Epiphone The Dot NT CH

Semi-acoustic electric guitarThe guitars of the Gibson ES series have all become classics and indispensable to blues and rock music. But you can still find them featured in jazz, as despite the Les Paul electronics, semi-acoustic guitars always retain a decent amount of "wood" - meaning: an acoustic timbre in the sound.

The Epiphone Dot is based on the ES 335 and features a continuous sustain block under the strings. This makes it much easier to use feedback as well as distorted sounds. Alvin Lee is well known for this, but also jazz rock stars like Larry Carlton and Lee Ritenour. The term "dot" refers to the dot inserts on the neck, as opposed to the block or crown inlays commonly found on Gibsons.

The natural finish comes with chrome hardware lending it a rustic feel. A low cost semi-acoustic for all.

A whole lot of guitar for the money!

KeithR, 25.06.2013
I'm primarily a bass player, but I do play guitar as well, mainly for recording purposes. I wanted a guitar that was first and foremost versatile and reliable. I wanted to be able to cover pretty much all styles from jazz to rock. I had read up on this guitar and it was getting very favourable reviews for its build quality, performance and versatility. Plus it is the next nearest thing to a full-on Gibson ES 335. Thomann's price for this guitar was amazing and when I also received the guitar, the reviews I had read were spot on. The natural finish model is a lovely looking instrument that belies its price tag. I had to do a bit of a setup (but then most guitars do need this) and I found this a doddle. Everything adjusted perfectly to some Gibson factory specs that I found online. Every string intonated spot on. The guitar has a lovely rich acoustic sound, something which is a good sign and this also makes for it being an enjoyable instrument to practice and noodle on without being plugged in. When plugged in it has a solid, thick, yet articulate sound that has some good 'woody' character of the semi-hollow body coming through. I find this guitar to have some very tasty clean sounds and even though it has two humbuckers, with the right EQ settings it can really 'chime'. Going through a crunch setting is great for rhythm guitar. The lead sounds are ok, but to be honest, not as good as my Les Paul, so there are some compromises! For example, extreme distorted lead sounds, break up a little, compared to say an SG, or Les Paul, but then who would use a semi-hollow for that kind of tone? What impresses me the most is the jazz tone I can get from this guitar. Stick it on neck pickup only, roll the volume down to 7, tone down to 5, go through a clean setting with a little compression and a touch of reverb and it sounds fantastic. To my ears it's about 80% of the way there to a 'full hollowbody with flatwounds' sound. It will stop my GAS for a full hollowbody jazz box! However my usual staple of music is very much indie/new wave/funk and it fits the bill nicely for those. Some people criticise the pickups in Epiphones, but I can't find anything amiss in these, but there again I don't have a Gibson ES 335 to compare against! I would recommend this guitar to anybody who wants to venture into semi-acoustic guitars or is looking for a solid versatile guitar that also has retro cool.

excelent value for money from thomann.

I am really a bass player and this is my first electric 6 string
guitar. It looks great sounds good and has nice fret board.
try to buy this in the U K and it will cost £40 -£50 more.
came well packaged and on time don't know how Epiphone
can make this guitar at a budget price
