Elitist Sheraton

Recommended Posts

Hello all. New to this site and this is my first post. I picked up a new Elitist Sheraton 3 weeks ago and was looking on the web for some user reviews, not too many out there that I can find. Anyways, I absolutely LOVE this guitar. First day I brought her home I sat her on a stand, cracked open a beer and just stared at it. What a thing of beauty! My buddy has a 335 that he paid $1500 more than I did and he's jealous. Poor basterd! This guitar's got some tough competition though, I also have an Elitist Casino that is killer for getting that blues sound I'm after. P-90's in one and mini NY's in the other, seems like a great 1-2 punch for blues. I was just wondering what other Sheraton owners thought about this piece of artwork. I believe my strat and les paul will be getting jealous for years to come.

You've got two great Elitists that I wouldn't part with under any circumstances. I would like my wife to bury me with mine, but she'll probably cremate me (and I DON'T want them cremated with me).

Sweet one two punch indeed! Blues and R&R are wonderful with those two guitars! I've owned an Elite Sheraton and Elitist Casino for 3 or so years now and they are fantastic in all areas. Enjoy! Here are mine:

Congrats on your new Elitist Sheraton. You're lucky to have snagged another, especially one as sought after as the Sherri. The Elitist line was the value of the century, imo. Like Svet and others, I am a big fan, too:

 

Elitist Byrdland and Broadway (first two from left in bottom row)

An Elitist J200 (last from the right, top row), plus two Elitist 1964 Paul McCartney Texans and an Elitist Texan (middle row center)

An Elitist Casino, Elitist John Lennon Revolution Casino, Elitist John Lennon '65 Casino (top row), plus Elitist Dot (bottom row, 3nd from right)

An Elitist SG and two Elitist Les Paul Standards:

lol, I have trouble getting them all played but I manage. What you see there is only about 1/3 of my collection too so you can imagine the difficulty I have playing em all, keeping them in tune and up to spec and all that other stuff. As always Red, love your gear!

Welcome to the forum Camaro!!

You've now entered the land of the Epi freaks. You can see by the pics posted here that

some of the guys have some very nice gear. All those beautiful hollows,

and semi-hollows. I have only one Epi. An 08 Les Paul Ultra 2, and it is also a

great guitar.

Congrats on the new Sheri.

WOW' date=' all VERY NICE guitars!

I still love my strat (CS '69's in it), but these two here are unique. Totally different sound than anything I've ever played before. Plus they just "feel right" while playing them. A little more personal than a strat or L.P.
