Beautiful 'bird with maple back, sides and a bright cherry finish Maple Hummingbird
From the 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 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 music scene of 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 strumming out first-position chords as it is taking the spotlight for flatpicking lead lines 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 as it is, quite simply, one of the finest acoustic guitars available today. Available for a limited time with beautiful maple back and sides.
Each guitar includes a black hardshell case with plush-lined interior, owner's manual, Gibson's Gold Warranty and Gibson's 24/7/365 Customer Service.
