Dot vs Sheraton

Recommended Posts

Sheri's are prettier (multi-ply body binding, neck and headstock binding, inlays in the fretboard,

and the "vine" headstock, and have a nicer neck (IMHO). The "Dot" is the "plain Jane," of the

two...But, will certainly get the job done. People (here especially) seem to "mod" both,

so...that's probably not a factor. I'd go "Sheraton," but...that's just me!

Important thing is...which one do YOU "prefer?"

I prefer the Dot just because it's a better deal. Most of the extra money on the Sheraton is going towards the bling and I don't like having to coddle a guitar that has gold hardware. However I have to admit that the Sheraton has a very nice neck profile compared to the Dot... so you might want to try 'em both and pick the one that's most comfortable to you.

I'd say get the dot deluxe' date=' it beats the sheri in "bling factor" with that flame top, and MF is selling 'em for 400.[/quote']

 

I really dislike the necks on the dot and the QC on most dots (I have played) are just really really below Par in Australia. The Sheraton in my opinion is by far a better guitar in all aspects. Talk about "bling factor", in regards to a flame top my Sheraton has beautiful flame happening.

Buy the Sherri because after a month or two owning the dot you will still want the Sherri, so don't waste your money on a purchase that will only ease your gas for a month. Epi make some of the best hollow bodies and semi's going around, even up against Gibsons - you can't go wrong with the Casino or Sheraton II.

 

Here is my Epi - the lest expensive guitar I have ever bought, yet one of the best guitars I have ever bought.

Aussie epis seem to be the WORST quality they ship out from what I've heard, but that's not an issue for the TS.

But the dot deluxe, you get gold hardware, flamed top, and I prefer the neck profile on the dot(thicker, but not PRS-unplayable, it feels like a 335).

With MF selling them 200 dollars less than the sheri, you can get new pups or a bisgby, and the headstock inlay isn't something I'd miss.

 

Really, I'd personally take the dot.

Not neccessarily - The Casinos and the Sheratons I have played in Australia have all been quite nice (so I don't buy into the arguement that Australia get the worst load, that is just not true).

I can't be impartial since I have a high end Sheraton and a low end Dot. I like the look and feel of the Sheraton. I don't like the dots on the Dot.

 

you are right , the trapeziums do look better than dots, but if they put those in they might have to call it the epiphone trapezium, and that doesnt sound as cool as dot xD

Epi 'zoid?

Naw, that'd have to be an Explorer back with a SG cutaway, silverburst finish, a floyd rose, MIDI controller, killswitch, and some interesting pup combo, and a firebird headstock.
