Product Description

The Epiphone Dot Archtop is a classic amongst rock and jazz guitarists. With construction modeled after the legendary ES-335, the Dot Archtop is a great, affordable way to get the same familiar semi-hollow tone. The Dot shares much in common with the ES-335 -- from the alnico-magnet humbucker pickups to the set mahogany neck to details like the "Gibson" engraved trussrod cover and stopbar tailpiece. Comfortably priced within range of working musicians, the Epiphone Dot Archtop makes a great entry-level jazz guitar for any player.

Hear it in action with this zZounds exclusive video:


Warm, Full-bodied Sound

The Dot Archtop features a classic semi-hollow design and a pair of humbuckers to provide warm, full-bodied sound. The dual alnico pickups are modeled after the classic era humbuckers that defined the jazzy tones of semi-hollowbodies from the '60s. For versatility, the Dot also has a 3-position pickup selector to switch between pickup combinations. While the hollow wings of the Dot Archtop provide excellent body and sustain, the middle is a solid piece of wood which works to reduce feedback. Its body binding and laminated maple body looks great in the natural finish, while the red and ebony options present their own stylish flair. The neck is slightly rounder than the ultra-thin style of some ES-335s, but remains extremely playable for quick jazz licks.

Features:

- Classic semi-hollowbody design, ideal for jazz
- Dual alnico-magnet humbuckers for a big, warm sound
- Vintage hollowbody appointments with "Gibson" engraved truss rod cover and stopbar tailpiece
- Laminated maple body and top with mahogany neck
- Rosewood fretboard with iconic dot inlays
- Epiphone limited lifetime warranty with 24/7/365 customer service

The Epiphone Dot Archtop offers excellent value in a semi-hollowbody. Great as a first jazz guitar or as a backup for experienced players, the Epiphone Dot Archtop is a contemporary favorite.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (400 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Such A Great Guitar!!!"
Sound: The sound of this guitar is nearly perfect for what I play. The quality of sound is amazing...it is exactly what I want. The guitar responded to the way I play as if I had owned it for 50 years. This guitar is perfect for my music style(punk/rock/alternative) this guitar would be great live, for a recording or for practice. It destroys the Fenders I have tried out before and my friends Epiphone, this Epiphone dot, along with all the others I have heard are incredible guitars. Feature: Two tone knobs, and two volume knobs along with a built in switch that you can use in place of a footswitch. Quality: This product is made very well. It doesn't go out of hardly ever, you can play it for a good two or three hours straight and it will still be nearly perfectly in tune. The guitar is made very well and has a lifetime warranty which you can't beat. Value: For 430 dollars this guitar is a steal. I really have no clue how Epiphone can make a guitar this nice, sell it for so cheap and make any money...this is a great guitar and truly underpriced. Manufacturer Support: Haven't dealt with them yet. The Wow Factor: When I first heard and saw this guitar I wanted it. You have to play it to know what I meen. Overall: I think this guitar will be with me until it wears out or I die. With a lifetime warranty I think this guitar will make the long haul pretty easily.
Style of Music: punk/rock/alternative

"Dot... Dot... Dot..."
Sound: Two weeks ago I tried a used epiphone Dot at my local music store and almost didn't buy it because of the price ($260.00). I really liked its look and tone but I couldn't believe it could be as good as I thought it was because of the price they were asking. I thought I was missing some major flaw in it. I doubted myself. I tried a number of much more expensive new guitars and kept coming back to the Dot. I was prepared to spend five times what they were asking for the Dot. I left the store without buying a guitar and couldn't get the Dot out of my mind. I went back an hour later. Buying this guitar was the best deal I ever made on an instrument in all my 25 years of playing. Feature: So far so good. I can see the switch is cheap and the pods could be changed but so what. It sounds great and when and if they give me trouble I'll change them. Oh yeah, the nut is plastic. Quality: Change the hardware and pickups if you want. The rest of this guitar is killer. Value: I've never seen a better deal. I would give it an 11 on a scale of 10. Manufacturer Support: Never needed any. The Wow Factor: Looks great unless the Flying-V is your ideal of the perfect looking guitar. My Dot is red. The finish is flawless. Overall: Every guitar is diffrent. You can pay a lot for a 'big name' guitar and still end up with a turkey. You just have to try them out. I can tell you from experience, the name on the guitar doesn't make it sound good or bad--it's the indivigual guitar. If you're looking as a collector and the name is the thing and re-sale is important the dot is out of the running from the start. But if you're looking for big sound with a small price tage I say try out some Dots. My Dot is one great instrument. I can't say they all are. I took it to a jam session and it was still in tune when I took it out of the case. We were playing jazz standards, not a lot of string bending. I didn't have to tune it once in two hours. I couldn't believe it. I kept checking it with a tuner. If I find another like this one tomorrow I'd buy it.
Style of Music: versatile lots of stuff

What Our Customers Are Saying About zZounds "zZounds has proven to me that they have the best customer service and support of any online music store. The first amplifier I received was having some issues. Obviously not zZounds' fault. Could have been faulty from the manufacturer or damaged in shipping. Using the expedited return option I had the replacement amp sitting at my door in less than 48 hours after calling them about it. Just in time for a block of studio time I had set up. zZounds seriously came to the rescue and saved the day on this one." - customer on October 28, 2014
