"Submitted for your approval" as Rod Serling used to say. This stunning 1965 Gibson Dove with the most amazing flamed maple back. This guitar has a TON of voice and sounds like a Beatles guitar all the way! This Dove comes with the original hard shell case and is 100 % straight with action and a neck that is so right on that you can lower it down to the board and it still won't buzz! Plus how cool is it to have a Tune-O-Matic to dial in an acoustic!! Though usually you do not see Grover Roto-matics until 1968 these are DEFINITELY orig and it is also most def a 1965 with the later 65 neck profile. The serial number is NOT one of those that could be 65, 66 and 68 as we see in many cases. It is 5015XX and until the 70s never repeats and then only w/ the Made in USA stamp. I cannot say enough about how beautiful this example is w/ only a little honest play wear around the sound hole but just a little and a few small dings and NO repairs or cracks ever. Overall a solid 8-8.5 The pix do NOT do the beauty of the maple justice!! Check out the orig case too!

Pay Pal, Cash, Personal Check, Money Order/Cashier's check, Wire transfers or Western Union. Pay Pal and wire transfers are offered as a convenience for far away buyers and all extra expenses are the customer's responsibilty. Unless i price my guitars up with some of the really big dealers theres not enough profit in Vintage guitars to pay out 3.9% additional. If you need to pay with a credit card there is still a way though i don't take them directly .... and that is that Pay Pal will take the card and pay me through normal services. Any time that a deposit is taken for any special arrangements or "holds" it is non refundable. To have these rules work in your favor all transactions need to be completed or deposited on w/in 5 days.

Buyer pays shipping. Shipping will be determined on a case by case basis so as to include size, weight, distance, insured amount and method requested. Shipping is paid by customer both ways on any returns.

All parties buying through the mail or offsite are allowed a 48 hour approval/inspection period on ALL guitars, unless discussed otherwise, to make sure they are keeping their purchase (but not amps to keep shipping delicate amps back and forth to a minimum and not on parts either ... too many guys doing "switcharoo's" or wrecking them trying to install them, break them and then trying to send them back ... sorry ... you have to reap the behavior of so many others). Buyer pays shipping. Payments must be received within 5 working days of anything placed on HOLD. When you receive the guitar your 48 hour return includes 2 days to receive it and approve or not and you MUST contact me. WE DO STRICTLY adhere to these rules. I don't mean to sound tough here but you would be amazed at the liberties taken in recent past! Thanks for your understanding and adherence. If an instument is put on hold and any special arraingements have been made like a deposit and hold followed up by another payment that is considerd a sold instrument since it has been taken off of the market for other possible buyers. Its not fair to us to hold it off the market and then decide against it so make sure to ask ALL questions and we will be thrilled to give you an in hands description. The same poicy holds true if you have us change the guitar (like "set it up for left handed etc ...). If that kind of work is done thats on an instrument that is a done deal also. Thanks. ALL Outside the USA sales are FINAL due to extended "visits" through customs and some countries laxed attitude about shipping on time.
