Gibson Dove Original-Vintage Cherry Sunburst-2020 w/HSC

$ 3599.00

This famous flame maple-backed square-shoulder introduced in the early 60s is intertwined with one of the most revolutionary decades in popular music history. Its maple back and sides and long scale produce crisp, clear tone and projection, while the square-shoulder body adds balance and warmth. Classic Dove™ details include a bone nut and saddle, double antiqued multi-ply binding, nickel Grover® Keystone tuners, a traditional Dove truss rod cover, and a cherished pickguard featuring an inlaid mother-of-pearl Dove with hand-engraved and painted detailing.  Included are a LR Baggs VTC under saddle pickup, with soundhole mounted volume and tone controls,  and a 1/4″ endpin jack.  A deluxe Gibson hardshell case accompanies the instrument.

This Dove was purchased in October 2020, and I am selling it for my client on consignment.  The guitar is in mint condition and looks  like it left the factory yesterday.  The neck is straight, the guitar plays like a dream, and the sound is superb.  Here are some basic specs:
