Product Description

A great value in an iconic semi-hollowbody, the Epiphone Dot Studio is a no nonsense tone machine. The simple design distills the classic Dot series down to its very essence to deliver all the vintage jazz flavor in an affordable guitar. Though spartan in its features, the Dot Studio maintains the fundamental feel and tone so cherished by Epiphone semi-hollow enthusiasts. The neck is bit rounder than those most commonly affixed to 335-style guitars, but still affords the comfort needed for those hot jazz licks. The dual humbucker pickups are tightly wound vintage alnicos, which means in addition to bold, jazzy mid-range, you also get a rock bite that sounds great when run through a distortion channel or pedal.

Features:

- Laminated mahogany body providing full, bright character
- Comfortable set mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard
- Attractive faded finishes highlight grain of top wood
- Dual open alnico humbuckers provide rich tones with plenty of rock-worthy edge
- Distinctive black hardware
- Epiphone limited lifetime warranty with 24/7/365 customer service

If you've always dreamed of owning a semi-hollowbody, the Epiphone Dot studio is an outstanding value on an iconic model.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (52 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Can't beat the value - or playability!"
Sound: I love my new Epiphone DOT Studio. As a rhythm guitarist, I appreciate the warm and full-bodied tone; yet it still has the ability to cut through to deliver leads and melody lines. I had been looking at a Taylor T5, at about six times the price. But this is comparable in both tone and playability. I couldn't be happier with this purchase decision. Feature: The guitar has dual humbucker pickups, 1 three position switch, a single tone control and a single volume control. I love it for it's simplicity, but I could see where some players might want more versatility. Fr the kind of playing I do, it's not an issue. Ease of Use: The playability of this guitar is amazing, and the adjustable bridge leads me to believe it could be set up to suit anyone's preferences. The neck is just a little wider than a typical electric - more like an acoustic guitar, but it is not as thick, so it's real easy to play. Quality: The fit and finish have a rich look and feel. The guitar was unblemished. The hardware feels solid and well made. A friend had suggested changing the tuners before he even saw the guitar, as he said typically, lower priced guitars skimp on decent tuners, so I was prepared to do that if needed. Now that I've had the guitar for about sic weeks. I'm fine with the tuners. The guitar holds its tune really well, and tuning is easy. Value: I should have paid at least twice as much for what I received. I could not be happier with the value of this purchase. I usually don't buy a guitar without playing it first, so I was nervous about the purchase. I based my decision on the user product ratings - which were very positive, so I took a chance. I'm more than pleased! Manufacturer Support: I haven't had any issues since receiving the guitar, but the support for the sale was excellent and very responsive. I used the price match guarantee - it was simple, easy and very timely with responses. The Wow Factor: I got the Worn Vintage Sunburst, and I love the looks. I love the understatement of the piece. I love handing this ax over to guys who have Les Pauls, ES-335s and the like and watch them drool. Some of them have paid 10 times what I paid - and they LOVE this guitar. Overall: I keep guitars in the 'forever' category. I never sell, although I have given a few away. But I think I'll be keeping this one for a LONG time.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "The best guitar for the price you will ever, ever find, so go online or call ZZsounds NOW!!!!"
Sound: The Epi Dot Studio has a great sound. The warmth is there. along with the mids and crispy highs. When you plug it in to a good amp it even sounds better. The Alnico Humbuckers will give you the full range of sounds, which include a jazz, country, to rock. Feature: The low profile controls give you a easy to operate tone and volume. This guitar is a no-nonsense monster. No pick guard or tremelo bar is needed, as you can bend these low slung strings by blowing on them. Ease of Use: The Dot Studio is easy to play, and more important, fun to play. With what effects you choose to apply. you will not be dissapointed. Quality: The Dot is well made and a solid guitar. With proper care and cleaning products made by Gibson and sold by ZZsounds you will have this guitar treating you well for a long time. Value: This guitar is one of the very best values you can have. What you get for the low price from Epiphone is extremely rare and an instant surprise. Believe in those great reviews that you are reading regarding these Dot Studios, every word. Manufacturer Support: I have had to talk with Gibson and ZZsounds and I can tell you they both treated me with respect and took care of my wishes promptly and with interest. The Wow Factor: This is one very appealing and sexy music maker, that will only make you look like you know what BEAUTY is, because you have it in your hands. Overall: I will keep this beauty forever, and never sell, trade or smash onstage.
Style of Music: I have played all styles, love it all
