Epiphone

A vintage classic with modern electronics in the Fishman Sonitone and Sonicore System.

The classic Dove-style acoustic first introduced at the legendary Gibson and Epiphone factory in Kalamazoo in 1962 became one of the first acoustic guitars to become a recognized rock-and-roll icon. Now, both beginners and professionals can enjoy the classic sound of The Dove plugged in with the Fishman Sonitone soundhole preamp and Fishman Sonicore pickup system, designed and built with the integrity you expect from Epiphone.

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

  • Select maple back & sides
  • Hard maple neck with SlimTaper "D" profile
  • Rosewood fingerboard and pearloid parallelograms

      Comments about Epiphone Dove Pro Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I've been using this guitar regularly for a year now and I'm still amazed at the quality of the tone, great playability and classic appearance, every time I take it out of the case. I was looking for a good playing and relatively inexpensive acoustic electric to use at an outdoor gig I've done for several summers when I order the Epi Dove Pro last spring. I had looked at several much more expensive guitars that used the same Fishman pick up system and really like their amplified sound. I did not want a pick up that needed a large hole in the side of the guitar to mount the preamp because of the difficult in finding a replacement when they fail. The Fishman with the controls inside the sound hole is ideal for my needs as well as sounding very natural.

      When the guitar arrive my biggest surprise was how fantastic the Epi Dove Pro sounds unplugged. It is loud and very well balance. I was concerned that the maple back and sides might be overly bright, but this is not the case. The tone is robust and works well for either strumming or lead work. I generally prefer guitars with Koa back and side, but IMHO Koa guitars are too expensive to be exposed to the extremes in temp and humidity of a weekly summer gig in the Midwest. Sure the Dove is a litter brighter than say an instrument with solid rosewood back and sides, but nowhere near as bright as a some of the maple Guild or Taylor dreadnoughts I've been around. Full and neutral is the best way to describe the unplugged voice.

      So now I'm entering year two of using this guitar and I'm still in love with it. I routinely get positive comments about its looks and sound. It stays in tune extremely well and is very easy to play I did not have to do any setup after it arrived. Put on new string and start using it. I also like the fact it had a strap button installed on the neck heal, something I wish more acoustic guitar makers would do.

      Are there any negatives to this love story? There are a couple of items, but neither is anywhere near a deal breaker. I've never been crazy about the oversize, historically accurate Epiphone headstock. I'd much prefer it if the Dove used the same more compact headstock design / size found on the Epiphone Les Paul guitars. I also noticed over the very cold winter that the Dove needed more humidification than any of my other acoustics. Maybe because it is the newest and / or because it was played out in the summer heat a lot. It's something I'll keep an eye on next winter.

      Bottom line, I whole heartedly recommend this guitar and would immediately buy another one if it was destroyed or stolen.

                  Very handsome guitar. As I already have too many guitars, I bought this one for its looks & to display on the wall. With minor truss rod adjustment & light gauge strings, it plays very easily & sounds great. It also looks great on display hanging on the wall. I love the pick guard.

                                  Good tone and action. This was a previous owner. Half the pick guard, white Dove impression was apparently rubbed out by previous owner's strum technique, (which may be common generally speaking). Otherwise a nicely manufactured, attractive & playable, good sounding acoustic guitar for the price range.
