Re-creations of the King of Endless Boogie's 2 favorite axes!
John Lee Hooker loved playing his Sheraton. And now, for a limited time only, Epiphone is re-creating the original USA-made Sheraton in 2 versions--the '64 Sheraton and Sheraton II. The difference between the 2 axes was the Frequensator tailpiece on the former and the Stopbar on the latter. Both of these exceptional instruments are true to the mid '60s specs and carry the following features: 5-layer bound pickguard with metal E, original block and triangle mother-of-pearl inlays, 2 gold-plated Gibson "New York" mini-humbuckers, gold hardware, and nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Each comes stamped with John Lee's original number and has a hand-numbered series label inside.
