This little beauty arrived on Friday although, as you'll read in the comments I left on Amazon, I haven't been able to play it much due to a couple of snapped strings, for the time I was able to play I was quite impressed. I had to down size my guitars and gear due to selling a home and living on the road for a year. I only kept my Fender Baja and Seagull Entourage CW. Now that I'm back in a home, I was missing a 335 style guitar so pulled the trigger on a Dot. Amazon comments: The fit and finish of this guitar is very good. The cherry red has a deep lustre that draws the wood grain out to the light. As the title says it plays wonderfully when it plays. Intonation is good, beautiful dark tone with a growl synonymous with semi-hollowbody guitars. Out of the box all I needed to do was tune it...except the high E was broken. Replaced the string and played for an hour or so soaking up those bluesy tones and POP! There goes the B string. So I’ll be replacing the strings with some Ernie Ball Cobalts and grind this axe to a fine sharp edge. The pots are smooth and linear, the switch is rock solid and the input jack accepts your cable of choice with a satisfying clunk. If you’re looking for a high dollar quality 335 style guitar for a low dollar price then this could very well be the guitar for you...just make sure you order a couple of sets of your favorite strings with it.
