Description

The Epiphone Sheraton II is not only one of Epiphone’s most famous electric archtops, it’s also one of the House of Stathopoulo’s most elegant. The Sheraton II’s beautiful binding, historic Tree-of-Life headstock inlay, and gold hardware, instantly elevates the guitar (and its player!) to center stage.
For Epiphone designers of the late 50s who were eager to show that the House of Stathopoulo was alive and well, the original Sheraton was a radical new approach combining the power of a solidbody with the easy-to-carry feel of an archtop. In fact, the Sheraton was one of the first guitars Epiphone exhibited at the 1958 NAMM show to announce it was back in business. The original Sheraton combined the same feedback-resistant qualities of the ES-335 with historic Epiphone inlays and cosmetics. Today, the modern Sheraton II has many of the same features that made the original Sheraton a classic but with a few choice refinements. Epiphone devotee John Lee Hooker perhaps had the ultimate Sheraton II description when he called it an “out done 335.”
The Sheraton II features a laminated maple body with a mahogany center block, just like vintage originals. The hard maple SlimTaper C profile neck is glued-in and set by hand and features a 24.75″ scale with a 1.68″ nut, 22 medium jumbo frets, a rosewood fingerboard with “Block and Triangle” Pearloid/Abalone fretboard inlays, and the historic Epiphone “Tree of Life” headstock inlay. For tuning, the Sheraton II features gold Grover™ Roto-matic 18:1 ratio machine heads.
The headstock, body, and neck has beautiful multiple binding. A gold Epiphone LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge provides steady intonation. While the original Sheraton featured a split-trapeze Frequensator™ tailpiece, the modern Sheraton-II features a gold StopBar tailpiece for improved sustain. The bound pickguard has a “tortoise” style look with a classic metal “E”.
She’s truly near mint & she comes in her original black hard case.
