Gibson Dove 1995 Natural owned by Billy Corgan Adore

Sorry, this listing is no longer available.

Sold!

This Gibson Dove is from the private collection of Billy Corgan.

This was more of a home guitar for writing for Corgan. It was bought during the Mellon Collie era and was therefore one of the main writing guitars. It was used live, sparingly, through the Adore era.

Because this was used live and handled a lot at Corgan's home for writing, there are numerous superficial scratches in the gloss, and what looks like one non-structural surface crack on the back below the heel. There is a small patch of finish pitting on the pickguard side, and a handful of tiny scuffs on the binding. Overall, pretty clean with nothing major.

This has an onboard pickup and preamp (AccuVoice standard from the factory) with a balanced XLR out in addition to a standard 1/4" jack. The 9V battery for the preamp was just replaced, and the whole system works wonderfully, with a lot of controllable parameters and a notch filter to fight feedback. This is really a do-anything acoustic, with a beautiful worked-in open sound (thanks to Billy's 22 years of playing it) and lots of live capability. Plus, it has the history of being the instrument on which some of the greatest songs of the '90s were written.

This guitar will ship in its original Gibson hardshell case.
