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.
Nice alternative tone; little use live.
The semi-hollow tone is something I wanted to experiment with, and the dot was an affordable way to try it out. In use, I like the sound, but find the neck very slim and narrow to use. Also, from the placement of the neck in the body, the neck seems long; third fret too far away. Obviously these things can be got used to, but the greatest shortcoming for me is that my guitar is prone to feedback at rehearsal / gig volumes so it doesn't really get the playing time it probably deserves. Nice for a change though. Nicely made and attractive appearance.
Great guitar, heavier than what you'd assume
Great guitar. Stays in tune well. The Epiphone pickups actually sound good. The jack ring fell off at some point and I had to throw one on from my parts bin. It's surprisingly heavy for a semi hollow guitar. It weighs at least as much as my telecaster.
