Recently I have been eyeing up the Epiphone Dot. I went down to my local shop and played one. And I have to say, I totally fell in love with it.

However, my only concern was the fact that if I wanted to replace the electronics at a later stage, it would be nearly impossible, as there is little to no access to the inside.

So, my question is - is it hard to replace/install new electronics? I would like to be able to do it myself, as my local guitar company rapes you on the installation costs.

Also, and sort of advice/tips from owners of hollow body guitars would be awesome.

Cheers

It's notoriously tricky to do...or should I rather say...fiddly. It'll take you more time but it's really worth doing. The Dot scrubs up brilliantly.

I'm a huge fan of the Epi archtops.

I got epi dot, stock electronics are pretty sweet but if you wanted to upgrade it wouldn't be that hard to do.

What about access to the Pots? From the pictures, it would seem nearly impossible to solder them on, no?

It's not impossible, it's kinda hard, You use the F holes and stuff, most of the cables are made pretty long so you can take them out.
