Here's what Epiphone say about the Dot Royale
The Epiphone Dot Goes Uptown with the Dot Royale. The Epiphone Dot was introduced over ten years ago, and since then, Epiphone's version of the venerable Gibson ES-335 "Dot" has been wowing guitar players all over the world. Now, the DotRoyale gives the ES-335 Dot tradition a whole new makeover with a stunning pearl white finish,gold sparkle binding and gold hardware totally unlike anything Epiphone has offered before. Though Epiphone was long famous for its own original semi-hollowbody models from the 1960's Kalamazoo, Michigan era, including the Riviera and Sheraton, the simple, classic ES-335 style was missing, especially among the more affordable models. The introduction of the Epiphone Dot - called that in reference to it's simple "dot" fingerboard inlays - opened up the availability of the sustain and resonance of the semi-hollow design for a bounty less than most solid body guitars. Now with the Dot Royale, that classic sound has an all new look.
Semi-hollow Design, Solid Craftsmanship
The Dot Royale is constructed of premium laminated Maple including a Mahogany center block and a hand-fitted, glued-in Mahogany neck. Other details include a Rosewood fingerboard with traditional "Dot" inlay, quality electronic parts including full-size, 1" 500K Ohm potentiometers, Epiphone's all-metal pickup selector switch, historic metal Epiphone name "badge" on the headstock, and heavy-duty output jack. Its fabulous semi-hollowbody sound is voiced by a pair of real Alnico Classic Humbucker pickups. The pearl white finish and gold sparkle binding are complimented by a one-of-a-kind Epiphone gold pickguard. The Royale Dot sports gold hardware including premium 16:1 ratio Grover machine heads for superior tuning stability and accuracy. Also included as standard equipment on the Dot Royale is Epiphone's exclusive LockTone locking Tune-o-matic bridge and Stopbar tailpiece which yields even more sustain.
