Customising my Epiphone Dot

by josho1992 on Fri Feb 13, 2015, 1:01pm

I have an epiphone dot which I rarely play anymore due to the fact that one day in studio it dropped and the neck broke. I've had it repaired by my neighbour who is a joiner to trade so he has fixed it and it sounds just as good as it did new..

Was thinking about painting it.. Was thinking about going for the way Tom has done his guitars the matt finish with the runs of paint on it...but also was thinking of maybe going for something original and unique.

Any ideas guys?

I advised this guy in his thread to...

Get an Epiphone Dot Studio (any color you want)
Get some stickers (for the stripes and either a macbeth logo or the sticker below)
Do some crazy **** on the body (burning and spray painting)
Replace the neck from his sig. guitar (you might have a hard time doing this)

BTW he really uses this sticker. Look

I don't know if you can cover the whole for the neck pickup so I don't think you can 100% imitate Tom's guitar.

Good luck!

Just go for it. Can't wait to see your results. I also customized my dot by burning it a little bit a couple of years ago.

I recently got a new epiphone 339 and made a custom paint finish on it. Absolutely love it. Nothing better then having an individual guitar!
