A killer Dove from Tomson! The mid seventies were the turning point for Japanese copies, the accuracy of the replica's became notably closer to the real thing and the quality definitely shifted up a gear. Our TGF351 is a great example of this.
Coming out of the Kiso Suzuki factory in the 70's were the quality was superb as were the Luthiers that worked there. The Suzuki Violin company was established in 1887 however they didn't start building guitars until the early 50's. It frustrates us when people describe these old acoustic's as 'cheap' and 'poor imitations'. This is frankly unfair and not at all true. These guitars are extremely well put together by craftsmen that had been making musical instruments for decades! And oh man do they sound and play lovely, especially when they've existed for such a long time and seen there fair share of playing!

Our old Dove is looking very good for it's age. With set it up with Daddario 11's and adjusted the action to 2.75mm on the bass side and 2.5mm on the treble side. Ready for another life time of love!
