Gibson Dove Natural 1965
Based on a Martin D-style dreadnought, the Gibson Dove was introduced in 1962. It was Gibson’s second square shouldered acoustic behind the Hummingbird in 1960.
Not too many of these have survived the last 60 years due to the light bracing Gibson used at this time and this one is ready for a new home. All of the stand-out features of this model are intact, the handmade pickguard illustrating a mother-of-pearl dove and the pair of doves inlaid and engraved on the bridge.
The Dove was Gibson’s premier dreadnought flat top of the 1960s, second only in price to the J-200 and $100 more expensive than a Hummingbird. Like the J-200, the back and sides are maple, and combined with a 25.5” scale length there is plenty of brightness and volume.
The maple back is highly figured with no buckle rash and given the age of the guitar it is in very good shape. However, the top shows it's love so please pay close attention to the pictures.
