when I look at my guitar, I notice that all the proportions seem to resemble gibson's ES-339.

my guitar


ES-339 and ES-335


It bares more resemblence to the ES-339 right?

1. F-holes
2. Size
3. Knobs to F-holes
4. Distance from switch to Neck Pickup Volume Knob

The biggest difference I see with the ES-339 and the Dot is Neck Binding and the Jack placement.

...or did Gibson borrow the idea from Epiphone?
...am I crazy?

I'd say that the Dot is based on the 335 like the user above me, due to the Humbuckers, bridge and inlays.

EDIT: With the neck binding, your are comparing your Epiphone guitar with a Gibson guitar so there will be some aesthetic differences.

Bridge and pickups were changed in 1958, but the guitar came out in 57. Has anyone else noticed the difference between the BODY shape and features? I had double thoughts about getting a dot, thinking it'd be too big. It was only about 1 and a half the size of my old guitar.
