'The Gibson Elvis Dove is based on a customised 1969 Gibson Dove that was gifted to the King of Rock and Roll by his father, Vernon Presley, and that Elvis played in concert regularly from 1971 until 1975, including during the 1973 satellite-televised Aloha From Hawaii concert. In 1975, Elvis gifted it in mid-performance to an astonished audience member at a concert in Asheville, North Carolina.
The Gibson Elvis Dove features a solid Sitka spruce top, solid maple back and sides, and a mahogany neck capped with a rosewood fretboard. It also comes equipped with modern LR Baggs VTC electronics with an under-saddle piezo pickup and soundhole-mounted volume and tone controls, making it stage-ready, right out of the included hardshell case.'
Talk about a class act - this Gibson Elvis Dove is a stunning bit of kit with a beautifully balanced, rounded and warm voice. It is such an inspiring instrument to play and near impossible to put down once you get rolling. The crew at Gibson have nailed it with this special guitar - the classic dove inlay on the bridge, double parallelogram inlay in the rosewood fretboard, the gold keystone waffleback tuners and the ebony finish against the black pickguard make this guitar a sight to behold.
The guitar is basically brand new, being played by its current owner a handful of times in a studio setting. As a result, there isn't a mark on it and presents as an incredible opportunity to land a top-of-the-line Gibson for a great price. Make a move as this won't last long!
