Featuring ProBucker pickups w/coil-splitting and new Graphtech¨ NuBone XL nut
The new Epiphone Sheraton-II PRO honors Epiphone's most influential "thin-line" semi-hollowbody electric archtop, now offered in a beautiful Wine Red finish plus critically acclaimed ProBucker pickups with coil-splitting and a Graphtech¨ NuBone XL nut.
AN EPIPHONE ICONHailed by blues legend John Lee Hooker as "an out-did 335," the Sheraton has been renown for decades for its combination of superior tone and beautiful pearloid and abalone inlay. 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 factory in Manhattan in 1940.
"The Log" was made from Epiphone parts with a 4" x 4" piece of Pinewood down the middle. The ES-series is also semi-hollow with a solid center, which makes it more resistant to feedback than a typical archtop guitar.
