I in my old age decided to get a guitar that would be more suited to Jazz (as well as the roots rock/Americana I like)

So that pretty much came down to a 335 style guitar.

The price of the Gibson 335 was way to much now I'm married, so I started looking at Eastman which are around €1000, then I came down in price to the Ibanez AS93 at €500 and finally the Epiphone The Dot which came in at €408 with a hardcase.


The cheapest guitar I own



The wide flat neck and small frets will take some getting used to but I have to say I'm impressed with the build quality and finish of this Indonesian made guitar. The poly finish is a bit plasticy but I was expecting that. The grover tuners are solid and stable, the nut whilst plastic isn't giving any issues.

I will probably upgrade the wiring, pickups and nut at some point but as it is, it gets a thumbs up from me!

Congrats! I don't agree with the age thing though smile.gif

I actually like epi.s stock, 2 friends of mine one bought an SG the other LP when I played them didn't had a feel that they needed electronic modification. Never had the chance to play a 335 though, I'd expect to be a bit more picky on tone as my expectation on that guitar would be a mid-gain tone monster smile.gif

Congrats mate! The best way to choose a guitar is by trying it by yourself. It doesn't care how much it costs, it's how good it feels.

Nice guitar! I'd like to see it at REC soon.
