    Jack first let me compliment both your playing and for conducting a demo playing each guitar the way many of us would play both clean and with overdrive. Many don't bother with using that approach.

    I've owned a Sheraton II and I currently own a Casino and my preference between these two matches your own and for the same reason. The Casino has a very unique voicing all of it's I have not found with any other guitar.

    I'll also appreciate it's greater degree of clarity and for me it's actually a more versatile guitar than the Sheraton II was. Clean it has a nice chime to it and when pushed with some gain it has a nice edginess I like. The P90s are also very responsive to pick attack and picking location without having to constantly adjust volume and tone to alter it's basic voicings.

    Thanks again for posting an excellent demo video. :cheers:

    Great video bud! I've been loving your channel, keep up the good work.

    PS. did you forget about John Lee Hooker and his love of Sheratons? eheheh (I do understand what you mean though, contemporary players don't have an association with the Sheraton like with the Casino, where it is immediate and obvious)...

    ya know it’s funny I really did go back and forth on whether to talk about JLH, but I was rambling on and on enough already so I decided to cut it back
