This 335 is perfect. Feels and sounds wonderful, plays with ease, feels and looks like a much more expensive guitar. You can't go wrong with this one, I'm amazed and love it.

"Perfect from factory"

Gone are the days of buying an Epiphone for the bones and upgrading everything.Out of the box, the bass side action was pretty high. 3 turns of a screw driver and a retune and it's perfection.Sweet, sustaining tones. The neck pickup is thick and rich, the bridge pickup bites with nice midrange.I have the Iced Tea finish and it is flawless.It's pretty loud, acoustically as well.The fingerboard is a nice, even, dark chocolatey color. There are no sharp frets, and the frets themselves are smooth and there's no grittiness when you bend a string.The tuners feel like quality.the right amount of resistance when you turn the key,.very smooth tuning.This guitar holds tune amazingly well. The nut is cut very, very well. I just spent an hour bending the hell out of notes and it's still perfectly in tune.Even the strings that come with It are decent.If this was my only guitar (it's not, I own over 20 lol), I would be happy.If you've got less than $600 to spend and you want a high quality guitar, this is the one.Now, can it be made better with some upgrades?Maybe. We shall see. It's very easy to swap out the tailpiece for a lightweight aluminum one, the studs for locking steel studs, and the inserts for steel inserts. You can even find brass saddles that fit this bridge perfectly if you know where to look, as well as steel thumbwheel posts. Throw on some locking tuners while you've got it apart, and Bob's yer auntie.This one is a keeper. And with a 12 month payment plan? I'd only have to sell plasma twice a month to pay for it!

"Epi 335 Dot 5 Star Guitar"
Overall: 10 out of 10 stars

Gone are the days where you buy an Epiphone and have to replace parts and pay for major work just so you can play it. My new Epiphone 335 Dot (in zZounds exclusive Iced Tea finish) was perfectly playable out of the box. The action was 4/64th on the treble side and 5/64th on the low E side. Frets were perfectly leveled, and weren’t gritty at all. Very smooth.The nut was perfectly cut. I really almost can’t believe it. The guitar came set up. Fit and finish was stellar. No defects in the paint around the F holes. The only things I had to do to this guitar outside of tuning it up was to oil the fretboard with some F-1 oil, and tighten a few screws a bit. Really like the “Inspired by Gibson” Epiphone guitars. I’ve had two Les Pauls out of the line, and they were awesome as well. The pickups in these guitars are great sounding.
