The Epiphone Dot was introduced over ten years ago, and since then, Epiphone’s version of the venerable Gibson ES-335 “Dot” has been wowing guitar players all over the world. Though Epiphone was long famous for its own original semi-hollowbody models from the 1960’s Kalamazoo, Michigan era including the Riviera and Sheraton, the simple classic ES-335 style was missing, especially among the more affordable models. The introduction of the Epiphone Dot – called that in reference to it’s simple “dot” fingerboard inlays – opened up the availability of the sustain and resonance of the semi-hollow design for a bounty less than most solid body guitars.
Semi-hollow Design, Solid Craftsmanship:
The Epiphone Dot is constructed of premium laminated Maple including a Mahogany center block and a hand-fitted, glued-in Mahogany neck. Other details include a Rosewood fingerboard with traditional “Dot” inlay, quality electronic parts including full-size, 1” 500K Ohm potentiometers, Epiphone’s all-metal pickup selector switch and heavy-duty output jack. Its fabulous semi-hollowbody sound is voiced by a pair of real Alnico Classic™ Humbucker pickups. It is available in classic Cherry, Ebony, Natural and Vintage Sunburst finishes and comes with Chrome hardware including premium 16:1 ratio Grover® machine heads for superior tuning stability and accuracy. Also included as standard equipment on the Epiphone Dot is Epiphone’s exclusive LockTone™ locking Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece which yields even more sustain.
