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.

Since I was young I have longed for a good hollow body guitar. I bought a used Dot and what I got was not a good guitar, it was a great guitar! I have played 335's and numerous other brands but nothing beats this one for the price. It is almost as though she suggests new stylistic variations to all that I play. Yes I do think this is one of the best guitars available for the price. Try one but beware it will call you back and make you long for that fine full tone.
My Grandson said this was definitely in the top ten Christmas presents ever!
This was actually my first electric guitar, I combo-ed it with an orange practice amp, and from the start I knew I was going to love this instrument to death, it sounds and plays just like a gibson 335 and dont let anyone tell you otherwise; clean, driven, distorted, you name it, this guitar sounds great no matter what, the stock humbuckers are great although I am going to upgrade mine to 57 Classics soon for an even more immersing sound.
I was a bit hesitant to buy such an inexpensive guitar. But, I picked it up and it felt great and I did it - and I am very pleasantly surprised. I have had my cherry finish DOT for quite some time now and have absolutely no complaints at all. The fit and finish is flawless. Set up and playability spot on. No issues at all with staying in tune or any other things that might come out over time. I love this little guitar. I do have some high-end gear and I am not at all ashamed to include this gem in the collection.
These things, and really all of the Epiphone hollowbodies in this price range really don't deserve the rave reviews they're getting. I went in to guitar center to try out some amps actually, and i'd read all the great reviews about these guitars, so i picked one up and immediately I found that I absolutely hate the neck shape. It's about the thickness of an average acoustic guitar, except that it's more of a d profile. What that means in case you don't know is that it's kinda flat making a more or less parallel face with the fretboard. (it's not as extreme as you're probably thinking, but it feels really strange) That shape is actually great, my les paul has that kind of shape, except when paired with the shear thickness of the dot's neck. Next, and probably just as important is that no matter what amp i plugged in to, i could not get the pickups to keep from mudding up unless i stepped off of the bass way too much. the only reason this gets even two stars is because, let's be honest, there's a huge cool factor behind these things, like ridiculously off the charts. Plus they're pretty. Anyway, if you can't afford any other hollow body, then get a job and buy something else.
This guitar is gorgeous. No QC problem here. Workmanship flawless. It's worth the money just as a piece of sculpture! But you can also plug it in and.... It needed a major setup, though. I paid the money to have a pro do it). After that, it's perfect! This is one good-looking, great-sounding guitar.
I played one of these, a Cherry, in Huntsville, Alabama on the 29th. After playing several Les Pauls, including the Epiphone, and not being happy with them - I'm a Strat guy - I wanted to play a 335 but they didn't have one. I played the Epiphone Dot. The finish was absolutely beautiful, the setup was very good and the sound was fabulous. I played it through a Vox AC30C2 and an Orange Micro Terror with a 1-12 speaker cab. You could get any sound from Wes Montgomery to Slash. Really excelled at those B.B. King tones. This thing felt really great in my hands... it just fit naturally. My only criticism is the edge of the fingerboard looked like plastic. It wasn't. It was rosewood with 100 coats of high gloss finish. Other than that, I was totally impressed with this guitar. This is a "must play" if you're shopping.
In price you can't go wrong Gibson is 10x the money buy far. I was thinking that it was too cheap of guitar. I thought wrong I plugged this guitar in and gave the amp a few nob settings and this guitar gave me that pro jazz sound. But it doesn't stop there. The specs of this page say it is good for rock and blues too. They were right. When Gibson made these guitars back in 58/59 they made them to give both hollow and solid tones/sounds. Also it was to eliminate feedback from high vol. of a full hollow jazz guitar. The guitar amazed me in both sound and quality. I will use it for jazz mainly but you can play anything you throw @ it. I play Latin Jazz and the guy in my band really were impressed with the amazing sound it gave me. Thanks to the folks at guitar center they give a god deal and the service was excellent. Ad I say epiphone does it again for me. I own the shareton to and it still kicks as well.
I looked at the guitar and was skeptical the I plugged in this bad boy thinking @ this price I didn't think so. I thought wrong this guitar does what the description of this page says it is good for blues rock jazz or any thing you can throw @ it. When the actual Gibson co. made the real thing in 58/59 they we made to give the taste of both worlds in both solid and hollow tones and to eliminate full hollow body feed back they did good for the versatile player. I will use it for jazz mostly in my latin jazz band. IT plays and sounds great for the price I was expecting junk flaws etc. I expected the actual Gibson price. But when I saw the the price tag I said oh yeah I am sold so I bought it. Plus the matching case is a treat too. The guitar cradles nicely in it with room to spare for extra strings and picks and strap and if it fits your chord.I say it is definitely well worth the price and the guitar to get.
I just picked up a used Epi dot and I have to say I am blown away buy this guitar. I have Gretsch, Fender & Gibson guitars and this holds it own with all of them. I'm going from blues to jazz to 70's/80's rock and even some Texas swing. It took a little tweeking, some new strings and it's there. The nice thing is I don't need to worry if in the future I want to change pickups or add a trem I won't be messing up an expensive guitar. But for now I'm diggin it just the way it is.
