I think my thoughts have more than likely been covered in previous answers, but I would say it is a matter of tone and feel. I have a full hollow body Emperor and it is more acoustic and woody in tonal character, while my Riviera with the semi-hollow gets a more beefy electric tone. I love both sounds, but if you have to pick, I would think the 335 would give you enough of a contrast over your LP. The Sheraton is a sweet and versatile guitar for blues and rock, as well as jazz. I have owned all of the guitars we are talking about save the Casino. I think you will be happy either way, but if you try them first unplugged and plugged in, your heart will guide your decision.

If you like the sound of P-90s the Blueshawk has hum cancelling ability (60 cycle noise) using its dummy coil. P-90s have their own tone genere going on. If you intend to go back and forth between a guitar with humbuckers and P-90s you may not like them. The advantage P-90s have is extreme range of usable tone. To get the most out of a P-90 your amp and overdrives need to be tweaked for them usually a mid boost with the OD drive no more than about half way. The Blueshawk has a Varitone switch with 6 positions (like Lucille). I use #5 for both pickups setting and #6 bridge pickup when I need my lead to punch through. The rest of the time the Varitone is off. The only thing I have found wrong is that the Epiphone Deluxe Tuners (with the rectangular casing) do not last very long and I would recommend replacing them with good quality tuners, making a major improvement in the guitar or any Epiphone that uses them. The Epiphone Blueshawk has a few minor differences from the Gibson BluesHawk that I am temped to call improvements. I own both, seem my my Blueshawk/BluesHawk comparison.

I own 7 P-90 guitars Epiphone's and Gibson's. My Blueshawk and BluesHawk are my most versatile guitars both with great sound.

You may notice I make a distinction between Blueshawk and BluesHawk. That is because the Epiphone is one word Blueshawk and the Gibson is two words Blues Hawk.

The Casino is a cool guitar for the price. P90 are not Gibson' s but they are not bad.

The Sheraton is a great Gibson ES-335-like but this guitar need good humbuckers and better electronics.

I actually sometimes miss the more confrontational style of SG Player, Rev 6 :D

But you're apparently working on your attitude. Good for you.

Hey good people, I'm looking to purchase an epi casino or casino coupe or maybe a sheraton 2. Any advice, opinions, or just comments on your experiences with these guitars will be appreciated
thanks BDuke

ps thoughts on an EPI Blueshawk


Update: just bought a early 90's Sherry. 92-94 its hard to date these early Epi's. anyway love it. It is about half the weight of my LP. two full sized humbuckers really sound great through my blues cube.
