The Gibson Hummingbird Stunning Modern Classics Series Model, a famous instrument since 1960.
New features for 2016 include an upgraded pickup system, engraved truss rod cover, high gloss finish and premium Plek setup.
The Gibson Hummingbird is the original and famous honey-toned beauty, which brought a subtle new body style and a bold new look to Gibsons dreadnought family in the sixties. In the hands of everyone from Keith Richards to Gram Parsons, it quickly proved itself equally adept at folk, country and rock, and excelled at many of the crossovers genres in between that helped to set the scene for the ’60s.
Much of the Hummingbird’s appeal lies in its versatility. However you attack this flat-top, it pumps out rich, deep tones, and is equally at home thrumming out first-position chords as it is taking the spotlight for flatpicking leadlines further up the neck. Its spacious mahogany body and sweet, select Sitka spruce top are more than capable of nailing down the rhythm in the hands of a rock and roll sideman, or of accompanying the most nuanced performance under the fingers of today’s alternative singer-songwriter. Made in the image of the original, in Gibson’s acclaimed acoustic facility in Bozeman, MT, today’s Hummingbird lives up to its pedigree, bringing you all of these capabilities and more as, quite simply, one of the finest acoustic guitars available today.
