Its center section is made of maple rather than solid wood.  Its joints have a solid feel and a look that portrays a high level of workmanship that is meant to ensure many years of service. A closer look at the rose wood fingerboard reveals dots that give this guitar its name. The dots are well placed between medium frets that are 22 in number.

Attached to the chrome plated hardware are two humbugger pickups that are designed by Epiphone but are manufactured in Korea. Other features include good-looking machine heads, a tailpiece and a tune-O-matic bridge. The Epiphone dot electric guitar offers its users a variety of color options to choose from ranging from ebony, cherry sunburst, vintage sunburst and the cherry. All the electronic parts that are fitted on this guitar are quite solid and dependable and do not require changing

With its semi acoustic body, the Epiphone dot electric guitar is comfortable and can be easily played while seated or while standing. Due to its neck, which has a width of 43mm and a C-shaped profile that increases in depth towards the tip of the neck, the Epiphone Dot guitar has a solid vintage feel. Although it is fitted with strings that are heavy, it is quite versatile and can be used for a wide range of music genres. It is fitted with a user friendly nut that does not have glitches. This is a necessary factor that is often overlooked in other guitars in this category.

The Epiphone dot’s semi hollow body coupled with the maple body produces a sweet acoustic tone that is really versatile.  Its versatility is particularly demonstrated by its tone controls which allow predictable and smooth roll off of the treble frequency. A muddy tone can also be achieved by setting the tone to a low pitch. All the controls fitted on this guitar together with the switch are particularly responsive

Whether strapped on a shoulder or when at rest on a wall, it has a beautiful appearance that is bound to make heads turn and can easily be described as a best buy.
