Epiphone has announced the release of the Epiphone Emily Wolfe “White Wolfe” Sheraton. Created by guitarist, singer-songwriter, and producer Emily Wolfe and the luthiers at Epiphone in Nashville, TN, the “White Wolfe” Sheraton marks Wolfe’s second Epiphone signature guitar and is available worldwide at authorized Epiphone dealers and online.
Background of Epiphone Sheraton & Emily Wolfe
Played by artists such as the legendary blues artist John Lee Hooker, Noel Gallagher and Gem Archer of Oasis, The Edge of U2, Matthew Followill of Kings of Leon and Wolfe, with its thin line, double-cutaway, semi-hollow body design–similar to the Gibson ES-335–the influential Epiphone Sheraton continues to shape sound throughout generations of players.
The Epiphone Emily Wolfe “White Wolfe” Sheraton is based on the triple-threat rock & roll singer, songwriter, and guitarist’s popular Sheraton Stealth. Once again, Emily has lent her creativity to develop her new artist model. The Emily Wolfe “White Wolfe”Sheraton is equipped with an Indian laurel fretboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and mother-of-pearl block inlay on the front, Emily’s wolf logo and a white gloss Emily Wolfe signature on the rear and is outfitted with Grover Rotomatic tuning machines and a Graph Tech nut.
An Epiphone LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and Stop Bar tailpiece hold down the other end of the strings and contribute to the impressive sustain of the instrument. The electronics include full-sized Epiphone Alnico Classic PRO humbucker pickups paired with CTS potentiometers for smooth control over individual pickup volume and overall tone. It’s finished in Aged Bone White paired with lightly aged gold hardware. An EpiLite case is included.
With blistering guitar riffs, skillful songwriting, and soulful vocals, guitarist, songwriter, and producer Emily Wolfe has been making waves with her powerful vocals and dynamic guitar skills and shows no signs of slowing down in 2023. Wolfe’s music combines elements of classic rock, blues and alternative, creating a unique and energetic sound. She’s garnered attention for her passionate live performance and has been recognized as an emerging talent in the rock music scene. Her work and live shows have been praised as transcendent, sticky and sweet, bad-ass, and provocative.
Wolfe recently wrapped the self-produced follow-up to her 2021 album Outlier which the Austin American Statesman hailed as featuring “blazing guitar that runs balance against compellingly melodic vocals that range from scorching to soothing.” Wolfe has been out on the road headlining shows, and supporting The Gaslight Anthem, and she will continue touring with her trio throughout the rest of the year, in support of her forthcoming new album, due for release in late summer – early fall 2023.
For 150 years, Epiphone has been a leading innovator in instrument design with models like the Casino, the Texan, and Masterbilt Century Archtop Collection. Epiphonebegan as the “House of Stathopoulo” family business in Sparta in the 1870s and rose to fame during the jazz age in Manhattan before joining Gibson brands in 1957. Today, Epiphone continues to make history from its headquarters in Nashville, TN.
