Sheraton - A nice guitar

Nov 5, 2005
Review by  
Rated Show

Pros:Good sounds at all volume levels Stays in tune well Easy to play Looks good

Cons:Heavy!

I couldn't give a toss what name it carries. I don't buy a guitar because it has Gibson written all over it, I buy on the basis of "if it feels right then it probably is" and my instinct usually proves correct.
After proper setting up (lowering the action, setting pickup heights etc) and fitting with some light gauge flatwound jazz strings I found I had bought a real gem. It plays beautifully and through my 1960's Selmar tube amp sounds magnificent no matter what the music is - classical, heavy rock, even jazz!
The pickup selector switch became a little bit noisy after about 3 months, a very common problem on all makes of guitar using this type of switch, but the trick here is to give it a TINY squirt of switch cleaner occasionally. Also I suspect that the gold plating is thin and will start to wear shortly, but I didn't buy it because of the plating!
Quality of manufacture is good, it feels right and sounds great - what more can a guitarist ask?
