You Won't Believe What You Get in This Low-priced Guitar

This Epiphone Dove acoustic-electric guitar proves that just because you're getting a low-priced guitar, you don't have to sacrifice elegant looks, comfortable playability, or even great tone! This affordable acoustic-electric guitar has the classic Dove style that's been a Gibson favorite since 1962. What's surprising is the use of a solid spruce top on top of maple back and sides. Plus, it has a hard maple neck with the ultra-comfortable SlimTaper D profile. Considering it also comes equipped with acclaimed Fishman electronics, it's hard to find a guitar in this class that comes close to the value - and style - of the Epiphone Dove acoustic-electric guitar.

Epiphone Dove Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Tonewoods allow tone to enhance over time
  • Fishman electronics are an excellent choice for plugged-in playing
  • Built with classic Dove style
Solid tonewoods allow tone to enhance over time

The Epiphone Dove uses a solid spruce top. You'll hear the difference from your first strum, with rich overtones and harmonics blooming nicely. Even better, these woods enhance in tone as the guitar "breaks in" over the years, making the Dove one instrument you'll want to hold onto for a lifetime.

Fishman electronics are an excellent choice for plugged-in playing

Countless professional guitarists around the world choose Fishman for their acoustic amplification, so you should be happy to see Fishman Sonitone electronics onboard the Dove acoustic-electric. The Sonitone system has volume and tone controls mounted right inside the Dove's soundhole, making it easy for you to adjust your sound.

Built with classic Dove style

Gibson acoustic guitars are often immediately recognizable by their hand-inlayed pickguards, works of art in themselves. You'll find the same classic style on Epiphone's Dove. The imitation tortoise shell pickguard sports the traditional Dove artwork, with pearloid Dove inlays on the rosewood bridge to match.

Epiphone Dove Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • Value-packed acoustic-electric guitar with vintage Dove artwork and premium tonewoods
  • Maple back and sides and solid spruce top provide incredible tone that will enhance with age
  • Grover tuners with 14:1 ratio offer reliable tuning precision and stability
  • Fishman Sonitone electronics are onboard and ready for plugged-in playing
  • SlimTaper D neck profile is a favorite among many players, playing fast and smooth
Unbeatable value in the Epiphone Dove!

I purchased this over a year ago and would buy another in a heartbeat. Excellent in any situation-couch noodling,band gigs,recording studio. I own a Martin and a Gibson and this guitar is knocking on their backdoor,quality-wise. Hard to believe considering the price-point. I have a really sweet Washburn in the same price range,another great purchase from Sweetwater, but it doesn't shine in recording studio like the Dove does. You will not find a better guitar at this price, nor will you find better service than Sweetwater. A perfect 10.


I bought this guitar at Gearfest 2014. I was playing around with Taylors and Gibsons and others alike. I saw tis one hanging on the wall and figured, What the heck... why not and i tried it and was blown away. It has a beautifully bright tone with a punchy low end that sounds like god singing. I was shocked to play it and feel the guitar talking to me. I tried another Taylor right after and actually was disappointed and same with the Martins. Gibson was close but still the sound wasn't quite there. the Fishman pickups were just a pleasant surprise when i read the label and the price tag was incredible. Sweetwater has been my favorite music and audio store for several years now. They never seize to amaze me with Quality and Sevice.

Bought one today

This is one of the best sounding guitars I have ever heard. Went to the music store today planning to buy a mid level taylor/martin or high end yamaha/Seagull acoustic. What I never thought I would do was buy an epiphone. I know that every acoustic is different and not all Dove Pros will sound like this but look around and find one. It is worth it. The best sounding acoustic in the 3 music stores I went to.

got it from sweetwater, awesome,nice action,good sounding acoustic or electric.best buy of the year.no regrets

Best Buy Ever

This is the best buy that I have ever gotten on a guitar. In addition, the representative that was assigned to me was so very helpful. The service you get is certainly the most personal that I have ever recieved. I have told many of my friends to put Sweetwater on their favorites list. Everyone that picks this guitar up and playes it says it is unbelievable and the price knocks it out of the park. Delivery was timely as well.
