Tones with coil tap on Sheraton II Pro

Recommended Posts

I'm very interested in a Sheraton. I'm curious about the clean tones using the coil tap in both the bridge and neck. I've heard it described a tele like. My main interest in this guitar is for blues, classic rock, and a bit of (bad) jazz, but if I could get some bright, twang snap for some country chickin pickin,  that would be icing on the cake. Any input and/or samples would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks in advance!

I have one,  (I also have a '97 USA Standard Tele, -- as well as have had about 4 telecasters in my life time, - don't ask how long that's been to date! LOL!.) 

I am quite familiar with how one compares to the other.  The Pro Buckers are good pickups, and the coil split tones are very usable,  but that said, I can't say that I agree where you'd be dipping that deeply into telecaster territory with these.    That's not a knock on the guitar, it's a great axe, but if you want the sound of telecaster,   you need a telecaster..

Like you, OP, I picked up an Epi Les Paul Custom Pro that also has the coil taps. I found that I got more out of the coil tap feature once I stopped thinking of it as "Strat/Tele mode," and started thinking of it as "clean chicken pickin' mode." The coil-tapped Sheraton won't sound like a Tele, but it will cover much of the same stylistic ground quite well.

Thank you both. I mostly want it for what a guitar like this does. Not really wanting a tele right now, but was cool to know if it could dip into that country twang in the future
