Overview

Originally introduced in 1960 as Gibson's first square-shoulder dreadnought acoustic, the Hummingbird has evolved over the years to establish itself as a very popular all-rounder.

Vintage design specs including a AA Sitka Spruce top and Mahogany tonewoods

Similarly to the first wave of Hummingbirds to hit the market in the early 60's, the 2016 Vintage Hummingbird benefits from a AA sitka spruce top and Mahogany back/side construction. The resulting tone is light, snappy with great projection. The use of spruce offers a nice balance between the warmer, rich tonal palette of mahogany with plenty of top end detail. The thermally cured process used for the top wood replicates the aging process on the cellular level for that legendary Gibson Acoustic vintage sound and appearance. You can't really go wrong with a Hummingbird - if you're after an all-round acoustic that sounds great for both chord strumming and fingerpicking styles, this is it!

Additional appointments on the Vintage Hummingbird include a Round Profile Mahogany Neck, Rosewood Fretboard, MOP Parallelogram Inlays, Gold Gotoh Tuners, Traditional Rosewood Belly-up Bridge. Also includes a protective hard case and Certificate of Authenticity.

The new 2016 Hummingbird Vintage reflects the appearance and performance of Gibsons early iconic instruments.
