Epiphone Dot Deluxe Reviews
All in all I think Epiphone has a great idea with this guitar. The construction is decent and the feel of the guitar is nice for a hollowbody.

I bought it of Ebay for $370 shipped. It was brand new but a factory second.
It is so beautiful! It is vintage sunburst with tigre striped maple top. It is the most gorgeous guitar in the world! Really warm tone. I like having two volume and two tone for the humbuckers. I can set the neck humbuckers volume at 0 and use the 3-way switch as an on off switch. This is useful for canceling feedback at certain times. It comes with grover tuners which stay real nice. The deluxe has beautiful gold hardware. real shiny. actions low. pots dont crackle. I love it.
The neck is painted and glossed so it doesnt slide real easy like some guitars(strats). but not a problem, it still slides. its big, but i like that. hard to get a solidbody sound out of, its possible with neck humbucker and amp tweaking, but buy a solid body if you want that.
great! i bought a factory second but could only see a few blemishes such as smudged glue on the binding. very small. great frets. the maple top and finish is amazing. the nut seems a little cheap but doesnt cause problems so who cares.
buy the deluxe. this guitar is great. i have no regretsshaun
