Was a little hesitant to order a guitar I have not played or heard. After reading all the specifications (which seemed to fulfill the needs I was looking for) I decided to order the guitar. I am a 73 year old man who has played guitar since I was 9 years old. Over the years I have owned many guitars Rickenbacker, Guild, Taylor, Martin, and many others. I play praise and worship, modern gospel and country gospel so was looking for a good acoustic/electric guitar. Upon receiving the Epiphone Dove guitar I was very satisfied with it's form and fit everything was in excellent condition. The dove is a very attractive guitar all features exceeded my expectations. Acoustically the sound is better than expected for a guitar in this price range and as good if not better than some of the more expensive guitars I have played over the years. Amplified the dove sounds fantastic crisp and clear with a satisfying range treble too bass. Playing this guitar is a pleasure a good feel. As I had done to every guitar I've owned I did drop the action down just a wee bit for my ease of play. Our Lord willing I look forward to playing this guitar for a few more good years. It is one of the nicest guitars I've owned/played.

Quality is slipping at Epiphone/Gibson

neck has so much flex at the body it's hard to keep in tune and keep getting string buzz no matter how the neck is set.

Amazing Guitar!

By MADDY AGERS

from St. Louis, MO

Comments about Epiphone Dove Pro Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

The first time I laid eyes on the Dove Pro, I stopped scrolling and sat there with my mouth gaping open.. it was love at first sight. Magical, really. I knew I wanted it, so I saved up for a few months and bought it just a couple weeks ago. These pictures don't even begin to show you its beauty. I mean, I still can't believe it's mine. The Vintage Burst is SO beautiful, and the details are perfect. It sounds great with an amp, and it sounds just as good without. It's such an honor to have my dream guitar. If you're considering buying this one, get it. You won't be sorry! Maddy

Comments about Epiphone Dove Pro Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

When I saw this Thanksgiving Day last year, I wanted it so bad. I read the reviews, and the one that stuck out was Ed Huber's. I rolled the dice, ordered it (and the Epiphone EL-00 hardshell case to go with it) and couldn't be happier!! Yes, I would like the Gibson version like Frank Hannon's, but I'm not paying $2500 for a 1970's "good condition" one. Anyway, this thing plays and sounds beyond beautiful. Every time I pull it out at church to play, our worship leader looks at it and says, "Boy howdy, that's a beautiful guitar!" Thanks, Mike! So, everything arrived perfect, picked it up after work, had Ed (the tech at my Guitar Center in Avondale) look it over. He said, "There's nothing to do to it, unless you WANT to change the nut out for a bone one." Still thinking about that. 2 weeks after I got it I was in a Guitar Center and just for giggles played a $2500 Gibson and a $3100 Martin. I like my Epiphone Dove PRO better, both in feel and sound!! Play some Tesla, play some Pink Floyd, wow yourself and everyone else. Like I said, the only draw back is the placement of the battery...what were they thinking? It's directly under the 19 and 20th fret. When you change strings, don't forget to change the battery. OH, the electronics! I have a Fishman Loudbox Mini, WOW the Dove PRO sounds absolutely phenomenal through it!! Doesn't matter if you're playing Bluegrass, Gospel, Tesla or Pink Floyd, this guitar will shock you with how good it plays and sounds. Thank you Frank Hannon for turning me onto the Dove, even if mine is an Epiphone!

    Comments about Epiphone Dove Pro Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

    I knew what I wanted in an acoustic but was reluctant to buy one online without trying it out first. I read the reviews on the Dove Pro and decided I would go ahead and risk it, after all, if I didn't like it I could always send it back. Right out the box it was perfect. It needed no setting up, finish was perfect, and sound is fantastic! I have had expensive Takamines, Ovations, and some others and this ranks right up there with more expensive brands. I love it!

              Comments about Epiphone Dove Pro Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

              I mainly play for my own enjoyment these days or small gatherings and venues. This instrument makes playing a joy and is eye candy to boot. I had a Dove back in the 70's that was lost to an unfortunate incident in Las Vegas years later. One of the best and sweetest playing guitars I've ever owned and in over 50 years of playing I've owned a few good guitars. I ordered this puppy 4 years ago through Guitar Center in Greenwood, IN and when she came in I was astounded by the fit and finish and the stunning looks even though I really wanted a Blonde. The first time I strummed "Vinnie" I was hooked. And now 4 years later she's breaking in quite nicely and the sound and fretting is only getting sweeter by the day. I love my Martin but the Dove has a voice all its own an you can tell the difference between both now seasoned guitars. Didn't break the bank and a good inexpensive hard shell to put her to bed in have made me a very happy guitar player all for under four bills. I HIGHLY recommend this instrument for a novice or seasoned player looking for an inexpensive well built and awesome playing axe. Try one. You will be surprised.
