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.

Great ax to add it the arsenal


I'm a life long hobbyist and have amassed a few guitars over the years. Had a Gibson 335 with serious quality issues so I got rid of it. This dot replaced it and I have to regrets. Plays good looks great and sounds rich. At this price point it's unbeatable. If I had a friend I would recommend it most definitely.

Great copy of the Gibson 335. Semi-hollow body really adds resonance to your tone. Get one!



Exceeds Expectations


The shipment of the guitar to my home was fast and with no problems and with efficient double boxing protection. The price compared to a way overpriced Gibson ES-335 is amazing. I had an older 64 Epiphone that was similar looking and had a tremolo bar. Although I loved it for it's jazz sounding round toned Gibson HB pickups, I actually like the bite and a bit of a growl I get from the P90 pickups. A warmer sound. But with a little backoff of the volume pots, I can get a pretty round tone out of the new one too. It feels sizably heavier than my old Epiphone.

After a long hiatus, I got back into playing again, in 1996. I wanted to try something different, and the Dot was what I picked up. Strapping it on, it felt like a nice fit-comfortable, 'easy to get along with'. I played it a bit, and the neck and fingerboard felt very 'right'; so I bought it. If I had any significant issues, I wouldn't have kept it. As it is, it consistently keeps in tune, as well as intonation. I initially had some problems with buzzing around the 11th thru 14th fret. This falls under the realm of expected adjustments. What I have is natural, pretty 'plain Jane', but it sounds like a million dollars. I have had it for about twenty years now, and the selector switch is starting to go-an easy fix. I also am toying with installing a varitone selector. This guitar has always gone on gigs-no matter what else I brought. These guitars are not toys, and I do not recommend putting it into the hands of an inexperienced child. If treated right, Epiphone guitars-and I have about twenty-will treat you right as well; and this axe is definitely no exception!

cleve oh


great 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.

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.

Nice upgradeable entry level


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

Amazing 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.




Excellent 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!
