1989 Gibson Dove, Natural finish over a spruce top, with an antique cherry finish over the maple back and sides. Original case and paperwork included. Exceptionally clean.

Made in the Bozeman plant under the direction of Ren Ferguson, these guitars are considered to be amongst the finest ever built by Gibson. This guitar is in exceptionally good condition and in perfect working order. There are a couple of very tiny marks/dings in the finish but you have to look very closely to spot them.  There are no cracks, repairs, or issues. The neck is straight and the original frets are in excellent condition with very little wear. It's been fully checked over in our workshop and set up with a fresh set of strings and a great action. Nut width:44.35 mm. Depth at 1st fret 22.1 mm. Weight: 5lbs. Serial:83409009.

The Dove was introduced in 1962 as Gibson's second square-shoulder dreadnought after the Hummingbird. The two models are set apart by the Dove's longer scale length as well as its use of Maple instead of Mahogany for its back and sides. The Dove has a scale length of 25.5" whereas the Hummingbirds scale lenght is 24.75. The scale length of the Dove, combined with the use of maple back and sides give more of a balance tonal response with more bass and treble response. It is therefore brighter sounding than an acoustic with Mahogany back and sides ( like the Hummingbird - which tends to have more mid-range )
