Product Description

The Epiphone Limited Edition Dot Studio Electric Guitar, A New Twist on the Rock and Roll Machine The Epiphone Dot, Epiphone's version of the venerable ES 335 ‘Dot’, has been wowing guitar players all over the world for a decade. Vintage models, with vintage problems, can't compete with the 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 Limited Edition Dot Studio Features:

  • Mahogany neck and body retaining much of the style of the 1958 classic
  • 2 Alnico Classic pickups with a hotter bridge pickup, and simplified tone circuitry
  • Produces a wide range of tone that will adapt to any musical style
  • Fitted with chrome hardware to round out the classic vintage style tuno-o-matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece
  • Has all the tone and functionality of the ‘Dot’ but with a fabulous Cherry or Sunburst finish

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 being 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 Limited Edition Dot Studio, named in reference to its worn finish and plain fingerboard, opens up the availability of the sustain and resonance of the 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.

Semi-hollow for less money!
General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
For a semi-hollow body guitar, you won't find a better deal! The difference between this and the Dot is the controls - the Dot has separate tone and volume for each pickup, the Dot Studio has one set for both pickups.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Like all current Epiphones you may need to go through a few examples to find the best one. The ouput jack worked loose on mine and eventually a wire ame loose, took quite a bit of work to fish it out and resolder it.
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Decent neck action. Controls coudl probably be a little tighter, very easy to hit a control with vigorous strumming.
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
Good semi-hollow tone, can get a good body feedback going. Needed to use heavier strings with a wound G string on mine for better intonation, so tone was not as bright as I would like without adjusting the amp accordingly, but good Casino-like sound.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
I got the now-discontinued faded brown vintage finish, took some getting used to compared to usual glossy ones, but unique now!
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
Picked mine up used for a good price, Epi hardshell cases are available to fit perfectly.
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
Very good, once I changed to heavier strings to get better intonation.
