Hi Guitar Masters/Experts Out there- I'm Just wondering is the Epiphone Dot Cherry good for Punk/Rock or Even Metal? Can it handle high gain pedal just incase? Cause I'm planning to buy this guitar, I just want to make sure if it suits this playing styles. Thanks in advance \ m /

It won't be so good for metal. You can get some feedback with really high gain on those Semi Hollows.

Rock and Punk should be fine.

These are their signature models but it's still the same field of tone. Look at Chris Cornells guitar.

Look at Tom Delonges guitar.

Hi Thanks for your quick reply sir Oh it cant handle that much gain huh. Yeah I've seen Tom Delonge's Sig. Guitar I think its good sir, but i think its not that more of a versatile guitar for having just one bridge pickups even if its a dirtyfinger ones. much more like a collectors item for me.

I've been playing for 37 years now and among my working collection of guitars is a 2009 worn cherry Epiphone Dot Studio with the stock pickups. I can get just about any sound I want out of it, from super squeaky clean jazzy stuff to industrial gringage, and all styles in between...they all sound and feel right! You do need to be aware of the semi hollow body's propensity for wild feedback at high volume, which can be controlled and used in an extremely musical way with some practice. If you haven't already bought this guitar, I'd say go for it...every good player needs a semi-hollow axe in their arsenal!
