Epiphone Sheraton II Natural Gold Hardware
The Epiphone Sheraton-II, once hailed by Blues Legend John Lee Hooker as "An out-did 335", combines perfect semi-hollowbody tone with impeccable looks.
A Historic Epiphone Icon: In 1958, the first Epiphone guitars made in the Gibson Kalamazoo factory were produced. Also in that same year, Gibson introduced its Electric Spanish (ES) collection, which included the legendary ES-335 semi-hollowbody, which was largely inspired directly from Les Paul’s original “Log” design. Les’ Log was made from Epiphone parts and a 4” x 4” piece of pinewood at the Epiphone factory in New York seventeen years earlier in 1941. The feedback-resistant qualities of the ES-335 was combined with historic Epiphone inlays and cosmetics to create the first Epiphone Sheraton in 1959. While the original Sheraton featured a split-trapeze Frequensator tailpiece, this Sheraton-II features a Stopbar tailpiece for improved sustain.
Beautifully Built: Voiced with a pair of Epiphone's Alnico Classic Humbucker pickups for authentic vintage tone, this guitar is constructed with a rock-steady, Hard Maple neck, a traditional laminated body with a Mahogany center block for amazing tone and sustain that works well for a wide range of musical genres including Rock, Blues or Jazz.
But That's Not All! Add a Rosewood fingerboard and gold hardware and then... make it even more gorgeous with the historic "Tree of Life" headstock inlay with "Block and Triangle" Pearl/Abalone fretboard inlays and you've got the complete package. The Gold hardware includes Grover machine heads for superior tuning stability, Epiphone’s exclusive LockTone locking Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece for increased sustain, as well as full-size 1” 500K ? potentiometers with Epiphone’s superior all-metal toggle switch and heavy-duty output jack.
Lasting Beauty: The Epiphone Sheraton II is backed by the Epiphone Lifetime Limited Warranty featuring Gibson 24/7/360 Customer Service that guarantees the instrument against defects in materials or workmanship. Visit Rainbow Guitars to experience one for yourself.
