Gibson Dove Frank Hannon "Love Dove" #0022


The story behind the "Love Dove" …

The "Love Song", written in 1989 by Tesla guitarist Frank Hannon, conveys infinite hope and confidence for broken hearts. "Keep an open heart and you'll find love again" – there is no better way to express this feeling. Apparently Gibson was so impressed with this enchanting love poetry that they decided to create a special Custom Signature "Dove" model in honor of Frank Hannon's lyrical and musical skills. And here it is: The "Love Dove" model designed with love by the Gibson luthiers. Nomen est Omen! The dove has always been a symbol of peace and love. And if the name "Frank Hannon" doesn't say anything to you yet, you'll certainly be able to remember "Dickey Betts", the legendary guitarist of the Allman Brothers Band ... no one else is the father-in-law of Frank Hannon.

A very special Gibson "Dove"...

The basis for the "Love Dove" was the Gibson Square Shoulder model "Dove", which has been proven since 1962. The strong flamed maple body is equipped with a solid sitka spruce top that has undergone an artificial aging process. An antique multilayer binding completes the overall picture. You'll get excited at once when looking at this impressive dreadnought guitar! The beautiful vintage cherry sunburst harmonizes excellently with the 70s-style bridge with lovely peace doves and a hand-engraved mother-of-pearl pickguard with the same motifs. The maple neck features a rosewood fretboard with mother-of-pearl parallelogram fretboard inlays and a bone bridge and saddle. According to the motto of this fine dreadnought guitar, a special "Love" Truss Rod Cover was added. In addition, the inside label features a signature of Frank Hannon. Last, but not least, for live use a LR Baggs Element VTC system of the latest generation was installed.

And this is how the lovely dove sounds ...

Due to the tonewoods used, the "Love Dove" produces an extremely balanced and brilliant sound with great presence, which also has a lot of warmth and a full tone. A sound that is made for emotional love songs and atmospheric country songs.
