This Epiphone DOT is a real dream for the price! Excellent construction, overall feel and tone for the fraction of the cost of a true Gibson. The DOT series approximates the design of the classic 335 and this is an early production model that just looks and feels amazing. Deep, classic red finish with a vintage profile neck. Pickups sound accurate with no noise and good output. Small signs of wear and tear such as fret wear, tarnished screws, some finish scratches/dings, a mark on the headstock but functionally it is wonderful shape and ready to rock for decades!
