Offered is this semi-hollow Dotmaster electric by Johan Gustavsson of Sweden. Johan introduced this model to serve as his version of an ES type guitar, but as anyone who has ever played a Gustavsson will tell you, this incredible instrument is so, so much more.

The Dotmaster is a short scale, Les Paul-sized semi-hollow instrument with a korina body, a mahogany neck and a one-piece big leaf maple top. Some folks will likely say that the korina imparts a slightly different tone than Mahogany, but Johan says he uses these tonewoods on this model primarily to make the Dotmaster as light as possible - this example weighs just 6.6 pounds and is perfectly balanced. The neck is a round C-shape with depth measurements of .92" at the first increasing to 1.01" at the twelfth. The dark, Ebony-like fretboard is made of Brazilian rosewood.

If you love the tone of a Collings I-35 or a Gibson ES series, then you will adore the sound of this instrument equipped as it is with ThroBak humbuckers. If you love the thick tone of a Les Paul, but can't deal with the weight, you are also likely to adore this guitar. Please check out the brief sound sample below. The tone can be smooth for jazz, or as crunchy as any Les Paul when driven.

Few guitars approach the build quality, feel and tone of a Gustavsson instrument and I would argue that his semi-hollow guitars are even better than his incredible solid body models. As good as it sounds, there aren’t many guitars at any price that are better players than a Gustavsson properly setup to your personal preferences!

This lightly-played 2022 model is in near mint condition with no flaws of any significance. The frets look like new. It comes in its similarly mint JG-branded G&G premium case along with the certificate of authenticity and the other original accessories.

This is easily one of the finest semi-hollow instruments available on planet Earth. An amazing instrument; make it yours.​
