« Great! »

The Epiphone Dot Studio is a clone of the classic Gibson ES-335 Semi-Hollowbody electric guitar. It has a mahogany top, back, sides, and a set in place neck. The neck is maple with a rosewood fretboard. It has two Vintage Alnico V plus pickups and a 3 way selector switch with a tone knob, and a volume knob. I believe they are made in the USA, though I could be wrong. It has 22 jumbo sized frets and a 12" fingerboard radius. The guitar is light and fast and very smooth to play, and really great looking. The finish is great and I love the brown woody look.

UTILIZATION

The guitar is a great play, and has a great range of tones. It's comfortable to wear, and doesn't weigh too much. Feels good on the shoulders and is comfortable to sit with. The sounds range from mellow and subdues to sharp and bluesy. It's great for hard rock, jazz, or acoustic sounds too. The neck is nice and fast and feels really good, and the frets are all perfect. It's a real treat to play, and I just love the action on it.

SOUNDS

The Dot Studio sounds great clean or distorted, and offers a wide plethora of sounds to pick from. I can get a good clean 80's shimmer with some reverb and chorus, or I can get a nice crunchy modern rock sound with a distortion pedal. It's also great for jazz with a nice smooth, mellow tone that's very even across it's frequency range.

OVERALL OPINION

Overall, the Dot Studio is an awesome option for someone who wants a good guitar and doesn't want to shell out. The 335 looks and vibe rock, and the sounds are sweet. It's great to perform with and gives a nice classy look on stage. It's comfortable, affordable, and an all around great guitar.
