I've been wanting this guitar for years. I finally could afford it and ordered it. It took a little longer to ship than normal, maybe 3 or so days, but it was quick getting here when it shipped.

When it arrived, the setup seemed pretty excellent out of the box. I just plugged her in and played. And let me tell you, she sounded incredible. The bridge pickup gives a nice and well rounded tone in clean settings and with distortion and overdrive. No feedback issues at all so far.

The neck pickup is nice in clean, but gets muddy when you add some gain. It's not terrible but certainly not great. I'll probably get Gibson '57s for both neck and bridge.

All things considered, this is the best guitar I've owned and played and definitely worth the money.

Let's start with the positives. The Sheraton is simply stunning. The chunky neck feels great and the guitar feels substantial. It's not too heavy although it is slightly neck-heavy. Some reviewers have complained about that but it doesn't bother me at all. Some have also criticized the pickups. The bridge pickup can be a little thin sounding at times but through a good amp the pickups have not held me back from dialing in excellent blues and rock tones.

The negatives... In addition to a scratchy pickup selector switch (not really that big of a deal) my Sheraton needed a significant amount of work to get it up to snuff. I'm talking about fret leveling ($$$) to minimize obnoxious string buzz (it's still there but manageable). Also the cheap plastic nut, aside from causing tuning issues, was cut poorly. The slots were heavily biased toward the treble side which caused the high E string to fall off the fretboard constantly.

I bought this instrument from Musician's Friend as a "scratch and dent" at a significant discount (the "damage" was very minor so I'm happy with that aspect) so the money spent getting it set up didn't hurt quite as badly as if I had paid full price. All in all I would recommend the Sheraton with the warning that it may not be 100% right out of the box. While this is true for many guitars the issues with mine went beyond simply needing a setup. Now that its issues have been rectified I'm really enjoying playing it.

Sheraton semi hollow body by Epi Phone.,Great sound for the investment !

By Bill

Comments about Epiphone Sheraton II Electric Guitar:

What more can I say to endorse this guitar ? It is by far one of the best buys for the dollar spent , I like to say invested ,largely in part to what one receives from something ,opposite that which only takes. Some years back when money was very tight , I had to make the compromises to building that which would always be mine , not mine and the banks. I endured the years I had to play a strat made outside the USA, I have the finest,latest technologic strat now.AND a world of differance to be certian, HOW EVER I bought the EPI PHONE SHERATON all those years back and I have it still and love to play it as much as my Gibson 339 , the Sheraton is an investment for your ears and your sole ,it can not disappoint , it does not disappoint, if you learn to play guitar, learn on one of the best starter to novice to professional, everyone likes my Sheraton.
The day had arrived ,I had applied the last dollars into my guitar fund , with cash in hand I went to the Music Store to purchase the Epiphone Prophecy GX that had me salivating from the moment I had picked up a floor model some 4 months earlier , as I awaited the service persons assistance , I looked upon the collection of Gibson 339's and cotemplated the way this sweet sound of golden nectar would enhance the warm generous harmonies of Delta Blue's I was learning to play ,along with the need for clean , brilliant leads built into the songs of that sound . Knowing the accounting to the day such a purchase could occur for me in my guitar fund , I thought I might try an Epi to provide me a reasonable alternative. The Sheriton , the Sheriton has a sound that can achieve all that is required for Delta Majic, a true tone with such clean pitch , as close as one can get in my ear to B B King , John Lee Hooker , and yes even some Muddy Waters. There are many whom would have stayed the coarse and purchased the Prophecy , I know for they told me as much over the years of conversation respectively , This guitar is in a collection of more than twenty and lesss than one hundred , I never get tired of the sweet sounds of golden nectar this guitar is capable of , I am always happy when I have it in my playing hands , an most of all this guitar is capable when others with higher price tags can not get it done . The Epiphone Sheriton is a must have in my ear , body and soul. Love with Music , Respectfully a1longshore44
Exellent guality control , alot of thoughtful engineering went into producing this guitar , it is as solid in overall body build as one of my much more expensive cousins to this type and kind , the electronics are vastly greater than one would expect of a guitar in the price catagory.
The value to return on investment is one of the highest in all comparable senarios , this guitar is easily one of my most favorite ,now at a time in my life when my guitar fund can provide me almost what ever I want . I have purchased the Gibson 339 , and while the electronics are destinctivle to the 339 ,the overall guality of feel and control of the vibe in my hands are very much that of the Sheraton. The Epi Phone ,Gibson people whom thaught this thing through , to put a Better guitar into the rising musicians hands , well done . This guitar never disappoints,always ready , with a quick tune right out of her case , she keeps up with the big daugs !

