  • Epiphone Dot mods (nearly) complete...with pics!

    So as much as I loved my dot before, i couldn't resist modding it to something totally different.

    sooo I've
    -filled the neck pup cavity
    -filled the lower f-hole
    -new trapeze tailpiece
    -h-sized p90
    -single vol control
    -painted it metallic 'ford paris blue'

    still to do..cut new pickguard without the gap for a neck p'up.

    and pics






    really like the look and the sound is really nice too. and the playability is as nice as it always was.

    i'm happy

    I would have spent a little more time filling that neck pickup. It's always worth it to spend more time in prep to get things perfect.

    Cool idea!

      yeah i rushed it a little, but it's greatly exaggerated in the pic proper bright outside so any flaws kind of caught the light.

            Awesome you could do that, so forgive the dumb question. Why? What does it sound like now, as compared to before? I'm interested in getting a 335/339 type guitar, and am curious what you didn't like about it?

              I don't like it. It looks like complete ass.

              But I don't like single pickup, single volume, no tone control guitars.

                  I like it, it's original for sure...maybe ditch the pickguard, or get one in white pearloid cutout for only one pup...and a white pearl topped knob? anyhow, it's cool...

                    You could always disguise it by installing a pickup there.

                      I've been telling him that for ages..

                      I like the color, I like the 80's vibe with the single pup/volume, but I concur on the neck pickup filling. It stands out like a neon sign.. Maybe do something like this with it?



                      Take the pickguard up to cover the entire neck pup area? Either that, or strip it and re-fill it to be smooth. That's what I'd do anyway, but then, stuff like that would keep me awake at night until it was perfect.. (ocd, ya know..)

                        It is definately unique. Kind of Tom Delonge style (Hollow body with 1 pickup) Can I ask what color was it before and besides replacing the tail piece what othe mods did you do- did you replace the stock pup? If so with what? It is definately a cool color and kudos for changing it to fit your needs!

                            I like it, it's different. Love the color. I plan to make a tele that color with white pearloid bindings. Is that close to the Dave Grohl gibson color.

                              If you wanted it to look Pelham (the Dave Grohl color) you would spray a clear coat with some yellow in it to green it up a little.

                              Only thing I would change would be the tailpiece - that one screams Jay Turser and the Asian makes. I would put a Bigsby or a 335/Casino style on it with the diamond.
