The Epiphone Dot Studio sports a laminated mahogany body and top, with a mahogany neck topped with a rosewood fretboard. It's a classic recipe for enhanced sustain, and rich bass note response. While the original ES-335s were made from laminated maple, Epiphone's choice of mahogany captures the warmth and depth that made these guitars so popular while keeping the Dot Studio at an affordable price.Distinct semi-hollowbody tone
If you've ever listened to any rock or blues from the '60s, you've heard the classic tone you'll find in the Dot Studio. The phrase "bell-like" is most appropriate here, with notes that spring to life and then gently decay into a long sustain - perfect for leads and solos. While the tone can get bright and aggressive if you need it to, it's the warm and smooth overdriven tones that made its predecessor, the ES-335, such a popular guitar for blues and jazz styles. You'll get the same vintage vibe from the Epiphone Dot Studio.Epiphone's years of Dot experience
Epiphone was already experienced in making semi-hollowbody electric guitars by the time the ES-335 became a hit in 1958-59. The Epiphone Riviera and Sheraton were two popular models at the time, and '50s originals still sell for a pretty penny. So while the Epiphone Dot Studio is incredibly affordable, it's still built with Epiphone's 50+ years of experience in creating semi-hollowbody guitars with incredible tone and amazing value.Epiphone Dot Studio Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar Features:
