EPIPHONE VINTAGE SUNBURST ARCHTOP DOT 335



For those that seek a Gibson ES-335, but can't swing the lofty price, this Epiphone Dot is unplayed and in mint condition.  Not a second or refirb and an attractive alternative to the Gibson counterpart. Like the original, the Dot features a laminated maple body, a glued-in mahogany neck, and a dot-inlaid fretboard. Its '57 Classic pick-ups have alnico magnets (just like the vintage units), and the cherry finish is period correct. The stop tailpiece and bonnet knobs are authentic touches, as are the ''Gibson'' engraved trussrod cover and the orange sticker visible through the upper f-hole. The only differences are the headstock shape, the ''E'' logo on the pickguard, and the bridge (which is wider than a Gibson Tune-o-matic). The Dot is well made. Its medium-sized frets are lightly polished and well shaped, the neck joint is clean, the hardware and the finish is flawless.



This guitars neck is a little girthier than the slim necks fitted to some 335's. It fills your hand nicely, and the low action makes it a delight to play. Played through a variety of amps, the Dot does a decent job of evoking the plump shimmer of a real 335. Higher gain settings yield some of the meaty rhythm colors and round, sweet lead tones associated with Larry Carlton and Robben Ford. The Dot features oversized volume pots that preserve the highs as you roll down the volume. The tone controls offer smooth, predictable treble rolloff.  Case can be had for additional money.  Contact for price
