The Epiphone DOT Studio Electric Guitar brings new looks, new functionality and new affordability to Epiphone’s wide array of semi hollowbody electric guitars.
Bold new finish colors give the Studio model its own distinctive flair, and the simplified electronics - just a single tone and single volume control - make for easier sound management. The trademark DOT design, named for the pearl dot fingerboard markers on early models, was invented by Gibson in 1958 to meld traditional features of hollowbody electrics with the performance of a solidbody.
The thinbody, double cutaway style was adopted by such legendary Epiphones of the 1960s as the Riviera and Sheraton. The Epiphone DOT Studio features black hardware, no fingerboard inlay, die cast machine heads and open coil Alnico V humbucking pickups (with a HOT pickup in bridge position).
