In 1958 Epiphone produced its first guitars in the Gibson Kalamazoo factory. It was a momentous time for both companies and especially for Epiphone fans and dealers who only a few years before had feared the company might not survive the decade.

The Sheraton not only loudly declared that Epiphone was back in business, but it also heralded a new era in guitar design that put the Kalamazoo factor way out in front in giving musicians exciting new instruments. For decades, Epiphone and Gibson had been bitter rivals in archtop design. After the two companies merged, engineer's from both companies combined decades of expertise and trade secrets to create the Electric Spanish (ES) collection which included the legendary ES-335 semi-hollowbody.
A Historic Epiphone Icon
The inspiration for the ES series had its roots in Les Paul's infamous 'Log' guitar, built late at night in at Epiphone's New York City factory just before the start of World War II in 1941. Les' 'Log' was made from Epiphone parts and a 4 x 4 inch piece of pinewood. The feedback-resistant qualities of the ES-335 were 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, the Sheraton-II features a Stopbar tailpiece for improved sustain and the 5-piece neck is made from Hard Maple/Walnut.
Quality Built With Classic Features
The Sheraton II is voiced with a pair of Epiphone's Alnico Classic™ Humbucker pickups for authentic vintage tone, the Sheraton II is constructed with a gorgeous maple neck and a traditional laminated body with a mahogany centre block for amazing tone and sustain that works well every musical genre from Pop to Rock to Blues to Jazz.
Other details include a rosewood fingerboard, quality electronic parts including full-size, 1 inch 500K Ohm potentiometers, Epiphone's all-metal pickup selector switch, the historic 'Tree of Life' headstock inlay with 'Block and Triangle' Pearl/Abalone fretboard inlays, and a heavy-duty output jack.
The Gold hardware includes Grover® machine heads for superior tuning stability and Epiphone's exclusive LockTone ™ locking Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece for increased sustain.
