Epiphone’s new Emily Wolfe Sheraton Stealth signature model is now available to order. The Texan blues-rocker has made a few changes to this classic semi-hollow design, which really make it stand out from the crowd. Let’s take a closer look at the specs.
Epiphone Emily Wolfe Sheraton Stealth
This classic semi-hollow design has had a few tweaks to the formula, and isn’t your run-of-the-mill Sheraton. The first thing you will notice on the Epiphone Emily Wolfe Sheraton Stealth are the diamond f-holes, a break from tradition and reminiscent of the Dave Grohl/Trini Lopez signature models. And you can’t miss the neat Black Aged Gloss finish with complementary gold hardware. You also get the Vine of Life inlay on the headstock and Mother Of Pearl block inlays with lightning bolts in abalone.
The body has laminated maple top, back and sides, with a maple centre block, and a multi-ply binding that completes the look. It has a 24.75″ scale length mahogany neck with a 60s SlimTaper “C” profile. The neck is glued to the body and has an Indian laurel fingerboard with a 12″ radius.
The guitar comes loaded with a set of Epiphone Alnico Classic ProBuckers 1 and 2 humbuckers in the neck and bridge positions. These are then wired via a three-way pickup selector and CTS pots, with two volumes and a single tone control. So some quality components here, which should make for a sweet sounding semi-hollow.
Hardware includes a set of Grover ‘kidney bean’ Rotomatic tuners, a Graph Tech nut and an Epiphone LockTone Pro tune-o-matic-style bridge. The guitar ships in an EpiLite case and, as a whole package, its a pretty sweet deal. I think Epiphone has made some great quality signature models over the last five or six years, and this one looks like it slots right into that bracket, offering a lot of bang for your buck.
You can see Emily talk more about the guitar in the video below, where she also give a sneak preview of the new Epiphone B.B. King Lucille model.
