Ever since its introduction in 2004, the Epiphone Dot Studio has been the automatic choice of semi-acoustic aficionados. Epiphone has unveiled this ‘worn-in’ finish, lending a vintage quality to these guitars that brings them even closer to the original Gibson ES-335, while maintaining the value that has made the range so successful.
The new Dot Studios have all the features you’d demand from a market leader. The comfortable semi-solid body combines with intuitive control layout, while the set maple neck promises to soak up the trials of life on the road. Tonally, the new Epiphone Dot Studios are supplied with Alnico Classic pickups and a hot item in the bridge position for even more sonic diversity, while such dues-paying hardware as Grover Rotomatic tuners and a tune-o-matic bridge ensure that this guitar is a perfect choice as a live or studio guitar. It might look like a museum piece – but it doesn’t play like one.
