    Hailed by blues legend John Lee Hooker as 'an out-did 335', the Sheraton has been renowned for decades for its combination of superior tone and beautiful pearloid and abalone inlays. Originally released in 1959, the inspiration for the 'thin-line' or ES series has its roots in Les Paul's first solidbody guitar, 'The Log', that Les built in Epiphone's factory in Manhattan in 1940.

    'The Log' was made from Epiphone parts with a 4 x 4 inch piece of Pinewood down the middle. The ES-series is also semi-hollow with a solid centre, which makes it more resistant to feedback than a typical archtop guitar.
    Inside the Epiphone Sheraton-II PRO
    John Lee Hooker described the original Sheraton as an 'outdid-335' for its striking fingerboard inlay, classic shape, and elegant ivory and black binding on the top, back, neck, headstock and f-holes. The new Sheraton-II PRO has the same profile and is made from Laminated Maple and topped with a bound 'Tortoise' style pickguard with a signature metal 'E' (for Epiphone!) and the same classic binding.
    5-Piece Laminated Neck
    The 24.75 inch scale neck is hand-set and made of 5-piece laminated hard Maple/Walnut with a beautiful Rosewood fingerboard with block and triangle pearloid and abalone inlays, 22 medium jumbo frets, and a large vintage style 'Clipped Ear' headstock with the classic 'tree of life' motif. The Epiphone Sheraton-II PRO also now comes with the new Graphtech® NuBone XL™ nut that is as hard as bone but will last a lifetime without chipping or cracking. Graphtech moulds and engineers each NuBone XL™ nut for consistent tone and string balance as well as precise string spacing.
    ProBucker Humbuckers
    The Epiphone Sheraton™ II-PRO now features critically acclaimed ProBucker™ humbuckers.
    The first humbuckers (often called 'Patent Applied For' for the telltale sticker found on the back of the pickups) were made at the Epiphone/Gibson factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan in the late 50s and have acquired a mythical status among guitar players. Epiphone ProBucker pickups have that elusive vintage sound because they are made with the same alloy as the originals--18% Nickel Silver unit bases and covers--along with Sand cast Alnico II magnets and high quality 4-conductor lead wire. Each ProBucker pickup is also vacuum wax potted to eliminate microphonics.
    The Epiphone Sheraton-II PRO has a ProBucker-2™ in the neck position and a slightly hotter ProBucker-3™ in the lead position. Both pickups also have coil-splitting via their individual volume controls. Coil-splitting allows a player to turn a humbucker pickup into a single-coil pickup for endless tone combinations. Each ProBucker pickup's volume and tone control use 1 inch 500K Ohm potentiometers along with a 3-way pickup selector with an ivory-coloured toggle cap.
    Epiphone Gold Hardware
    The Epiphone Sheraton™ II-PRO has rock solid nickel hardware in elegant gold with an unbeatable LockTone™ Tune-o-matic bridge and StopBar tailpiece combo. Tuning is easy and reliable with gold Grover® Rotomatic machine heads with a pro-level 18:1 tuning ratio. The Sheraton-II PRO is strung at the factory with D'Addario® 10-46 gauge strings.
