Product information - Gibson Hummingbird Vintage Cherry Sunburst

Full solid dreadnought with Sitka-spruce top, mahogany body, L.R. Baggs VTC pickup and case

The historic Hummingbird guitar was the first Square Shoulder Dreadnought in 1960. The lovingly decorated pickguard and the typical vintage cherry sunburst finish still hold the charm of the wild sixties.

The full-bodied Gibson Hummingbird Vintage Cherry Sunburst Dreadnought in classic wood combination produces a warm and powerful sound thanks to a Sitka spruce top paired with mahogany sides and back. Warm basses, assertive mids and clear highs are the hallmarks of this legendary guitar. This makes this Square Shoulder ideal for powerful vocal accompaniment with strumming and flatpicking. The optical decorations of the pickguard, the mother-of-pearl inlays in fingerboard and headstock make the Hummingbird a real gem. With the natural and warm sounding L.R. Baggs VTC pickup, the aspiring guitarist is ready for the stage. Hardly any guitar has shaped the last 40 years of Western guitar history as much as the incomparable Gibson Hummingbird.
