The Epiphone Dove Studio features a solid spruce top and maple back and sides, for a bright but focused tone. It's ideal for using live on-stage thanks to the integrated Fishman pickup and preamp. This allows you to plug into any PA system or acoustic amplifier and get the same great natural sound, but amplified!
Epiphone's Dove Studio is a really comfortable guitar to play too, thanks to its 'SlimTaper' D-shaped neck and medium jumbo frets. Get the awesome look of a real Gibson, with a similar feel and tone — all for a reasonable price!
First introduced to guitarists in 1962, this modern recreation provides the same excellent style and sound for current-day audiences. Featuring a stunning Violinburst finish, the attention to detail doesn't just stop at the visuals. A punchy, clear tone is produced thanks to the combination of maple on the back and sides, and spruce on the top. Add to this a hard maple, 25.5-inch scale neck and you've got yourself a smooth, effortless playing experience.
A Fishman Sonitone preamp and Sonicore pickup system ensures that you'll be ready for any live performance. Fishman are one of the most respected brands in the industry, so you can guarantee that your acoustic sound will be brought to life when needed. In-built controls for volume and tone mean that you can even adjust your sound on-the-fly!
