If the guitar has cherry back and sides, split parallelogram inlays, and a fancy pickguard with a pearl dove on it, then the guitar is a 1970s Alvarez lawsuit copy of a Gibson Dove. Gibson sued and Alvarez drastically changed the model. Can U provide a description of the guitar that you have – include such factors as condition and playability. An Alvarez copy of a Gibson Dove in very good to excellent condition sells for $200 to $300 on ebay. Richard : I have this guitar that was left to me by my father in law. Could anyone tell me anything about it. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
