Vintage models (with vintage problems) can't complete with the Epiphone Dot, which is simply one of the best deals today for guitar players who want the classic sound of an ES-335 at an affordable price.

Epiphone is long famous for its own original semi-hollowbody models from the 1950s Kalamazoo, Michigan era, including the Riviera and the Sheraton.

The "Dot" is the same axe that has been the bell weather of every rock and roll breakthrough. And now for the first time, the "Dot" puts that classic sound and over 40 years of refinements in your hands, the Epiphone way.
