Biggest bang for buck in upgrading an Epi Dot in Epiphone Electrics Posted December 6, 2012 · Report reply I've had an epi dot for few years.I replaced the pickups to GFS vintage 59's from guitarfetish.com shortly after getting the dot. Thts made s huge improvement in my opinion. I should have and still should go little farther and replace the volume and tone electrics and the pickup selector switch. Probably not the easist job on a semi hollow though.But I am pretty content with where its at. It would be better yet if I did like I mentioned but its not anything to look down on the way it is now. I have some before and after tone sample s ,if interested in hearing I can send it to you.
