New Dot today. (Like I need another) A guy at the flea market has a Epi Dot Deluxe, mint condition, sunburst, gold hardware and a gig bag. $150. Next to it is an Alvarez acoustic in nice shape for $75 with a beatup case. I talk the guy down to $180 for the pair.

Dot plays nice, everything works but it needs a setup. One of my former employees is attending guitar tech school so I'll give it to him to setup. Maybe some upgrades in store since I don't have too much into it.

Unreal deal, Picnic! Congratulations!

I've always thought that Dots were pretty reasonably priced at $399, but deals like the one you got on a Dot Deluxe, no less, are insane. Enjoy it.

Nice.

Someone offered me a trade for an acoustic I have for sale. An Ibanez AS53.

Its a 335 SH.
I just wasnt sure the deal was even. I was interested to check it out compare it to my DOT.

But in the end we couldnt come to terms.

If I "DIDNT" have a dot, I woulda traded in a second. But I stood my ground and asked for the guitar and a bean...

Happy 2000 posts for the Epi Dot Club...

This version was started 11 years ago... LOL

We lost the first one to the Great FDP Implosion of 2003.

Who knows how many more posts we had?

That's a nice gesture Hugh :)

I played a big old Dot borrowed from a feller at the local blues club this year. Did a solo spot before the band went on and I brought my Dano in open G and my Zip in open E, needed to play a couple of songs in standard tuning.

I have an Epi 339 so I did find the Dot quite an armful, but the sound of the Dot is the blues personified to me.

I brought my Anderson 3 pickup Tele and a BJ to Florida. Then I snagged a DRRI down here. Boy I wish I had brought my Dot to run the DRRI. The Duncan 59's in it would sound sweet

How do the frets hold up on the older (Korean) Dots?

I seem to acquire nicks and divots at an alarming rate on my Epi ES-339. That suggests the fret material is soft and doesn't inspire confidence as to the instrument's longevity.

I've posted to this thread several times through the years with different Dots that have come and gone. The body style is still my favorite. I have a "real" Gibson ES-335 now, as well as 3 Heritage Semi-Hollows based on my initial positive experience with Dots. While I love them all, and they are exceptional guitars, "bang for buck" award would have to go to the Dot. Amazing value. This fall I picked up this returned item from Musician's Friend for very little money. It's an Epiphone ES-339 P-90 Pro. Great guitar, save for some gritty frets.

I tried to think

but nothing happened!
