Epiphone Dot 335
If you want an ES335, but don't have the $ (or at least don't want to spend it), take a good hard look at this axe. I have one in white. From the factory, Pickups were to low, bridge to high (both my opinion), I "Dialed it in",,,now it plays nice for a $800 axe, but for a $250 axe, PLAYS AWESOME,,, for what it is, with some minor adjustments & new strings(D'Addario .10), very impressive! The finish,,, Flawless for a painted guitar (truly shocking)! The sound, thru a DSL401,,, if you own a DSL,,,, buy one of these,,, you will be blown away! Either clean for Jazz, or a bite that I still can't believe! Maybe I just got lucky, but I'll tell you, on this particular guitar,,, if they are all like this, I can't believe every player doesn't have one, or I got TOTALLY lucky! Currently I have 11 guitars hanging on my wall,, some pretty nice stuff. I'm telling you,,, buy this guitar,,, you will love how it sounds through A Marshall DSL or probably anything with all tubes. Must be something with the thin walled body,, but trust me, if you own a DSL or TSL,, BUY ONE!!! You'll thank me!!! Trust me!!
