Brilliant guitar, comfy to play and sounds great across a broad range, jazzy, bluesy, folk and rock.
A nice cheaper end Gibson. Finish and overall look is all one could ask for, however just a few little niggling finish issues on the "F" holes. Although over all a good buy at a super price delivered on time and most of all sounds and plays great.
I wanted an ES335. Couldn’t decide between the Gibson and the Epiphone. The Gibson is 8x more expensive - or more. I read a few online reviews of the Epiphone Dot and thought I’d take a punt. It does not disappoint. It feels, sounds, and plays like guitars costing 3x as much. The Gibson might have better woods in it. It might have more expensive parts. But the Epiphone Dot is the real deal, doesn’t cost as much as a car, and will sound good in the pubs and clubs without the stress of carrying a £3000 instrument on your back. Most of the time I complain about why good instruments are so expensive. This time, I don’t get why this guitar is so inexpensive.
