Epiphone Dot Studio Gloss (Cherry)

No binding, on either back or neck, plus no actual dot inlays, uncovered pick-ups and a simplified control set-up give the Dot Studio Gloss and stripped back aesthetic, keeping performance and practice focussed, so you can concentrate on the music.

Epiphone has long been famous for its own original semi-acoustic models from the '50s Kalamazoo era, including the Riviera and the Sheraton, which are still rolling of the production line today. During the same time those guitars were designed and first being put together, the ES 335 was becoming a firm favourite of blues, rock, country, and pop acts. Its elegant design and wide ranging and colourful tone really put it on the map. The best bit of the Dot Studio Gloss is that none of the changes affect the tone, they're simply cosmetic, meaning the core of the guitar is still totally intact and the only reduction is the cose.
Now, the Epiphone Dot brings the sustain and resonance of this classic semi-acoustic design to players the world over. And for a bounty less than the original Epiphone Dot.
