sometimes you may need to get a setup to get it playing the way you like but most often it comes very playable.

Fantastic!
What is your opinion of this product?
I am stunned at how beautifully made this guitar is and how they can sell it at such a low price! Fit and finish are second to none and it sounds and plays wonderful! My only tiny complaint is the bridge has the "buzz" from the stupid retaining wire on the adjustment screws, why they continue to use this style bridge is beyond me but,it is a fairly inexpensive part to replace. I highly recommend this guitar! Thanks AMS and Epiphone for high Quality at a working man's price .
