The craftsmanship wasn't terribly impressive, but it wasn't bad. (The Epi stopbar already has the modifications I was planning to make to my Les Paul's stopbar.) Plugged in, the sound is good, but not great. When I get around to changing mine - that's what I'm using. I have owned several including an old Gibson L42 from the 40's, a 1967 ES 175, a late 60's Gretch Country Gentlemen and one of my favorites, a Late 60's Guild Starfire with Bigsby and two hummers. The new Gibsons are expensive and in some of the models the workmanship was less than stellar.
My guitar instructor has a 30-year old example that is just incredible. Overall the Epi Sheraton II is a good guitar for the money. The pickups on mine came a little low so I raised them a bit.
