For sale we have a vintage 1968 Gibson Dove in cherry burst. This great example has some of the best looking finish checking we have ever encountered!

The ‘68 Gibson Dove is a vintage classic and one of the prettiest guitars Gibson ever made. It’s defining features are solid spruce/flamed maple construction, pearl inflated mustache bridge, double parallelogram fretboard inlays, and of course the famous dove pickguard.

We determined the year by the serial number as well as certain features like the tune-o-magic bridge (discontinued after ‘69/70), narrower Neck, and screws in the pickguard.

This guitar is listed in good condition as it is structurally and cosmetically a beautiful vintage example compared to other guitars of the same year and model. The finish is checked but still firmly attached and still brilliant and shiny. The frets have good life left and all the hardware works. The neck is well worn in the first position but still comfortable. The patina definitely tells a story of where this guitar has been. The saddles have been replaced with quality Tusq pieces and the guitar plays and sounds great! The cons are a lifting bridge at the corners (these bridges are both glued and reinforced with bolts) and an input jack that was installed at one point but isn’t attached to anything.

This sale includes the original hard shell case.
