        My old black dot studio has a plain fretboard, the dots are on the upper part if I recall. Its also a gloss black with white piping. Ive had it for some years now, only change up has been the knobs as I switched them for old witch hats. Originally I was going to put some GFS Dream 180's in it but the damn thing is so dark sounding its near depressing.

            OK, I have only played it acoustically tonight, I'll plug it in tomorrow. First impressions: well made, very clean and precise. No tuning issues or gear slippage. Feels sturdy. Looks fabulous. Very nicely resonant unplugged. So far, it compares favorably with my Dot and black Dot Studio. Fretboard feels good, no rough edges. Hardware seems good. More after I plug it in and really work it out.

                    Sweet!



                    I'm curious to know how it stacks up against your regular Dot...are the specs pretty much the same?

                        Electrically, this is a Rock guitar. The sounds from the open coil pickups are very hot. Not a mellow 335 sound, but it can approximate one. It's very fun to rock this thing. More after more time playing it. It's certainly an incredible value, as is. As with my other Dot and Dot Studio, these guitars continue to be impressive.

                            The specs seem to be identical to my 2004 Dot Studio, except for chrome hardware. The Dot Studios and Dots are among Epiphone's best offerings, I think.

                              I've liked every Dot Studio I've ever picked up. Could never bring myself to bite the bullet mainly because of the black hardware.

                              The 1 tone 1 vol thing too, but mainly the black hardware.

                              If they had made that one a few yrs back I'd probably own it.

                                The two knob set-up works well for me, anyway. The all-black hardware on my black Dot Studio looks fine, but I like the chrome on my new Dot Studio.
