This famous flame maple-backed square shoulder introduced in the early '60s is intertwined with one of the most revolutionary decades in popular music history. The Gibson Dove Original's maple back and sides and long scale produce the crisp, clear tone and projection, while the square shoulder body adds balance and warmth. Classic Dove details include bone nut and saddle, double antiqued multi-ply binding, nickel Grover keystone tuners, a traditional Dove truss rod cover and a cherished pickguard featuring an inlaid mother-of-pearl Dove with hand-engraved and painted detailing.
