Epiphone Dot Archtop

The Epiphone Dot Archtop is a classic amongst guitarists in rock and jazz. With construction modeled after the legendary ES335, the Dot Archtop is a great, affordable way to get the same familiar semi-hollow tone. The Dot shares much in common with the ES335 – from the alnico-magnet humbucker pickups to the set mahogany neck to details like the “Gibson” engraved trussrod cover and stopbar tailpiece.

The Dot Archtop features a classic semi-hollow design and a pair of humbuckers to provide warm, full-bodied sound. For versatility, the Dot also has a 3-position pickup selector, for guitarists to switch between pickup combinations. Its body binding and laminated Maple body looks great in the natural finish – or the Red or Ebony, too. The Dot Archtop has also got a beautiful price, making it a popular second guitar or backup axe. Finally, the Epiphone Dot is covered by Epiphone’s Limited Lifetime Warranty, so you can be sure this guitar will be in it for the long haul.

Epiphone 1962 Wilshire

In cooperation with the Gibson Custom Shop, Epiphone is proud to announce the second in the series of “Epiphone Custom Historic USA” guitars — the 1962 Wilshire Reissue in White. Made in Nashville, Tenn., and limited to only 100 instruments worldwide, it combines impeccable attention to detail and historic accuracy.

Erroneously referred to over the years as “budget models’ and “poor-man’s Gibsons,” the Epiphone electric guitars manufactured at the Gibson factory in Kalamazoo, Mich., between 1959 and the early 1970s have long represented some of the greatest values around in quality American-made vintage instruments. That is, until the world discovered what a clever few guitarists had long understood – that these Epiphone electrics were not only a bargain, but also great playing and sounding guitars as well. That’s when the values of these early Epiphones started to escalate on the vintage market.

First released in 1960 the Wilshire featured two P90 pickups, a 3 on a side headstock and a solid mahogany body and one piece neck. It was designed to compete with the popular Fender Stratocaster in terms of upper fret access, light-weight and playability. It is little surprise given its Kalamazoo origins that this guitar would share many features with its Gibson cousin the Les Paul Jr. However unlike the Les Paul Jr. the 62 Epiphone Wilshire provided two P90 pickups and an intonatable bridge. This arrangement offered an extremely functional and versatile alternative.
