About the Epiphone Dot ES-335

The Epiphone Dot ES-335, while modelled after the iconic Gibson ES-335, has become a classic in its own right. Known for its stunning looks, warm tone and playability, it’s a guitar that seems to suit every player, from beginner to seasoned pro.

Because of its semi-hollow construction, the Dot is a happy medium of the thick, creamy sound of the Epiphone Les Paul and the earthiness of its fully hollow cousin, the Epiphone Casino. This makes it extremely versatile and perfect for many styles: from blues and rock to jazz and soul, the Epiphone Dot has you covered.

It’s semi-hollow construction also makes it very lightweight meaning you can play for hours without needing a back brace!

Why Choose The Epiphone Dot ES-335?

  • Classic looks at an affordable price.
  • Versatile tone makes it perfect for a wide variety of styles.
  • Lightweight construction makes it comfortable for hours of play.

Frequently Asked Questions about Epiphone Dot ES-335

Question: Is the Epiphone Dot fully hollow?
No, the Epiphone Dot has a solid centre block of Maple running down the inside of the guitar's body. This helps reject feedback and provides a thicker, sustaining tone. This is why it is referred to as a 'semi' or a 'semi acoustic'.
Question: What kind of pickups are in the Epiphone Dot?
The Epiphone Dot has upgraded humbuckers pickups. These are an Alnico Classic in the neck position and an Alnico Classic Plus in the bridge. These pickups use Alnico 5 magnets to produce a classic, medium output sound with a good amount of treble and bass.
Question: Do the F-holes affect the sound?
Yes they do, although this depends on things like distortion and volume. Compared with a solid body guitar that is otherwise similar, the Dot has more top end and slightly less in the midrange. This allows the guitar to be very versatile in terms of its variety of sound. Clean, crunch and distorted sounds are all high quality.
