Nice find Bluesking! That’s a beautiful guitar. It has nice mojo. I also have a 2005 Dove. Mine has a natural top but otherwise pretty much like yours - same red back and sides and the two stripes on the neck. I’m sure you’re going to love it.

Yes, thanks, it is a great find.

AND it has a full Baggs Anthem pickup installed, which suits the guitar sound very nicely!

Sweet looking Gibson! I have a J45 and Songwriter and always wanted to try a Dove to see the difference.

My favorite guitar. The cherry finish is beautiful. I don't play guitars that size anymore, but the Doves I've played are so lush sounding.
