Hello one and all! Ive picked these guitars because they are all archtops and arent copies of a gibson they're all around the same price and all woul. Lovely colour and a brilliant guitar overall. I've owned a Dot, Casino and Sheraton previously and the Sheraton is always my favourite sound. I play in a Wedding band and it will look great onstage! Great service and packaging/delivery from Thomann too. Thankyou and I will be ordering lots more lovely guitars from you! The Golden Era returns with the Original Collection. Paying tribute to our iconic past, the Original Collection brings back the classic guitars that shaped sound across all generations and genres of music. Epiphone Dot vs Casino Discussion in 'Other.

The Epiphone Dot is a semi-hollowarchtop electric guitar manufactured by Epiphone, a subsidiary of Gibson. It was introduced in 1997[2] as a more affordable version of the Gibson ES-335, at the high end of entry-level pricing.[3] Reviews describe it as a robustly-constructed, versatile guitar with a smooth, powerful sound, suitable for jazz, blues and some rock styles, but lacking the high output required for heavy metal.[2][4][5][6]

Construction[edit]

The Dot has a semi-hollow body made of laminated maple. Two hollow 'wings' with f-holes[7] sit on either side of a solid block of mahogany[8] or maple[9] on which the pickups, bridge and tailpiece are mounted, which makes it less prone to feedback than a fully hollow-bodied guitar.[4] It has a glued-in neck of mahogany[10] (before 2008, maple)[2] and a rosewood fingerboard.[11] The name 'Dot' is in reference to its fretboard markers, which are simple dots, unlike other Epiphone archtop guitars such as the Casino or the Sheraton, which have more elaborate block inlays.[5] It has two alnicohumbucker pickups, each with its own volume and tone control, a three-way selector switch allowing the player to choose one or both pickups,[11] a Tune-o-matic bridge and a stop-bar tailpiece.[7] Formerly made in Korea,[10] since 2002 the Dot has been made in Epiphone's factory in Qingdao, China.[12][13]
