So I experimented with different styles and tones. My only complaint and why this not a super high grade is that it gets out of tune frequently. The frets could use a bit more polishing, but they are all level and well-dressed. The overdrive tones were quite honestly not much to write home about. It fits this guitar perfectly the way a case is meant to fit, snug without being too tight, and it appears to be solidly built.
I've owned many guitars over the years and this is one of my favorites. The Review: I was very pleased when the guitar arrived and I checked it out. This guitar served as Lennon's main guitar from then on, including the '66 tours, when I saw it at Shea Stadium. The quality of this Epiphone guitar left nothing to be desired. The most visual difference between the two almost identical guitars is that Harrison's Casino had a Bigsby and Lennon's Casino came with the stock trapeze tailpiece. Epiphones in general tend to lack consistency, which can be a problem when shopping for guitars like this.
I have quite a few guitars hanging on my walls but as soon as I put up a Cherry Red Dot on my wall, it was clear how striking this guitar really is. Actually, every other guitar I've brought needed to have the same adjustment. Featuring Alnico Classic Humbuckers, Grover Rotomatic Machine Heads, and a Flame Maple Veneer top and body in Aquamarine and Blueburst color finishes. It comes stock with gauge 10-46. Rating is an average rating that is calculated by using publicly available numeric rating information musicians entered while writing review of Epiphone Dot Deluxe Flametop. The middle position offers a definite 'clang' to the tone, and strummers will find all they need here.
There are two Epiphone design, Korean humbuckers, a tune-o-matic bridge and stop tailpiece and a set of modern-looking machineheads. It is not too bad, but not the easiest I've played on. I've in the past purchased 4 guitars from sweetwater, this Epi dot cherry being the 5th. The set up out of the box was not very good. Feature: The features on this guitar are pretty standard for a guitar of it's type. Knew the EpiDot had a l-o-n-g reputation, and now that I own one, I know why. The Dot features oversized volume pots that preserve the highs as you roll down the volume.
Didn't like the feel of the neck. I wasn't expecting much due to a traumatic prior epiphone purchase from back in my teens. It's just as if you paid the whole amount up front! I got it home and was playing around with it and it sounded almost as good as my Les Paul, so, I decided to change the strings and when I got the strings off, I took out the pickups to see what they were, and whoever had it before me put a set of 57' Classics in it! I highly recommend this guitar for anyone who is looking to delve into hollowbody guitars. You have to play it to know what I meen. Overall: This is a great guitar after pro setup I couldn't get it to stay in tune at first so I took it to my local music store and had set up.

Instead of plinking the block straight on top of the back, a Gibson's arched back is filled with thin strips of wood, then planed flat. Manufacturer Support: I have not had a need to contact customer service. Manufacturer Support: 10 is what Epiphone deserves. Neck is smooth and fast, Fret work is outstanding. Higher gain settings yield some of the meaty rhythm colors and round, sweet lead tones associated with Larry Carlton and Robben Ford, but the pickups definitely lack the detail, dimension, and vibe of early Gibson Humbuckers.
Ease of Use: For a guitar of this size, one would expect it to be quite heavy, but it's actually lighter than my Epiphone G-400. Ease of Use: I don't see how it could be any better. This feature has been retained on Gibson and Epiphone thinline semis to this day, although in this case it's made of maple. Quality: Quality of the bulid is quite stunning. In the early 20th century, Epiphone went head-to-head against Gibson in the archtop market, producing models like the Emperor, Broadway and Triumph, that went down as legends in the music history books.
This Dot was no exception-really needed it. Overall: I don't think I would ever get rid of it unless one of my sons talked me out of it and,that would take some talking. It's a thing of beauty now. Amplified clean sounds are chunky and tight with a definite midrange emphasis, and overdriven amp tones are extremely aggressive with ballsy lows and mids that snap and snarl and jump right out of the speaker cone. Quality: There were some paint spots missing on the f-holes. It went from mud to bright and clear.
