Epiphone Dot Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Quality construction delivers top-notch playability
  • Distinct semi-hollowbody tone
  • Epiphone's years of Dot experience
Quality construction delivers top-notch playability

Epiphone's Dot sports a full-sized laminated maple body, modeled after Gibson's famous ES-335, with a solid mahogany center block for maximum tone and sustain. At Sweetwater, we know that when you're looking for semi-hollowbody tones, nothing but a Semi-hollowbody will do. The mahogany neck feature's Epiphone's SlimTaper "D" profile shape for a faster, modern feel. And the rosewood fingerboard has a 12" radius, a great radius for both lead and rhythm playing.

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. 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 with the Epiphone Dot's Alnico Classic pickups. Voiced to get the perfect vintage tone, these pickups deliver all the warmth, punch, and bite you want and need from a semi-hollowbody guitar.

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 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 Semi-hollowbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Affordable re-creation of the classic ES-335 Dot guitar from the late '50s
  • Maple top, back, and sides coupled with a solid mahogany tone block create amazing sustain and tone
  • Exceptionally warm and resonant tone, courtesy of the semi-hollow design
  • Alnico Classic and Alnico Classic Plus humbucking pickups can deliver a wide range of vintage-vibed tones
  • SlimTaper "D" neck profile is extremely comfortable and easy to play
The Epiphone Dot semi-hollowbody electric guitar gives you the fat tones and amazing playability you've been looking for!

Don't hesitate to purchase

Everything about this DOT is right and I fall for her each time I play. It compliments my American Standard Stratocaster. Sometimes I don't know which one to play. The Dot has a warmer tone which works for clean blues sounds. The string height and intonation was dead on. I play thru a Ampeg GVT-52 60 watt tube amp. Heaven on earth. Good job Jason Koons @ Sweetwater and Epiphone.By the way, don't listen to the snobs about Epiphone. They make great guitars that have life and great tone. Isn't that what's it all about?
Music background: Semi-professional, Studio recording.

Epiphone Dot

This was the first time to order an instrument from Sweetwater. The guitar came when it was supposed to and was in perfect shape. I unpacked it and played it right out of the box! Setup was good. One string (G) needs a little fine tuning, but overall I am very, very pleased!
Music background: I play and lead worship in church each week.

Best semi-hollow guitar for the price!

Great guitar, just what I was looking for, beautifull finish and solid construction with a great resonance acoustic body that gives you sweets warm tones. In my opinion this is the best website to buy your instruments. Excellent and fast attention, also the fact that you can see real photos of the gear you are buying is amazing.
