Epiphone The Dot VS

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.

An item of beauty

Vee Pee, 26.12.2014
She has ample curves in all the right places, yet this handful of a retro axe can turn it on from classic rock to jazz.
Mine required a decent set-up to make the lady sing, which impressed enough for me to gradually embellish her over time. Consequently I have lavished up-rated electrics & humbuckers upon her, which really moved the sound & tone up several leagues from what was already a fantastic guitar for those inclined to vintage looking axes.
With her current style & form...a definite keeper

It's an Epiphone, what else would you expect.

StuartH, 16.02.2015
This is a beautiful to look at wonderful to play and out of this world to listen to guitar, as good as any Gibson for at least a quarter of the price. The finish is top notch and that Epiphone smell, every time you open the case mmmm!
The neck is superb the tuners a delight and the set up is as near perfect as anything I've ever played. This is a guitar to treasure for the rest of your playing life, then hang on the wall, just to admire it.
