From a company that has brought the guitar world so many
great originals, the Hummingbird stands out strong and proud. Introduced in
1960 as Gibson’s first square-shouldered dreadnought, the Hummingbird arrived
at the dawn of a new era in music, and was rapidly embraced by several prime
movers on the scene. 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’ 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. This particular model includes the minimalistic L.R.
Baggs VTC pickup for accurate plugged-in tone and a special Honey Sunburst, Lacquer Finished, Double Bound.
