Epiphone is long famous for its own original semi-hollowbody models from the 1950s Kalamazoo, Michigan era, including the Riviera and the Sheraton. During the same time those guitars were designed and constructed in Kalamazoo, the ES-335, first introduced in 1958, became a favorite of blues, rock, country, and pop acts for its elegant design and wide array of colorful tone combinations.

Here, the Epiphone Dot, named in reference to its simple "Dot" fingerboard inlays, brings the sustain and resonance of the classic semi-hollow design for less than most solid body guitars would set you back today. The "Dot" is essentially the same hollowbody bohemoth that has been the bell weather of every rock and roll breakthrough. Here and now, the "Dot" puts that classic sound and over 40 years of refinements in your hands, the Epiphone way.

Semi-hollow Design, Solid Craftsmanship

The Dot is constructed of premium laminated maple with a mahogany center block and a hand-fitted, glued-in 24.75" scale mahogany neck. Other details include a rosewood fingerboard with traditional "Dot" inlay, a 1.68" nut, a SlimTaper™ "D" profile, and the traditional Sloped Dovewing Epiphone headstock.

Ringin' Like A Bell

The Dot, like all Epiphones, features quality electronic parts including full-size 1" 500K Ohm potentiometers, Epiphone's all-metal pickup selector switch, and a heavy-duty output jack. Its fabulous semi-hollowbody sound is voiced by a pair of real Alnico Classic™ humbucker pickups. Traditional Kalamazoo style TopHat knobs control volume and tone for each pickup.
