2023 Gibson Dove Original Antique Natural w/ LR Baggs VTC Pickup, Case & Hangtags

$3,799.99

+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2023 Gibson Dove Original in like-new condition, complete with the original hardshell case, hangtags, and case candy. This square shoulder dreadnought has all the appointments of a top tier Gibson, capturing the finer points of the Dove's introductory feature set.

Tonewoods include a Sitka spruce top with scalloped X bracing, flame maple back and sides, a one-piece mahogany neck, and a bound rosewood fingerboard. This Dove is bright and full-sounding with great projection, kicking like a mule when digging in with a flatpick yet also yielding delicate sparkling tones with the exquisite articulation afforded the tonewood complement. The wound strings have a brassy growl, and the overarching sound yields plenty of woody chop. The factory-installed L.R. Baggs VTC pickup ensures additional flexibility for live use. Weighing 5lbs 1oz, this Dove has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 11-52 bronze strings and easy-playing action.

The Antique Natural finish is exceedingly clean, and the guitar is ostensibly like-new. The Cherry Red finish on the back and rims highlights the tight, consistent flame figuring in the maple, particularly prominent on the rims. The gloss on the neck profile is similarly flawless.

The original brown tolex hardshell case with pink plush interior is included, along with the  hangtags and case candy.
