Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Whether you are on the lookout for a great beginners guitar or you just love the sound of the Epiphone semi hollow body tone, or your budget will just not stretch to a Gibson, then the Epiphone Sheraton II electric guitar will not disappoint. What follows is information about the Epiphone Sheraton including the features and benefits from the wood used, pick ups and design in general so you have all of the info you need if you are a beginner, pro or buying for someone as a present that will allow you to buy the best guitar for you.

The Sheraton is a semi hollow body guitar which has a solid wood centre to combat feedback and, on either side, it has chambers with sound holes. This type of guitar can be used to play any genre of music.

If you are buying for a beginner, get them what they have asked for. The reason is that they will probably like the guitar that their hero uses so, if you buy it, then he or she is more likely to keep it up. Do not worry if the guitar they want is out of price range, as there are loads of affordable options available - just like this Epiphone Sheraton which is based on a Gibson and is a best seller.

Even if you don't like the artist yourself, remember that being able to play an instrument is a major factor in a persons development as it provides self confidence, self government, imaginativeness and hand - eye coordination. Also, one day, they may be rich!

If you are buying for yourself, do not take other peoples advice as they may not have the same tastes as you. A guitar is a way of expression, just like the clothes you wear. Buy the best guitar you can afford and, if it's electric, a good amp.

When buying for the gigging guitarist, look at what their favourite artists play and pick accordingly. You could buy them a gift card and let them pick or, if you want to buy it and he/she doesn't like it, most stores have a returns policy. If you want, you could buy them an instrument like a sitar or banjo which would probably go down well.

On to the technical stuff concerning the Epiphone Sheraton II and their advantages.

The semi hollow body means that it is lightweight for prolonged playing on your shoulder, and has the resonance of a hollow bodied guitar with the sustain of a solid body and, as mentioned, provides resistance to feedback.

The scale length of the Sheraton is 24 and 3/4 inches which is the same as a lot of Gibson guitars. This makes playing a little easier as it needs less string tension and also gives lesser treble. You can put heavier gauge strings which provide added bass and so you get more power from the pick ups.

The pick ups on the Sheraton 2 are humbuckers. They give you a smooth, round tone, and provide a high signal strength for your amp to use. There is a toggle that allows you to choose just the bridge pick up, the neck pick up or both. You are also able to control the treble and volume of each pick up separately using the pots.

The wood used for the neck is maple which is what most necks are made off as it is tough so lasts under the tension of the strings and adds treble tones. The body is made of laminated maple which brings out the higher frequencies.

The fretboard is made from rosewood due to it being a hardwood which can take the punishment of metal strings on it.

A great sounding guitar, with exceptional construction at a low price, there is no surprise that the Epiphone Sheraton II Electric Guitar is used by so many guitarists around the world.
