Pros

Perfectly seated from the start - does not require additional setup or adjustment

2 agree

Combines elements of Gibson's Dove and Hummingbird guitars - soft, rich tone with cutting acoustic "bite"

1 agrees

Neck is thin and solid - feels similar in to a 1960's Les Paul in terms of playability

1 agrees

Phenomenal craftsmanship - moustache bridge, hand-carved tuners, abalone trim and mother-of-peal dove inlays are indicative of world-class luthier work

1 agrees

A true collector's item - customized, made-to-order construction makes the unit truly one of a kind

1 agrees

On par with the best offerings from Martin and Taylor - surely one of the finest acoustic guitars in circulation

The Gibson Doves In flight Acoustic Guitar is a high-end limited edition acoustic designed by Master Luthier Ren Ferguson.  The Doves In Flight features 28 individually engraved doves which Gibson claims are "all hand cut from genuine abolone and mother of pearl". The fingerboard is constructed of ebony and also features sixteen of the engraved doves. Gibson states that the rolled edge design of the fingerboard provides a more comfortable feel for the user. 

Additional features of the Doves In Flight guitar include hand engraved Grover tuners with a 14:1 gear ratio all of which include moving parts cut for exact meshing. The guitar body is a square shoulder dreadnought design with a top constructed of AAA-grade Sitka spruce and back and sides of AAA-grade curly maple. The Doves In Flight acoustic guitar also features a hand-scalloped radiused top bracing inside the body and a double-ring rosette with an abolone-filled middle.
