2017 Epiphone Sheraton II Pro
An exquisite semi-hollow body archtop guitar at a fraction of the price of a Gibson equivalent, this 2017 Epiphone Sheraton II Pro is in like new condition and is just waiting for a new home. It has a beautiful ebony finish with gold hardware and comes with its original hard shell case (one of the hinges is broken). For some reason, the "E" was removed from the pickguard but other than that, the guitar is in excellent condition.
From Epiphone's website:
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.
Hailed 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’s 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.
