  • Epiphone Dot versus Dot Deluxe: Differences?

    What are the differences between an Epiphone Dot versus a Dot Deluxe? From what I gather, is the difference only the gold plated hardware? Also, are the pickups the same on both models? The description for the Deluxe states a "'57 classic alnico humbuckers" and the Dot simply states "dual humbuckers." Thanks

    I think the differences are purely cosmetic. The deluxe has a flamed top and gold hardware; I think that's it.

      That is what I suspected although the flametop and vintage sunburst look a bit similar to me. But the Deluxe does go a bit further in describing there PU whereas the Dot simply states HBs.

        From addtional research, it appears the Deluxe is a bit heavier and a majority states that it has a thicker neck. But what is interesting, not everyone agrees to the latter.

            the neck on the deluxe is definetely chunkier.... and the quality on the deluxe is more suspect in my opinion. bleeding paint around the f-holes and some portions not even painted.... I ordered one and returned it. I suggest getting a regular DOT

              I don't know about the neck since I've never played a regular Dot. However, the quality on mine is top-notch, with none of the issues you mention.
