The original ES semi-hollow body

The Epiphone Dot is Epiphone's version of the venerable ES-335 “Dot”, has been wowing guitar players all over the world for over four decades. 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. During the same time those guitars were designed and constructed in Kalamazoo, the ES 335, first introduced in 1958, became a favorite of blues, rock, country, and pop acts for its elegant design and wide array of colorful tone combinations. 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.

Comments about Epiphone Dot Electric Guitar:

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.

Comments about Epiphone Dot Electric Guitar:

AMAZING. Though this is just an Epiphone, that's all you need. This sounds great, feels great, plays great, and is an awesome multipurpose guitar. It's a little heavy but that's no big deal at all. I love this guitar.

I like the feel of this guitar. I swapped out the Epiphone pickups for Gibson P-57's and I now get great sound/tone. It is a keeper

      Comments about Epiphone Dot Electric Guitar:

      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.

        I just received the natural finish version of this guitar and love it! I have a friend who has the Gibson version and it's hard to tell the difference, except for the price which is about 1/10 of the Gibson.Highly recommend!

        Comments about Epiphone Dot Electric 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.

          Comments about Epiphone Dot Electric Guitar:

          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.

          You would think it would be heavy. But it is very light. I have two les pauls. A les paul custom And A Zakk Wylde Custom and this is added to my collection. This guitar is best in preformence. NOT BEGINNERS. Its hard for beginners. When you get this gutiar you need to be very very caefull with it.
