I have a variety of guitars and I always wanted a good cross section of tones and sounds when playing.
I got this in the mail and I was suprised by the finish, the attention to detail, the playability out of the case. The pick-ups are perfect for what I play, classic rock. I have Strats for the Metal music and acoustics for ballad type of songs. this one covers all generes of music.
I must be the lucky one because what I have should be a Gibson, but why pay for the name when you can have the real thing for a whole lot less.
This is the Crown Jewel of Epiphone. Why do you think John Lennon played one?

Right off the bat I found myself not enjoying it that much for the following reasons:1. The volume and tone knobs wobble when they turn.2. The guitar will not stay in tune.3. The g-string will not intonate correctly.4. The finish was not flawless.5. The plug-in jack would refuse to tighten.6. The nut for the pick-guard fell off for no apparent reason.Anyways my first modification was to have the horrid cheap black plastic nut removed and had a decent bone nut put on. That seemed to cure most of the tuning problems however that did not cure the biggest problem of all. The g-string will simply not intonate correctly. No matter where I placed the string saddle and how I tuned it. It was either in tune on the first few frets and out of tune below the 5th fret or it was in tune between the 12th and 5th frets and flat on the first three frets and played in open.I've emailed Epiphone about this and they say take it to a dealer but I'm fed up with messing with it. This guitar had a label on it saying it had been set-up and inspected in the USA. I disagree, it was simply given the visual once over and put back in its case.I've decided to trade it in for a Rickenbacker as I'm about done with inferior quality guitars. For me a guitar simply must stay in tune and have excellent intonation, that is my pre-requisite. The Epiphone does not perform these simple functions, no matter how cheap it was or how pretty it is.It even sounds pretty good but how can I play live with a guitar that sounds out of tune?I think my advice would be to ensure that you thoroughly check and play your Epiphone's intonation before purchasing it. There just seems to be too much tolerance from one guitar to the next, alternately you could buy a real Gibson.On the positive side, the guitar plays well in clean settings and in highly distorted settings, with excellent sustain and good playability. The kind of music I play is brit-pop/mod/indie, so it's well suited for those styles of music. Really the sound isn't too far away from a Gibson Les Paul, except that it appears to have even more sustain than a Les Paul.The guitar sounds best played through my Fender Hotrod Deville 410 60 watt tube amp. And as said before handles a lot of distortion easily. With a creamy full Gibson tone all the way.My last Epiphone before this guitar was an Epiphone Sheraton which was definitely a notch above the Dot with a bound body, neck and a faster fret-board. I also own a Vox Mark III and a Rickenbacker 360/12 both of those guitars are flawless works of art. With no intonation troubles.I guess my only piece of advice is, if you must buy one of these please play it first or be prepared for a long battle trying to lick it into shape. If you can possibly save the money and buy a Gibson or one of the more expensive Epiphones such as the Sheraton, Casino or Riviera you'll be a lot happier.RecommendedNo

A good deal on any level

By One Old Guy

from Tulsa, OK

See all my reviews

Comments about Epiphone Dot Electric Guitar:

I absolutely believe this is THE very best value for the money you can buy. If you're here considering buying this guitar you obviously already know about the superior tone of the 335-style guitars so there's no need to go into that. Over 300 reviews and a solid 4.5 rating. That many people can't be wrong & you wont' go wrong buying this guitar. I'm partial to Natural but like Cherry, too.
Standard Two humbucker 4-knob setup.
Don't let anyone kid you. The quality on this guitar is great. Yeah, the 'E' will fall off the pickguard in a few days. Big deal. The workmanship on this guitar is first-rate all the way and since we're talking about a semi-hollow here, a lot of work goes into building it compared to a solid body guitar. I own three of these and I'm very impressed with the quality & workmanship. Like any other guitar, especially one that has traveled half-way around the world, investing in a professional setup will be money well-spent. In this regard it is no different than any other guitar, especially Asian-made ones.
This guitar is perfectly gig-ready with no modifications whatsoever. However, should one decide to upgrade this can easily be done with remarkable results. I won't say you can make it into a Gibson 335 but I'm saying you can get about 85% there for about 25% of the $$.

AMAZINGLY AMAZING!!!!!!!!!

