Epiphone Sheraton-II Pro NA

Electric Guitar

When it comes to the domain of semi-acoustics, the company Epiphone does not have to politely step aside to make way for its big American sister Gibson, especially since significantly different paths have been trodden by the two.

The Sheraton II, however, is based on the legendary ES-335 by Gibson. With its sustain block, it is also perfect for distorted sounds without the typical feedback. Epiphone has largely retained the characteristics of its famous American big sister, and the sound that comes from the two humbuckers is clearly reminiscent of the original: a rather soft, full-bodied tone (ideally suited for jazz, but with enough edge so that other styles such as blues and rock can still sound quite convincing). As with any good semi-acoustic, the Sheraton also has a bit of a "woody" resonance in the sound, which is particularly noticeable in the clean and low crunch range, due to its rich frequency spectrum and great dynamics. A vintage natural finish with gold hardware finish her off.

Epiphone Sheration 2 natural

Richard88, 15.05.2014
Really beautiful sound, beautiful looks. All you could ask for in a guitar that will look good on stage. Very well put together, with only one snag - I had a serous rattle across all strings on the first fret making it unplayable. This was caused by the neck actually bending backwards when the guitar arrived, and needing the truss rod slacking off all the way to get the neck straight! Once I'd slackened the nut all the way the guitar played very well, and at the low cost of the guitar I'm not complaining.

It seems the Chinese made Sheratons have a 1 piece neck maple neck while the Korean ones still have the 5 piece neck with 2 dark stripes in it, which is more stable and a lot less likely to be damaged if you ever drop the guitar. This means the headstock is far less likely to break off.

I've been making guitars for 22 years now, so setting up the neck was not a problem for me, but if you get this problem (small problem really) get it looked at and you will end up with a fantastic guitar for less than £400.
The strings it came with are 10s, and I would not think about putting lighter ones on it.

A good surprise

Paul124, 05.06.2011
Guitar hollow body crossed by a central beam.

Level finishing, it is exemplary. The natural wood look is aesthetically successful. The handle is quite thick, but very comfortable (I am however accustomed to stratches). The guitar is not excessively heavy.

Sound level, the microphones are very correct, without being exceptional. The neck pickup sounds very round and full, unlike the easel pickup which is more aggressive. The combination of the two microphones, combined with the two volumes, makes it possible to obtain interesting sounds.

If the pickup microphone goes well on clear sound, I much prefer the bridge pickup with a very slightly crunch sound.

Used to the stratocaster and the telecaster, I needed a guitar that could give me new sounds. This Epiphone fulfilled its role perfectly, and with its aesthetic appearance succeeded, it was the pleasant surprise of the beginning of the year for me.
