General Your general opinion of this product. I ordered this from the "Dent 'n Scratch" list. There was maybe one tiny blemish in the finish of the top. the other thing I see is that the outside edge of the guitar is not as red as I'd expected, it's more of a dark brownish orange. It's almost as if the factory forgot a step in the staining process. However, it's still the most beautiful guitar I've ever owned. Besides, the cosmetics didn't affect the playability at all. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Solid Sitka spruce top and jumbo body size makes for a big reverberating sound. Not as big as a Martin, but it's still satisfying to pluck the low E string and feel the top vibrate. The tuners are Grovers. Setup was perfect out of the box--no need to adjust. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Neck suits me. Action was perfect out of the box. Controls are in the soundhole. My most negative observation is placement of the battery. It's in a little velcro bag at top of sound hole, under end of fretboard. I had to pull all the strings off to get at it. That would be most inconvenient at a gig. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Tone: nice full tone. If you're expecting it to sound like a high-end Martin, you'll be disappointed. But it's pretty loud with no amplification. The Fishman Sonic Core electronic package seems to work well. I was able to use the guitar at church without any hassle. Action How was the action out of the box? Action out of the box required no adjusments Finish How did the stain or paint job look? As I said previously, mine looks more orange than red. Maybe that's why it was sold as dent 'n scratch. One barely noticeable blemish on the top. Other than that perfect. Lots of nice detail in the binding, and the inlay in the bridge and fretboard are a nice touch. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Just got it, can't comment.
A fantastic guitar at a great price

General Your general opinion of this product. I'm on a Budget so I read reviews and looked at vídeos online for the best value and it was the epiphone Dove hands down. And I must say the customer service At AMS is top notch other company's can take a lesson from these guy's and gals Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? It seems to be well made. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? The neck is very nice, easy to play. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The tone is What I was looking for bright and crisp. Action How was the action out of the box? Perfect. I might go with lighter gauge strings when I change them. But thats it Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Beautiful. Reliability How has it stood up over time? Like anything if you take care of it it will last a Long time.
This guitar is sweet!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? I own a 2000 Epi Dove (Honey Sunburst) and a 2004 ( in Natural top) finishes, and found them dependable . Both are of Korean manufacture. The Chinese manufactured Epi's are sounding as good as those two. I had often thought of installing tranducers, (undersaddle), to use in a live setting, but held off. Both have held up over the years, no issues w/ construcion. Reliability How has it stood up over time? My two acoustic Doves have no issues at the moment. Action is still low to my liking. finish has held up, and the solid tops, get better w/ age. General Your general opinion of this product. I also have two Epi Hummingbirds ( 1994 and a 2004 ) and a Hummingbird Artist ( 2009) and found them to be dependable. the Dove, w/ its maple body, is a great sounding/bright, and sounds good in the mix while on stage. A great addition to the Epi line to anyone playing miked in a band, and wishing to upgrade on a budget. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? I like the feel of the necks, not "chunky", not "real thin" Good action. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Maple bodied acoustics will sound a little "brighter" than their mahogany bodied cousins, and the Dove is no exception. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The " sunburst top" in the illustration , looks "more faded" like their Hummingbird Artist, which I really like !!!!! the neck seems to have the same "faded" look. Action How was the action out of the box? Epis usually have low action right out of the box, Never had to do anything to mine
