Epiphone The Dot CH

Electric GuitarThe guitars of the Gibson ES series are meanwhile all classics and it's hard to imagine Blues and Rock music without them. But you can also see them in jazz, because despite Les Paul-Elektrik, the semi-acoustic guitars always keep a good portion of 'wood' - and that means acoustic timbre in the sound.

The Epiphone Dot is based on the ES 335, and has a continuous sustain block under the strings. This makes it much more patient with feedback and also very useful for distorted sounds; known for example from Alvin Lee, but also from jazz rock greats such as Larry Carlton and Lee Ritenour. The term 'Dot' refers to the dot inlays on the neck in contrast to the block or crown inlays more commonly found on Gibsons.

As close as I'm ever gonna get to the 335
DanielPicon, 06.05.2017
I always daydreamed about having a Gibson 335, and to be honest never saw myself realistically owning one, because they are freaking expensive.

Somehow life was already good to me at one point, and I was able to get my hands on a Gibson les Paul gold top joe bonamassa model, so well, my Gibson cravings are satisfied.

However I still had this 335 craving, once I saw this epiphone version and how similar it was to the real thing, I immediately looked it up on YouTube, and I found this comparison video by Andertons. Danish Pete makes this Dot sound like magic. Basically him playing John Mayer on this guitar made me buy it straight away.

I received the guitar within 5 days Germany-Estonia. Perfect conditions, looked stunning, I still look at it all the time, such an object of beauty, plays really well too.

For 300 Euros this is just absolutely a no-brainer.

BUY IT!!

Plays great, poor electronics
BrianD, 09.06.2013
This guitar comes set up with a low action and the strings are close enough to the neck for easy barre chording as well as fast lead guitar parts. The hardware is very good quality. The guitar come set up practically to my preferences and required very little work. The tuners work very well and the guitar is able to keep a tune for a long time, even when I am changing to different tunings regularly.
There are, however, a few negative aspects of this guitar. The jack was always very loose and at one point is fell inside the hollow body of the guitar. I was unable to remove it and had to send it back to Thomann who returned it with a new jack.
The bridge pickup is very good but the neck pickup sounds pretty bad. Unless you want to spend more money upgrading the guitar than on the guitar itself it may be worth your while buying a different guitar. For a beginner or intermediate player it's great, it looks beautiful and it's one of the best epiphones I've played but a serious player may want to look elsewhere.
