With the original Dove being released back in 1962; the new Epiphone Dove Pro Electro Acoustic Guitar comes from a strong lineage. Now equipped with the Fishman Sonitone and Sonicore System, the rock and roll icon can hold its own alongside drums and electric guitars, while unplugged it is still more than capable of fronting an acoustic band.
Classic Dove sound is offered by the Epiphone Dove Pro’s combination of a solid spruce top, noted for a richness that improves as it is played in and as it ages, and select maple back & sides with an offering of a bright, punchy tone. The top has been finished with a warm, vintage-looking Violinburst and a 5-ply white and black binding, while the back of the body is kept simple with a single-ply white binding. The Epiphone Dove Pro Electro Acoustic also features the classic “Dove” tortoise shell style pickguard.
Joined to the body of the Epiphone Dove Pro with a dovetail joint, and glued-in with Titebond glue, is a hard maple neck shaped to the SlimTaper "D" profile. Between the 1.68” nut and carved rosewood bridge, with its pearloid dove inlays and compensated imitation bone saddle, is a 12” radius, 20 medium-fret rosewood fingerboard with pearloid parallelogram inlays and a singly-ply white binding. The guitar has also been kitted out with Grover 14:1 tuners and nickel strap buttons.
Ensuring the natural tone of the Epiphone Dove Pro Electro Acoustic Guitar is still communicated when amplified, Epiphone enlisted the help of pickup industry leaders, Fishman.
With the Fishman Sonicore equipped under the saddle and the Sonitone preamp discreetly mounted in the soundhole, the guitar offers the same acoustic tone its known for even when plugged in, without spoiling the aesthetics of the guitar. Although in the soundhole, the preamp is easily accessible and offers Master Volume and Tone controls and will typically last up to 100 hours with one 9-volt battery.
