Dot! Dot! Dot! Wish I had got!

Recommended Posts

Well, the Mrs. and I headed over to Guitar Center last week to pick up a Yamaha keyboard. REALLY nice!

 

Well, while she was playing it in the store, I went over to check out the Dot. Man, I LOVE that guitar. Sounded and played good. I just bought an SG-310 about a month ago from them and I'm thinking why didn't I get the Dot? So, I'm thinking the Dot would make a great additional practice guitar.

 

So, what do you current/previous owner's think of the Dot? These days I'm doing more funk than hard rock, so tell me what you think...good or bad?

 

Thanks for any info!

Great guitar for the money' date=' needs neck binding though.[/quote']

 

I saw one today on the Swedish Blocket Red cherry for £50.....................I was almost tempted to buy just to give it some love and get fine and give to friend as a great guitar........the guy is selling a 12 string Washburn for the same price.........

Thanx for all the replies.

 

Just so happens my Fender micro-amp (that I've had almost 20 years) died yesterday. So, I guess I'll head over to Guitar Center and pick up a new practice amp.

 

I'll play the Dot some more while I'm there....through whichever amp I get. I really like the "worn" version...just looks groovy!

I'm pretty ignorant in regards to guitar anatomy and physiology. What will neck binding do for the guitar (and presumable the player and tone)?

I have a Samick-made Dot that I put P90s on. Very nice guitar.

 

 

Did you have to carve out more room in the cavity for those P90's to fit?

 

I was contemplating doing the same to my Dot.

I thinks it's just looks, just my two cents....

I am new to the DOT scene, my Grandson has a lefty, after seeing it I had to have one! Found a 2001 Korean, it is the King Kong guitar! I really like it!

$300- well spent!

Great sound through my Deluxe Reverb RI

I have 4 DOTs (ebony, vintage burst, natural, and cherry).

 

I also have 2 DOT Studios (worn cherry and alpine white).

 

I love them all. I can't believe what great guitars they are.

I really wanted one - I was going to get one & put Phat Cats or Dream 90's in it - settled for this instead:

Better pictures to follow. The € fell off the pickguard & I haven't glued it back on yet.
