The Epiphone Dot Cherry is a rich sounding, vintage style semi-hollow electric guitar that looks seriously classy and plays like a dream. The semi-hollow laminated maple body, set mahogany neck and dot-inlayed rosewood fretboard provide natural tonewood resonance and stability, to underpin the warmth and thickness of the dual Alnico-powered humbuckers. The tone is enhanced by the natural acoustic body resonance that adds a generous depth to create a rich timbre. The Epiphone Dot is ideal for players who want to capture some classic vintage looks and tone, in an affordable hollow-body design that has kept finding its way back into spotlight, finding its place in contemporary music decade after decade.
The humbuckers feature Alnico magnets, which get a strong signal and are a major part of the vintage humbucker sound that makes Epiphone guitars so popular. The electronics include a three-way switch and oversized tone pots, and volume pots that preserve the highs as you roll down the volume. The adjustable bridge, stopbar tailpiece and vintage tuning machines provide excellent intonation and tuning stability. The medium frets, low action and slightly chunky neck offer a really comfortable and expressive playing experience. All things considered, the Epiphone Dot ES335 really does justice to the original Gibson ES-335, the guitar that it is based on.
Authentic appointments from the original ES 335 include a Gibson engraved truss rod cover, orange sticker visible through the upper f-hole and bonnet style knobs. This added authenticity helps to remind players and audiences of the awesome history, and legacy that has been left by this iconic electric guitar model.
Whether you’re new to the instrument, or have many years playing experience under your fingers, the Epiphone Dot 335 electric guitar will delight players of all abilities. The supple feel of the neck is the perfect playing partner to the lightweight body design, whilst the tonewood combination and expertly selected pickups deliver a sumptuous tones palette to play with.
