Vintage models (with vintage problems) can’t complete with our Epiphone Dot, which is simply one of the best deals today for guitar players who want the classic sound of an ES-335 at an affordable price.

Epiphone is long famous for its own original semi-hollowbody models from the 1950s Kalamazoo, Michigan era, including the Riviera and the Sheraton.

Now, the Epiphone Dot, named in reference to its simple "Dot" fingerboard inlays, brings the sustain and resonance of the clsssic semi-hollow design for a bounty less than most solid body guitars. The “Dot” is the same axe that has been the bell weather of every rock and roll breakthrough. And now for the first time, the “Dot” puts that classic sound and over 40 years of refinements in your hands, the Epiphone way.

Dot Deluxe

After a long hiatus, I got back into playing again, in 1996. I wanted to try something different, and the Dot was what I picked up. Strapping it on, it felt like a nice fit-comfortable, 'easy to get along with'. I played it a bit, and the neck and fingerboard felt very 'right'; so I bought it. If I had any significant issues, I wouldn't have kept it. As it is, it consistently keeps in tune, as well as intonation. I initially had some problems with buzzing around the 11th thru 14th fret. This falls under the realm of expected adjustments. What I have is natural, pretty 'plain Jane', but it sounds like a million dollars. I have had it for about twenty years now, and the selector switch is starting to go-an easy fix. I also am toying with installing a varitone selector. This guitar has always gone on gigs-no matter what else I brought. These guitars are not toys, and I do not recommend putting it into the hands of an inexperienced child. If treated right, Epiphone guitars-and I have about twenty-will treat you right as well; and this axe is definitely no exception!

When i picked up this guitar for the first time i wa skeptital, because i was originally there to buy an Es-339, but it thought why not give this one a try. Compared to the 339 this one has a deeper tone and is way better on rock and blues. Honestly the only thing i had to do to this guitar was lower the string hight (but thats my peersonal prefference) and a few very dry frets. But those are easy fixes.

i just got this guitar yesterday (not online but directly from a Sam Ash store) and i can't put it down. It is amazingly easy to play and does superbly well with muting. the sound and quality are absolutely fantastic. the finish on it (i got the vintange burst finish) is of amazing quality. It does amazingly with Rock-style guitar as well as blues and Jazz. i absolutely LOVE this guitar.

Beware buying any guitar online. Play it in a store first, then order online if you must. I bought this guitar in cherry from a different online retailer and ended up with a serious lemon. Loose pots, horrible buzz, finish issues, etc. I can't believe it got past quality control in the US. Anyway, looking past those issues, this guitar is a great way to get into the semi-hollow guitar world. The sound (minus the buzz) was excellent and the finish (minus a few small blemishes) was very good. I can easily recommend this for a [$] starter guitar. Even as a second practice guitar for the pros, this would fit the bill.

Amazing Guitar for the Price

I got this guitar as a 16th birthday gift and let me tell you it is unreal. The pick-ups give you a warm tone that is perfect for blues. This guitar can also do some heavy soloing. The guitar also sounds good unplugged. Also it is extremely light for its size. I use it through my Line 6 Spider 3 15 watt amp, and its sounds amazing. I use the product for shows as well as just sitting around at home playing. Perfect guitar for beginners or professionals.
