Overview

The 50th Anniversary "1962" Sheraton E212T Outfit features the original early '60s Sheraton profile with a laminated maple body with period correct binding, a 5-layer bound tortoise-style pickguard with metal foil "E", and a mahogany neck with a 1960s SlimTaper™ profile. The rosewood fingerboard has 22 medium jumbo frets, pearloid and Abalone Block and Triangle inlays, and Grover™ "kidney" style machine heads with a 14:1 ratio on a dovewing 3-on-a-side headstock with pearloid vine inlay. The Sheraton was Epiphone's original flagship, top-of-the-line semi-hollow archtop and the "1962" Anniversary puts the Sheraton back at the top where it belongs---in style.

The Sheraton's electronics feature CTS potentiometers, Epiphone's non-rotating ¼" output jack, Top Hat knobs with metal inserts, and Gibson USA mini-humbuckers for superior sound. The Sheraton comes with the Frequensator™ tailpiece.

The reissue Epiphone Tremotone™ tremolo bar was carefully redesigned and retooled to function and look exactly like the original but with subtle improvements to ensure that your Tremotone™ will last much longer than vintage models. The E212T Outfit comes with a period-correct hard case and a 1962 Collection Certificate of Authenticity.

All three of these Epiphone classics will be issued in limited quantities of 1,962 pieces.

All of the "1962" Collection instruments were designed by Epiphone luthiers who worked from the best examples of vintage originals found in Epiphone's own collection in Nashville. Measure for measure, the "1962" Collection recreates the look, sound, and feel of the originals first produced at the Gibson & Epiphone factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan in 1962, the same factory that produced the Les Paul Standard, the SG, and the 335.

Beautiful Guitar. Needed some work at first.

By Jeffery Guyse

from Orange, CA

This is a very nice guitar...now that I have worked on it considerably. I bought mine from GC online and they shipped from a store (LV, NV). The one I got must have been on display. 2 of the plastic knobs where stripped out, all of the pots and the input jack were loose, one pot was so loose a customer must have spun it and tore all of the wires off. The pots for some reasons had the lock washers on top of the body instead of between the body and the pots from the inside. The input jack was damaged, D shaped instead of O shaped. Bridge buzzed like crazy. Took it all apart, replaced the jack with a gold Switchcraft, the bridge with a gold Tonepros AV2. Resoldered all of the pots and put the lockwashers where they belong so you do not see them from the top of the guitar under the knobs. Replaced the knobs with Gibson brand of the same style. Sounds great and plays great...now. Very John Lee Hooker sounding. Note: I have read that all E212T models have an E212TV blue label in the F-hole. The one I got does too.
