Gibson Acoustic Hummingbird 2018 - Alpine White
A Legendary Acoustic with an Onstage Personality
This Gibson Acoustic Hummingbird acoustic-electric guitar is in a class by itself in both looks and sound. The distinctive finish and pickguard have set it apart since its inception in the 1960s, and this edition of the famous instrument brings the past and present together with player-friendly enhancements. Gibson Acoustic softened the fingerboard edges on this Hummingbird, making it a supremely comfortable instrument to play, and the addition of an LR Baggs Element VTC pickup system gives you excellent onstage sound. We know you'll love this Gibson Acoustic Hummingbird. The legend continues.
A classic design improved
Gibson acoustic guitars have a reputation for being some of the best acoustic instruments out there, with well over 100 years of experience and craftsmanship behind them — and the Hummingbird is no exception. While staying true to what makes these instruments legendary, Gibson Acoustic loaded this Hummingbird with an updated LR Baggs Element VTC pickup system for amazing onstage tone, and the new oil finish penetrates deeply to maximize your tone. It's the same guitar that made the Hummingbird an icon, but with the modern touches today's players demand.
Dressed up dreadnought style
The Gibson Hummingbird brought a subtle new body style and a bold new look to Gibson's dreadnought family. The Hummingbird was Gibson's first square-shoulder body shape. To emphasize the importance of the new model, Gibson outfitted the original Hummingbird with such eye-catching features as double parallelogram fingerboard inlays, multilayered binding, and a pickguard engraved with a hummingbird and blossoms. These appointments are translated perfectly on the new Gibson Acoustic Hummingbird.
As discriminating guitarists immediately discovered, underneath the Hummingbird's flashy ornamentation is an amazing acoustic guitar. This incarnation of the Hummingbird brings you the same square shoulder design, with a solid Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides. These tonewoods come together to give the Hummingbird a sweet, warm tonality that sits well in countless musical situations. The guitarists at Hiendguitar know how important playability is, and no Hummingbird goes out the door without the famed Plek-assisted setup, offering you great action, spot-on intonation, and a buzz-free instrument that is just about perfect.
