Epiphone Dove Studio Solid Top Acoustic-Electric Guitar

Go pro with this classic Dove acoustic-electric. Equipped with the Fishman Sonitone preamp and Sonicore pickup system, this Epiphone is ready for the stage.

Half a century after Gibson and Epiphone introduced the iconic Dove-styled acoustic, Epiphone brings you the Dove Studio acoustic-electric guitar, complete with a clear and articulate Fishman Sonitone preamp system. An under-saddle Sonicore pickup captures the warm resonance of this Dove's spruce and maple body, and a comfortable hard maple neck in a slim taper "D" profile spans 22 medium frets over a silky smooth fingerboard. An attractive dove and flowers design decorates the pickguard, and shiny nickel hardware adds security and visual flair to the mix. If you're interested in electrifying your acoustic sound -- and want something with a little visual pizzazz to spice up your performance -- the Epiphone Dove Studio is a fantastic choice.

Solid Spruce Top and Select Maple Back and Sides

Get your ears ready for some spruce and maple tone. Solid spruce is a overwhelmingly popular wood for the tops of acoustic guitars. When paired with maple, each strum yields a punchy reverberation with a pleasant low end and plenty of high-end crispness to slice through the mix on those aggressive strums. Spruce also tends to age well, so the more you play this guitar, the better it'll sound.

Slim Taper "D" Hard Maple Neck and Pau Ferro Fretboard

The Dove Studio's pau ferro fretboard features an attractive single-ply white binding, and spans 20 frets with intriguing pearloid parallelogram inlays stylized in a way you don't really see on many guitars. The slim taper "D" profile is a read more cozy fit for your hand, and each fret harnesses a comfortable action for your fingers to enjoy.

Decorative "Dove" Looks

This guitar steals eyes just as well as it steals ears. The Dove Studio's mesmerizing spruce top boasts an attractive black and white binding and a linear grain pattern that contrasts nicely against the dark-colored bridge. The bridge sports a tasteful pair of dove-shaped pearloid inlays. The illustrious pickguard features an elegant dove and flowers design that simply cannot be ignored. With this acoustic-electric strapped over you're your shoulder, people will enjoy watching you play just as much as hearing it.

Clear and Articulate Fishman Electronics

All of the resonance and warmth from your Dove Studio's spruce and maple body is captured and electrified by this guitar's pristine Fishman electronics. A Fishman Sonicore pickup hidden under the saddle captures each sonic element of your performance and forges it into a signal ready to be amplified into the room. The discretely mounted rotary volume and tone controls are easy to get at, so you can make adjustments on the fly if you need to do any last-minute tweaking. The battery life on your active Sonitone preamp typically lasts up to 100 hours.

Unplugged, the Epiphone Dove Studio can easily drive an acoustic band. But plugged in, The Dove Studio can hold its own with drums and electric guitars.

Select Spruce Top

The pau ferro fingerboard has singly ply white binding and features a 12" radius with 20 medium frets, a 1.68" nut, and pearloid parallelogram inlays. The bridge has pearloid dove inlays just like vintage models. The saddle is compensated and is made from imitation bone. The classic "Dove" tortoise shell style pickguard is easy to spot on stage and is one of The Dove's most famous features.

Like others I have been through a lot of guitars. This Epiphone is really beautiful to look at and yes the finish has an orange burst to it. It came straight out of the box in tune- one string slight off. I’ve never had that happen. Feels great in your hands and feels well made. Sounds great and would recommend it wholeheartedly.
Sounds wonderful. Might try different strings later on.
