Big 335 vibe for a lot less bread.

The Epiphone Dot Studio Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar builds on Epiphone's great tradition of archtops such as the legendary Sheraton and Emperor. Simplified controls and minimalist styling provide great functionality and elegant visual appeal while powerful Vintage Alnico V Plus pickups give it plenty of bite.

Drawing on the classic 335 vibe, with mahogany top, back, sides, and set neck, the Dot Studio guitar dishes out hot blues and rock when overdriven or thick jazz tones clean. The scale length is 24-3/4", with a nut width of 1-17/25". The LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece provide more sustain and string changing easier.

Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.

Features

  • Laminated mahogany top, back, and sides

  • Semi-hollow construction
  • Vintage Alnico V plus pickups
  • Rosewood fretboard

By Michael Gallagher

from Undisclosed

Comments about Epiphone Dot Studio Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

Very nice fo the price. Had to personalize it as far as the action etc., but thats no problem.
Couple of very minor blemishes if that concerns you. After 2 weeks its still in the front of the rack, which says alot to me...

2 years & going strong

By straightrazor

from Undisclosed

Comments about Epiphone Dot Studio Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

I don't lean heavily on the body & use custom light strings, so no problems with staying in tune (even with bending). Tomato red finish (not my first choice, but it's grown on me). Plays like a dream: Used a 1971 Gibson SG Custom previous to this, but now play this one exclusively through a Vox Valvetronix 30. Lots of guts from the alnico's, but being set neck, it lacks the high end bite a bit. Looking to put a Seymour Duncan Jazz Humbucker to handle that. Don't let the lack of fretboard inlays scare you off. It's very easy to get around. No regrets. It's a great guitar with the 335 vibe. I'd recommend one to anyone. Price was right, too.

Goog guitar value

By Christopher R. Roy

from Ocala, Florida

Comments about Epiphone Dot Studio Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar over a year ago and have never regretted it. It sounds nice, looks great and isn't so expensive that it has to be handled with "kit gloves." I often use this guitar to practice on and when guests come into the music room they see it hanging on the wall and always coment how nice it looks.

Don't Miss This Guitar

By Steve " Ashman "

from Paso Robles, Ca.

Comments about Epiphone Dot Studio Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

I'll get right to the point. This guitar looks fantastic and plays great! The sound that it produces rocks, of course it also play the blues with very little effort. This guitar sounds fantastic with no pedals and thats the true sign of a great guitar. This guitar was set up perfect from the factory and i've had no problems in the two years since I purchased it. I love this guitar and I know you will too! Like I said in the title " Don't Miss This Guitar ". Enjoy!!!

A no-brainer if you love the ES-335!

By Howard-LFtdZ

from Satellite Beach, FL

Comments about Epiphone Dot Studio Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

After pricing Gibson's ES-335, I decided that I shouldn't pour that much money into just one guitar when there are quite a few guitars that I'd like to have. I'm glad I took a chance on this guitar! The tone is exactly what I wanted out of a 335 and the ebony is real nice to look at, too.

really good

By Ben-aD.S_

from Georgia

Comments about Epiphone Dot Studio Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

For starters disregard what it says on my kind of music, I play alot of jazz on the side. This guitar is a great, affordable fill in for a 335. The action is a little high, but with knowhow thats no problem. Sound is nice and warm and with a good eq you'll be glad you didn't spring for a more expensive model. Four stars.

Better than I hoped for!

By E. Jay Schimka

from Wisconsin

Comments about Epiphone Dot Studio Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

I allways wanted a 335, but couldn't justify the price. Then I started to read the reviews on the Dot Studio, and figured I'd gamble and buy one. I got the worn brown, open box at a discount. When I received it, it was flawless! How can Epiphone do it? The hardware isn't the best, but does the job. I'm going to blow the warranty, and do some add ons, adjust the neck, file the nut to follow the radius and such. The intonation is a little off, but that can be corrected, if you know how.

A MONSTER

By olivia-Dhd0G

from michigan

Comments about Epiphone Dot Studio Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

It's a real good guitar. Got mine in white. I have played this guitar on stage, in my basement, in my bathroom, sounds awesome all around. Very light, gets out of tune a lot...but hey, don't we all? It sounds very clean without effects, but with effects it is A MONSTER. A MONSTER THAT HIDES UNDER MY BED...MY BED OF ROCK! GET THIS GUITAR! It is all you need to live!

Amazing

By Iain Blair

from Kansas

Comments about Epiphone Dot Studio Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar over the summer so that when I went back to school I would have a guitar to use for jazz band. . When played out of the box it sounded magnificent (and the worn cherry looked magnificent as well). Whether it be clean, dirty, or downright distorted this guitar has great tone. The pickups really suprised me. Before I got it was thought I would change the pickups with Gibson dirty fingers but there's no need. When played with distortion or a bit of dirt, you get so much bite and attack. I bought this guitar for jazz band but I keep it at home to play and take my solid body to school.

I love this guitar....

By Bill c/o Mastermind

from New Jersey

Comments about Epiphone Dot Studio Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

I've been playing a '68 SG my whole life and wanted a second guitar to kick around with so purchased the solid black Dot Studio. Haven't been able to put it down since!! I absolutely love this guitar. It sings, it screams, it sustains... thru my primary amp (Marshall JCM800) and little guys too! I did make a few mods to suit my style - I reversed the volume & p/u switch locations, I had to file the frets a bit to get the same action as the SG, but I got it with little work. The most important thing was I updated the pots & amp; switch with proper Gibson hardware... the original vol/tone pots taper felt all wrong and the switch felt a little weak, but beyond that I recommend this instrument highly... the pickups aren't bad at all. The tuning keys are just fine too... once the strings are stretched this guitar will stay in tune all day (!) even with some serious bending etc. All in all I thought I was getting a second guitar just to toy around with and ended up with a serious instrument that I have played exclusively since purchasing it. Maybe one day I'll splurge on a real 335 but I am not sure I need to now! If you're considering this guitar I say go for it! ps: I thought the 'studio' dot was nicer than the fully decked out 335 copies too. They felt a bit cheesy with all the binding & chrome...
