Gibson / Dove / 1968 / Natural / Guitar
60's Gibson Dove's are becoming more of a rarity these days, and this guitar is a great example of one of Gibson's most famous acoustics. With it's Spruce top and highly flamed Maple back and sides, it has a real bite in the mid-range, sparkling trebles, as well as great bass response, making it a very versatile guitar - just as comfortable with delicate fingerstyle right through to heavy strumming. The iconic dove inlaid scratchplate and bridge make it a unique model, and the multiple bound top and back, crown inlay on the peghead and split parallelogram fingerboard inlays are indications of it's deluxe quality - it also features very desirable waffle back tuners. For a 44 year old guitar it's in excellent condition, with only moderate playwear, and no cracks or repairs, and the neck is very comfortable making it a joy to play. it comes it it's original hard case.
Glenns Guitars, UK
Welcome to Glenn's Guitars here on Vintage & Rare. After many years in the industry, and having been fortunate enough to have worked in Hanks and The Acoustic Centre - probably London's two foremost acoustic guitar shops - I decided to do my own thing.
I have a passion for used and vintage acoustic guitars; nearly new second hand guitars because they can represent a bargain compared to the price of a new guitar, older and vintage guitars because they tend to have more character and can often become an investment.
You will notice when viewing my stock list my taste in guitars, as I only sell guitars that I genuinely like - and there are certain brands noticeable by their absence. I am a huge fan of older Gibson, Martin and Guild acoustics, but also more boutique brands such as Lowden and Collings.
I will consider part exchange if it makes your desired guitar a little easier to afford. I also offer a guitar finding service, if there's something specific you're looking for.
If you are happy to buy over the internet, I will send you as many high resolution photos and as much information about the guitar you're interested in as I can. If you can get to me - I'm based in Enfield, only 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station - you can always make an appointment with me and come and try some of the guitars out first.
I accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer, cheque and of course cash.
