I found this guitar on sale at Guitar Center for $200 bucks. I tried to try it out but it was out of tune for the most part and it was hard trying to tune it by ear in the store due to the noise. When I plugged it into the amp it sounded very nice. I play a lot of blues, jazz, classic rock, and punk. This guitar is on sale for the rest of the month and from what I've read from the reviews it's a very reliable guitar, however I've read a fair amount of negative reviews saying "you get what you pay for". This leads me to be a little weary of buying this guitar. Is it a safe bet or should I save up some more money and get something that costs a little more?

dude if u want a jazz guitar for cheap, i suggest an artcore over an epiphone. Although the Dot is actually only semi-hollow, the artcores have better tone for the money. If u want a good jazz guitar, then save up. Good ones are never cheap and gah i want a friggin L5

you should probably either try it out some more, save up more for a better guitar, or pull the dick out of your mouth you ****ing **** faced fag.

Overall, the sound is good. But, the electrics and the build of the guitar is poor. Not saying you shouldn't buy it, at $200 dollars it is an excellent buy, just saying, over a while, the electronics may become annoying. Epihphone studios are usually good for just straight clean and blues playing but anything more could use a pedal. So, on that end, you are covered. Overall, for $200 bucks, it is an excellent buy. I would by it if I had the money, even though I am into metal, I need a guitar that can do cleans very well.

Thank you for your input, I think I will go buy it because of the deal and I know a bit about electronics so it'll give me something to tinker with.

Dude, there's something seriously wrong with your head.

To the threadstarter, The Epi Dot doesn't seem a bad guitar to me, although I've only played them in guitar shops. For $200 Canadian I'd snap that up. That'd be cheaper than a squire affinty wouldn't it?

i've owned one for almost two years. i've gone back and forth on it for a while, but honestly, it's served me well. the tone is pretty damn good (although my ac30 probably has a lot to do with that). it stays in tune pretty well, although i've found the third string can be iffy at times. getting a set with a wound third helps this a bit.

for $200, i say go for it.