Comments about Epiphone Dot Electric Guitar:

Buy it. You will be more than satisfied. The versatility is incredible, and the picture doesnt do it justice. I have the cherry one, and the color is really like a dark red, not like the pinkish red on the picture. If you want a semihollow body guitar and cant afford a gibson, buy this guitar!
I bought the Cherry one, and it is one of the best guitars i have ever played under $1000. The stock humbuckers sound good, and the guitar can be rather loud acoustically too!
This guitar is durable and definitely well built. I have never had any issues with it except for having to adjust the bridge and the intonation, which was easy due to the tune-o-matic bridge, which also allows for quick and easy string changing as well.
This guitar is a gibson with an epiphone headstock. If i had to price it i would not sell it for under $1000 bucks. It is that good!

Comments about Epiphone Dot Electric Guitar:

This guitar has the bite u would expect from Epiphone. It does what it says for blues, rock, and mainly Jazz. Trust a Guy who been playing since the 3rd grade and going on 44 yrs of age this month. 3/27/69 is the big day. I know to me It feels it is the same as his Gibson expensive brother. I like the sound of this one 2 me better the stock pick ups r to me almost the same as the ones on his big bro. If a Jazz and blues bite is what u r after than this is a guitar to get that wont skies the limit your wallet, pocket or check book. The warm Jazz tone is Jazzy the blues tone is B.B. kingish some what. those sounds r depending u set your amp and effect petals. Over all I like it's sound a versatility. you Jazz and blues and rock lovers when you try before u buy think about that this is good 4 the money if you r not looking to spend 3 or 4 g's on the big bro. If you can afford it then buy all means I wash my hands of the whole point of getting this guitar. But if your on a budget like me then like I said is the one to get. good luck with your search I found mine.

Epiphone Dot

By dylan l

from Ontario

Comments about Epiphone Dot Electric Guitar:

I own several medium to high en guitars and my Dot is one of my favorites. With a few upgrades I can say there is not much of a differance between it and my Gibson 335. I put in a bone nut, 57 classic and 57 classic plus pu's, and orange capaciters. The neck is great, it stays in tune thanks to the grovers, and the vintageburst looks really nice. Can't go wrong with the Dot, especially if you plan to upgrade it!
7 because the stock parts are not the best

2nd Review

By Van Pelt

from Saint Paul MN

See all my reviews

Comments about Epiphone Dot Electric Guitar:

This is my 2nd review of the Epiphone DOT. Mine is the natural color. A few minor flaws in the finish, but its a beautiful guitar.The action was high and the intonations were way off when I first received the guitar, but that is to be expected. I made some adjustments and after that it played beautifully!The one thing that I have noticed, however, is that it has had a little trouble staying in tune. After some research, I've come to find that the nut is a completely cheap piece of plastic crap (as I originally thought) and the strings do NOT properly glide over it. The only cure is to either load it up with graphite shavings or to replace it with a higher quality nut.The tuning problems are the only issues that I've had and after I threw in the graphite shavings, I've not had a problem with tuning at all since!The guitar is solid, sounds great and plays wonderfully. It is absolutely gorgeous, too! I LOVE IT! It has become my main axe. Do yourself a favor and check it out!

Epiphone Dot not so hot, but some good mixed with the bad.

By Rickw1983

from Long Island NY

See all my reviews

Comments about Epiphone Dot Electric Guitar:

Rated it at 7 only because of the nice tones and over all nice looks but the quality of workmanship is poor.
Got my Epi Dot today and the first thing I noticed was the "E" emblem on the pickguard was coming loose. I touched it and it fell off on to the floor. It was bent and was glued on with very little glue. Shoddy work to say the least. Seems like quick, get it out the door, assembly line quality. My hopes of this being a decent guitar were fading fast. The first thing I checked was the action. The string height was very high, not acceeptable in my book at all. I made some adjustments and got it a little better but cannot lower it to much or I get buzzing and fretting out. Even the paint work on the inside of the F holes looked like a five year old did it. OK that's the bad and now for the good. I gave the rating of 7 only because I like the tones you can get and for the over all looks. Otherwise I would have rated it at about 5. I am conflicted on this guitar because even though I felt let down by some of the poor workmanship, I was impressed with the tones and sound and the over all looks are pretty good. It's a good looking guitar. After playing it a while I started to get somewhat used to the playability and I do like the way it sounds. Will I keep it? Not sure yet. I don't have the money for a real ES335 so this is probably the next best thing my budget will allow.
Workmanship is poor. Sound and tones are very good.
Not worth the money.