Comments about Epiphone Sheraton II Electric Guitar:

You can spend a lot more money for a lot less guitar. The stock p/us and hardware are really OK; I've done hundreds of gigs, recording sessions, etc, and this guitar always delivers. The workmanship is really good (mine was made in the Samick factory, your results may vary), and I am really happy with this instrument. When you bring it home, find a tech (or call your tech) and get it set up, you won't be disappointed.
Your typical semi-hollow body electric guitar, dual humbucking p/us, 3-way selector switch, and individual volume and tone controls for each p/u. Each p/u sounds quite good on its own, and you can blend them for the sound you prefer.
This, like any guitar, benefits from a professional setup when you get it. Don't believe that it's "set up in the USA" , you want to take it to your tech to have it set up for the way you play, the string gauges you use, etc. This is REALLY important, trust me.
This guitar is a terrific value, long as it's adjusted and setup professionally.

    Comments about Epiphone Sheraton II Electric Guitar:

    I've been playing for 30+ years. Toured with Toby Keith, Brooks & Dunn, Vince Gill plus others. Always play either Gibson or Fender. A friend asked me to try out his Sheraton II. Really I have to say this really is a wonderful playing guitar. If you don't / can't spend the big money on a huge name but still want quality play and sound, buy this guitar. I'd play this on stage anytime.

    Amazing Less Expensive Alternative to the ES-335!

    By Will Schmid

    from Minneapolis

    Comments about Epiphone Sheraton II Electric Guitar:

    Just a great guitar all around. It looks great, it feels great, just great. American ES-335s cost well over $3000, and this little darling costs this price on MF. The Sheraton plays almost just as well! That sweet 335 sound with out that nasty 335 price.
    All the features of a Gibson ES-335, with maybe lesser electronics, but hardly noticeable tone wise. Solid features!
    Amazing quality for its price tag. With the price you get on Musician's Friend, it's a steal! Sure, it aint Gibson Custom by any means, but compared to others in its price range, it's king!
    Do I need to say more? Amazing value!

    Hard to beat, Great 335 feel for a fraction of the price

    By 58bluesman

    from MIdwest

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Epiphone Sheraton II Electric Guitar:

    I have owned several Gibson 335's. I've sold them all while I continued to keep the Sheraton II. The reason I sold the 335s was because the Sheraton gave me all I needed and had a great vibe that keep me picking it up. I did switch out the pickups for a pair of Gibson Classic 57s. With those pickups in the Sheraton, you can't tell its not a Gibson 335. The modern 335s have the Classic 57s as well.... If you want the double cut away blues vibe at a fraction of the price, get the Sheraton.
    Mine was a factory 2nd and I still love the attention to detail. I've owned the guitar for five years and still haven't found the flaw that made it a 2nd.
    This feels just like a 335. For a fifth of the cost. I've owned several 335's and sold them all... Why? Because this Sheraton gave me all I needed for the double cut away sound, feel, vibe mojo.

    Amazing guitar after Tweaking!

    By Dylan-aCbnn

    from West Lafayette, IN

    Comments about Epiphone Sheraton II Electric Guitar:

    Ok, so out of the box, it needs work. As long as you understand that, then there will be no issues.The Chinese-made Epiphone guitars are built well in the sense of the body and neck, and when I say built well I mean built very well. The main problem with Epiphone guitars are the cheap, shoddy components and electronics that are often installed. The pickups are bland, the harness was a veritable Rat's Nest... Tuners sucked. Honestly, people, it keeps these guitars affordable, but between you and me, its a real shame.So I took my Natural finish (beautiful, by the way) Sheraton II and gutted it. Completely. I installed all new equipment:Grover Locking Tuners (dropped right in)USA electronics (MojoTone 335 harness)Gibson USA 57 Classic/57 Classic + pickup setTo convert to USA made electronics, one must step drill the holes on the top of the guitar from 10mm to 3/8". Not a huge difference, but big enough that you can't force the components in. Its scary, yes, but easily done with proper tools and proper skills. I also switched everything to nickel/chrome finish, as I've heard bad things about the gold rubbing off.Now, having made the adjustments and modifications, this guitar sounds the way that it deserves to sound. It screams and purrs, all at the same time. I plan to put in a Bigsby B6/B60/B11 tremolo (don't know which yet) for added sustain and functionality.This guitar is an investment. Its a shame for people to leave it stock. With a few extra dollars (over time), you can transform this beautiful, elegant guitar into a cherished instrument.

