Are Epiphone Dot's any good? I want to get another guitar (already got a Les Paul) at some point in the future and quite like the idea of a hollow body.

Can you get a good number of music styles out of it? I know Josh Homme plays one so they must be quite good.

I have one, and it's excellent for everything I play on it. Downtuned stuff may not be too great, but classic/standard tuned metal sounds pretty good with it. I play through an old Peavey Classic 50.

dont own one, played it and it had a nice feel but people have told me they hated it. All up to opinion i guess, just like all guitars. Ive played nicer semi-hallows but overall I think the dot is pretty nice.

Love mine it's great.

I play loads of different stuff on it.

I think people get confused by hollow bodies and semi hollowbodies and think that they cant handle distortion or something. But they're just like any othe guitar, they just happen to be hollow/sem-hollow.

Also, I like black.

Dots can handle anything IMO. Mine feels great and was set up perfectly. and they CAN handle distortion and dont get lots of feedback due to the block in the center which makes it semi-hollow

yeah im in love with my dot.
it sounds better on clean than my schecter.
which is kinda funny cause the dot is worth like 300$ and the schecter is worth over 1000$ (supposedly, theyre like 850$ in guitar center)

Hey, I've also been looking at these and in my search have come across the Ibanez Artcore AS73, and AS93. They may be worth a look.

I looked at one yesterday and they are very nice. I expected it to be chunky but it is actually quite thin. Out of interest how does it compare to the Sheraton and Ibanez AFS? Obviously they cost more but other than that?

I have an AS73 and I'm totally in love it. It has a beautiful round sound and the finish is faultless. You really must check them out.

I don't know about the Ibanez, but I much prefer my dot to the sheraton, they are of a slightly different shape and feel. I love the dot, it is very versatile, I can play blues, jazz, rock n roll, classic rock, prog, blues rock and even some heavy metal. The thing about it is that it gives you a much more powerful sounding guitar. Many cheaper solid guitars sound quite weak in comparison to this.
