The Dove acoustic guitar was initially released in 1962 at the famed Gibson & Epiphone factory in Kalamazoo, and it quickly became one of the first acoustic guitars to become a rock and roll classic. Beginners and experts alike may now enjoy the Dove's traditional tone acoustically or through the inbuilt Fishman® electronics. With a Limited Lifetime Warranty and Gibson Brands Customer Service, Epiphone stands behind every guitar they create. There is no battery supplied. A 9-volt battery is required to operate your truck.