Comments about Epiphone Dot Electric Guitar:

I was about to take the plunge on a Gibson ES-335 when I ran across a used Epiphone Dot in a retail music store. As with all Asian made instruments, you need to play it and make sure it's okay, but mine is perfect.

A word of caution: Make SURE you put the right strings on it. Go with the factory recommended specs for strings, because arbitrarily changing them can upset the intonation and make it impossible to play in tune all the way up and down the scale. I made this mistake with an SG and a guitar professional at the music store straightened me out on it. When I installed the proper strings and set the adjust-0-matic bridge for proper intonation, it finally sounded good. Another reviewer complained about inability to set the intonation on the "G" string, and this may be his problem.

Comments about Epiphone Dot Electric Guitar:

I got this guitar to take with my to boarding school. So far, it has not let me down. Yes, the stupid E logo on the pick guard fell off pretty soon after the purchase, but I was happy about that - as I said, it looked stupid. The dot handles all styles very well from what I've used it for. The rear pickup handles overdrive quite nicely and is good for bands like Green Day, The Stones, etc. If you turn OD off and switch to both p-ups, it gives a great acoustic tone. The neck pickup could be better, though. I've played it at numerous open mic nights, however, and it hasn't let me down yet. Only two things really bother me 1. I can't sling this as low as I can my LP, but that's really a personal thing and 2. There's no volume knob for just the rear pickup. Whatever.All in all, a great deal for the money. Would definitely recommend to my friends.

    By JNF91

    from Kansas

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Epiphone Dot Electric Guitar:

    Great value. If you can handle a fret dressing, and maybe a pickup swap, you can have an awesome, no excuses guitar. There is a reason this style has been in production since 1958-it just seems to work.
    I'm impressed. OK-the pickups aren't great. But what a solid, good feeling guitar. The Rotomatics are a nice touch, too. The neck profile is a comfy D shape.
    I leveled and dressed the fret immediately. Lots of buzzing before. The finish looks great, and the general feeling is one of quality. The electronics are iffy, but it'll be fun to mod.
    Here is where this thing shines. I bought it on sale, and I'm mystified how I bought a guitar this nice for what I paid. I've got guitars from all over the price spectrum, but this holds it's own. I would play this out with no hesitation.

    Epiphone Dot Cherry

    By Joshua McFarlin

    from Southern Ohio

    Comments about Epiphone Dot Electric Guitar:

    Overall, it's a great value for the money. If you wan't a great looking,playing semi-hollow, this should be it. I would recommend lowering the action slightly and putting some DR Pure Blues on it. And the optional hard case is sweet!!
    Excellent guitar. I like the shape and feel of the neck. Only gripe I have is that the adjustmnet screws to set the intonation are hard to get to. They should face the tail piece and not the rear pickup.
    Nice finish. Frets could stand to be polished a little. But hey, for less than 400 bucks, you can't ask for a whole lot more. It will sustain very well! I run it thru a Jimi Hendrix fuzz/wah and a TS 808 into a Marshall Haze 40. Love the tones from the pickups. Work great for that classic blues/ rock tone.

          You just can't beat the value here. This is a solid guitar for the money. When I got mine I had to lower the action, but I do that on far pricier guitars out of the box as well. The intonation was way off, but I was able to get it in line. The tone of the instrument is good and the pickups are pretty solid. The feel is solid and it's just down right fun to play. Pick one up and I gurantee you won't be dissapointed.

          This is the best investment i have ever made. The semi-hoolow body shape works great for clean tones. The pickups dont give off the best crunch. I installed Seymour Duncan HB-102 pickups. After that, i can use this guitar from anything. In past concerts, I've used this guitar to play music from bands like, Metallica, Seether, Staind, ACDC, all the way to Green Day with this guitar on my Marshall MG 100 hfx half stack. All around, best guitar for anyone, beginner or professional.

