There's Nothing Quite Like a Dove

Definitely one of the more stunning-looking acoustic-electrics in Sweetwater's Guitar Gallery, the limited-edition Gibson Acoustic Dove VCS gives you the iconic dove on its pickguard as well as two doves inlaid on its distinctly-shaped bridge. Gibson designed the Dove to deliver much more than just looks, however - this gorgeous all-solid-wood guitar's Sitka spruce top and maple back and sides join forces with its longer scale length to delivers prodigious volume and a smooth, crisp sound that's perfect for backing vocals. Plug in onstage, and the onboard L.R. Baggs electronics serve up that same wonderful tone. The Gibson Acoustic Dove VCS: there's nothing like it.

Gibson Acoustic Dove VCS Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Own an impeccable reissue of a classic masterpiece
  • Amazing tonewood selection looks and sounds beautiful
  • LR Baggs Element VTC electronics deliver incredible amplified sound
Own an impeccable reissue of a classic masterpiece

Inspired by the original Dove from the 1960s, the Gibson Acoustic Dove VCS is an impeccable limited-edition reissue of the classic guitar. The rosewood fingerboard is adorned with classic parallelogram inlays and both pickguard and bridge sport the classic dove design touches. An appropriately stunning design for a workhorse instrument. Naturally, this guitar wears a luscious nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Nitro finishes - standard back in the day - are significantly thinner than today's polyurethane finishes, allowing the instrument to "breathe." Nitro finishes not only look authentically vintage - they also enhance the instrument's tonal qualities.

Amazing tonewood selection looks and sounds beautiful

The Gibson Acoustic Dove VCS acoustic-electric guitar has a beautiful body and voice, thanks to its top-notch tonewood combination. The solid maple back and sides are topped with solid Sitka spruce; beautiful no doubt, but also harmonically rich with an impressively dynamic response. Like all Gibson Acoustic guitars, the Dove VCS is handcrafted by the company's ace luthiers in their Bozeman, Montana, custom shop. Factor in the alluring rosewood fingerboard and dual-dove-adorned belly-up bridge, and you're holding the stuff that guitarists' dreams are made of.

LR Baggs Element VTC electronics deliver incredible amplified sound

The Dove VCS comes with LR Baggs's popular Element VTC Active Acoustic Pickup System, which features a low-profile undersaddle transducer that's proven more stable and durable than many standard ribbon-type pickups. Combined with an onboard preamplifier with an unobtrusive and removable volume control, mounted just inside the soundhole, the Element VTC is a tremendous performer. Its sleek and effective design removes unnecessary internal components to enhance the coupling between the pickup and the guitar and improve the sensitivity of the transducer for a robust, lively, and natural acoustic sound with excellent dynamics and delicate high end. The Element VTC works with a standard 9V battery, which is housed inside the guitar in LR Baggs's new "Battery Bagg."
