At home with his Sheraton-II

New York based guitarist Matt Marshak blends jazz, urban groove, pop, funk, R&B, world beat, and more into his own unique style. He's played some of the largest stages in the world and has performed on the same bill with legends such as Santana, Larry Carlton, George Benson, David Sanborn, Fourplay, and many more. We are proud to call Matt our friend and love the fact that Epiphone has been a huge part of his sound for many years. At the center of that tone is his beloved Epiphone Sheraton.

Matt recently took time out from recording in his studio to demonstrate some of the tonal possibilities of the Epiphone Sheraton.

Hailed by blues legend John Lee Hooker as "an out-did 335," the Sheraton has been renown for decades for its combination of superior tone and beautiful pearloid and abalone inlay. Originally released in 1959, the inspiration for the "thin-line" or ES series has its roots in Les Paul's first solidbody guitar, "The Log," that Les built in Epiphone's factory in Manhattan in 1940.

The latest version of Epiphone's most influential "thin-line" semi-hollowbody electric archtop features our critically acclaimed ProBucker™ pickups with coil-splitting and a Graphtech® NuBone XL™ nut. Learn more here.