          If you've always wanted a Gibson 335 but, don't have the dinero this baby's for you. I used to have a Gibson 335 in my younger days but, through the years of life and various other things that come along the journey I sold it. I really didn't think I'd ever own one again until I got my hands on one of these! I now own an instrument that gives me all that I ever had in my older Gibson 335 and, for a lot less money. The looks,feel,sound and, workmanship of this guitar is superb! I have the cherry red colcor and it is breath taking. The only thing that this guitar does not have that really seperates it from the Gibson is neck binding and, the pearl colored tulip tuners. Other than that nothing. I am very pleased with this guitar and, also happy that I could have another 335 but, for a lot less money.
          Epiphone does this guitar well, import or not it is made well.
          For the money spent it;s a super guitar. If you really want a Gibson start saving your money but, I would suggest you really check Epi out it could change your mind.

          I have owned at least 7 different 335 style guitars, and the epiphone is the closest thing to a Gibson as you are going to get unless you buy a Gibson ES 335. My epi 335 is a blonde or natural finsih and i really like it, it does not show fingerprints etc. The neck was a little fatter than I remebered, more like a 58" neck, not slim like a 60's neck but I still like it. The pickups have a great tone and are very expressive, if you wanted I suppose you could upgrade people do that in guitars that cost 3 times the price of this guitar. I have been a Strat player for over 20 years and recently have been called to do more different kinds of music. Blues, Rock and Gospel the epi DOT gets the TONE I need for all those styles. I am very Happy and would recommend it to any level of guitar player. This is one of the most versatile guitars ever made and a joy to play!

          overall this is a nice guitar. for the price.
          this guitar has everything. humbuckers that dont suck,a nice pickguard, beautiful tuners, good bridge. the finish is amazing on the cherrry red.
          its an epiphone so its not as good as the gibson es models but its still amazing.
          my only complaints are the action and how it stays in tune.
          WONDERFUL GUITAR

          Comments about Epiphone Dot Electric Guitar:

          DID NOT WANT TO SPEND THE EXTRA MONEY TO GET THE GIBSON 335(WAY OVERPRICED TODAY I FEEL) SO I DECIDED ON THE EPIPHONE DOT. I SEE AND HEAR THE DIFFERENCE IN TONE AND PICK UPS. HOWEVER I AM PLEASED WITH THIS GUITAR AT THE PRICE I PAID. ONLY PROBLEM WAS LACK OF PROPER SET UP AND ONCE I HAD THAT DONE IT PLAYED JUST FINE. PICK UPS I WILL CHANGE IN FUTURE AND I WILL THEN SEE IF I MADE THE CORRECT CHOICE OR SHOULD I HAVE INVESTED IN THE GIBSON WHICH AGAIN FOR ME ALREADY HAVING TWO GIBSON LES PAULS I FOUND THE GIBSON VERSION TOO OVERPRICED AS IN TODAY'S NAME BRAND GUITARS THAT ARE AVAILABLE. I SEE NO VALUE IN OVERPAYING FOR SOMETHING THAT UNLESS YOU ARE A PRO GIVES NO VALUE BACK JUST FOR THE SAKE OF SAYING I HAVE THIS OR THAT. I RECORDED WITH THIS GUITAR AND IT SOUNDED FINE , NO NOISE HEARD ON ITS TRACK, IN FACT NO ONE COULD TELL I USED AN INEXPENSIVE GUITAR ON THE TRACKS, RECORDING IT STOOD UP AGAINST MY LES PAUL'S, ALTHOUGH YES I HEARD THE DIFFERENCE. IN THE SCHEME OF THINGS NO ONE ELSE HEARD IT AND IT PLAYED FINE FOR ME. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS GUITAR JUST BECAUSE OF THE PRICE AND WHAT YOU GET, A GUITAR THAT PLAYS WELL AND GETS YOU INTO THE HOLLOW BODY ELECTRICS AT A FAIR PRICE. IT ALSO LOOKS FANTASTIC.

          Comments about Epiphone Dot Electric Guitar:

          The Epiphone Dot is about as close to it's more expensive cousin the Gibson ES335 as you can get. When I first got the guitar it took a little breakin time for the neck to accept the intonation but once that happened this has been one rock'n guitar. The ability to be bluesy, clean or hard rock power is a special quality and it's all here in the Dot. It has a fast neck and is actually is a comfortable guitar to hang on your shoulder.I wouldn't trade it for anything else and I own 18 guitars.
