Found 13th Jul 2015
Picked up an Epiphone Dot 335 from Dawsons in Leeds yesterday as I am starting lessons in the next week or so and I have always fancied one of these guitars. The sale ticket had a reduced price and when I enquired as to why the member of staff said they are currently reducing all Epiphone arch top guitars by 15%. I checked online and this deal is also available through the Dawsons website with free shipping. Looked at a lot of guitars but this seemed like a good deal for a first guitar to learn on?

Save yer money by buying a Used Yamaha Pacifica on Gumtree. Got mine for 50 quid.

He's right but this is a good deal if you insist on en epiphone. Yamaha Pacifica new for £150 odd on Amazon will be your best bet under £300

Think this deal is on in every guitar shop who are epiphone dealers, not just dawsons.
IMHO Yamaha pacific as are really not up to much. Why buy second hand junk, when you can have your very own brand new guitar? Just my opinion

There are many more people who start out wanting to play then giving up. They end up selling a little 'used' guitar for peanuts. Until you have got to a certain level dont waste yer money on a shinny new guitar...no wait do that so the rest of us can pick up another bargain, As for comment Yamaha not being up to much as Judge Rinder would say.."That's Stupid".

Saying Pacifica isn't up to much shows your lack of knowledge, ability or experience.

As a guitar teacher I can guarantee anybody reading this thread that you will not find a better sub £200 guitar than a Pacifica for playability, sound quality, build quality all combined in a performance per pound analysis.

Looks are personal but the guitar is a genuine diamond. I don't own one as I use PRS electrics as have a mind that allows non Gibson/fenders to be tried and experienced.

My acoustic is a Taylor Ltd edition fall 2011 koa guitar

Amp is a Hughes and Kettner grandmeister 3

36 that should've said not 3

Haha. Enough said.

I won't bother going through my list of gear either, was only giving my opinion. Take it easy ladies.

I agree, the discount is from Epiphone so every dealer should be offering it, and while the pacifica is a good starter guitar, the Epiphone will not need to be upgraded when you become more advanced, and will hold its value better if you sell it later

Or more likely loose a lot more money when you sell to cash convertors for next to nothing!
Stick to a solid body as a 1st guitar?

Thought The deal is on arch tops?

I don't think it matters if it is solid or hollow body, as long as you find it comfortable to play

At the end of the day it's up to the individual as how much they want to spend. If, as many they decide the guitar is not for them this perticular guitar will be hard to shift and definately sell for way less than new price. If they dont want to take advice then that's fine. Maybe we'll see them on Guitar Star but I doubt it?

I agree that it is the individuals choice and budget constraints that dictate that choice, but with the budget available the OP has made a good choice IMHO, and you will never struggle to sell a quality instument like an Epiphone for a decent price, and with a better quality guitar to start with, you will not be looking to upgrade it so soon when you do progress.

Axes down guys, nothing like bedrocker aficionados, read some reviews, watched some experts on YT and think they know it all.

Music is about FUN

This does remind me of a story in Guitarist magazine. Some guy had saved up for many years to finally buy a beautiful 2 grand PRS superstrat. While admiring it when he finally got it home he thought to himself..."I wish I'd learned to play the guitar before I bought this!"

Boasting about what gear you've bought doesn't prove your experience as a good guitarist - only an unhealthy attitude. I think it would be more just to say: "buy whatever guitar you want, as long as it aspires you to play." My relationship with my Pacifica 012 hasn't been great as my personal feeling towards the guitar is that it's a little boring and a little ugly, which did damaged my interest when starting to play.
