Punkish and stuff like that...err does Blink 182 help?

I cant decide fro mthe Dot or Dot Studio...which ones better? Because the studio doesnt seem to have fret markers...and Im still a beginner :|

Id like to get a black or white guitar...the studio has both choices, I think the dot has only the black choice.

well, "studio" versions are plain cosmetically, cheaper but with similar quality.

i think its fine if u want an epi dot. but so u know they have a vintage, classic rock sound to them. im sure with the right amp u can play most music styles with them, but heavy stuff is a real stretched.

Thanks...dam, I rlly need to try the guitars at a guitar shop soon but I dont have that much time to go out and stuff lately...thanks for the advice...as in similar quality. does it usually mean better? lol.

it usually means the same, but a little more plain looking.

they coined the term studio, because guys used to use the "ugly" guitars for studio work, and the standards / customs for stage.

Yay thanks =] Im still learning...actually, I still cant decide what guitar to get...the dot or studio...hmm.

I have the Epi Dot, not the studio, and I love it. It works for every style I play apart from high-gain metal (too much feedback). Puink, blues, rock, the works. Like some others have said I think the difference between mine and the studio is mostly cosmetic, although it has only 1 volume / 1 tone pot rather than 2 of each so it might not be as versatile tone-wise. Go to a shop, try both - it's the only way to know for sure.

THere are fret markers on the side of the neck. When you get the guitar, you'll soon realise you use the side ones more than the ones on the fretboard itself

ok heres what i would do with 2000

1500=amp and effects
500=better than decent guitar

im talking in great british pounds not dollars, although everything in america is about half the price

For Punkish type of stuff try an ESP Jeff Hanneman, I think those are pretty nice for punk

Don't listian to eric. Get whatever you want for punk. The dot would be killer, make you sound very original. Punk is about having the balls to do whatever you want, and not give a ****. Punk is about attuide in music, so play what ever you want, just play with heart and balls.

That's why I put the winking sign next to it, I was kidding, I think that maybe an American Fender HSS Strat might be good for punk..or try somehting from a Custom Shop somwwhere..or go to a luthier and tell him to build one for ya.
