Just got this 1976 Dove Custom .............. pretty much a time capsule. No evidence of play wear!
It's a Norlin............ and I love it............;)

Now that's one beautiful guitar !!!!!
Came from Germany! It's even got the original owners laminated warranty card , never seen that before. A good while back there was a for sale posting on this site of a beautiful and rare 70's Dove in a gorgeous tobacco sunburst, It was in mint condition too but the guy never answered my emails......

Fantastic!!! The art on the pickguard looks completely intact.
Doves are simply awesome.

Yeah, there's no play wear at all ! must of sat under a bed. It also never had a neck re set like most of these do, the tech had to file the saddle down a bit before they listed it for sale. Not even tarnish on the case latches.
It has no label inside, it never had one so no sign of glue etc....
I 've always wondered of that makes it a Nashville guitar, because the serial number stamping is different also than my other labelled made in Kalamazoo Gibson Doves. I think it was indeed 1976 when production started moving to Nashville...........

Beautiful. I like a Tobacco Sunburst, but your Cherry Burst is quite spectacular. Congratulations.
