Epiphone ES-335 Dot Ebony 2013
Epiphone Dot, black, made in China 2013. The 335 is surely the most recognisable guitar in the semi-hollow/hollow/jazzbox genre; the Epiphone version has surely helped many players fall in love with big body electrics. This one is in superb condition and looks super classy in slick gloss black. The neck is a moderate round shape and excels especially for rhythm playing. The sturdy bridge and tailpiece and Grover tuners mean this holds tune like a champ; it's a reassuring thing to have in the hands. The classic creamy, thick 335 low end is balanced by a warm and punchy midrange; this is especially great with a gentle dose of drive. Dot hits the spot!
