This is the Epiphone 335 style guitar. It's typical Epiphone in being very good value for the money. On the plus side, the neck is fabulous and the resonance is lovely (play it acoustic and you'll know what I mean
It's weakness is the slightly muddy pickups, which is OK when you use the bridge or both together, but in the neck position you definitely have a bit of a mudbucker. Less significant, the finish can be slightly lazy, but nothing affecting the playability. Epis have terrible resale value but they are better than people think. As Josh Homme ably demonstrated, you can sound great on one of these if you have the chops. And besides, it looks awesome.
Great affordable guitar!
I got this guitar ( albeit lightly used) and it is one of my favorites! Has a nice, maneuverable neck and fret board, great gloss finish, and awesome, warm Gibson humbucker pickups that go GREAT with distortion and/or fuzz! My only minor qualm with this guitar is that it can get heavy at times. This a great guitar for gigging, jamming, entertaining... you name it, this guitar is sure to deliver!
Like playing in a dream and you wake up still playing.
Epiphone Dot Cherry red with Dirty Fingers Humbucker in the bridge. This guitar wants to be heard. From a beautiful resonance when strummed acoustically, to the warmth of the neck pickup purring through the upper registers, to the bold and crisp attack of the Dirty Fingers in the bridge, this guitar seems almost too good. The neck feels magical, like is was shaped just for my hand. I would like to believe the previous owner had the guitar professionally set up. It doesn't seem possible that frets could be dressed so elegantly straight out of the factory. A 2004 Chinese guitar that has barely seen any blemishes in its 16 years. A welcome addition to the flock.
It's got that sound
Mine was very poorly set up. Tuning of certain strings wavers when played harder. Needs smoothing of the fret edges. OTHER THAN THAT... THIS THING SOUNDS AMAZING FOR WHAT IT IS. Really pretty decent stock pickups, brighter than most humbuckers. It's probably the 2nd best sounding guitar I own. And more versatile than you might expect. From twang and jangle to warm dark blues, I can get what I need out of this guy, and even specifically a full punching but still hollow sound I can't really get from any of the other guitars in my tool box. So finishing aside, this is a pretty well designed guitar, if not slightly mishandled in the manufacturing.
Can't afford a Gibson 335? Try an Epiphone Dot...
If you can't afford a Gibson 335 then an Epiphone Dot is a good alternative for a fraction of the cost. The build quality is good with decent finishing. You can upgrade them with new wiring and Gibson pups to improve an already good sound. I have a Korean made Dot which receive favourable reviews but equally the Chinese Dots seem to get good reviews too. I've been impressed with my Epiphone Dot overall and would recommend them.
I Call Her Big Red.
I lucked out and found a lefty that had already been modded. With open-coiled Gibson pickups ('57 Classic, neck/498T, bridge), and a wrap-around Bigsby Vibrato tailpiece, this thing gives me the dynamic control, shapeable feedback, and overall versatility to play just about anything I want.
Epiphone has done a great jobs like the Casino... but the 335 style it´s easy to obtain with the The Dot. I love the cherry red colour, like the guitar of Chuck Berry or Noel Gallagher and it sounds magnificent, It´s and example of a great guitar without spend moneya lot of. Perfect to play classic rock.
