Rating and Reviews: Epiphone LTD Dot Studio

Hear your notes sing with the hollow-body resonance of the Epiphone Dot Studio. Its slim-taper D profile neck makes playing fret-burning runs comfortable.

Musical Background: I've been playing many instruments for many years non-professionally.
Music Style: Rock, Indie, Electronic
Back to Product Information
Overall: I have about 10 stringed instruments at the moment. About 5-6 of them electric guitars, all solidbody. I've always wanted to pick up a semi-hollow or a hollowbody but I was too afraid it would be limited in the range of sound, and therefore, how much I would play it. Forget about that. If this is your first electric guitar or if you just have some extra cash for an extra guitar burning a hole in your pocket, pick this guitar up and know that it's probably one of the best buys on the planet in a new guitar. The pickups are totally better than adequate and the guitar is dynamic without feeding back or being too microphonic. It's capable of playing a wide range of music with more depth than any of my Les Pauls or my Strat-alikes. You really cannot beat this guitar for $300, and that's acknowledging that taste is subjective. You can make this guitar sound serviceable for any kind of music and get dynamics and pickup clarity that most people pay a lot more money for. It stays in tune, and even seems quite sturdy for a semi-hollowbody, though I wouldn't go out of my way to test that.

Overall: This guitar is fantastic right out of the box. Good craftsmanship of the neck,body,and the paint. I got it with no damage.scratches,etc... I just had to set up intonation which wasnt that bad. And I also lowered the strings down a bit. Shipping was quick and had no hassles what so ever. And with ZZounds four payment plan it was very affordable.

Overall: I have many guitars, including two other Epiphone Dots (one of those is a black Dot Studio). My cherry red Dot Studio has become a go to guitar for me. Really well made, great playability and sound. Very beautiful, as well. The price is amazing!
