    I have an Epi Dot Deluxe that I have been playing with. Gigged with it a few times.I have a Fender Deluxe Reverb and a Blues Jr.I cant believe I am saying this .... , but I prefer the sound of the Dot thru the blues jr.It has that crazy goodness that playing it thru the DRRI doesnt have.So I am curious what you guys play yours thru.

    Mine sounds pretty good thru my '69 Champ.

    I use my Hot Rod Deluxe with it tho for jams or gigs.

    I always thought the 6l6 pairings with humbuckers sounded great.Dig that champ though.

    Yeah, the HRDx w/ the 6l6 tubes sound great with the buckers in the Dot (as well as with my other humbucker-equipped guitars), but to me, this Dot sounds pretty good with my particular Champ, also - with the Champ's Class A tone w/ the 6v6 - However, the Champ does sound better with single coils, this is true..

    I use my Epi Dot with both my amps. Sounds good through both but something about the 'openness' of the guitar really seems to bring out the best from the HT-5. Tele can sound a bit harsh through it, Les Paul has to much low-end and general umph for it but the Dot sounds sublime! :)

    The DOT is a very versatile guitar. Here are my amps:

    It sounds good, but different, through all of them. When I use the Bugera V5, it has a darker, jazzier sound. I need to use the EQ to brighten that amp a bit.

    When I use the Jet City, it has a more rocking sound. I tuned it to open G recently and I was playing the intro to "Can't You Hear Me Knockin'?" and "Brown Sugar."

    I put a Dimarzio Super Distortion in my Dots bridge and a some other Dimarzio in the neck, so its not much of a traditional Dot sound anymore. I also stuffed the f-holes because of the volume I play it. (Heavy Metal/Stoner Rock)

    I know. What kind of a-hole would try to turn a guitar better know for classic rock, blues and jazz into such a beast? Well, I would I guess. It was only a matter of time before I grew some sort of sick fetish towards pushing a guitar not normally accustomed to heavy music, into something people eventually gave me weird looks for. I also play in drop G octave tuning, so I had to start using bass strings.
