Anonymous review via Feefo | Purchase date: 27 December 2013
bought this for our son for xmas and he's over the moon withit, although he wanted the worn cherry colour,which i tried to pursue worldwide and i mean worldwide,andertons assured us that they would extend the refund policy to after christmas, so that if our son didn't like the gloss cherry colour they would collect the guitar free of charge and refund all monies in full, you can't argue with that can you, fortunateky he was overjoyed with the guitar

The guitar is gorgeous! Really pleased with it. I am new to playing but serious so wanted a reasonably priced guitar that I loved so it would maintain my enthusiasm for learning, and it has! The cherry colour is beautiful, very eye-catching. It looks very similar to a Gibson but is waaaay cheaper. Recomended.

The Dot is a beautifully constructed guitar. The body shows a lovely grain through an excellent cherry lacquer. The neck is like an old Gibson (rather round) and the frets have an old Gibson feel.
The guitar plays well and sounds good.
I was concerned to have only two tone/volume controls, rather than the usual four but in practice this is not a problem - possibly an advantage - less opportunity to miss-set!
There is not much by way of embellishment - the guitar has a ready-for-work look to it but there is no hint of cheapness.
This guitar is another 'keeper' for me.

Sometimes simpler is better. No fuss, no frills, just a gorgeous looking cherry red guitar that looks like it costs far more and sounds like it too.

For the money, these are an incredibly good buy - the body & neck are basically a standard epi dot, less a couple of controls, inlays & pickguard.
The one I received had a remarkably straight neck & requires very little truss rod tension to straighten under a set of 10-46's (I ended up refretting this instrument & inlaying it, it now does this under barely any tension whatsoever)
The original fretwork was by no means level (scarcely any guitars are, lets face it) but the ends were not lifted & all issues could be resolved with a standard fret dress by your local tech/luthier.
The jack socket was poorly drilled (fair bit of blowout/chipout) but i'd recommend replacing it for a long thread switchcraft jack anyway (purely so you can fit a lock washer to it - the things come loose so frequently & mine was on arrival)
To be honest, the only major fault with the guitar (that I wouldnt expect from most) is that the bridge saddles were not even close to a 12" radius & required so much filing, I just replaced the bridge entirely.
All in all, a brilliant buy - take one to your local tech/luthier & have a fret dress/setup - chuck a new long thread jack on it & you're laughing.
