The Gibson Elvis Dove is based on a customized 1969 Gibson Dove that was gifted to the King of Rock and Roll by his father, Vernon Presley, and that Elvis played in concert regularly from 1971 until 1975, including during the 1973 satellite-televised Aloha From Hawaii concert. In 1975, Elvis gifted it in mid-performance to an astonished audience member at a concert in Asheville, North Carolina. The Gibson Elvis Dove features a solid Sitka spruce top, solid maple back and sides, and a mahogany neck capped with a rosewood fretboard. It also comes equipped with modern LR Baggs VTC electronics with an under-saddle piezo pickup and soundhole-mounted volume and tone controls, making it stage-ready.
Comes with a Hardshell case.
