Yeah, that's what I didn't understand as well. It's basically an over priced dot with a bigsby. A Sheraton with Gibson pick ups and a Digi Tech Whammy would be something similar in price and would sound an awful lot better...

Thats great that its still a dot, I want it to be. I like my Dot it sounds really good. No it's not a Gibson ES355 but thats because I can't afford one. I mentioned about the Gibson pickups they were $130 each plus tax but i'm not trying to make a Gibson just a 355 styled Dot.

It does look similar to a Dot or Gibson 335 however it has some differences, the main one being the All Gold Bigsby B7 Vibrato seen at the bottom of the guitar. This Bigsby is preinstalled during the making of this guitar in place of the bottom part of the bridge therefore not leaving holes in the guitar. There is also differences to the

-Headstock Inlay Design
-Fret Inlays
-Selector Switch (allows for different tones I believe)
-All Gold Hardware
-Vintage Gibson Pickgurd
-Minor difference on the body inlay
