The classic Dove style acoustic first introduced at the legendary Gibson and Epiphone factory in Kalamazoo in 1962 became one of the first acoustic guitars to become a recognized rock and roll icon. Now, both beginners and professionals can enjoy the classic sound of The Dove plugged in with the Fishman Sonitone soundhole preamp and Fishman Sonicore pickup system, designed and built with the integrity you expect from Epiphone. Unplugged, the Epiphone Dove Studio can easily drive an acoustic band. But plugged in, The Dove Studio can hold its own with drums and electric guitars.

The Epiphone Dove Studio Acoustic/Electric has a beautiful Violinburst color finish and features a solid spruce top with 5-ply white and black binding. Spruce is a rich and complex tonewood that begins to breath and improve with age the more its played. The more you play, the better it sounds!  The body back and sides are made from select maple for a punchy, bright tone. The body back has single ply white binding. The hard maple 25.5” scale neck has a SlimTaper “D” profile and is glued to the body using a dovetail joint and Titebond glue. The Pau Ferro fingerboard has singly ply white binding and features a 12” radius with 20 medium frets, a 1.68” nut, and pearloid parallelogram inlays. The bridge is made from carved rosewood and has pearloid dove inlays just like vintage models. The saddle is compensated and is made from imitation bone. The classic “Dove” tortoise shell style pickguard is easy to spot on stage and is one of The Dove’s most famous features.

Epiphone is proud to re-introduce the classic Epiphone Dove Studio Acoustic/Electric with the superb Fishman Sonitone preamp and Fishman Sonicore pickup system. Fishman is an industry leader in bringing a guitar’s true acoustic tone to bigger stages. The Sonicore pickup is set underneath the rosewood saddle. The Sonitone sound-hole preamp is an active preamp mounted in the soundhole with easy-to-access mounted rotary controls for Master Volume and Tone adjustment. Now you can make your adjustments during soundcheck and even fine adjustments on-the-fly during your set. No more running back and forth to your amp or the soundboard!  Finally, your tone is in your hands right where you need it. The active preamp is powered by a single 9-volt battery. You can connect your Epiphone Dove Studio Acoustic/Electric to a PA or amp of your choice with a standard 1/4" instrument cable. Batteries typically last up to 100 hours.  

The Epiphone Dove Studio comes with Grover 14:1 tuners and nickel strap buttons, and a combination 1/4" output jack and endpin. Case not included.

Would buy again


This guitar sounds great and for the price is a fantastic deal



Fantastic Purchase for the price..


I play with freinds. I own ALOT of guitars. Although I'm a lefty I learned to play right handed guitars. Still enjoy finger picking right handed. I have mostly Taylor acoustics. Saw this and had to have it. And thanks to Matthew XX2230, he made sure I got the guitar when I was supposed to. And from the bottom of my heart, I thank you Matthew. This is a beautiful guitar that sounds as good as it looks. For the price, you simply won't find a nicer, or better playing guitar. Epiphone has always made good guitars. Just because the Gibson name isn't on the headstock doesn't mean a thing. I own a lot of American Gibson's and American Fender's. I'm very pleased with this purchase.




Incredible value for a lovely guitar


This is a beautiful acoustic-electric guitar in mint condition. It is opening up nicely after playing it daily for a few weeks now. This is the first maple body/back acoustic I've owned, most of mine are mahogany. It has a sweet bright voice which is lovely for country and country rock music. The neck is a very slim profile especially at the head, and a slightly narrow nut width which is perhaps best suited to smaller hands or more slender fingers. All in all I'm really happy with this purchase, fantastic price for a really wonderful guitar. Thank you Sam Ash!



I would purchase this guitar again.


A tremendous guitar and classic design for a not a lot of money. Great sound and greater action. Stays in tune and the pick up is stellar. I recommend changing the strings to your preferred type. Some quality control issues (Velcro inside came off. Easy fix that doesn't affect playability) All in all would recommend



A great-sounding affordable acoustic


I bought this as a Christmas gift to myself. It arrived on time, in perfect condition and sounded great right out of the box. I'm a bit more than a casual player, but not a professional. Nevertheless, this guitar has become my go-to for knocking around alone or when I'm playing with friends; and it looks great too.



Great build quality!


This guitar provides beautiful sustain at an easy to manage price point. If you're looking for an playable student guitar this is the one.



no regrets


from a novice - looks great, sounds good - i was looking for a $200 guitar but this one checked all of my boxes so i sprung for the extra $$.......



Great Value


I'm always amazed at the quality of Epiphone guitars. I own a Dove Pro, SG Pro and a Thunderbird Vintage Pro Bass. All 3 are phenomenal! I'm very pleased with my Dove. As usual, Jordan Kellogg provides A++ service.

Amazing value for the money!


Amazing electric acoustic guitar straight out of the box. Playability, sound and fit/finish is excellent! Purchased two, one for myself and the 2nd for my girlfriend so her son, who is a professional musician, could have a guitar to use when visiting. He was very impressed with this guitar and amazed at the quality for the price!




Love this guitar


Epiphone has done it again love love love this guitar I have owned many guitars but this is the best by far
