Probably the best semi-acoustic around for the money, The Dot is becoming a legend in its own right.
Taking the ES-335 formula and making it an affordable reality for players who can't get enough f-holes in their lives, The Dot, simply put, needs to be played to be believed. A beast of an instrument with a veneer of respectability.
"So a blonde '59 Dot-neck 335 will set you back around £20,000; a brand-new version of the same, somewhere around £2,000; and this Epi will leave you plenty of change from £300. The cost-cutting measures are the right ones, as they affect neither playability nor the sound of this cool guitar to any great extent. It looks fine, sounds great and plays great. To our minds, that's value for money indeed."
