what a beauty.....fit and finish are second to none......neck is smooth and fast and the action was great right out of the box. The inlays are super attractive and the head had beautiful inlays as well. It has great tone and paired with my crate V16 palamino its a match made in heaven. I'll take the poly finish any day over the les paul cellulose feedback ridden garbage.
I've bought many guitars as gifts from this site, many of the Dot Studios. When I had enough money for any Gibson I wanted, I went for the Sheraton Elitist. It had the inlays, even under the 1st & 6th strings. The NY humbuckers are very high-output and each note is so clear. The tones really ring and sustain.
I just received my Sheraton Elitist. I was extremely pleased with the total package. What great looks, playability, and craftsmanship. I own a Gibson ES-335 and I swear that the Sheraton sounds much fuller. The action on it is wonderful. I plan to install a Stetsbar on it for more sustain and tone. Can't do any better than what Ephiphone offers in this guitar for a far less price than the Gibson equivalent! The finish on this one is perfect and I can not see any imperfections anywhere. Thanks for offering this great guitar!!
WAY BETTER THAN THE CRAP GIBSON HAS MADE IN THE LAST 10 YEARS!!!! VERY warm and smooth sounding, not "cold" and "hollow" like most of the newer Gibson semi-hollows. Binding was great, unlike the crap Gibson uses. The neck, it was SO SMOOTH...like glass; felt like part of my body. Don't waste THOUSANDS of dollars for a Gibson headstock and decal, the Elitist line is WAY nicer than anything Gibson has thrown out in the last 10 years. The "E" Epiphone puts on their pickguards have a tendency to fall off, but it's no biggy....they look nicer without them in my opinion.
Very nicely setup. Beautiful wood. Great tone. Rivals Gibson at a better price.
This was a BLEM purchase. WHAT A DEAL! It is much nicer than I expected. Plays better than my LP or my Strat.
I love this guitar. It sounds and feels amazing. One of my band members owns a Les Paul and would much rather play this. Its just a great guitar all around. Sounds great through a vintage amp.
I have been an active musician for over 30 years just so you will know. I usually don't post a review after having an instrument for only a few day's. But this is an exception. The Sheraton Elite is a fabulous instrument. Super quality through and through. I can't find any flaw in this guitar. And I usually can!! If you are looking for a Gibsonish guitar, you must check out the elitist series. I am extremely satisfied!! She plays and sounds like a dream!! Alan.
I love this guitar! It has a different more calm sound then the Casino, but it's a great guitar! I love the hollow bodied guitars, and if I ever have the money this is one I'd buy! I'm working on buying the Epiphone Casino, not the Elite one just the regular! I love both of these guitars, and there prices are pretty good! Thanks Musiansfriend!
I went thorugh 2 of these until I got my third perfect one, and it's everthing they claim. The first two were close but no cee-gar because the inlay work in the upper frets was sloppy. I almost gave up, but I'm glad I didn't! Great friggin' Sheraton! The best I'ver EVER owned, vintage or not!!
