1968 Gibson Dove


In stock

Natural, Solid Sitka Spruce over solid flamed maple back and sides. They only shipped 418 of these top-of-the-line Gibson flat tops and have proven to be one of the most recorded acoustics. Elvis played Doves, the Stones, Tom Petty and more. Why? Because they have a presence and a projection. The Tuneomatic bridge keeps it in tune. Pete Townshend raves about TOM bridge for recording.

This guitar is ready, good action, original Grovers and bridge. However, a small hole now filled in the top shoulder for a jack (odd placement). Also, part of the pickguard is replaced. Shows light finish checking and pick wear. Has a 1 9/16” nut width. Brazilian fretboard and bridge, nice flattop. Seven layers of top binding, bound neck, double parallelogram inlays, five layers of binding on back. Deluxe trim and deluxe tone, big full with that crisp maple and big boom. Comes with the original hard case missing handle.
