Overview

The 50th Anniversary "1962" Sheraton E212TV 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 Tremotone™ tremolo 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 E212TV 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.

50 years of excellence in one Guitar!

By STEVE KAREHA

from Parma Heights, Ohio

I fell in love with this guitar the moment I saw it, and it has NOT let me down. I was lookin for something special to add to my collection, and a tremolo unit was a must. Epiphone has truly re-created a classic in this package. It plays as good as it looks. The finish is flawless, and the tone is as sweet as any I have heard. From blues, to rock, to my favorite Christmas tunes, this guitar handles them all. I highly recommend it to anyone!
