So happy I found your forum. Great reading here, and clearly dedicated and passionate members.
I am the owner of what I *think* is a 1968 Gibson Dove Tenor, serial #899564. From what I can tell, it came from the Kzoo factory. I'm having a hard time, however, finding any other Dove tenors out there, which scares me. Below are some snapshots of the guitar. It is pretty bruised and battered, but still sounds quite nice.
My question is: is this a rare version? Is it a fake? Any info would be deeply appreciative. Also, any info on where I can have this spruced up (in the NY/NJ area).
Thanks in advance!!
