Epiphone The Dot CH
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 such as 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.
