Thats right I said GIBSON I had a nice '335 back when I was a kid and sold it for a more rockin' guitar, sure would like to have that 335 back. But I gotta tell ya,I have a LP std. and a 1953 L4C(a ES-175 body with no PU's)And this little Dot plays just exactly like them.Never thought I would sing the praises of a Korean guitar, but I bought this Dot used at GC here in Fort Wayne. Tried a few other guitars, and was suprised to hear this beauty with rusty gross strings, sound more resonant with better harmonic accents than anything (although the alleycat with p-90's was close)I played in the price range. The pickups are the ones they put on the Epi LP-neck (can't play the Epi LP's necks feel like a bat) She's just broke in and in awesome condition but not new. Not a lick(pun) of trouble with it, don't think I've even adjusted the action(did intonate her though) If anything I might slap my old LP PAF on it just to see if it's any different. If you get a chance, play one of these, and don't let some punk tell you it doesn't look rockin enough.From Cream to Ten Years After to Frank Zappa this is a classic tone machine. The sustain block does make it heavier than a ES335 but with f-holes it can sustain forever, If you can't rock this Guitar, buy yourself a ridiculous hockey-stick black thing that you can't give away in 5 years when you grow out of it.Been at this guitar thing for 30 years now, so either I'm an old fart who likes old country lookin' guitars, or I speak the truth. But if want to play a great guitar buy one of these, if you want to play hockey buy a hockey stick.

This was my first guitar handed down from my dad. Great beginner guitar, really great actually. It's not too smooth to play and you really have to press as close to the frets as possible to get a clean sound which forces you to do so otherwise it sounds bad. The neck and the rosewood fretboard aren't too smooth, but overall, the guitar has a pretty good sound. I started with this on a $40 practice amp and I was quite happy. Well priced. I'm not a fan of hollow guitars, but it does have a nice jazz sound. This guitar will force you to develop good habits so great for starting. However, if you think you will progress very fast, after a while you will outgrow it and will be blown away by any top guitar like the american standard or les paul which makes you appreciate even more.

    Comments about Epiphone Dot Electric Guitar:

    My first guitar and I have no regrets. Was looking for an Epiphone Les Paul when my friend recommend I try this one out and I have never been happier. It looks nice, feels great, and sounds amazing with or without an amp, and it's used so I can't even imagine how great it was when it was new even though it seemed new when I had bought it. The feel of the guitar is my favorite thing about it, really making me want to practice more and more because it's a joy to play. Only problem I've had with it so far is that after 30 minutes of playing my shoulders start to get sore. I don't know if this is due to it being heavy or me still getting use to the weight of an electric rather than acoustic. All in all, great for practicing, jamming, and recording. Haven't had the chance to play at a large event so I can't comment on that though I'm sure it would do great. Great first guitar and it only gets better after the purchase.

      Comments about Epiphone Dot Electric Guitar:

      This Dot is set up great. NO buzz. String height, intonation fine. Cosmetics a just fine. Get almost any tone out of it. Played through a tube amp get the jazz, blues thing fine. For me, I am fortunate to own it. It exceeds my abilities, and will keep growing into it. Never get rid of it! I have 5 other guitars. American Strat, Mex Tele, and Martin, Taylor, and Epi Acoustics. I play my Epi 200 CE jumbo acoustic more than any of the others, and this Dot may become my go-to electric for playing and practicing. Got the case also. Nice case. Better than the Epi cases a few years back. Thanks Musician's Friend!

        Comments about Epiphone Dot Electric Guitar:

        I have a dozen or so of fine guitars several American Stratocasters, teles, custom built others. Even have the first eletric guitar I ever bought and I am 58 years old. I would put this epiphone dot out to gig with right along with any of those and it is the least expensive one I own. I could buy any new gibby 335 at anytime but I just don't see the 8-10 times value difference. I may change out the electronics but may not. Just had surgery on my strumming sholder and haven't played but 45 minutes or so yet. Highly recommend this epiphone dot. >< >

        Comments about Epiphone Dot Electric Guitar:

        I purchased the Dot after getting the bug for a semi-hollow. The dream had always been to save up for a 335, but how long would that take with the prices always rising? So, I started looking into more budget-friendly models and almost pulled the trigger on a Sheraton before I came across this guitar. It took a little time and money for upgrades, but I've spent well under half of what I would have for a guitar that sounds like a 335.

        Overall, the guitar is of good quality. This is the fourth guitar in my collection, one of which being a Korea Les Paul, and they've all been customized with new pups, etc. When buying this guitar, I knew I planned to do the same and would have my Luthier go over it with a thorough set-up and upgrade the nut. After the nut upgrade the quality increased tremendously. A few of the frets on the higher register needed to be dressed, but this is a guitar made in China for under $450. Also, there are a very few cosmetic flaws in the finish around the f-holes, but nobody would ever see that. For under $450, this guitar is a good value and will make you happy. But put a little more money in and you'll be thrilled... on to the good stuff...

