The Gibson Dove:
An Iconic Acoustic Guitar

Introduced in the early '60's the Dove was Gibson's second square-shouldered dreadnought. It was released just two years after the Gibson Hummingbird and featured a maple back and sides as well as a longer scale length to complement the mahogany back and sides and the shorter scale length of the Hummingbird. 

"It’s maple back and sides and long scale produce the crisp, clear tone and projection while the square shoulder body adds balance and warmth. The hand-craftedpick guard, with a single mother-of-pearl dove among painted flowers, make this guitar instantly recognizable."-Gibson Guitars

As of recent years, the Dove has only been available as limited edition model, but for 2017, Gibson has decided to make the Dove a standard model.

An Acoustic Guitar that looks as good as it sounds. 

Just as it's 1960's counterpart, the 2017 Dove features a flamed maple back and sides a Sitka spruce top and a rosewood fingerboard to give you an even rich tone that is sure to please.

To complement these tonewoods, the Dove has high-end esthetics, including trapezoid fretboard inlays and the iconic Dove pick guard. This guitar is easy to spot from across the room!

Not only does the Dove look good it sounds great plugged in, being equipped with an LR Baggs VTC pickup. The LR Baggs VTC offers accurate tonal reproduction and is trusted by musicians across the globe.
