Andy Manson Dove 1 1994

Andy Manson has been a legendary name in the industry for many years. His artistry is unique, his guitars are unique, and the tone his guitars produce is unique. Many of his Clients know this, and that's why his list of famous clients includes names like Andy Summers (Police) Jimmy Page & John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin) Ian Anderson and Don Felder (Eagles) to name a few. His guitars are always impressive, and this Dove I Dreadnought guitar from 1994 is no different.

Deep, growling, warm, full; these are all terms we could use for describing the sound of this instrument. It responds to the lightest touch and is equally suited for playing rhythm guitar as it is for playing some light and sensitive fingerstyle. The classic combination of rosewood for the back and sides - a very pretty set in this case - and a spruce top has been one of the most popular tonewood pairings for ages, and in combination with the dreadnought body shape it is simply hard to beat. This Dove I - the model name does sound vaguely familiar - shows some very pretty and tasteful details like creme body bindings, a multi-layered top trim and rosette, creative pearl triple-dot fingerboard markers, side dot position markers and creme bound rosewood headstock overlay with silkscreen Martin-style logo. 1994 might seem like a long time ago already but the small amount of playwear and signs of use would suggest a much later construction date. It is in excellent condition with aforementioned minor signs of use and playwear, a lacquer touch up on the back binding and newer frets. Although Andy Manson might not be the first brand you'd think of when looking for a dreadnought this instrument is a perfect choice; it offers an open, almost vintage dreadnought sound and was built by one of the most legendary luthiers of our age. Included is a newer, perfectly fitting Hiscox hardshell case to keep it safe.