        The pickups were pretty good, and I especially liked the warm, mellow tone I could get from the neck, but they just didn't have that "wow-factor". The Les Paul I mentioned has a set of unbelievable PAFs I got an amazing deal on, and THAT is the tone I wanted in this guitar. After a lot of research, I swapped the pups with Seymour duncan antiquity humbuckers. The difference is astounding. This Dot's range with these pups goes from sweet and mellow to beastly in the neck and snarling at the bridge. I don't play metal, and wouldn't with this guitar, but it can easily handle hard rock. It really shines in blues, rock and heavy funk (what I commonly play). This is my main guitar for gigs, and paired with the SDs, the only guitar I need. It plays like a guitar that cost $500, but sounds like a $2k guitar.

        Comments about Epiphone Dot Electric Guitar:

        This is a really good guitar, but probably not great. But it is a great value and I am glad to have it. The workmanship is really high and everything is very solid and unblemished. No rattling switches or wobbling knobs. Fretwork is well done. And it's just really gorgeous. It's design allows for a lot of right hand freedom without hitting knobs and switches with a very comfortable resting area for the right hand. However . . . Fretboard material quality is a little lacking on mine. The pickups sound duller than expected and the nut is cheap plastic. I don't find the neck to be all that comfortable; it feels a bit fat and the neck is painted and coated with gloss polyurethane which makes it hard to slide my hand. I seem to break the high E string over and over. All of that aside, I'm glad I bought it and I would do it again, especially for around $425. A little amazing it can retail for this amount. The basic instrument is a great foundation for upgrading components to make it sound like a guitar that costs 3X what it does.

          Comments about Epiphone Dot Electric Guitar:

          First thing you must accept is that this guitar is NOT a Gibson, but for the price point, it's a beauty. I always admired the cherry E335 since junior high school. I also own a Fender strat that I upgraded with Eric Clapton lickups, but due to a Father's Day gift certificate, I decided to buy the Epiphone guitar. After all, life is short. I was looking at the E339, but when I walked into GC, the E335 was on sale, so Itried it out and decided to pull the trigger. The store salesman said if I had any issues within the next 30 days, bring it in and they'll have their tech check it out. The next day, I felt I should make sure it was set up properly, so I brought it back. The tech checked it out and found a slight valley on the treble side of the fret board, so they ordered me a new one. A few days later the new came in and they checked it out and set it up. It had no imperfections. The staff at the Commack GC were great!

          This guitar has a decent build quality and one of the better Epiphones I've played. I would have to say however that the fret buzz is quite noticeable and that the finish on the neck is very sticky when playing for long amounts of time. I've gigged with this guitar and would again, but not entirely impressed by the thicker '60's profile' neck

            I had 3 of these and had to send everyone back! The 1st one had bad fret buzz, the 2nd had fret buzz, a backbow in the neck, and a non-working truss rod, and the 3rd had fret buzz. I have been playing guitar for 52 years, so I know a little about setting them up, and even after doing that, they were unacceptable. MF took them all back and refunded my money, but what a pain in the ***! I won't buy another!

                I am a rank beginner (emphasis on rank), so take this for what it's worth. I originally bought a no name piece of junk guitar that was difficult to get a decent sound out of, had terrible intonation, and was very difficult to play. The plan was to upgrade in a year or two. I do play ukulele and some piano, so I knew that an instrument that bad would slow my progression. Then I saw a used dot at a great price. I already knew that I wanted one, so I bought it. The instrument is beautiful, it had fantastic action, feels great in my hands and even I can make good sounds with this. I love it so much I am practicing my butt off just to be worthy of it. In short, worth every penny.

                Comments about Epiphone Dot Electric Guitar:

                Great guitar, especialy if you use a high end tube amp. The solid block of wood (factory installed) under the pickups greatly reduces feedback and adds some warmth, but does make the guitar heavier than a normal arch top. Had trouble staying in tune and some buzzing issues; solved these problems with a custom made nut carved from bone and a complete set-up done by a pro for 11-48 gauge strings. Be sure to swap out the cheap plastic (factory) nut as it is very grabby. Very nice neck and fretbroad;easy to play. Sweet to crunching tones and everything in between. Big fat warm tone when plugged into my Fender Twin. Also sounds great plugged directly into a sound (mixing) board. I love playing this guitar.....but only after swapping out the nut and having a technician go over it with a fine tooth comb. Well worth it to spend some money getting this baby tweaked up. You won't be dissapointed.
