Alnico Classic PRO Humbuckers:
The Limited Edition Dot Deluxe features Alnico Classic PRO humbuckers made with Alnico-V magnets, which produce a slightly higher output especially in the mid and highs. Each pickup has it own Volume and Tone control with Top Hat Amber knobs with full-size 500K O potentiometers matched with Epiphone’s rugged, all-metal, 3-way toggle pickup selector switch for long-lasting performance.
When winding humbuckers, Epiphone utilizes a double vacuum waxing process that ensures quiet operation free from microphonic hum. The pickup is first placed in the specialized wax vacuuming system before the cover is placed on the unit to ensure that the wax fully penetrates to the very center of the pickup and solidifies all parts. After the cover is placed on, it is again given a second vacuum wax bath until the unit is completely saturated with wax. Epiphone also uses high quality ABS plastic bobbins, 1010 Cold Rolled Steel pole shoes and pole screws, the finest magnet wire available.
Rock Solid Hardware:
The Limited Edition Dot Deluxe comes with Grover Rotomatic machine heads with an 18:1 turning ratio and a LockTone Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar combo for incredible sustain and solid intonation. A deluxe hard gigbag is available through Authorized Epiphone Dealers.
