From the manufacturer
Dove Studio -Violinburst
The Dove acoustic was first introduced at the legendary Gibson & Epiphone factory in Kalamazoo in 1962 and became one of the acoustic guitars to become a recognized rock and roll classic. Now, both beginners and professionals can enjoy the classic sound of the Dove acoustically, or plugged in with the onboard Fishman electronics.
Epiphone is one of American’s oldest and revered instrument makers. Since 1873, Epiphone has made instruments for every style of popular music and in 2013 will celebrate its 140th anniversary. The story behind Epiphone’s improbable rise from a small family repair shop to a worldwide in the manufacture of quality instruments could easily be transformed into the great American novel.
The name Epiphone evokes both history and the spirit of invention. The “House of Stathopoulo” has played a central role in every great musical era from the mandolin craze of the early 1900s to jazz age guitars of the 1920s; from swing era archtops through post-war pop, jazz, r&b, and early rock n’ roll; and from the “British Invasion” to heavy metal, punk, grunge, and thrash.
