The Dove was Gibson's second square-shouldered dreadnought, after the introduction of the Hummingbird in 1960.
First made in 1962, it was based on the Martin D-style dreadnought.
It has a spruce top and engraved pickguard. Maple back and sides instead of the solid mahogany (as on Hummingbird), and a long scale length (25.5").
These make it a louder, brighter guitar than the Hummingbird.
This one was made in 1967 and is in great condition (only few centimeters of the back binding has been replaced because it was damaged).
Original tune o matic bridge has been professionally replaced by a fixed one.
This guitar is a factory second which means it has a 2 digit engraved on the back of the neck as it was considered having a cosmetic default. After a complete inspection we found this cosmetic default which is where the strap pin is attached, where the two sides join together. A place hardly visible when you play and that no one would notice 5.
Comes with a more recent (end 70s, beg 80s) case.