    Comments about Epiphone Sheraton II Electric Guitar:

    I was somewhat nervous when I placed my order because of the comments others had made about having to make structural modifications. I had played this guitar many years ago and really liked it to the point I never forgot it. So after not playing for roughly 30 years, I had it in my head this was the way I wanted to go. BTW guitar is NOT like riding a bicycle! But it really is neat when the fingerings start to come back to you, without you having to think about it. I love this guitar, it's easy to play, the tone is OK (although I suspect I'll eventually get an archtop) and although not cheap, it is very reasonably priced. I bought a restock and it looks new.Speaking of looks, I really did not care about how it looks, just how it plays, but this is VERY pretty. Ironically, I suffered an arm injury just before it arrived. So I spent more time looking at it than I would have expected! It has a lovely narrow neck and I have not had any issues with fret buzz. Shipping and packing were fine. The one guilt factor I had to deal with was my local music store, who refers to Musician's Friend as the evil empire. I bought my amp, case, etc. locally, but they did not offer anything close price wise to this guitar, and in all honesty, if it had not been for Musician's Friend I probably would not have returned to playing, and for that I am greatful! I really do love this guitar.

    Overall, I am happy with this guitar. It looks and sounds great after a good setup. Mine came with a poorly shaped nut, cut too low, and consequent fret buzz. I replaced the tuning machines with Grover gold locking ones, and had it professionally setup. It also had a crack in the pearl inlay at the 12th fret, but I can live with it. For the price, I am happy. I also bought a hard case for it, and have absolutely no idea why MF did not ship the guitar IN THE CASE!

    Sheraton can be very good

    By TheMcGuff

    from Norman, OK

    Comments about Epiphone Sheraton II Electric Guitar:

    I bought the Sheraton II after trying it out against an Epi Dot and the Ibanez version of this guitar. I liked the sound of the Sheraton II due to its resonance and overall sound compared to the other guitars, also it was much more aesthetically pleasing. I knew that eventually I would have to change the pickups. When I had the stock pickups, I liked the clean guitar sounds through my Vox ac15, but with any overdrive or distortion pedals, the stock pickups had far too much bass and fuzzed out the sound. With a simple pickup upgrade to the Tonerider Alnico II Classics, this guitar is exactly what I wanted... It sounds as awesome as a Gibson es335 now, and I saved $1000. Buy this guitar, just make sure to change out the pickups with some high quality vintage voiced pickups such as the Tonerider Alnico II classics or the Seymour Duncan Seth Lover pickups. I tested it out in the same Vox ac15 against a Gibson es335 after the pickup upgrade and the guitars sound the same. I was shocked.

    Comments about Epiphone Sheraton II Electric Guitar:

    I have several Epiphone's and a couple of Gibsons. You can't beat this 335 semi hollow guitar for the money. The finish is perfect (natural)as are the tuners and even the set up out of the box. I love the extra bling of the Sheraton including the full binding and gold hardware. The Sheraton's playability is better than My Gibson 335 studio. The frets are lower and it stays in tune much better than the Gibson. Granted, the pickups don't sound as good as the Gibsons, but that's not to say they sound bad or muddy. I give this guitar 5 stars.

    Most versitile guitar (My opinion)

    By Collin Drake

    from Utah

    Comments about Epiphone Sheraton II Electric Guitar:

    Lets start out with how incredible this gutiar looks. The headstock inlay is what initially got me interested in the guitar, also, The neck inlays are beautiful. I have it in natural wood and i love the grain and how everything looks. very beautiful. The sound is perfect for what I play (mostly stuff such as Brand New, Taking Back Sunday, Thursday, AVA, Charlie Christian ect..) Neck pickup is nice a jazz for jazz leads of course, Middle you can use clean and have it sound extremely close to an acoustic. And the Bridge pickup is nice and tasty for really anything. The pickup switch cracks a little but not too bad. Tuning pegs are nice and smooth and stay in tune. Needless to say a great guitar and I am extremely satisfied.

      I own a Sheraton made in the early 90's and I love this thing! Build quality is top notch all the way, and tone is exactly what you would expect from a guitar such as this. The neck pickup has a very warm jazzy sound, the bridge has a great sound for classic rock and the like, and the two combined makes for a good tone for rhythm playing and chording. Is a great guitar for the price, am enjoying playing this guitar!

