Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar with Maple Top, Back, and Sides, Mahogany Neck, Laurel Fingerboard, 2 Mini Humbucking Pickups, and Tremotone Tailpiece – Cherry

 

Vintage-inspired Tribute to Epiphone’s Most Elegant Semi-hollow

Celebrate a century and a half of Epiphone excellence with the 150th Anniversary Sheraton! This guitar is a full-featured tribute to the early days of Epiphone’s acquisition by Gibson — a time when Gibson and Epiphone instruments were crafted side-by-side in Gibson’s historic Kalamazoo, Michigan factory. So, it’s only fitting that this Sheraton’s exceptionally resonant semi-hollow layered maple body is loaded with a pair of Gibson-made mini humbucking pickups that represent a tonal crossroads between single-coil shimmer and all-out humbucker might. Next, the 1-piece mahogany neck comes complete with a sleek slab of Indian laurel, all carved into a speedy ’60s SlimTaper profile for an effortless feel from the first fret all the way up to the 22nd. It’s all finished off with an elegant assortment of aesthetic appointments, including 7-ply body binding, glittering gold hardware, distinctive abalone/mother-of-pearl fingerboard inlays, and a period-correct Tremotone tailpiece for smooth and subtle tremolo tonalities.

 

Premium Gibson-made Mini humbucking pickups

To celebrate a century and a half of instrument-making expertise, Epiphone dug deep into the Sheraton’s history, all the way back to the days when Gibson and Epiphone instruments were built in the very same Kalamazoo, Michigan factory. The Epiphone 150th Anniversary Sheraton is clearly a visual tribute to that lauded era, but two Gibson-made mini-humbucking pickups seal the sonic deal with a vintage-inspired tone straight out of the ’60s. What do they sound like? Gibson mini-humbuckers split the difference between the full-bodied warmth of a humbucker and the sparkling, defined top end of a single-coil. It’s a remarkably versatile hum-canceling pickup design that’s equally at home dishing out snarling dirty tones, sparkling cleans, and everything else in between.

 

Top-notch tonewoods

In choosing to take after the original specs of the Epiphone Sheraton, a 100% maple center block body was the first significant step. With this brighter tonality and feedback-resistant design, you can expect a fantastic attack with much more naturally articulate and clear responsiveness than other tonewoods. The well-sustaining 1-piece mahogany neck is also true to the past but houses a smoother Indian laurel fingerboard that only slightly differs from the Sheraton’s original rosewood appointment. Atop the fingerboard are 22 fast-playing frets, marked by the classic mother-of-pearl block inlays that feature Sheraton-correct abalone “V” inserts.

 

The epitome of Sheraton style

The luxurious Sheraton has always been one of Epiphone’s premier semi-hollow instruments. However, the Epiphone 150th Anniversary Sheraton truly pulls out all the stops — aesthetic and otherwise. This instrument is a proper tribute to the Sheraton’s 1960s heyday, boasting beautiful 7-ply top binding, gorgeous mother-of-pearl inlays on the headstock and laurel fingerboard, and a jaw-dropping replication of the rarest Sheraton finish of them all: an elegant cherry stain that graced less than 100 instruments during the Sheraton’s initial Gibson-built run. However, the pièce de resistance is found in the Epiphone 150th Anniversary Sheraton’s idiosyncratic Tremotone tailpiece — a rock-solid tremolo system that’s simply bursting with vintage style.
