Product Description

Recreating the classic Dove acoustics of the '60s, the Epiphone Dove makes a bold visual statement to compliment its sweet sound. With its comfortable price-point, the Epiphone is a fantastic choice for burgeoning country and folks singers.

Classic Style, Classic Tone

The original Dove dreadnought was released in 1962 along with its famous sister model, the Hummingbird. A key difference is the Dove uses maple instead of mahogany, which produces a warmer and brighter sound. It also uses maple for the neck and body to project shimmering highs with warmth and clarity. The Epiphone Dove has also recaptured the unmistakable look of the vintage original. The curled bridge and saddle beautifully compliment the picturesque pickguard, and the split parallelogram inlays expand the overall vintage vibe of the instrument.

Features:

- One-of-a-kind design with attractive pickguard, bridge, and split parallelogram inlays
- Maple neck and body for a rich, warm tone
- Comfortable rosewood fingerboard on solid set neck
- Solid spruce top for enhanced clarity and projection
- Epiphone limited lifetime warranty with 24/7/365 customer service

4.5 out of 5 (30 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "What a lovely guitar"
Sound: This is a lovely guitar. I have played the big boy Gibson and though it is not quite up to the $4,000 Gibson, it has a rich beautifull tone. I have owned the Epiphone Dove for four years and its sound has opened up and you can't believe this guitar is so inexpensive. I did have a vintage bone nut and saddle installed and the action set to my desire not long after I purchased it. This was a personal choice and not necessary. Feature: The acoustic guitar has all the feature necessary for a life time of enjoyment. I added a Vintage bone nut and saddle. The addition probably improved the tone a litle but the purpose of the upgrade was to give an already fine guitar pofessional features. The hard sheel case is excellent. I did have to purchase the case but the guitar was under $300.00. Are you cheap or what? Just kidding. Ease of Use: The guitar was very playable at purchase but aas guitarist go, I had it professional set up to suite my taste. The guitar plays very well and is easy to fret. Quality: Keep in mind this is a $300 guitar, one tenth the cost of its big brother. The quality of the epiphones are generally excellent and that is true abuot the Dove I purchased.The guitars are made in China but they are inspected by skilled quality control technicians in the U.S.. I know this because mine had an epiphone stamp on the back of the headstock that stated that and provided the control technicians name. Value: Not only is it worth the price but I cannot believe the price is so cheap. This is a n excellent mid level to professional guitar for less than $300.00. Wow, try it you will want it. Manufacturer Support: Epiphone uses the Gibson support section. I have called the Gibson support section once concerning another Epiphone product I own and they were very professional and courteous. The issue was quickly resolved. The Wow Factor: This prduct is cosmetically beautiful. The Dove pickguard, the red stain over very nice maple back and sides, the solid spruce top and pear inlaid bridge. This guitar has a high end look. I would say for the price this is definitely a 10 Overall: I confess, I am a guitar junkie and this is not my first guitar but I absolutetly love to play the Dove. Every time I pick up and play my more expensive guitar, I think of the very fine sound of the Epi Dove. I will keep the Dove for many years. Not only will I keep the guitar I will play it often for many years to come.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great product for the money"
Sound: Nice bright tone. Good sound projection. I have seven guitars and they all have thier own sound. The Epi Dove is a close second to my Martin D-18 that Ive had for the last 16 years. The Martin is more mellow, and the Dove is brighter. The other five guitars that I own do not have the tonal quality Martin or the Dove. Feature: No Accessories. Ease of Use: Action was fine right out of the box. Will eventually use lighter strings. May have to tweak someday, get a little buzz on the Bass E string at times, not bad though. All in all this guitar sounds better than I expected. Quality: Bought as a blemished, There are no dents, scratches, or discoloration. Can not see a problem. Looks fine to me. Value: This is a good sounding guitar and is worth what I paid for it. in fact I would pay more for a guitar with this kind of sound. Manufacturer Support: Have not had to contact them. The Wow Factor: I buy for sound, a good sound will make any guitar more appealling Overall: Because of the sound that I get from this guitar I will keep it. When you get a guitar that sounds alive you should keep it, you may not get that sound from another one.
Style of Music: Bluegrass, gospel, some rock