      Bought it new in '88, wouldn't get rid of it now. Not happy w/ bridge p/u, changed out for set of Seymour Duncans, new wiring and pots. Plays as well as any Gibby I've played in the last 25 years, and sounds great with the Duncans. Best bang for the buck in a semi hollow guitar in it's price range.

        I've been wanting this guitar for years. I finally could afford it and ordered it. It took a little longer to ship than normal, maybe 3 or so days, but it was quick getting here when it shipped.

        When it arrived, the setup seemed pretty excellent out of the box. I just plugged her in and played. And let me tell you, she sounded incredible. The bridge pickup gives a nice and well rounded tone in clean settings and with distortion and overdrive. No feedback issues at all so far.

        The neck pickup is nice in clean, but gets muddy when you add some gain. It's not terrible but certainly not great. I'll probably get Gibson '57s for both neck and bridge.

        All things considered, this is the best guitar I've owned and played and definitely worth the money.

        I wanted an electric guitar that would equal or outdo an ES-335 by Gibson and I found it in the Epi Sheraton II. I bought the natural finish and it is absolutely gorgeous. Having played hundreds of guitars in my 45 year musical history (I own 12) the Sheraton is a real gem. Superb tone, a sleek/wide neck and medium weight, I am delighted to pick the guitar up and practice without an amp. With amplification the bass pickup is rich and creamy for jazz. The Sheraton cranks up well with natural distortion on my Fender amps. Overall, I am delighted. Like any new guitar "out of the box", please get your unit set-up professionally, although the Sheraton was playable as soon as I received it. I am proud to strap on the Sheraton II and quite confident when jamming or finding that special sound for recording.

          I ordered the sheratan II with a case-guitar came installed in the case-everything was as expected-fine korean made guitar(as I had read about) I was a little skeptical as It was out of it's original box. I replaced the strings as the guitar was dated 6/2012 and right after I found 3 small cracks on both sides under the nut-I could not feel them but I could see them. I did not want to take a chance so with Muscians Friends excellent return policy, I returned it and re-ordered another-just came-seems fine. My point is this company is EXCELLENT to deal with. They sent me the prepaid shipping label and everyone was very pleasent to deal with. As I have said before, Muscians Friend is definitely customer oriented and this is one of the many reasons I keep coming back

          Epiphone Sheraton II - Jan 2012 - I LOVE IT

          I bought this on a whim when it was on sale

          I have a few very nice solid body guitars but wanted to try something different without getting in over my head.

          I am very happy with what I got
          Played it for several hours every day for 2 weeks now and I love it.

          Feels awesome and sounds great.

          Never played a semi hollow before so I don't have anything to compare it to. Sorry, can't tell you how it stacks up to a Gibson.

          I play thru a Line 6 effects board directly into a small PA system in my basement.
          Mine was made in China - Inspected in USA.

          I heard some bad things about the chinese version of this guitar, but the guitar I got is nice and solid.

          A few minor cosmetic paint issues with the binding. The "e" on the pick guard is coming off. A few loose screws here and there. I didn't buy it to look at it.

          The frets were a little rough at first but that soon went away with a little playing. I put 09's on it and lowered the action a bit (I think it came with 10's). It stays in tune fairly well after a lot of heavy bending. Not perfect but not bad either. Intonation seems good to me. I play a lot of chords up and down the neck and nothing sounds off.

          Anyhow, I'm very happy with it. For the price, the quality is outstanding
          If you are looking to try a semi hollow body I don't see how you can beat this.

          This a very nice guitar

            Comments about Epiphone Sheraton II Electric Guitar:

            I played a Dot, 335-Pro and the Sheraton at Guitar Center and as soon as I picked up the Sheraton I knew which one I wanted. It felt even better than it looked and sounded sweet. I wanted the Ebony model but I noticed they had a Natural one on clearance. I asked for the clearance price on the Ebony model and they wouldn't do it. I called Musicians Friend and they matched the clearance price. I love these guys! This is the second guitar I have purchased this year, don't tell my wife, both from Musicians Friend. The first one needed a set up, which Musicians Friend paid for, but the Sheraton was set up great right out of the box. The neck was perfect and I was able to lower the action to where I like and I couldn't be happier with my purchase! Thanks again Musicians Friend!

            P.S. They did not pay me to write this!
