I have no idea how to play a guitar. But even my indiscriminating ear can appreciate the deep, rich voice of a new epiphone dot electric guitar. I took a few minutes to look up what makes this guitar so special and its sound so original. The epiphone guitar has only been manufactured since the 1990s. It is a more affordable alternative to the Gibson ES-335. Terms new to me, it has a semi-hollow body and significant sustain which made it a good singing lead guitar.
