My Favorite Axe: 1973 Gibson Dove

arrica rose gibson doveArrica Rose & the …’s (the dot dot dots) is a California folk-pop group who draws inspiration from timeless records made long ago. The music hints at Americana, classic pop, and vintage rock all dressed up in Andrews Sisters-esque harmonies, strings, horns and pretty noise.

WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU

It’s the first instrument I busted out the credit card and invested in. For me it represents making music a central part of my life. Although I play electric more often in my band, I write mostly on this guitar.

WHAT IT SOUNDS LIKE
