Mike McCready’s 1966 Gibson Dove

This is one of Mike’s favorite acoustic guitars. In an interview with the Vintage Guitar magazine (source below), Mike noted that he remembers seeing a Gibson Dove on photos of Rolling Stones recording their album Exile on Main Street at Villa Nellcote in the south of France, and that played a big role in him starting to like these guitars.

I love my mid-’60s Gibson Dove and Hummingbird. I also have a newer Doves in Flight from the Montana factory; it’s so beautiful.
