The Epiphone Sheraton II Pro Electric Guitar in Ebony delivers hallowed semi-hollowbody tone, in a beautiful package that combines a sophisticated aesthetic with premium hardware appointments, and electronics that deliver the rich timbre of the Sheraton in deservedly impeccable style.
The double-cutaway body of the Epiphone Sheraton II Pro Electric Guitar is constructed from laminated maple, a highly resonant tonewood that creates a powerful acoustic delivery with plenty of warmth. To prevent the timbre of the guitar from becoming overwhelmed by overtones and feedback at high volume, a mahogany centre block runs along the inside of the body to ensure a smooth consistency of tone, however loud you crank it up.
Glued into the body is a hard maple neck that has been carved to a 1960's SlimTaper “C” profile for exceptional comfort. Lying atop this is a pau ferro fingerboard with "Block & Triangle" Inlays, using Mother of Pearl and Abalone, which complement the headstock’s historic "Tree of Life" inlay perfectly.
The original Sheraton combined the feedback-resistant qualities of the ES-335 with the cosmetics and inlays from Epiphone and relied on a split-trapeze Frequensator tailpiece. However, the Epiphone Sheraton II Pro has an improved sustain thanks to the introduction of a Stopbar tailpiece, which works in tandem with a LockTone locking Tune-o-matic bridge. This is in addition to the precise, stable tuning offered to the guitar via a set of gold Grover 18:1 ratio machine heads.
Making the most of that gorgeous maple neck, and the body that provides such tone and sustain, is a pair of ProBucker Humbuckers, which powers through to deliver the authentically vintage voice that so many guitarists crave. With a ProBucker-2 in the neck position delivering smooth, buttery tones, you have the perfect tone for executing fat and thick blues, or dial back the tone control and go for some snappy, jazzy licks. In the bridge position is a hotter sounding ProBucker-3, perfect for giving your leads a searing intensity, lifting your solos above the mix with ease.
Each pickup is equipped with independent volume and tone control knobs, which are equipped with 500k Ohm potentiometers to ensure smooth attenuation at all times. The all-metal three-way pickup selector switch, enables ready access to a wide range of potential tones.
The Epiphone Sheraton II Pro Electric Guitar delivers the most sublime vintage tone and feel to players of today to enjoy for many years to come, a true future classic.
