Differences between a Sheraton II and a Dot

Hi,

 

I am new to the forum and playing. Are the differences in the Sheraton II and the Dot, primarily cosmetic and hardware quality? I like the Sheraton II, but wonder about spending that much money on my first guitar, especially as I have curious children.

 

Any thoughts?

 

Thanks,

five ply laminated maple and mahogany neck.

For me that was a good selling point. Stiff!

also it's a flatter neck on mine, and I like that.

I can get along with rounder ok.. my studio is fatter. but I prefer the thinner neck.

 

 

gold hardware and all that binding is cosmetic, but there sure is a lot of it.

the kids aren't going to damage it anymore without it, I don't think.

 

hmm. I just checked specs. new ones are different:

 

Pickups: 2 Humbuckers

 

Hardware: Gold

 

Scale: 24.75 in.

 

Nut Width: 1.68 in.

 

Neck Joint: Set

 

Neck Material: 3-piece Maple...................................

 

Fingerboard: Rosewood/Block and Triangle

 

Binding: Body/Neck/Headstock

 

Body Material: Laminated Maple

 

Top: Laminated Maple

 

Finishes: Ebony, Natural, Vintage Sunburst

 

otherwise it's the block inlays, multi ply binding, bound f holes, neck headstock binding, mulit ply bound pickguard.
