Body and Finish
This big-bodied, square-shouldered dreadnought is built from the classic tone wood combination of Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides. All solid woods with a tonally advantageous advanced X-brace made of scalloped spruce braces supporting the top. All this, and a hand-sprayed nitrocellulose lacquer finish in vintage sunburst, help the Hummingbird Pro echo the great Gibson flat-tops of 50 years ago.
The Hummingbird Pro carries the classic hardware accompaniment seen of several legendary Gibson flat-tops. A “belly-up” Indian rosewood bridge and bone saddle keep it all tonally true at the business end, while Grover Rotomatic tuners, a common upgrade of the ’60s combine a timeless look with outstanding tuning efficiency.Neck and Headstock
The guitar’s neck and headstock are made in the classic tradition of the original 1960 Hummingbird Pro, with the 25 1/2” scale length that many players prefer in a large-bodied flat-top. Carved from a single piece of quarter-sawn mahogany, and topped with a rosewood fingerboard, the design incorporates Gibson’s lauded 17-degree back-angled headstock, which contributes greatly to the instrument’s resonance and sustain.
The Hummingbird Pro and Hummingbird Pro EC is protected by a Gibson hard-shell case with blue plush lining. Each guitar comes with a Gibson Acoustic owner’s manual and a Gibson Gold Warranty.
