    We usually talk more friendly to each other !
    And new members usually introduce themselves here:
    http://www.epiphonetalk.com/forums/introductions.7/


    a look at their homepage tells:
    Sheraton-II Pro >Nut Width 1-11/16"
    ES-335 PRO > Nut Width 1.68"

    Both neckshapes are described as '60s slim-taper D type' IIRC
    and all of those neckshapes vary, because different employees in different factories have different sanding skills

    You need to feel with your hands if it fits your taste or not

    My experience is they are different, also a Sheraton has a multi piece maple neck.

    That's more like it. :cheers:

    As Pete said,
    He's absolutely right.

    When I was looking for my first* guitar I was dead set on an Explorer. Nothing else would do. But a buddy insisted that I at least try some other axes first and I'm glad he did. Turns out that while I love the Explorer look, and it's a great front man / lead axe on stage, it's like wrestling a coffee table at home / seated which is where and how I practice and take lessons. I tried a bunch of different models and brands before I landed on my G400 and I'm glad I did. Mine felt right from the start. I won't get into mods, because that's a separate deal. Suffice to say, if she doesn't feel right, she won't tell you what she "wants".

    You might find you prefer a Gretch of something. Best way to find out is to test drive them for yourself.


    *I had a Strat copy umpteen years ago, but the guy that was going to teach me shipped out. It got put so far on the back burner it was in the freezer. Didn't even faze me when it was stolen.

    The neck on my Gretsch Streamliner is 1.7", about the same as the Casino Coupe. I also vote for trying a few out. Neck width does not equal neck shape does not equal fretboard radius. Also, if you mainly play seated (as I do), a wide, boxy guitar may not be comfortable for us of... less average height.

    .

    I don't understand. Is the Epi LP borrowed or shared (I'm assuming not stolen :))? Or do you mean that the next guitar will your first new guitar purchase?

    Benefit of the doubt - First guitar he picked out for himself. So, first guitar that was really his.
