Adding to my Epiphone collection, last night I purchased this new Epi Dot Limited Edition in Pelham Blue. I had been wanting to include a 335 style hollow-body for quite some time and when I learned of this Dot being available new in the box at my local Gibson/Epiphone dealer in my favorite Gibson color of all time, I jumped on the opportunity to take it home! Out of the box the set-up was perfect and need no adjustment whatsoever. The action: perfect!

Here are some pics when it first arrived home. Today it will get a Gerlitz Guitar Honey treatment to the Rosewoods fretboard and some extended playng this evening through my VOX AC15C1-BL.

Very Nice! Just out of curiosity, what is the model number? More specifically, what are the color designation letters? Is it "ML" or "PB"? I'm just trying to figure out if Pelham Blue and Metallic Light Blue are the same color.

Thanks!

Thanks! I haven't seen many of these at all... Not sure what the total count was, but they seem low production in late 2011.

Thanks, TS! Yes, the VOX is actually the limited edition AC15C1-BL. VOX manufactured 650 of these amps and similar to the regular line, they sound awesome.

RTH, you're absolutely right in that they tagged this with the DOT - ML designation. So I guess they chose the Pelham Blue color and somewhere along a worker tagged the labels in the computer as ML. On the other hand, the DR100 Limited has the proper PB label color designation. Go figure...


I've always placed Pelham Blue as slightly lighter than the Epi's Metallic Light Blue, the latter of which is seen here:

I like the fact that the F-holes are also blue, rather than being painted black. Very nice!

Ok. Thanks! I just keep running in to older models that look like PB, but are labeled as ML. A lot of 1996-97 stuff and I'm not sure if PB was an official color back then. Knowing that a PB model is labeled as ML helps a lot, actually. Thanks again!

Congrats on the PB unit. That color is cool and hot at the same time.
