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 modern 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 Ivory and Black binding. The Sheraton-II PRO is available in new Midnight Sapphire finish along with Vintage Sunburst, Ebony, and Wine Red.

5-Piece Laminated Neck

The 24.75” scale neck is made of 5-piece laminated hard Maple/Walnut with beautiful 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 features the new Graphtech® NuBone XL™ nut that is as hard as bone but will last a lifetime without chipping or cracking. Graphtech molds and engineers each NuBone XL™ nut for consistent tone and string balance.

ProBucker Humbuckers

The Epiphone Sheraton™-II PRO now is powered by 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 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” 500K Ohm potentiometers along with a 3-way pickup selector with an ivory-colored toggle cap.

Epiphone Gold Hardware

The 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. An optional hard case is available from Authorized Epiphone Dealers.
